I've been looking for big animatronic eyes. Something 5-6 inches in diameter that can be programmed or controlled by a joystick or something of the like.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

are you opposed to making them yourself? pretty easy actually.

if you have specific issues, then give me a call if you decide to make it yourself.

Allen this is a repost for a friend who is trying to make eyes move on their famous "talking Christmas tree." Kind of like a Douglas fir... Was hoping they had a kit for her to use.

im in the same boat except my eyeball needs to be 12 inches. it sure seems like a simple project but when u make the eyeball move realistically and blink, its not as easy as it may seem. im doing mine out of air cylinders because of the size
