Can anyone translate all that shit? Does each skelly come with all those heads or are we looking at variant skeletons?

It would seem each capsule comes with a pack 'o shit. Skull, hands, base and firearm.

I think the skeleton was released last year, and these are accessory kits. It's Revoltech related, though I can't tell if it's regular or the Mini line.

The weirdest part isn't that some guy went all 'Human Centipede' with them, but that the toy company apparently put an ass-socket on them that fit the neck ball so the guy could once he wanted to, lol.

Although, unless the guy glued them solid, the daisy chain loop of them all standing on one leg is a pretty impressive demonstration of the joint tightness.

I really wish someone here would catch a clue and give us $5 skeleton toys with that kind of articulation. I guess cool toys is a perk of living in a homogeneous, high-stress society where everyone is looking for a little distraction.

Managed to find a US seller. If they aren't thieves I should have one next week.

My god, the ball joints! The articulated scapulae!
I'm not gonna lie, the HACKS skeleton will probably be less finicky and more fun to "play" with, but for something that originally cost less than $4USD and came out of a fucking capsule machine, this thing has a lot going for it.

Jesus, why can't we do shit like this?

Because American toy companies have to make what WalMart wants to sell, and WalMart does not give half a fuck about your concerns.

Better than the BFS, arguably.
I'm wondering if the Halloween release is gonna make it over here. It's of relatively little value, but I want a jack-o-lantern head for my skeleton.

I don't see why it wouldn't show up on Rakuten. If they do show up I'll put in another order for them and get a couple extras if anyone wants some.

The Japanese usually think of things like that. I've been blindly digging around kanji-tagged Instagram pages looking for pics of these.

I know what to expect, but it's still exciting to see what folks are doing with them.

Hmmm, I'll need to rig something, then. Thanks for checking, though.

It appears Kaiyodo made the spine-to-ribcage ball socket deeper, so they're less likely to separate. That was definitely an issue with the DEVGRU ones.

Did you buy these? I wanna see them!





I bought a full set of the Pumpkin series from the_Archivist, and ended up with a couple of the DEVGRU series skeletons, as well as one of the expansion wave capsules that came with a damaged skull, a bone-littered base, an rifle and gun-gripping hands.

I was actually thinking of sending the pistol grip hands for casting. You're REALLY gonna want gripping hands for these

At the moment bringing them in from Japan is the best bet. Dio Warriors is gonna get the Pumpkin Nightmare set in, and they'll probably be cheaper once supplies in Japan are exhausted.

Get them while they last!

Do the figures available at auc-toysanta | Rakuten Global Market: Pumpkin Nightmare come with a skull?

Awesome, ordering now.

If anyone makes copies of the gripping hands, I'd be in for a set.

I did!

Well, at least the order was placed. Now I have to wait for them to get back to me with the total with shipping.
