A hero animatronic Scorponok tail from Michael Bay’s 2007 action blockbuster Transformers.
Two Cybertronian races, the Autobots and Decepticons, come to Earth and carry on their ancient war, with a clue to how to end it held in the hands of teenager Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf).
This tail was made for the production and appears in the scene where, after their base was attacked, the surviving soldiers trekked through the Qatar desert, tracked by the Decepticon known as Scorponok, who ambushed them outside a small village.
The arachnoid robot was brought to life on screen almost entirely using CGI, the only physical components made were the head and tail. The talented team at KNB EFX created this piece specially for the scene in which the tail was recovered and examined aboard an aircraft, momentarily reanimating and attacking the soldiers once again.
The full-size tail is built around multiple fastened steel segments, covered in similarly segmented fibreglass armour-plating that is decorated with metallic grey paint, dressed with rivets, and given scuffs and an aged patina. The tip of the tail features pointed mandibles. Running through the centre of the rig are lengths of steel cable and rope that allowed the puppeteers to curl and twitch the tail on set. It remains in very good condition. Due to the large size of this piece, customers should request a shipping quote before ordering.
