When digging around for a picture of the cylinder from Prince of Darkness I ran across this picture and thought -- WOW, this would make an awesome take on the grave grabber mechanism. It's a brilliant piece of Photoshopped artwork.
The biggest challenge I see really is the fact that it's entirely skinned so it'd probably have to be covered in latex or silicon - unless someone has a better approach.
I'd love to redo Joe Rombie similar to this as it would fit much better with the style of the rest of the haunt. But I know I just don't have the time or money unless a simple solution presents itself.
