Skeleton Warriors Grimskull Action Figure Launches on Kickstarter
September 7, 2015

October Toys Launches Kickstarter Campaign Skeleton Warriors 1/18th scale fully articulated Glyos compatible Grimskull action figure!

We are super excited to bring you the next bad to the bone Skeleton Warrior action figure – Grimskull!

After successfully launching the first figure in our line of highly detailed collectible Skeleton Warriors action figures, Baron Dark, we are back with the first human sized addition to the line – Grimskull! After a struggle with Baron Dark over the Lightstar Crystal, Joshua Steele was transformed into the undead Grimskull, living his life between light and dark and searching for redemption as he travels in the shadows.

As toy collectors ourselves, we have updated and redesigned this figure with collectors in mind, drawing inspiration from the 90’s cartoon character 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!

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
