    They've got a BONE to pick with you!

    Latest addition to my collection...a pair of Skeleton Warriors! I love these guys.
    The sculpt and paint detail is off the charts, and the chrome plated eyes are extra creepy.

    The skull shoulder pad armor is a plus.

    They do look pretty good.

    I have a full page shot of wave two...the sculpts were fantastic, BUT...due to some parental concerns over the wave 1 figures being too grisly the bones were painted in bizarre colors like blue, orange and green, which seriously diminished their appearance.

    I've seen these quite often in the wild (last time 2 carded ones at a Half Price Books), and quite like them, (but haven't actually bought any yet). However, form the thread title my first thought was that it was about Jeff Smith's Bone action figures...

    Keep in mind when collecting these there are three versions of the figures. The first edition numbered ones have the most paint details. The second edition un-numbered ones have less paint detail. Then lastly there is the Replay reissues that were exclusive to Kaybee. They have bare minimal paint detail. The Skeleton Legion Skullcycle and Skeleton Legion Warhorse were not reissued and are slightly harder to get than the figures.

    Nice figures and way ahead of their time. Sadly the line was pretty much dead on arrival because the villains were issued first and the heroes weren't available for months later. Princess Talyn was never released along with the amazing bone Dragon and Skull Playset.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    ^ Yes! There are even more variations of the numbered figures...Baron Dark comes with either red or purple bracers, and the feathers(?) on his shoulder pads can be either purple or gold. The skull on his waist can have any combination of painted or unpainted eyes and mouth, and his headdress can come with an amber, red, purple, blue, or teal gemstone. I've seen every possible combination.

    Yeah, all the variations add to the fun of collecting them. My Baron Dark is the red bracers with purple trim on the shoulder pads one. The skull around his waist is also totally painted. Really cool looking high quality figures that never took off. On the upside they are really affordable and pretty easy to hunt down considering they are around 25 years old now.
