Melting Toht Candle

Why the dribbly face?

Celebrate the greatest special-effects death in movie history
Wax replica of sadistic Gestapo agent Toht – specs, fedora n' all
Thankfully it melts a lot slower than his face does in the film
Doesn't emit a blood-curdling screech as it burns

Description
If you've seen Raiders of the Lost Ark, there's probably one scene that really sticks in the memory. No not that gigantic boulder tumbling after Indy, nor when he shoots that sword-twirling nutter in the market square, nor even when he has that uncomfortable staring contest with a cobra...

No, we're talking about when ruthless Gestapo agent Toht gets his gory comeuppance at the end of the film – you know, when his eyes roll back like a couple of boiled eggs and he lets out a blood-curdling scream as his entire face dribbles off his skull. That bit. Just awesome. He did Nazi that coming.

Whether it left you with nightmares for weeks or just had you repeatedly hitting the re-wind button, celebrate the greatest death in all of cinema history with the Melting Toht Candle. Thankfully this detailed replica won't melt quite as fast so you can really savour the moment.

Face-melting Trivia:
  • The facial cast of actor Ronald Lacey for Toht's famous face-melt scene was made of 'alginate' – the same stuff dentists use to take impressions of your teeth.
Please Note:
  • Just light the wick to set the glorious melting process in motion – there's no need to seek out the Ark of the Covenant and unceremoniously release its supernatural powers.

Customer reviews
"Awesome deal! Well, the only problem is that I'll never actually want to burn this guy. Guess I'll have to buy another (or maybe two more)!"
