I've admired your prop as well Bourno. It really looks fantastic! I'd love to see a video as well if you are able to share it sometime. The new photos really show the detail of the construction. Thanks for sharing!

Reading the explanation of how it works, I'm reminded of that Far Side cartoon....

Thanks for the kind words. I have torn it apart to do some clean up and then get it painted, and I didn't take any video of it in action earlier. Unfortunately, I have a work trip coming up and won't get back from that for at least a week or two.

Torgen, yeah, I wanted to put in a little information on where the cylinder was applying force. It is hard to explain in words. Guess I may need to make a drawing that shows this in the future.

Darryl, that is a foam skeleton that seems to be only carried by Menards hardware stores and they are only in the north central US.

I REALLY want one of those this year so anyone willing to get one for me and ship it to me let me know or maybe "group by" ? Yes I know its expensive to ship but cheaper than driving up there!

I have to agree, that is one kick-ass little skelly. How much does he run, normally, and does Menard's have a website? :D

The skeleton was $35 or $37 last year. It is nicely made and stands pretty close to 6' flat footed.

Menards has a website but is pretty lame. They have a store locator and weekly ad thing. They don't have any on-line ordering which I assume you were hoping for.

You will definitely be scaring someone with this bad a** toy. Still jealous, maybe next year.

That is way cool I hope you are able to get some video of that in action on Halloween I can't wait to see them jump back on that one ! Glad to see you have it completed. Now I wish it would cool off some here so I can get back to finishing up mine. 95+ for over 3 weeks straight!

dannng, that is sweet!

My wife would kick my ass if I went out to buy a welder just to make Halloween props, though!
