HALLOWEEN COUNTDOWN: SKELETON #4


Era: 1960s
Glow-in-the-Dark?: No
Place of Origin: Toy show
Rib Count: 14
Celebrity Look-alike: Steve Buscemi
Description: Yeah, yeah laugh it up. You see dust on him, right? Well, show me a collector with a dust-free collection and I'll show you a crappy collection. (Unless of course it's a very rich collector with enough glassed-in displays to enclose his entire collection. In that case, the collection would probably be pretty great. Unless the rich collector collects Beanie Babies.)
Anyway, a skeleton with a pet bat is completely awesome.
Additional Info: Part of the MPC monster series
Cause of Death: Bat rabies
Rating: 8.2

I can so see Buscemi in him. Also, dust and skeletons go together like weird red jelly and Spam, so it's all good.

glow in the dark is great, but the glow in the dark snap togethers are made of flimsy plastic. today, in a junk shop, i discovered that they're also made in purple and blue swirled sturdy plastic. i paid the dollar and now he hovers beside me

i just counted nine skulls around my desk. being an ex vagabond, i've lost many over the years. this collection is only a couple of years old. i've also picked up 2 skull masks. death reminds me to live

This skeleton and skeleton #9 both have holes in their bases. #4 seems blissfully ignorant of this fact, but I think #9 has just dropped his car keys down his base hole.

That's a great skeleton. I suspect that the dust is evidence that this fellow was, a short time ago, a walking mummy, or a vampire who stepped out in the sunlight; the bat a sympathetic familiar desperately racing to warn his friend before it's too late, alas, his wings were not quick enough, and tragedy triumphs.
