31 Days of Toy Terror Returns: Jack-O-Lantern from Classic Favorites Bobble Heads: Holiday Friends by Entertainment Earth
I love to find more unusual things to review as part of 31 Days of Toy Terror! Today I'm looking at a really cool bobble head figure that I picked up on sale from Entertainment Earth in late August. I've never heard of these before but they're called Classic Favorites Bobble Heads. The Jack-O-Lantern is from a subset called Holiday Friends which includes a number of traditional holiday characters such as a vampire, a witch, cupid, Santa Claus, and a sexy Ms. Claus. I only bought the horror themed ones on sale (which I got for about $2 each!) and I've been placing them around the house as the make excellent Halloween decorations. I love scarecrows and pumpkin headed characters so I just knew I'd pick this guy up. Ready for a quick look? Then join me after the break...
Height: 7 inches
Articulation: Bobbling head
Non-Scalper Price: $13 dollars (but keep an eye out for sales..I paid $2!)
*This is an amazing pumpkin head sculpt! It's so handsome and manly! Seriously, I bet lots of people just love this guy. Hey...wait a minute! He looks just like me! Seriously, check out the side of your screen! Yup, this is basically a small statue paying tribute to the awesomeness of myself, Barbecue17! I love it! I'm equal parts fun and terrifying!
* These aren't quite the clothes I wear on normal occasions but I like them. It's interesting that Entertainment Earth chose to show me with straw coming out of my arms and legs: I only use that tactic when I'm trying to startle someone. I totally wear plaid button up shirts all the time but I'm not big on overalls. Not sure I ever owned a pair. Maybe I need to pick some up?
* I love the spiderweb base with the words "Spooktacular" on it. I am spooktacular! I'm always spooktacular! If you buy one of these and sit it around your house, you'll definitely have a better Halloween season. Every time you're going to do something you'll think "How could I make this spookier?"
*While I'm perfectly capable of standing up on my own I do like to rest against wooden poles. It's a nice detail!
