Preview CooModel 1/6 scale Human Skeleton 12-inch figure - if only it came with sword and shield

"Jason and the Argonauts" is a 1963 Columbia Pictures fantasy feature film starring Todd Armstrong as the titular mythical Greek hero in a story about his quest for the Golden Fleece. Directed by Don Chaffey in collaboration with stop motion animation expert Ray Harryhausen, the film is noted for its stop-motion creatures, and particularly the iconic fight with the skeletons.

And now coming from COOMODEL: 1/6 scale Human skeleton Body introduced. Note: skeletal material: PVC (to prevent bursting) with Movable joints Material: the particularity nylon stamina PVC (to prevent brittle)

Wouldn't it be COOl if these were actually 1/6 scale skeletons from "Jason and the Argonauts"? All they need is the sword and shield plus skeletal hands that can hold the weapons. Looks like these "hands" are pose-able. If you scroll down to see the rest of the preview / prototype pictures, you'll see a picture of this particular CooModel 1/6 scale Human Skeleton 12-inch figure grasping what appears to be an "air" pistol i.e. holding the gun firing pose but with no gun in hand.

Also these skeletons might be good for building dioramas and creating a post apocalyptic future scene, maybe with some Terminators in them.

The skeleton army was designed, for the most part, to defeat their enemies through sheer numbers by overwhelming them. George Lucas probably drew that inspiration when he came up with the battle droids. See my post HERE and HERE where I reviewed the Sideshow Collectibles Star Wars Militaries Series 1/6 scale Infantry Battle Droids as well as PICTURES of two battle droids side-by-side.

And here's a picture of Jason fighting the skeleton army. Like I said, it would have been awesome if this CooModel 1/6 scale Human Skeleton 12-inch figure actually came with sword and shield. I would buy that in a second if it did ;p hint! hint!

Ya would be cool if it did,ignite figure parts on eday would have that stuff,but like you said hands are no good.or you could heat the fingers up and bend them,don't no if that would work.may just have to try one.but ya i would get one just for that.
