Gemmy ZULTAN Animated Speaking Fortune Teller

 
One

The mystical Zultan - Animated Speaking Fortune Teller!

Zultan the fortune teller is creepy as all hell. Simply approach the display box where Zultan's head is hiding behind closed curtains and he will automatically detect your presence using sound and motion sensors. The curtains fly open and Zultan's fully-animatronic evil floating wrinkled head emerges and his spooky LED eyes begin to glow and look around. His mouth moves to every word as he greets you and then converses with his skull in the crystal ball (which also talks back to him) to reveal your fortune. Even better, set Zoltan to manual mode and literally become him while using the included wireless microphone. Whatever you say, he speaks...


"Zultan speaks !"
