The English Mummy 

The Walking Mummy

by Tony Lackner, Harold Voit

(c. 1980,1982)

In the 1970s, German inventive powerhouse Herbert Martin Paufler created a number of versions of the mummy. In 1980 he showed them to his friend, the prolific and creative, Tony Lackner who in 1982 went on to create one of the most popular and widespread versions of The Wandering Mummy (Die Wandernde Mumie) released by Harold Voit and Zauber Zentrale (and also later Ace Place).

This was the first walking mummy I had ever seen, and I was immediately smitten, like so many before and after me.

Effect: Two sarcophagi appear. One has a mummy inside, the other doesn't. The story revolves around how the Egyptians used to protect themselves against "tomb robbers" who were common at the time. The mummy is placed in a sarcophagus and the lid is closed; When the tomb robbers broke into the sarcophagus for the pharaoh's treasure, which was always buried with him, they found nothing... and left empty-handed. The mummy was of course well preserved in the second sarcophagus!
