A new skeleton showed up. It's a diecast COO Model skeleton (scale 1/6):

Reposting a little review from anon in the last thread: >>7684058

>Anyone else get their Dokuroman skellies yet? I'm a little disappointed, to be honest, but only a little.

>+ They are EXTREMELY lightweight, so crazy leaning poses are possible without a stand
>+ They hold together way better than I expected
>+ Smooth, easy to manipulate joints that are easy to pop in and out
>+ They look nice, and are relatively anatomically accurate
+ Elbows, hips, and knees have great ranges of movement

>- There is no backwards neck movement at all. They cannot look up even slightly.
>- Hinged jaw is a nice extra, but it's a little loose on some and the tooth sculpt is so shallow it might as well not be there, making them look like Mr. Bones.
>- Shoulders get maybe 15 degrees of outward movement at best, you will not get much out of them
>- GITD one has weak glow--big particles of GITD powder are visible in the plastic under a blacklight.
>- Feet are sculpted realistically--this was a mistake. There are two contact points at the heel and mid-foot, and this combined with very small feet makes them surprisingly hard to stand/balance even in basic poses. They should have just gone with an unrealistic, but stable, flat foot.

>It sounds like I have more negatives than positives here, but really, I'm not mad at em. They're decent additions to the skelly collection. I just wish they were done a little better. And also I hope OG Dokuroman isn't gone forever, cause those are better toys overall.

>These are dark times for skeletonkind. Homefully Halloween will bring some new goodies.
Hell yeah, it is. Big Pose skellies are back at Bl, though, so at least there's that. As for a Argonaut skeleton rerelase, I imagine it's a rights issue. That doesn't really stop them from tooling up a new skull and releasing it with non-Argonaut accessories, though. Unfortunately, Kaiyodo seems wrapped up in capeshit.

That's something many of us have been saying since a long time here
It would be a easy money maker form them, someone had said/make a guess that they haven't done a reissue because Kaiyodo have lost the licence, but can't stop them from making a rebrand as a generic enemy from generic JRPG game as said by anon on >>7705732

Basically Revoltech Argonaut Skeleton Meets fill-in-the-blank Time Period/Military Subject here, though this quickly devolves into "throw a skull and skeleton hands on all the Revoltech things".
Either that, or forcing Freeing or Max Factory to make a Gaikotsu Shotenin Honda-san figma.

I forgot that reboot, but as I have got any of these figures I can't really give an opinions about them, I think Anon-ze or another anon did a little review about them in the past

Yeah, pretty much just 1/18 generic fantasy figures. I have a few and they're pretty fun, but some of the articulation, especially in the ankles, is pretty disappointing. Great accessories though, the green robe wizard is my favourite and he comes with a bunch of cool stuff

If anyone is looking for a more chibi type skeleton try the Treasure X stuff, they're usually rather expensive for what they are but some of the skeletons are rather nice and you're guaranteed to get a treasure chest of some type out of it and a random accessory that could be gold colored and metal.

Also most of the wave 1 and 2 figures and dragons are being clearanced out at Walmart, should be like $2.50 - $4 instead of the regular $10 - $15 normal price

I want that. What's this history on these?

Also, after playing with the Kaiyodo skeletons some more, they're just okay. Like, I dont think they're really worth the price. I have bother the old Pumpkin ones and the pirate ones. The pumpkin ones may have better articulation but the joints and heads can easily snap or come off ( they were meant to do that but it's annoying). Pose skeleton can be a bit frustrating because you dont get 100% human articulation but they are aesthetically pleasing.

Can someone rank the skeleton lines so we can debate what is the the best and worst of modern skeleton figures?

>What did you think about the October Toys Skeleton Warrior reboot, such as it was?

I liked the figures that October Toys made, even with the odd scale (I prefer 1:15 over 1:18). But, the only figure that made any sense in that line was the plain Titan skeleton, which could be bought in multiples, and dressed/equipped differently for variation. Too bad they never got to the skeleton Guards/Soldiers. It's a bit vague about what happened to Oct Toys, but they apparently put all their eggs in one basket to try and Kickstart a Grimskull figure, which did not succeed, and then they spent MONTHS on radio silence and then they closed down. Not certain as to the current availability of their unsold stock.
>>
Whoh, hang on there, folks! it took some looking, but I've located where to buy the October Toys skeletons, direct from George Gaspar. He has 2 entirely new color variants, produced after Oct Toys closed up shop. He's still getting more mileage from those molds, i see.

No doubt about the quality of the OT skeletons. If you don't mind a bit of stylization (they're not anatomically accurate) they are a good deal for the money. I'm surprised to see the transparent crystal blue one up for sale. It was originally a Kickstarter-only offer, but now, anyone with 15 bucks can get one!
>>
>>7711443
Hey? Here's a question, do you prefer your colored colored skeletons with a wash or without?
>>
GOD DAMN! I missed that beauty in the back

>>7711457
Eh. For how small they are, it's fine. Pose skeletons were like anime aliens.
>>
>>7711458
With a wash. However, the transparent skeletons don't hold a wash very well (diff type of plastic) so I ended up having to remove all of my washes from it. The plain skellys hold washes very well.
>>
>>7711488
>Eh. For how small they are, it's fine. Pose skeletons were like anime aliens.

Actually, in proportion to the OT skellys, the Pose skellys make perfect kiddos. Correctly proportioned to be a 6 year old if the OT is the parent and the Pose skelly is the child.
>>
>>7711502
I was thinking of buying a black and a brown wash. I think Brown would be good on the bone colored ones but but anything else would need black. Have you ever played around with the was colors?
>>
A few of the OCtober Toys skellys in colors that are not currently available on George Gaspar's website. Decent price to get the plain ones.

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.A0.H0.Xoctober+toys+skeletons.TRS1&_nkw=october+toys+skeletons&_sacat=0
>>
>>7711506
Just the black wash is fine. It's a dilute black anyway. Technique is to give the skelly a bath in water and Dawn dishwashing soap to remove any factory oils. Let it dry. Apply the wash with a brush, letting it get into the grooves. Let it sit for 5-10 mins. wipe off with a soft rag. That should bring out all of the details. Seal with acrylic clearcoat. I wouldn't recommend spraying, since that could interfere with the articulation. I spray the clearcoat on a card and use a brush to paint it on the skelly. Only works with the plain skellys, not the translucent ones or the glow in the dark ones.
>>
>>7711527
Yeah I was gonna asked with the sealer part. You think a thicc liquid sealer, but only using a small amount would be fine? Would I have to deal the whole figure to make it even ( ie: not have raised clear texture where the sealer was added)?
