Skeleton Warriors Glyos Compatible Action Figures

Skeleton Warriors 5" fully articulated Glyos compatible Baron Dark action figure and skeleton!

We love toys! We love monsters and skeletons! To make a long story short, our fondness for the Skeleton Warriors figures from the 90's led us to investigate the possibility of redesigning and updating the characters...starting with the bad to the bone Baron Dark!

Originally launched in 1994, it happens to be the 20th anniversary of the Skeleton Warriors brand, which seems like the perfect time to revamp and update these ridiculously fun characters!

As toy collectors ourselves, we are designing these figures with collectors in mind and drawing inspiration from both the 90's cartoon characters as well as original concept art provided by the awesome team at Goddard Film Group, LLC.

Possibly the coolest feature of these new figures is that they are Glyos compatible!

The Glyos System, developed by the insanely talented Matt Doughty of Onell Design, is a system for making action figure parts interchangeable and is currently used by several independent toy companies. These figures utilize Glybrid style joints, which allows for a combination of traditional insert molded articulation with the swivel based Glyos fit functions. We have been working closely with Matt throughout our development process to ensure maximum compatibility while still maintaining the unique characteristics of the Skeleton Warriors.

That means you can break these figures apart, reassemble them, and even use the parts interchangeably with other Glyos System brands such as The Four Horsemen's Power Lords, Outer Space Men, and even classic Onell Design Glyos figures!

Baron Dark

  • 5" fully painted PVC action figure
  • 17 modular official Glyos compatible pieces
  • 26 points of articulation
  • Comes with removable sword, cape, loin cloth, and arm guards (for a total of 21 pieces)
  • Packaged in full color collectors window box

This is designed to be 3 3/4" scale line of articulated PVC action figures. Baron Dark is the biggest of the main cast of characters and clocks in at 5" tall with 26 points of articulation and sword! Future figures will remain in scale; so for instance, Prince Lightstar will be 3 3/4" tall.

As you can see, we have Baron Dark ready to go into production as the first figure of our updated Skeleton Warriors line. That's where you, the amazing Kickstarter community come in!

Along with Baron Dark, we have organized some great incentives including...

Skeleton

  • 5" fully articulated unpainted PVC action figure
  • 17 modular official Glyos compatible pieces
  • 26 points of articulation
  • Available in bone and glow-in-the-dark

This skeleton figure is the perfect complement to every skeleton army! This 5", PVC, unpainted Glyos compatible figure comes in a bag and is the basic building block for all sorts of action figure adventures. We have two versions available - bone and glow-in-the-dark!

Traveler Skeleden

  • 2.75" PVC official Glyos action figure
  • 13 interchangeable parts
  • 12 points of articulation
  • New axe accessory (first melee weapon for Pheyden)

We have collaborated with Matt Doughty (Onell Design) to create a fantastic new addition to the Glyos Universe...meet Skeleden! Part Pheyden, part skeleton, a special version of Skeleden will be available exclusively through this Kickstarter campaign.

Please note this is a work in progress picture. More pictures coming soon!

Baron Dark Collectors Statue

This incredible 15" Baron Dark statue was sculpted by the talented Owen Oertling and is being offered as an extremely limited collectible piece exclusively for this Kickstarter! Modeled after the Baron Dark statue from the finale (episodes 12 & 13) of the Skeleton Warriors cartoon, this resin statue is limited to only 10 pieces!

Please note that this picture is of the unpainted prototype, not the final product. It will be painted to resemble stone like in the cartoon.

Please note that all pledge levels include shipping in the United States.

Stretch Goals

If the interest and support are there, we are ready and willing to continue this new line of Skeleton Warriors immediately! We already have prototypes ready for our first two stretch goals which include the Skeleton Guard and Skeleton Soldier.

If we make it past those goals, it's on to the Legion of Light with Prince Lightstar, Grimskull, and Talyn!

Once unlocked, stretch goal add-on figures will be available for an additional $20 each and will be delivered separately from Baron Dark & Skeletons at a later date to be announced.

Why Skeleton Warriors you might ask?

Growing up as action figure fans and monster aficionados, we were naturally drawn to the crazy fun Skeleton Warriors toy line when it debuted in 1994. It more than delivered on the rad skeleton aspect and while they were awesome figures overall, it was always a little disappointing that the skeletons lacked much articulation and were basically stuck in a very limited amount of poses. That, combined with the fact that we were teased with a series 2 that was never produced, led us to investigate the possibility of creating brand new, updated Skeleton Warriors figures...and with your help, that's exactly what we're doing! We appreciate your time and sincerely thank you for checking out our Skeleton Warriors project!
