PostSubject: River Dolphin movie prop   Fri Sep 07, 2012 12:59 am

After a very long wait, I have finally received my dream figure, a 1:1 scale replica of an amazon river dolphin (the front half only). The figure is a prop, purportedly from the movie cocoon. It has mechanics inside that allow the mouth to be opened and closed by pulling or pushing a lever. The figure is 41 inches tall (aprx 1 meter). These pictures are from the previous owner:

He is made out of a hollow fiberglass core that is covered in a thick rubber skin. The mechanics inside are metal. The core extends into the nose but not the flippers. The eyes are also rubber. Tonight I gave the eyes a light coating of clear gloss so they glisten as if they are made of glass.

From what I can tell, yes. The size varies between males and females and between different subspecies. Very little info on river dolphins is available, but I am reading sizes of 1.5 - 2.5 meters for amazon rivers dolphins. I think mine would be about 2 meters or bigger if he had a full body.
