    Wow! We're always excited to see what Lemax puts out, so thanks so much for the heads up mariab1299!

    Lots of stuff. Don't know why but a lot of the colors in the early photos always seem crazy bright. I really wish some of it was a little more based on reality though. (e.g. I'd love a couple more creepy houses without tombstones or gargoyles all over them.)

    Not sure if we'll pick up more Spooky Town this year or keep on with the Dept 56. Some nice witch stuff though.

    Really like the Clock Tower, Last House on the Left, the pumpkin tree and stacks, scariest Halloween house, and the jack o lamp posts.

    This is the most Ive liked in the past few years. Those Michaels coupons will be quit handy this year.

    Just think gargoyles should be held in high-esteem and used in places of importance, rather than just to fill up space. (I do like the Gargoyle Sculpture Studio though - maybe the villagers are just into supporting their local artisans? And the Wine Cellar is cool. And the castle - we need a new castle.)

    Yeah, after another look, it might be their best year in a while.

    I know what you mean; the last two or three years have been pretty pathetic, or at least I feel so.

    Wonderful job of redeeming yourself, GobbyGruesome Really, just having fun teasing you Gargoyles, like anything else, can be overused.

    I certainly agree that there should be more castles. One of my favorite pieces was the 'Gothic Ruins' set a few years ago, but I missed out on it, so I would love to see something similar offered.

    Ah. We've got the gothic ruins. It really is a great piece. I remember thinking when that one was released, that they had really stepped things up a lot. I think the Spooky Town Barn came out that year and it was really nice too. Subtle with some great lighting.

    I stopped buying Spooky Town not long after Gothic Ruins came out. I think 2005 was the last. I dont like the garish colors or the newer soundtracks.
    What I love are the really old items like Dr Tingle's Lab and Spookiest House on the Block. Dr Tingle's actually sounds very, very creepy.

    I was lucky enough some years ago to run into a woman on craigslist selling her entire collection, I mean she had the older stuff from 2001 and 2002 ect. She even had the hard-to-find Front Yard pieces and lots of small accessories. She sold all to me for $200.00 That included some Lemax Christmas too

    So it's all in my cellar along with the tons of other halloween stuff. I havent put up the Spooky Town in several years because there is just too much to do at Halloween with all the other inside/outside decor. Also I have a kitty who may decide to play Godzilla on the display table. My other cats were older boys, they didnt even notice the display.
