THE TROLL

The world's only walking, talking animatronic Troll, measuring a mighty 9ft tall and 7ft wide. The Troll had to be a movie-quality walking, talking monster, able to move around at live events in forests, fields or on floors. We used the latest in silicone skins and paint effects to ensure he was as real close up as in promo pics. The armour was beaten out of aluminium to save weight. All leathers, skin and metal were treated to a paint process that aged and rusted the creation to give him a movie-quality look.

The world’s only walking, talking animatronic Troll, measuring a mighty 9ft tall and 7ft wide.

THE BRIEF:

The Troll had to be a movie-quality walking, talking monster, able to move around at live events in forests, fields or on floors.

THE BUILD:

We used the latest in silicone skins and paint effects to ensure he was as real close up as in promo pics. The armour was beaten out of aluminium to save weight. All leathers, skin and metal were treated to a paint process that aged and rusted the creation to give him a movie-quality look.

The head was packed with servos and circuits to enable blinking eyes, frowning, jaw, lip and full head articulation. Jaw movements came from a special sound-to-movement circuit, while integrated speakers give the voice a thunderous boom.

The Troll has been all over the UK, Europe and the middle east at a wide range of live events, providing great photo opportunities and walkabout interaction.
