If I owned some Will Vinton figures I would be soooo tempted to use them for my own lame stop-motion work. So it is probably good news that I do not own any of these remarkable pieces. That does not mean I cannot look. This Will Vinton Piece, which is being sold at Hake’s is:
12” tall full body figure of dinosaur host Rex used in the 1987 Christmas special “A Claymation Christmas Celebration.” Character appeared as part of a narration duo. Figure sits atop 4.25x5x.5” tall “Will Vinton Studios” pressed board base. Character is composed mostly of clay with hard plastic eyeballs. Figure has some wear as designed to be moved/molded frequently to achieve the appearance of movement/transformation. Large crack at bottom of coat with smaller cracks at right shoulder and left elbow but figure remains structurally sound. Fine overall.
