This stop motion puppet is possibly the most accurate Cain puppet outside of the original!
Candyman as he is known on the internet has built one of the nicest looking stop motion puppets I've seen. Most puppet makers use clay, latex and flexible materials. Not so many make fully machined puppets like this one outside of just a few people. Candyman has done an excellent job, it's great that he shared the entire process on his web site. Phil Tippett would surely be proud! You can see and learn about the original Robocain puppet here if you aren't familiar with it.
