LOVE HIM but falling apart!
He is one of my favorite animatronics but towards the end of the season, his mouth began to tear on both sides. I contacted the manufacturer several times and have heard NOTHING back. SO disappointed. I have heard of others having this issue so definitely a manufacturer defect.
Response from SVI Product ExpertNov 9, 2021
Hi Kelly K, Thank you for the rating and review. We're sorry that your Gravedigger is tearing at the mouth. We would like to help you, please email us at customerservice@svius.com if you haven't already. If you already contacted us and are waiting for a response, we apologize. Our company has grown a lot in this past year and we're dealing with higher volumes of outgoing product. This also means higher volumes of customer service concerns. We're experiencing some growing pains right now, but we will get to your email if you sent us one already. Another issue is that a lot of companies are experiencing delays with the global shipping crisis. Although this hasn't impacted our products as much, it has impacted our replacement parts. We hope you can understand and we appreciate your patience. We are deeply sorry and we are working on ways to avoid shipping delays in the future. We hope you had a great Halloween and hang in there! Thank you, SVI Product Expert Team SVIUS
    An imposing and scary fellow...
    A truly tall and spooky animated Halloween prop. Not bad at all. This is one of the better animated Halloween props out there as it has plenty of movement and sounds (phrases) and lights for the price. Use year 'round with various costumes! See photos.

      Exceeds Expectations
      Gravedigger was easy to assemble and disassemble took less than 20 minutes alone. The sensor is perfectly placed and worked everytime. I was impressed with the volume control, used outdoors and was able to be heard at a distance. I like the fact that it is dc and not battery operated. Did use tent stakes to keep it from falling over in the wind. Placed it right in the center of graveyard, Excellant addition! Also used 2 - 55 gallon garbage bags to cover when it rained. I highly reccomend!

      As good as we hoped
      Works great! Only gripe is the face mask should be a few inches longer to tuck into the shirt.

        Gravedigger in my cemetery
        We love this Gravedigger! He's awesome! He rotates. He's got a very cool, deep voice, and it's loud! We highly recommend it, for your Halloween display. Tony O.

          Completes my graveyard
          Best animatronics from Home Depot this year compared to the other party store or Seasonal Halloween stores. I usually wait for a sale but this guy was limited stock in local store so I bought him before sold out. Impressive size , and also liked the volume control. I only place him in the graveyard for outdoor gatherings but keep indoors to protect from the elements. Only negative was the neck of mask was too long and stuck outside of shift when motion is activated. Glad I was able to get him.

            voice and movements are perfect
            This is my first animated prop and he is perfect for our graveyard theme. He is tall 6’5”. His voice is deep and has a twang to it. He sounds like Bix Tex. The movements in this arms and jaw is great. And I love that he lights up

              Good Idea But Design Flaw
              Great product but there is a design flaw. The mask latex is not strong enough to support the aggressive jaw movements. Gorilla glue seemed to Have at least temporarily done the trick

              Had to
              Had to complete my graveyard scene so this guy fit the bill perfectly. He's very simple to assemble. Has volume control. and motion effect is great. Has multiple "sayings" and fit in perfect with the scene was going for.
