Review 1: Coo Model 1/6 scale Skeleton Soldier 12-inch figure from "Jason & the Argonauts" ?

This is the recently released Coo Model 1/6 scale Simulated Human Skeleton Soldier 12-inch figure that comes with 1/6 scale Human skull head and 12-inch human skeleton body, Skeletal Hand x 6, Shield and Sword. Additional accessories include: Attachments / connectors of hand, foot connectors which support HT interface. This 1/6 scale skeleton figure looks a lot better than the 1/6 scale Cowboy Skull Brother Boss skeleton figure (previewed HERE) that Coo Model is trying to get collectors interested.


In one of the scenes from the classic 1963 Columbia Pictures fantasy feature film "Jason and the Argonauts", King Aeëtes sows the Hydra's teeth after praying to the goddess Hecate, producing a skeletal warrior from each. Jason and two of his men have to fight off the skeleton soldiers. This was before CGI and all the visual effects were created by Ray Harryhausen who created a form of stop-motion model animation known as "Dynamation." His most memorable works include the animation on Mighty Joe Young (1949), with his mentor Willis H. O'Brien, which won the Academy Award for special effects; The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958), his first color film; and Jason and the Argonauts (1963), featuring a famous sword fight against seven skeleton warriors. His last film was Clash of the Titans (1981), after which he retired.
