31 Days of Toy Terror Returns: Skeleton War from Hunson
Today I'm looking at a really cool set of minifigures from the Hunson toy company: Skeleton War! I picked these up from Amazon earlier this year to add to my ever-growing collection of minifigures. These guys are sold in a simple plastic bag with the cardboard topper that you see in the photo above. If you're a fan of Ray Harryhausen, Army of Darkness, Skeleton Warriors, the book of Ezekiel, or any other story involving armies of skeletons than check these guys out. As always, when reviewing bags of minifigures, I like to imagine that these guys are the enemies from a 1980s NES game called Skeleton War and that I'm writing the enemy descriptions in the instruction manual. It's bizarre but I'm having fun, so whatever. I imagine Skeleton War would be a sidescrolling fantasy themed beat 'em up, kind of like Golden Axe, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Arcade Game, or Bad Dudes. More bony details after the break...
