Test footage shared by animatronics artist Matt Denton shows Greg Townley, the animatronic head used in Edgar Wright‘s 2013 film The World’s End. The head features realistic eye and jaw movement with detailed skin for a convincing final product.

This is test footage and images of the animatronic head built for Edgar Wrights “The World’s End”. This is a fairly simple head with only eye and jaw movement but has just enough functionality to sell the gag! Used during the fight sequence in the toilets.

Waldo Mason “Decapitated Teen “Blank” Head This is the first reveal of the Blanks in THE WORLD’S END after Gary, played by Simon Pegg, gets into a fight with a teenager in the Cross Hands toilet culminating in the teen’s head being knocked off against a urinal! The head was a self contained radio controlled animatronic model, with eye movement & blinks, frown, jaw open & close and slew. The mechanics were built by Gustav Hoegen & supervised and performed by Matt Denton.”
