Modded Skylanders toys are even MORE awesome

I haven't gotten around to playing Skylanders yet, but I dig the concept. You collect little figurines then zap them into the game? Brilliant! And when you aren't playing the game, you can play around with the figures by themselves? Wonderful! It's a shame the toys aren't poseable, though...

DAH DAH DAH DAAAAAAAH! Here comes the enterprising toy modder to the rescue!

Jin Saotome, whose mods we've showcased in the past, has snatched up a few Skylanders figures and set about adding points of articulation to them. The results are marvelous, making you wonder why Toys For Bob didn't do this in the first place. As with his other mods, he'll be putting some of his creations up on eBay -- Chop Chop is already on the auction block.

So Jim, how much money would you spend on fully articulated Skylanders toys?
