    Just a quick FYI for those looking to do a Halloween display or party. Costco currently have 1.5m posable skeletons for $60 each. Cheapest I could find online of similar size was $100+postage so a bit of a bargain.
    They also had a few other animated props too like a grim reaper, gargoyle & spider skeleton.

    Price seems pretty good. Unfortunately the only Costco around here is miles away and I don't have a member card anyway.

    I joined last night on a gamble that they would be cheap! I think I want to add a pixel node each for the eyes :)

    I don't believe so. You can't shop online, you have to be a member to get inside to browse and shop.

    The 60" (5') skeletons are $39.99 USD here. Can order from their website without a membership but adds $2 non-member fee. Shipping appears to be free.

    They also have two dogs and a spider thats almost 4'

    Given that the cheapest membership is $55, that gives me 25 purchases before a membership is worth it. The closest store is 11mi away so I can't see me shopping there very often.

    When I put the posable skeleton, the dog and the spider in my cart, the non-member fee is still only $5.75. The non-member fee appears to be 5% of the cart total. If thats the case, I would have to purchase $1,100 worth of stuff to break even on the $55 membership.
