Released from the Propmasters Collection, we are proud to be able to offer the original hero under-control Marionette head of leading character 'Sam Loover', utilised throughout the series.
Joe 90 was Gerry Anderson's subsequent 'Supermarionation' series to 'Thunderbirds', released in 1968. The series provided a unique blend of his highly developed puppetry techniques with live action.
The marionette head is beautifully constructed, a truly outstanding testament of the level of craftsmanship that was involved in the show. The rear of the head detaches to reveal the inner mechanics of the operating mechanism for the eyes and mouth. This was the unique 'under-control' operated head, complete with it's complete control system, utilised for close up shots and where space was restrictive.
Formerly part of the Sylvia Anderson Collection. A truly outstanding show-piece.
