UPDATE and solution (26 March 2012):
That’s a first, nobody solved the riddle. And I thought you scifi buffs would recognize this classic right away:
 
Title card of 'Tobor the Great' (Sholem 1954)
And here is Tobor unveiled, while the tube containing him sinks into the ground
 
'Tobor the Great' (Sholem 1954)

SHOLEM, LEE. 1954. Tobor the great [motion picture]. Los Angeles: Republic Pictures.

      That’s a nice guess, but no, it’s not Lemmy Caution … here’s a hint: He, who is inside, is not human.
