Product Information

  • Required Products: None

A massive tornado representing the Four Elements: Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. Each can be rendered from below as a tornado or above as a vortex. There are two Air Tornadoes - one is very dark and dense, the other is lighter and more translucent. Each has a spinning debris cloud. There are two Earth Tornadoes - one is a giant tropical plant with colorful pistil (seeds), the other is a swirling sand pit. The Fire Tornado projects fiery pattern from the lights and invisible emissive disk. At its base is a spinning cloud of hot embers. The maelstrom or Water vortex includes a separate foam prop for the inside.

Also included is the most powerful force in the universe - a black hole! This prop can be doubled to create a wormhole suitable for star gate travel or transporting your favorite doctor.

These props are huge! The base of the tornado is approximately 33 meters wide (the width of the floor grid), the accretion disk (or top edge) is about 550 meters across, and the full height is about 90 meters. The props can be scaled down to fit figures and smaller scenes, although you may need to adjust displacement when doing so. Check out the commercial thread in the forum for more features, ideas, and product discussions.
