This is the most advanced full sized Predator animatronic rig ever conceived. Fits perfectly under a Mander AVP mask. This rig contains four independent Futaba ball bearing servos (for smoother movement) powered by a compact wireless remote controller. The helmet is extremely lightweight, composed of fiberglass, padded for comfort and is powered by 4 AA batteries

Actually, on this rig, the upper fang pulls open up and out, like they should, 95% of the masks available are composed primarily of latex, so more intricate movement is limited, ideally, a mask cast in silicone or foam would be the best way to go for animatronic purposes. Unfortunalty, silicone is very expensive and foam falls apart too quickly after repeated use. Celtic has a version of the above rig that was made by Pete Mander, that rig has the lower outer mandiblar fangs extend outward as the mandibles are opening wide. Like they should. The above rig was specifically designed to go under a Mander AVP mask. Pete cast the lower outer mandibles in solid resin, so there is no joint that can be hinged! So when I added the lower swing arms, adding outer extender hinges was not possible. Hope this info helps. Oh and Pete designed and build the Alien animatronic rig I posted on youtube. He is beyond the shadow of any doubt in my opinion, a mechanical genius. His designs are innovative and insanly inspiring. I would love to get my hands on one of his working "Scanner" bios!

Kindest Regards,
