PROPS: Vogon Soldier Puppet Head From Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy (2005)
This is a Vogon soldier puppet head from Garth Jennings' film The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (2005). "The Vogon soldiers are featured in numerous scenes and notably surrounded Arthur Dent's (Martin Freeman) house during the film's climactic scenes."
"Created by the Jim Henson Creature Shop in London, the full-size head consists of a plastic shell covered in foam latex, producing a grotesque appearance. The creature sports a gas mask and exhibits detailed facial features, including glass eyes, large lips surrounded by hair and rotting teeth. A resin grill covers the mouth and LED lights are present on the inside of the grill, as well as around the ears. Accompanying the head is a set of two detachable goggle lenses. The inside of the head features a metal structure with incorporated wiring. The lot comes housed inside a custom-made blue canvas case, with a Jim Henson Creature Shop label reading "Soldier #3". Minor wear is present on the foam latex and the electronics on the lot are non-functional."
"Dimensions: 61 cm x 40 cm x 37 cm (24" x 16" x 14 1/2")"
