  1. Nightmare Before Christmas 2019

    General Halloween
    Since there seems to be new merch ever year, I figured we'd get this one started for 2019. Any new Nightmare stuff people have spotted yet? It looks like Home Depot will be getting the Jack and Sally animatronics from Spirit (no word yet on whether they will be an improvement). There will...
  2. Static: NBC yard

    Off-Topic Stuff
