Skeleton Warriors Fight For Resurrection on Kickstarter

In a world where a pony evolved into the daughter of Cthulhu can be granted life via Kickstarter, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE! That said, surely Skeleton Warriors can make a HUGE return, right? Waaaay ahead of its time, this 90's cartoon we like to call "Harryhausen's Wet Dream" was short lived, but the toy line it spawned was far more magnificent than most around it. Now, the fine folks at October Toys think it's time the creatures of bone and awesome get a second chance to haunt your toy shelves. PREPARE FOR THE RETURN OF SKELETON WARRIORS!!!

From October Toys - We love toys! We love monsters and skeletons! To make a long story short, our fondness for the Skeleton Warriors figures from the 90's led us to investigate the possibility of redesigning and updating the characters...starting with the bad to the bone Baron Dark!

Originally launched in 1994, it happens to be the 20th anniversary of the Skeleton Warriors brand, which seems like the perfect time to revamp and update these ridiculously fun characters!
As toy collectors ourselves, we are designing these figures with collectors in mind and drawing inspiration from both the 90's cartoon characters as well as original concept art provided by the awesome team at Goddard Film Group, LLC. 

Possibly the coolest feature of these new figures is that they are Glyos compatible!

The Glyos System, developed by the insanely talented Matt Doughty of Onell Design, is a system for making action figure parts interchangeable and is currently used by several independent toy companies. These figures utilize Glybrid style joints, which allows for a combination of traditional insert molded articulation with the swivel based Glyos fit functions. We have been working closely with Matt throughout our development process to ensure maximum compatibility while still maintaining the unique characteristics of the Skeleton Warriors.

That means you can break these figures apart, reassemble them, and even use the parts interchangeably with other Glyos System brands such as The Four Horsemen's Power Lords, Outer Space Men, and even classic Onell Design Glyos figures!

Baron Dark

  • 5" fully painted PVC action figure
  • 17 modular official Glyos compatible pieces
  • 26 points of articulation
  • Comes with removable sword, cape, loin cloth, and arm guards (for a total of 21 pieces)
  • Packaged in full color collectors window box
  • Available in original colors and Kickstarter exclusive Lightstar Crystal Translucent Blue
This is designed to be a 1/18th scale line of articulated PVC action figures. Baron Dark is the biggest of the main cast of characters and clocks in at 5" tall with 26 points of articulation and sword! Future figures will remain in scale; so for instance, Prince Lightstar will be 3 3/4" tall.
As you can see, we have Baron Dark ready to go into production as the first figure of our updated Skeleton Warriors line. That's where you, the amazing Kickstarter community come in!
Along with Baron Dark, we have organized some great incentives including a Titan Skeleton (comes in glow int he dark too!), Traveler Skeleden, a Baron Dark collector's statue and more!!

Head over to October Toys' Skeleton Warriors Kickstarter and choose your monster today!!
