They have a basic 2d sprite character creator program.It also depends on what type of sprites you want to create like 3d rendered sprites or just basic 2d rendered cartoon type sprites.

Draven, might want to check your links. That ones been gone several months.

The kit is basically a collection of pixel art sprites you can arrange and create a sprite sheet.
But its not available anymore.
There is Charas, a web based system that's similar.

As far as bones go, there's Anime Studio. Its got just about everything your looking for.
It's available as a demo, and a pay version.

There's also Synfig. It doesn't have bones, but it does have some very nice tweening.
I understand a bones system is in the works tho....
It's also open source, so it's free.
