About this project
We love toys! We love monsters and skeletons! To make a long story short, our fondness for the Skeleton Warriors figures from the 90's led us to investigate the possibility of redesigning and updating the characters...starting with the bad to the bone Baron Dark!
Originally launched in 1994, it happens to be the 20th anniversary of the Skeleton Warriors brand, which seems like the perfect time to revamp and update these ridiculously fun characters!
As toy collectors ourselves, we are designing these figures with collectors in mind and drawing inspiration from both the 90's cartoon characters as well as original concept art provided by the awesome team at Goddard Film Group, LLC.
Possibly the coolest feature of these new figures is that they are Glyos compatible!
The Glyos System, developed by the insanely talented Matt Doughty of Onell Design, is a system for making action figure parts interchangeable and is currently used by several independent toy companies. These figures utilize Glybrid style joints, which allows for a combination of traditional insert molded articulation with the swivel based Glyos fit functions. We have been working closely with Matt throughout our development process to ensure maximum compatibility while still maintaining the unique characteristics of the Skeleton Warriors.
That means you can break these figures apart, reassemble them, and even use the parts interchangeably with other Glyos System brands such as The Four Horsemen's Power Lords, Outer Space Men, and even classic Onell Design Glyos figures!
- 5" fully painted PVC action figure
- 17 modular official Glyos compatible pieces
- 26 points of articulation
- Comes with removable sword, cape, loin cloth, and arm guards (for a total of 21 pieces)
- Packaged in full color collectors window box
- Available in original colors and Kickstarter exclusive Lightstar Crystal Translucent Blue
This is designed to be a 1/18th scale line of articulated PVC action figures. Baron Dark is the biggest of the main cast of characters and clocks in at 5" tall with 26 points of articulation and sword! Future figures will remain in scale; so for instance, Prince Lightstar will be 3 3/4" tall.
As you can see, we have Baron Dark ready to go into production as the first figure of our updated Skeleton Warriors line. That's where you, the amazing Kickstarter community come in!
Along with Baron Dark, we have organized some great incentives including...
- Monster sized 5" fully articulated unpainted PVC action figure
- 17 modular official Glyos compatible pieces
- 26 points of articulation
- Available in bone, glow-in-the-dark, and the Kickstarter exclusive Lightstar Crystal Translucent Blue
This skeleton figure is the perfect complement to every skeleton army! This massive 5", PVC, unpainted Glyos compatible figure comes in a bag and is the basic building block for all sorts of action figure adventures. Like Baron Dark, he is a big baddie! We have two versions available - bone and glow-in-the-dark!
- 2.75" PVC official Glyos action figure
- 13 interchangeable parts
- 12 points of articulation
- New axe accessory (first melee weapon for Pheyden)
- Special First Edition available exclusively through this Kickstarter!
We have collaborated with Matt Doughty (Onell Design) to create a fantastic new addition to the Glyos Universe...meet Skeleden! Part Pheyden, part skeleton, a special version of Skeleden will be available exclusively through this Kickstarter campaign.
Please note this is a work in progress picture. More pictures coming soon!
Baron Dark Collectors Statue
This incredible 15" Baron Dark statue was sculpted by the talented Owen Oertling and is being offered as an extremely limited collectible piece exclusively for this Kickstarter! Modeled after the Baron Dark statue from the finale (episodes 12 & 13) of the Skeleton Warriors cartoon, this resin statue is limited to only 10 pieces!
Please note that this picture is of the unpainted prototype, not the final product. It will be painted to resemble stone like in the cartoon.
Please note that all pledge levels include shipping in the United States.
If the interest and support are there, we are ready and willing to continue this new line of Skeleton Warriors immediately! We already have prototypes ready for our first two stretch goals which include the Skeleton Guard and Skeleton Soldier.
If we make it past those goals, it's on to the Legion of Light with Prince Lightstar, Grimskull, and Talyn!
Once unlocked, stretch goal add-on figures will be available for an additional $20 each and will be delivered separately from Baron Dark & Skeletons at a later date to be announced.
Please consider supporting Baron Dark so that we can continue to expand and grow this line with the Legion of Light figures, more bad guys like Aracula and Dr. Cyborn, 3 3/4" skeletons, vehicles, and even the elusive Bone Dragon!
Why Skeleton Warriors you might ask?
Growing up as action figure fans and monster aficionados, we were naturally drawn to the crazy fun Skeleton Warriors toy line when it debuted in 1994. It more than delivered on the rad skeleton aspect and while they were awesome figures overall, it was always a little disappointing that the skeletons lacked much articulation and were basically stuck in a very limited amount of poses. That, combined with the fact that we were teased with a series 2 that was never produced, led us to investigate the possibility of creating brand new, updated Skeleton Warriors figures...and with your help, that's exactly what we're doing! We appreciate your time and sincerely thank you for checking out our Skeleton Warriors project!

Risks and challenges
What about possible production delays?
Good question! We have over a decade of experience producing toys of all kinds, so we are very familiar with the process. We also have four successful OMFG! Kickstarter campaigns under our belt, all of which went quite smoothly (thanks to our awesome backers!). There are occasionally unavoidable delays with these types of projects (i.e. quality control, shipping, customs, etc.), but we have allowed enough time with our expected ship date to account for minor delays. Of course we try our best to keep all of our backers updated throughout the production process and would let you know if anything unexpected came up.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
You can add on any of the available add-ons at any time! Simply use the green "Manage My Pledge" button to the right of the video under the time left, and then add the total needed for whatever extras you want to the total for the level of the pledge you backed at. Then just check out as normal!
Please add the following for the figure(s) you want to your pledge amount:
Baron Dark - $20
Lightstar Crystal Blue Baron Dark - $25
Titan Bone Skeleton - $10
Glow-In-The-Dark Titan Skeleton - $10
Lightstar Crystal Blue Titan Skeleton - $13
Traveler Skeleden - $10
"Bakers Dozen" Troop Builder Skeletons (13 Skeletons) - $120
Once the campaign ends, we will have a system in place for you to let us know which additional figure(s) you want.
We hope so! As you can see, we have several figures set-up at stretch goals for this campaign, so if the support is there, we can start production on these asap. Based on the success of this first campaign, we can also continue with more campaigns in the future to produce the whole Skeleton Warriors cast (like Aracula, Dr. Cyborn, Shriek, etc.) and even more never before produced characters from concept art and the cartoon! The possibilities are endless!
Unfortunately no, they needed to be added on to any existing pledge for another figure. The good news is they can be added to any figure, no minimum pledge level, as long as there is another figure that is being shipped, the Lightstar Crystal figures can be added to ship with it!
