HauntCon 2020 is in the books and we saw some really good Halloween animatronics. We also saw some, well, props that can be improved upon. The idea is there but the execution may not have been the best in the world. Typically after HauntCon I upload all the new prop videos to Youtube. People tend to chime in in the comments and talk about what they like and don’t like about each prop. The new Animated Clown Prop from Morbid Enterprises got a ton of reaction in the comment section.
If you haven’t seen the prop in action please check out the video below.
The prop is a miniature clown. When activated the little guy’s head starts bobbing and a little demon baby head pops out of his belly. I bet you didn’t see that one coming. There is actually an entire line of these little props but I thought the clown was the best one, if that is a thing.
It’s not known what exactly the little clown will sell for but I would imagine it will be in the $100 range. Typically each retailer is different so you will have to shop around. You might find him cheaper but when you add in shipping and handling it is about the same as the cost as a brick and mortar business like Halloween Express. It is very unlikely this guy will be at Spirit Halloween this fall.
Now for the fun stuff. Here are some of the best comments on my Youtube page.
This is so bad in every way
I’m not saying that this is the worst prop ever, I’m just saying it’s worse than that :/
While these are harsh they are pretty much on the money. But you have to keep in mind that Morbid Enterprises makes cheaper, more affordable props for those who can’t afford $300+ animatronics.
There is still more stuff coming down the pipe. Stay tuned!
