It is a cool idea to have a skull/skeleton focus. You have got to get the Ghostbusters Bad to the Bone figure in there. In my collection , I can think of the skeletons from Army of Darkness and the obvious Skeletor and Ghostrider. I don't have them all on display though.
Oh man, I've always loved picking up random skull or skeleton related things and I've done so forever!
I have them randomly strewn in with my decor. I've contemplated gathering them all and putting them in a pile on the floor (or bed) to see how many I have! But I'm too lazy. I have alot more than has been photo'd. Skulls and skeletons just make me so cheerful for some reason.
Most of the photos show the decor type, but I have a few more skeleton themed itoys here and there, they're just not on shelves yet (and waaaaay many more on my want list).
Here's a couple that actually made it into photos of the place: There's a grim reaper, and a silver strobe skull in that brightly 'cheerful' colored bunch:
I actually have this hanging up on the side of my wall all the time:
Skull ceramic mug and salt and pepper shaker! (oh, and there's Spooky, the Thing What Squeeks hiding below that)
There's a skeleton sand timer back ther. And I have no idea what that old small ceramic head next to the witch goes to or does. Maybe a doll head??
I love that ceramic shelf sitting skeleton votive! Have yet to light him up inside though.
Here's a neat tier cake art box (although usually without the christmas hat):
This vintage rubber toy is a new addition to the place:
Here's a neat creepy red skull marionette some lady made on ebay almost 10 years ago that's been hanging out in my corner ever since:
I have this in a box at the moment, but it's a skull with light up eyes (that have stopped working!), and I sawed the top off, drilled holes and hinged it, and drilled holes to attach a strap. Now I have a working skull purse!!! (used only on Halloween though, sadly) (but boy was it a hit).

Skeletons are definitely cool. I love going to the museum of natural history. My brother had a weasel skull when I was a kid. Looked pretty cool with its fangs and all. I like my skeletons fun and cartoony though, so I just stick to figures.
