I was in Garden Ridge yesterday and went to the Halloween section, I found the coolest skeleton!!! I have been looking for a Bucky but didn't want to pay full price. Well Garden Ridge has an inbetween model. The skeleton comes in regular white and a cool black antique decayed color. I bought one of each.

The material is kind of like a Blow mold Blucky. But it seems a tad stronger?
But unlike a blucky it is jointed with screws and pins like a BUCKY. It is 5 feet tall and the face and hands are very Buckyish not like the Blow mold cheesy Blucky. Overall I am impressed with the new skeleton. Here are pics of my 2 and a half year old daughter right out of the tub with him LOL. They are $49 a piece and worth EVERY PENNY

those skeletons are awesome for the money. I got one of the white ones last year. I removed his head and mounted one of my Boris skulls on there. I plan on getting at least one more this year. That is a good price. They are going for a bit more online. :)

It would seem Garden Ridge stores are sparce across our nation -- and they don't have any online ordering practices. That's really too bad. Those skellies are gorgeous.

Are they as light weight as a blucky and are the bones hollow and crushable like one too?
They are fairly light, but no, this will not crush like a Blucky. Much more rigid. I stepped on mine a few times last year by accident. LOL

The most you could do to this guy would be to strip a screw, or pull it from the plastic (either which can be fixed by installing a larger screw. :D

Those are great! They look, and sound, just like the "Bargain Basement Barney" skeletons that are being sold by places like Skeletonstore.com now. Unfortunately you need to be a reseller or previous Bucky's Boneyard customer to get a price as good as that!!

Nice find!!

I know its a little early for this but keep them in mind after Halloween. I picked up 5-6 of them last year after Halloween for 1/2 price. Shipping on all of them was a flat $12 if I remember right!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!!! If someone wants me to go to garden ridge please PM me and I will do it.
Hey I already took mine and added him to my dungeon scene. I think I should have gotten him in white because it would have shown up more against the background. But my hubby loves the black skelly he says it makes it look old.
