For those that may have missed it, just a quick reminder that October Toys has a brand new Skeleton Warriors Grimskull Kickstarter currently active with just 10 days left to go!
George and Ayleen are keeping this new campaign streamlined and primarily centered around Grimskull himself, with an all new sculpt that features a healthy array of hybrid Glyos joints that once again allow for traditional articulation as well as full interchangeability.
Grimskull was one of my favorite characters from the original Skeleton Warriors toy line (next to Ursak -who would make for a great troop builder), so seeing this new interpretation of the classic design is really satisfying. This new sculpt has some excellent proportions and captures the anti-hero vibe very well.
On a related note, I would love to see George sculpt an Ursak that could also double as a "tribute" to Captain Power! I swear that Ursak looks like he's sporting a slightly medieval version of a Power Suit. Just imagine all the futuristic armored soldiers that could run across the different toy lines.
Or, I could be 100% alone in my fondness for Grimskull's crafty uncle.
If you want to see October Toys continue producing new Skeleton Warriors figures, maybe take a trip over to their Kickstarter page and check it out.
Good luck George and Ayleen!
