About Me Midrange Shopper
I shop around to find the best price and best shipping. This was it at the time. Great buy and seems very durable (for now at least, Oct 2011 is the first season). I love that he's poseable because it makes for more ways to use him. Really happy with our purchase.
Skeletons are super cool
from Seattle, WA
We ordered two of these skeletons for a yard display, and we're very pleased with the quality and looks. As soon as we saw them, we had tons of ideas: skeletons doing yard work, skeletons playing badmitton, skeletons sailing a ghost raft, skeleton mail carrier. We set them up in the yard using 3 ft lengths of rebar pounded into the ground half way, then attached to the skeleton's legs with black zip ties; works well and isn't too visible. Thanks, Spirit!

I hsve a couple of spots I can use this skeleton. The fact that it can almost stand on it's own & it's poseable is a plus.

This is a great skeleton - I've had mine for several years and it has held up well. Not a pretty face, but a great prop that you can pose and dress in a variety of ways - very fun for parties - I've done some crazy things with it over the years (wigs, clothing, etc.) People often don't recognize that it is the same skeleton, depending on how I dress it and where I place it in my displays.

Used mine literally to death!
from St. Louis
I am having to replace 2 of my guys... but I wore them out. My house has a front, 2nd story balcony that is the hit of the neighborhood on Halloween. Unfortunately, it gets full sun all day and all the elements. My guys just wore out from sun exposure over 6 years. Normal use would not be a problem. They are truly fully posable. I've had mine climbing ladders, holding a rope to hang the other... one was a flying acrobat one year. Even the fingers can grasp small handles (of swords, for example i.e. Pirates one year!) I highly recommend this item. You will dress them up (even as Santa if you are a freak like me) and everything inbetween.
Awesome, it is a fav!

It was even better than I expected! He is one of my favorite additions.
A whole lot of fun

About Me Midrange shopper
I bought my skeleton in maryland a couple of years age. I put a flaming red and black wig on her and she became my passenger on my Harley on and off over the couple of years. You can well imagine the looks from passers by. People get a big kick out of her, and love to take pictures. I just bought a new one as she has dryed out and cracked up.Just had way to much fun not tobuy another replace her. Thanks

About Me Budget Oriented, Quality Oriented
I have 4 of these guys (so far!) and love that they are truly posable. All other "posable" skeletons I've found are small, hinged, and fragile. The wire structure is the best solution I've found so far. The wire frame is sturdy enough to maintain a position and is realistic enough create pretty startling scenes. (except for turning the head, which is difficult and which I do not recommend doing) He may not hold his balance in most positions, but with the help of a third point of support (wall, tree, chimney (great idea other reviewer!), another skeleton etc) these can be set up in any number of scenes.I agree with the other review that the welds can snap and I have two with posture issues that happened early on, despite adult-only handling and reasonable care being taken. I recommend you get to know your skeleton's "skeleton" and take care to bend the wires, not at the weld points. Avoid turning the head too much, be cautious how you bend at the hips, store in a pressure-free position. I prize these so highly that I do not put them into storage the rest of the year. They stay in my bedroom (yeah, I sleep alone, what are you implying?) The individual fingers (while tempting for pranksters) are a nice touch, although the length of the wires in the fingers varies with each individual, meaning not every skeleton can grasp things firmly. (rubber finger tips may be flaccid) The heels are a bit unfinished, with a tube of rubber sticking back a couple of inches, but in all cases I was able to roll the rubber inside itself to create a satisfactory appearance.They are a bit awkward to move around once posed in anything but an autopsy posture... their hands wander and grope, and grab doorways and other people, but this is all part of the fun and really a positive, since that means they really hold their position!Take care to keep the wires in the long bones (ulna, femur etc) straight, as bending these kills the authenticity of your scene (well, unless I suppose you are going for a classic skateboarder accident. ew)Sitting one in a chair in the office made the entire month of October a party as every day I would come in to find another accessory or pose.Combine these with the 30" posable hard plastic skeletons for a family scene. If dressing them, the adults wear small to medium and the kids are about a 4 or 4T.

LifeSized Skeleton - adds to any decor
from Batavia, NY
Used as Halloween Props in the yard. Lifesized Skeletons are great for dress up (i.e. as pirates) or on their own. Last year we had them set up as they were climbing the chimney of the house. The posable aspect of these are great, except a joint (weld point) broke very easily the first time we attempted to bend. Other than that, a great prop for any Halloween Haunt.
