“Triple stones… This must be copper bones!”
Hey you guys! Factory Entertainment’s band of rejects have recently returned from their very own hunt for One-Eyed Willy’s treasure and have unearthed something that was thought to have been lost forever – the actual screen used prop of the Copper Bones Skeleton Key as featured in 1985 cult-classic movie, The Goonies.
Working with the authorization of Warner Bros. and Amblin, Factory Entertainment was able to locate the actual screen used prop, which had been stored in the private collection of a prominent film maker.
The FE team was granted access to the piece and was able to capture all of the fine detail that had only been seen by the few people fortunate enough to handle the prop since the film wrapped over 35 years ago.
Using this newly available reference, our team got to work on replicating the prop by creating a digital sculpt, followed by a 3D printed prototype. The prototype was then used to create a casting master, ensuring that everything present on the original prop would remain intact on the replica.
