Stand this hooded life-sized animated Gatekeeper prop in a shadowy corner or on the porch and watch the frightful goings on. The light and sound activated creature holds a lantern which it slowly swings from side to side - is it to menace or entice? Blood red eyes glow from beneath a tattered hood - there is no face - but those demonic eyes seek to penetrate the souls of the foolish few who dare to take a second look. Do you have what it takes to follow the lantern to your destiny?

Comments about Life-sized Gatekeeper Animated Prop :

This is a great new prop for the price. The arm movement is a bit to fast so make sure you anchor the base well. Take care when attaching and removing the head, as there are lots of wires that can get caught and pulled out of connectors. A multi function switch would be cool so you can operate it…

BOTTOM LINE Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Life-sized Gatekeeper Animated Prop :

The gatekeeper leaned to his left believe. The weld broke on the stand before we even got him put together. I took it to my shop and had the weld fixed. He still leaned.

Comments about Life-sized Gatekeeper Animated Prop :

The lantern light worked initially, but poor construction so it no longer works, even with new batteries. Same issues with voice. Does't talk consistently. Not worth the $$$ - and I recieved $30 off - still not worth the price.

Comments about Life-sized Gatekeeper Animated Prop :

Was so excited to get home and put this together and it all fell apart, literally. The welded peices were broken so he could not hold his arm. I returned it to the store and the employee told me that the one they had on display had collapsed on it's own. I hate it was such poor craftsmanship, he…

Comments about Life-sized Gatekeeper Animated Prop :

Overall, we're very happy with the Gatekeeper prop. However, the parts bag that contains 7 screws and a cotter pin was missing. The missing cotter pin appears to be spare because the unit already has two in place and the instructions don't mention it beyond the parts list. The screws are for…

Comments about Life-sized Gatekeeper Animated Prop :

Great piece. Looks great and very easy setup. Not exactly how sensitive the light sensor is. Will use it when it is very dark to see how little light is needed to set it off. Love it.

Comments about Life-sized Gatekeeper Animated Prop :

Ok folks, here it is. . first you'll have to secure the base.Forget the screws,drill it out and use nuts & bolts making it striaght(without the added weight).Then counterbalance the added weight with a small dumbbell to touch the floor.Add round weights to both sides of base if needed.A red spot…
