Storm Collectibles Golden Axe Skeletons Review

  Storm Collectibles Golden Axe Skeletons Review 

Starting as a young boy, I've had an obsession with skeletons whether in some scary room of the dead or warriors fighting them in old school movies.  Skeleton toys were a big thing in the 80's when I was growing up but we never had a true skeleton to play with.  Enter Sega and the game Golden Axe, where you could enjoy beating up on some very cool skeletons.  So many cartoons in the 80's had some kind of skeleton bad guy or weird scene with skeletons in the background or rising from the dead.  Golden Axe became that game where I could play out fighting these creepy skeleton warriors. Fast forward to today and Storm is releasing figures from the game including the skeletons! Enough about my love for them, let's take a closer look to see how well Storm did at pulling off highly articulated skeletons.


Pros
  • Insane articulation 
  • Excellent body sculpt
  • Movable Jaw
  • Interchangeable hands
  • Sword and Shield from Golden Axe
Cons
  • Excellent figures no CONS
Figure
I really love these figures, and the fact they come as 2-packs is icing on the cake. I currently own 6 of the skeletons and I find myself playing with them all the time! You would think since they are thin they wouldn't stand well, but they can hold so many different poses and meet that Storm standard.  I've had fun giving them different weapons and putting them in all kinds of goofy poses just to see what they could do. Once again, I find myself keep coming back to these figures out of all the new stuff I have on my desk to play with.  The sword and shield are well made and have excellent paint applications. I've also tried using different toy line accessories on the figures and it seems a lot of different toy lines fit well with these sets. They are a little taller then a 1/12 scale and fit the Storm 7" scale perfectly. 
Overall
Listen, Storm Collectibles is currently rivaling all other companies as my favorite collectible company.  I'm always extremely happy with their products and their price range.  I've bought many different skeleton type figures over the years but these are by far the coolest skeleton figures ever! I'm considering buying 1-2 sets more because they are just that good.  The price point of $60 for a pack of 2 is really good, and I have no complaints.
