I got one of the Home Depot Skellies from last year. It looks like the Skellies that Big Lots sold in the post from Ghost from Spookie.
Yes - I was joking!I think this is the blow-molded (?) version that you can get at a few places (Spirit included) for 22/23. The parts aren't bonelike, think tubes, the rib-cage is one big piece. I think you might be disappointed. These skellies have their uses, especially where you need one that is light to climb walls, climb into a chimney, go up and down on a rope. That kind of application.
Last year was my first big year for buying stuff, and bought one of these guys last year, like you, just to see what it was about. Either I am becoming a better shopper, or last year seems to have been the year that acceptable skellies (non blow-molded) dropped below the $50-$60 price point; I cleaned out Home Depot when I found some at $30 in early September, and also got some for even less (maybe $19?) at Walgreens in a post Halloween sale, but that seems to have been specific to that one Walgreen's, and was not available at others.
EDIT: I think I misinterpreted the earlier post and they were ribbing on the blow molded guy. Never mind. Stupid, stupid, stupid...(me that is).
Hmm. I still see them. I do have problems seeing a lot of photos on my phone. Right now i am on my desktop.Kindo I saw your photos last night when I dropped in on this thread. This morning however all of the photos are missing with just a blue box with a ? mark inside in their place. Do you know what happened to them? They were great poses showing various ways the prop could be positioned and showing the joints and connector parts.
Kindo, I like your structure in progress BTW. Is it attached to porch posts? Love to see a photo taken further back for a wider view. We have a covered porch area with posts so you've got me curious. Thanks.
I received my two skeletons from Costume Party yesterday. Quality is definitely less than Pose-N-Stay but works for my purposes. Attached are some pictures. One thing I initially liked was that the hands could be twisted. But, the plastic was too soft/thin and it felt like it would break if I forced it. I don't like the fact that Costco is only selling the new Pose-N-Stay Pirate Skeleton.....not as versatile in my opinion. Okay if you only want to do pirates but what about other themes?
