Dinosaur Skulls Toob

My wife and I were in Michaels the other day, picking up some paint and assorted supplies, when we stumbled across this.

I'm not entirely knew to the "Toob" phenomenon - actually, I reviewed a set years ago in The Clearance Bin - but this is by far the coolest.

The set includes nineteen skulls in all, and there's some nice detail here. The paint, while nothing complicated, is effective, conveying the fossilized motif nicely.

These are about the size of a 6 - 7 inch figure's head. The entire set was priced at $6.99, not a bad deal in itself. We had a 50% coupon off one item, so we sort of paid $3.50 (I say "sort of," because it meant we couldn't use the coupon on something else that started at $5, so we really paid... oh, never mind).

To be honest, I have no idea what I'm going to do with these. Some might end up as set dressing littered around a He-Man diorama; some might even turn into custom heads. At any rate, I'm glad I picked them up, especially at that price.
