Quote from: exleo on Feb 16, 2016, 11:37 pmThe first replica exhibits that were pulled for Longleat and Blackpool did have the stunted head and there were two dummy props made around the same time for exhibits but both disappeared, so there is a good chance the private owner had one of these, although they were never screen used just exhibits, they were replaced by the more accurate versions created for MOMI and for the USA tour
QuoteThe Lomgleat animatronic was built specifically for the exhibit, based on the original moulds so yes had the stunted head, it sat on a small track and repeated a set of movements and phrases with head nodding, tail wagging and ears turning ( the Blackpool exhibit was the same). Due to a short circuit the exhibit caught fire. At the time it was placed inside the console room exhibit in a glass case, luckily this glass protected the Console from too much damage (mostly smoke damage), but sadly the rear of his display area backed onto those of other displays and as a resault a great number of Original costumes and props were either damaged or completely destroyed including Cybermen, Daleks, Cleaners, a Nimon, Gundan robots and the Pharos project telescope model from the story Logopolis.... The giant space station from the Trial of a Timelord was also damaged and numerous older one off costimes completely destroyed...... As to the K-9 exhibit itself, it was a molten lump of melted scrap, totally unrecognisable!
QuoteWith out going too far off topic, do you know how badly damaged the Trial space station was?
