At SDCC next week, October Toys will be release four Skeleton Warriors action figures, to celebrate the SW 20th Anniversary. First up is Baron Dark. Now Baron Dark is a pretty cool name. Baron Dark. We are considering naming our first child after this Skeleton Warrior.
Priced at $20 (£13), Baron Dark is a 5inch fully painted PVC action figure. Baron has 26 points of articulation (more than The Toy Chronicle team put together). Baron comes with removable sword, cape, loin cloth, and arm guards (for a total of 21 pieces) and will be packaged in full color collectors window box.
Up next is the Deluxe Bone Titan Skeleton.
This monster sized 5inch fully articulated PVC action figure is priced at $15 (£10). Again with 26 points of articulation. All the details are paint washed. We also have the Bone Titan (below), which is priced at $10 (£7) and is a solid bone colour.
Our favourite of the bunch however is the Glow-in-the-Dark Titan Skeleton. Why? Cos it’s GID, obviously. 5inches tall, 26 points of articulation but with the added glow-in-the-darkness. Priced again at $10. Bargain.
October Toys ain’t done though. They will also have Skeleton Head Zipper pulls. They transformed some of their Titan Skeleton heads into fun zipper pulls to add a little undead flair to your hoodie, backpack, purse, keychain, and anything else you can clip it on! Pretty neat for $3 (£2).
October Toys don’t stop there. Oh no. They’re bringing Surprise Boxes. Everyone loves a surprise box, right? For $10 (£7), you can six random October Toys mini figures and three stickers. They’re a $15 value too, so you’re already winning.
October Toys will also have Series 1, 2 & 3 of OMFG in various awesome colors! They will probably also have some of the new OMFG Series 4 on hand (depending on arrival date).
So with all the above goodness from October Toys you’d think there was no other time for anything else. Well, you’d be wrong. October Toys are putting on two toy panels for your pleasure.
