Lots of praise is given to Ray Harryhausen's skeleton warriors seen in both THE SEVENTH VOYAGE OF SINBAD and JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS as the best of his creations. I would agree that these scenes were probably his greatest achievement in the art of stop-motion animation, but I have a certain fondness for the Ymir in the film 20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH.

Now available for pre-order is a fantastically detailed, limited edition Ymir figure sculpted in soft vinyl. It can be ordered through numerous retailers, including the always monsterlicious MONSTERS IN MOTION.

Product details:
