Life-Size Animated Old Hag for Halloween

Officially licensed by Disney, this animated Old Hag figure appeared online earlier in 2014. Marketed as a consumer Halloween prop, the apple-bearing Witch moves her head, mouth, and arm.

Plus she talks! The voice resembles that of the film character and says a large variety of lines including:
There's something spooky out tonight, and I think it's you!
Ahhh... yet another creature of the night approaches.
Have you come for a trick or a treat?
Sorry, Halloween just brings out the ghoul in me.
Welcome to my home, my little victim. I mean, my little friend!

Built on a metal frame with a plastic base, the figure is activated by both sound and movement. An on/off button is hidden under her plastic hump. Plugs in to a standard outlet with 5' cord. Dimension: 61" tall, 31.5" wide, 38" deep.

Here she is in action...

Online reviews have generally been positive except for an issue with the Witch's hair falling out. Apparently, "it's not a full wig, but rather, two thin strips that hang down from underneath the sides of her cloak." If you spend the $200 that this figure is retailing for, you might consider also purchasing a nice white wig too.
