"Critter"

 

 
This critter replica puppet was made for a collector who wanted something more interesting than a static display model.

This creature was modelled on one made for the film Critters 2, which were built by the Chiodo brothers and crew. They are cute little blighters until they become hungry, then they become savage little beasties.

The puppet was requested to have eye blinks, eyes left and right, snarl and brow movement.. Servo [radio control] was out, due to the possibility of a burn out or some sort of failure [it needed to be problem proof], so cable controls were the choice instead.
