I have been very happy with these guys in the past
You might also email EFXtech and let them steer you where you need to go. Jhonny is a great guy over there.

Im putting the finishing touches on a singing barbershop quartet for my wifes trick or treat... they have motion front to back, side to side, mouth - up and down, eyes side to side and up and down.... their eyes also light up 5 different colors... much like Skulltronics.... ( ALMOST DONE )
They will be singing "Helter Skelter" by the barber shop quarte called "THE BOBS"
should be awesome.... they look great should be done within the next few weeks
But youd have to throw down with my wife to get one.... shes got CLAWS I TELL YA..... ( AND watch out for flying dishes ! )
I dont know if we have the time or someone to dedicate the time to tackle these but if I would sell them Id kick the markets ASS !
I will try to post the results.....

If you dont want to spend a bunch of dough for a animated talking skull.... you can hack a Borris skull or get a skull from Gemmies ( Available at your local Lowes or Walmart ) use VSA software ( I.E. Brookshire ) and get the skull running for your haunt for a s little as 100 - 200.00 depending on how crazy you get.
( HOW CAN YOU BEAT THAT ? )
you can also make a servo plate ( See 3 axis skull hacks ) insert a servo into the skull for jaw movement, set up your limits for servo movement, buy the VSA software 60.00, get power supplies and control card and build an animated bucky skull for under 300.00 ( Depending on how crazy you get )
Either way - "Not to cut anyones throat" you can build your own and save a lotta cash !

Try haunted enterprises, Randy is great and I have had his skeletons for about ten years.

Have a talk with Bob from Graveyard Skulls....
he is a good man, and he will walk you through whatever it is you need to do.
He helped us program the skulls we built wih the VSA software...
