October Toys Skeleton Warriors Bone Titan Skeleton Action FigureI'm a fan of October Toys. They host the Glyos forum, and put good stuff out - it's one of the few companies where I feel a strong need to try anything they make because, generally speaking, it's good, cheap, and the outfit is run by nice people. I was totally OK waiting a few extra months for the Bone Titan Skeleton, a 5-inch super-articulated figure created, I assume, to share tooling with Baron Dark in order to get a little more bang for the tooling buck. I did the Kickstarter to get the Baron, this Skeleton, the glow version, and a Skeleden - and that seemed like enough. I now regret skipping the clear blue one, because the Titan Skeleton mold is quite good and because these were intended to be scaled to 3 3/4-inch figures, it's the perfect nemesis to the Jakks Pacific Link figure from the Zelda games as well as other fantasy lines in this scale. Which I am now blanking on, I'm sure there must be another one - but hey, it's a good fake Stalfos.

This figure cost me about $10 as part of a Kickstarter bundle, and they were $10 per figure as an add-on. Which is obscenely good if you compare it to other figures in this scale - it's roughly on par with the Power Soldiers of Power Lords, except unpainted, unaccessorized, and slightly taller. The unpainted bone plastic color has a great look given the lack of detail, were it not for the astonishingly well-pained Baron Dark you'd see this as an amazing milestone - especially for the price.

The articulation is pretty amazing - you get rocker ankles, swivel wrists, ball joint elbows, shoulders, hips, and knees. There's a ball-jointed neck as well as a separate piece at the base of the skull, and there are two waist joints - a part of the spine can be popped out so you can easily adjust this figure into a shorter skeleton if you're in to the whole army building thing. Since the entire neck pops off at the base of the body, you can also easily swap out the default head for anything else Onell Design used - Pheyden, Buildman, or whatever floats your boat. It looks a little goofy, given how short their necks are, but you've got options.

October Toys Skeleton Warriors Bone Titan Skeleton Action Figure

The figure is assembled through many of the smaller Glyos pegs, which sort of reduces your ability to really swap parts with all other figures. You still can mix and match between Titan Skeletons, but the dream of changing all parts with all figure is unfortunately one that has proven to be impossible to maintain. Many parts can be swapped between figures, but when you get right down to it these figures - like Power Lords - are best swapped between their own brands. Since there are very few weapons in Glyos lines, you'll be glad to know the large bony hands are big enough that they could hold weapons for Transformers or Masters of the Universe in addition to smaller weapons like Link's Master Sword or a lightsaber. It's versatile.

I snagged both the glow version and the bone version, and I can't say one is superior to the other because a) I love glow figures, and that one glows brightly while b) the bone was just plain looks good. It's a fun little toy, it's cheap, and it's well-designed. Since Mythic Legions won't be a Glyos line, this is currently the only human skeleton game in town for Glyos and as such, you should consider giving it a shot if you're in the Glyos ecosystem. Really what you should get is Baron Dark, but I'm sure if you snag a Titan Skeleton and like it you'll want more. Painted eye sockets or some other wipe would make it amazing, but for ten bucks it's plenty good. Indie toy fans, the gauntlet has been thrown down - see if you can do better for the price. I bet you can't.
