Today in Tampa, FL, Lowry Park Zoo had a one day tent sale of old props from their halloween and christmas events. All of the Halloween stuff was gone in the first hour!
They had 20-30 full size buckies all for around $15-20 a piece, tons of mannequins, huge scary clown props and more. I managed to grab Zott the Space Monkey, an animatronic prop by Distortions. retail about $5000 originally. I got it for...$15! I took it home and cleaned a thick layer of dirt and grime off him and hooked it up. The pneumatics worked fine. But someone had clipped the wires to the controller for the mouth movement. I'll have to see if I can get it running again. Anyone have one of these props that could share some insight on how to wire it up or better yet, any photos to share?

a little heads up on your part or anybodys part to the forum of the coming auction would have been nice. But it is good you got a nice piece for cheap
