Last month The Propstore of London auctioned off a full size Kilrathi with animatronic head. The costume, standing nearly 7.5 ft tall, was used in the 1999 Wing Commander movie. We don't normally report on auctions before they end as to avoid influencing the outcome, but in this case it probably wouldn't have made much of a difference. The auction closed at an impressive $2,500. You can view the auction page here for a limited time, until eBay removes it. We've preserved the auction text and a couple of pictures below.
From the Sci - Fi movie we are offering an incredible animatronic costume set. This is the main Kilrathi character costume worn by actor during filming. it is currently mounted on a fiberglass body cast of that actor for display purposes - this can be removed to ease shipping if required (please contact us for shipping estimates prior to bidding). The head is fully animatronic with light up eyes but has not been tested since use in the movie - all of the components are still in place and have not been tampered with in any way. The hands feature cable controlled extendable / retractable claws.
The costume is principally made up from fiberglass components with lots of hand sewn and stitched dressing with a heavily padded foam underbody suit. The 'feet' are fiberglass plates built up over the top of training shoes worn by the actor. The shoulders and head of the creature are lifted to create the high of the character by using a lightweight aluminium rigging that mounts onto the actors shoulders - eye line for the actor is through the faux chain mail just below the creatures chin. Standing at an intimidating 90" (230cm) tall x 35" (90cm) wide x 24" (61cm) deep this amazing piece would be the center piece for any collection.
