Description

This item comes from the personal collection of a special effects artist with over 25 years experience in the film and television industry. This artist has participated in key positions on major projects such as:

Independence Day, Nip/Tuck(Emmy award winning), Blade 2, Star Trek and many more.
We now present and make available to you, this fantastic collection of sci-fi and horror figures
hand painted and constructed by the artist. Many of these items are rare and or one of kind.
A featured item from this collection is a tribute replica of the character “Fats” from the 1978 thriller film “Magic” starring Anthony Hopkins and Ann-Margret.
This ventriloquist dummy is constructed with castings from second generation molds from the film and hands sculpted to fit the character. It has left-right moving eyes, blinking eyes, moving mouth, upper-lip movement.
The size is approximately 40″ tall. The figure’s wardrobe reflects the film costume with: t-shirt, flannel shirt, over-alls, black knit cap, and work boots.
Also included are:
  • a one sheet of photos of the original “Fats” figure’s construction,
  • an original double-faced display hanger from the film’s video release,
  • a paper-back copy of the original “Magic” novel,
  • a toy switch-blade (Fats’ weapon in the film)
  •  a professional A&S professional flight&road case that fits to the dummy.
This is the character that all scary puppets have since been based upon. The original theatrical trailer was Fats reciting a frightening child-like poem on camera alone. It was so frightening to audience members in 1978 that many chose not to see the film. Now you have a chance to have this terrifying character in your collection!
“Abracadabra!”

A magician named Corky (Anthony Hopkins) does poorly on stage. When he reports back to his teacher, Merlin (E.J. André), he is told he needs some kind of hook or gimmick to connect with the audience. When he adds ventriloquism to his act, using a dummy named Fats, his career takes off.

Within a few years, Corky is at the height of fame. However, Fats has developed a mind of his own, and wants to control his master. Seeking refuge from his new found fame, he heads to the isolated mountain retreat run by his high school love, Peggy (Ann-Margret), in hopes of starting a new life; but finds that Fats has no intentions of letting him off so easy.

As Corky is trying to rekindle their relationship, his private conversations with his alter ego dummy, known as “Fats,” take on a sinister and self-abusive quality. Fats goes from an amusing character played through his mannequin, into a schizoid-like personality split, in which Corky no longer can discern that Fats is a feature of his subconscious self.
