This is my pneumatic version of a Skelly Coffin Groundbreaker. It's a work in progress, static portion is complete, still have to do the controls and audio.
Top of the coffin is 42", the top of the skelly's head is at 3 feet. He's mounted to a 4-bar linkage that when triggered, he jumps out and up to 6 feet to the top of his head. He only comes forward enough to clear the coffin so you can literally be standing about a foot in front of the coffin and he ends up right in your face. I'll post a video when he's finished, can't wait to unleash this one.

Wow, wasn't expecting it to completely pop out! Is it triggered by a PIR near it? A scare cam on Halloween would make for some fun footage. Awesome work!
Thanks!
It's actually on a remote so I can pick and choose my victims!

That's awesome! Hate to admit it, made me jump a little bit,wasn't expecting it to jump all the way out! Nice work J man!
Thanks!
Mission accomplished! Yeah, in person when you're standing about 2 feet in front of it, it's a pretty darn good scare!

THAT is FREAKIN' AWESOME! Looks great and is going to be a great scare! Why can't Spirit sell still like this? I would totally buy it and put it up front in my cemetery.

Great job, J-Man!

Spent a good part of the day on the controls, didn't think I would have it working this fast but here it is in action. Not sure if I'm staying with this audio but it'll do for now.

Thanks! To be honest, a prop like this is way out of Spirit's league. You have to go to Scare Factory or Poison Props and drop 2 to 3K to get something like this.
