ORIGINAL GARY OLDMAN BUST #01
After recently purchasing the original Jupiter-2 prop used for
filming the 1998 movie. Finding this prop was icing on the birthday
cake! This is the original mold casting used on actor Gary Oldman,
who played the updated version of Dr. Smith. The cast was taken off
the face of Mr. Oldman and used for the alien spider scenes at the
end of the film.
The casting is made of solid plaster, and costed me $100.00 plus $$$
just on the shipping charges. The head piece also includes a life-like
spike rubber hair to add to the realism of the prop. This piece was made
by artist David White. I purchase this item from Paul Harrison of England
on November 12, 2001. The prop was purchased from "Henson's Creature
Workshop" after the film was completed.
