Factory Entertainment's Gillman prop replica looks handy

Should be helpful around the house

I have to hand it to Factory Entertainment, they make some neat collectibles. Among their most recent endeavors is a prop relica of a mysterious web-handed fossil purportedly from the Devonian era that suggests a link between man and fish-man: perhaps best known as a fossilized Gillman hand, as seen in The Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954).

Factory Entertainment's Fossilized Creature Hand is a recreation of the original movie prop, based on old behind-the-scenes photos as well as the film itself. The end result is a neat little curio item that should appeal to die-hard Universal Monsters fans. The replica comes with a limited edition plaque and some promotional materials, all packaged within a box designed to look like a crate.

Hit the jump for a photo gallery and an unboxing video (theirs, not ours).
