HALLOWEEN COUNTDOWN: SKELETON #18


Era: 1990s
Glow-in-the-Dark?: No
Place of Origin: Bag of party favors from Wal-Mart
Rib Count: 20
Celebrity Look-alike: Alley Oop
Description: Allow me to say what everyone is thinking... What is up with those lower ribs? This is the only skeleton I own whose arms are usually trapped inside his own rib cage. The design is baffling. I'm also not a fan of the sternum growing out from the chin. Looks too much like a long braided beard. But this guy has one super power and that is.. he's blacklight sensitive. Now anything that glows-in-the-dark is automatically blacklight sensitive, but this fellow achieves a neon-like radiance that will make anyone's time in the blacklight more special. Also note that he has both a built-in hanging chord (which goes into the skull and is secured by a knot) and a rubber hanging hoop. This is something you only see on luxury models.
Additional Info: MADE IN CHINA
Cause of Death: Radiation Alien Chestburster
Rating: 5.6

Alley Oop? yehhhh... but I also kinda see the face of Mitch Pileggi, "Skinner" from the X-files.

Another possible cause of death: Alien chestburster perhaps?

I'm enjoying your countdown immensely.

gurgon- Ha! That cause of death is great! I've altered the entry accordingly. Thanks.

We have some of these without the weird chin thorax. My sone uses them for radioactive villian, Derek Powers from "Batman Beyond."
