Where can I find an animatronic talking skull with multiple movements for under $700?

Good Luck. If you find a source for that price, please let me know. I paid $1350.00 for a Skulltronix's Skull. It is really a great piece, but pricey for just a head. By the time I purchased a skeleton body and light system, I had about $1700.00 in him. However, our seance room will be quite grand thanks to "Squeaky" as we have nicknamed him.

If my Ex is still in Tallahassee you could use her head! Alive or dead, she never so much as took a breath the whole time I knew her, too busy non-stop talking!

It depends on what kind of movements you need. If you can live with just a jaw moving, you can get one of those Wal-Mart special talking skulls (the kind that are wired with a microphone).

There are plans online how to wire them up to plug into a CD player. It's a low-cost way to have a talking skull, and we wired up a dozen of these on the cheap. I can even have two talking to each other by recording two seperate voice tracks with edited pauses. It sounds cheesy, but they work great.

If you're looking for eye movements and turning heads...well, good luck.

He will be selling them for the '08 season.
