Has anyone worked with Harvey Skull over Bucky for animatronics?

Next year I would like to try and do the talking Skull animatronics that I have seen on this site. It looks like most are suggesting the Bucky skull for it, but I really like the Harvey skull since it is more life life. It has a removable skull and hinged jaw like the bucky...but the teeth are way better and you can get it with an aged look. Anyone have any experience working with this skull for this type of project?

I agree with J-Man - This looks like a pretty heave skull for a 3-axis attempt. I have had good success with the Lindberg and have done some blow-mold 3-axis skulls ($4 @ Walgreens) that came out great! For 3-axis movement, weight is really an issue...

Scary Papa - Sorry for the delay getting back to you. For some reason the notification for this thread was going to my spam box. Anyway, sounds like J-Man has answered most of your questions. Here is a PhotoBucket library of the one I did and a comparison video of a Lindberg VS the blowmold skull. I have laser-cut skull plates for both and they use a modified version of the GYS mechanism.
