I remember watching this

I remember watching this movie one Saturday when I just a wee lad.
The skeletons were always the most memorable part.

Best part about the skeleton-men

The Spartoi are actually in the original myth of Jason. They weren't specifically skeletons--more like golems rising up from the ground--but Harryhausen gets definite points for sticking to the source material. It's why I like "Argonauts" far more than "Clash of the Titans".

Also, that scene with them emerging can now be perfectly re-enacted with those new Figuarts multi-part terrain bases.

I love this toy and I agree with everything in this review.

I love this toy and I agree with everything in this review. This toy is pretty much essential for anyone who likes skeletons even a little bit. Fighting with Figma Link, posing ominously with pretty much any other figure, sitting in a chair with a book like a lich king... It's one of the most universally versatile toys I have.

The floppy spine joints are a big problem, though.

The floppy spine joints are a big problem, though. If you need it to stay up straight, you can always turn the joints sideways, but it's really a problem if you want the spine bent just a bit forward or backwards.

Sideways!

Hmm never thought to try turning the joints sideways! I will have to get that a shot! Thanks for the suggestion!
