I posted this week's 25% off sale on Halloween Items the other day for RiteAid Pharmacy under the Coupons/Discount area of the forum. Someone commented on the skeletons under that post. Thought I should create a thread here to discuss them, and put the photos of them, including some closeups, on this thread.
The RiteAid skeletons (reg. 59.99) are like the Walgreens ($30) ones from what I can tell with the exception that they have been reinforced with metal screws, metal wires and zip ties for added stability and longevity. Pretty much what most haunters will have to do to their Wallys a bit down the road when they start falling apart. Has already happened to me on one I purchased last year. Other haunters on the Wally thread have had similar experiences in the year they owned theirs. Not a big deal probably for those who already repair their props, but might be something not-particularly-handy-with-the-tools newbies might want to consider when purchasing.
As the coupon section mentions the skeletons are also 25% off right now. My store had 4 out and not sure if there were more in the back.
Here's the photos I took this a.m. Look at the screws, wire connectors and zip ties (visible in the second photo) at the joints in particular. Looks like a considerable amount of modification to the Wally guy IMO.
The feet toes are joined. I forgot to take a picture of his hands. Sorry I didn't get a better full length photo as well.
They had some other interesting props there. They had a giant foam skull again (reg. 19.99). Gray wolf mask. Not as much costuming compared to what I recalled from last year. Sorry did a quick run through and don't remember much else.
