I'm working on a reality show and need 2 latex soft foam filled T-rex heads and 2 pterodactyls within two weeks. they do not need to move, I can do that part.
there was a guy that had one in the Dark Zone, anyone know that company? I seen a pterodactyl before too, not sure where and how long ago it was?
Any info would be appreciated, Phil Miller

I made 22 years ago, hangs outside, made of sheet metal, Bondo, steel rods, copper tubing and pvc...it's the "raven", of Ravens Grin Inn.
Of course that stiff, boney beak can't possibly grin, therein lies the mystery....
..but when he grins, Watch Out! (probably too late for you)

Dear Phil,

I know for a fact our Animatronic vendor will have some rebuilt Dinosaur props at the show next week for inexpensive prices. We recently went over a list of things they are bringin. You can pick them right up off the National Haunters Convention show floor all working and tested live and take them home to NJ/Delaware.

Hope that helps!

PS - I mailed you out a packet on Friday, so check for it in your mail Sat or Monday at the latest since your local to me.

I just tried Johnson's website, there is no email or phone number on their site. anyone have their email?
I know Scare Factory sells a T-rex but I would take a chance ordering it because I can bet I will not get it in two weeks. I will have to make them myself if I have to.
Rob, I got your passes today, I will check it out. Thanks all, Phil

If you have to build them, maybe this guy can offer you some advice: http://www.halloweenforum.com/general-halloween/86201-jurassic-park-haunt.html

He not only had an animated T-Rex head in his home haunt but a pterodactyl too.
