Thanks too for posting those links, both to the site with all the pictures and descriptions of the Boney Bunch collection, also to the Yankee Candle videos. Watching them has become an annual tradition!

I hope you don't mind Kitty, but I thought I'd add a few more helpful links, particularly for the new collectors. Here's a link to the Boney Bunch Love site that many of us here follow too...

https://www.facebook.com/BoneyBunchLove

In addition to display ideas, it also includes scans of the Yankee Candle Halloween catalogs.

In the photo area, there are "sticker sheets", one for each year of the collection, that I find useful as a quick reference when designing table top displays using the Boney Bunch...

And here's one more link from the Boney Bunch Love site that provides the names used to describe the characters in the 2009 collection...

It's hard to believe that the collection is now beginning it's 8th year. See you in August when the new collection launches!

I wish they would go back and revisit the pirate theme. If they made a large pirate ship, I would gladly put it next to my other pirate. Also, as much as I love the big boneys, I hope they have some minis (or at least small ones) to mix in with them this year, I'm running out of display room.

I have not heard this either. As far as we know in the stores, we're still planning for Halloween in August....

I asked the workers at my YK yesterday about this. Wife and I were using our coupons to replenish our candle stock. ;) They never heard anything either and also said August is planned as usual.

I prefer not to say but she's been a great source of info for years at YC

Wish I could say different, but just what I heard, been on this board for a few years now, so I wouldn't just say something to say something. Here's hoping it's not true!!

I would be sad to see them go, especially without them warning us that it's the 'farewell' year. This has been rumored before though so let's keep our fingers crossed!
I almost wouldn't be surprised though, considering how mishandled last year was, and the fact that over half of the pieces were still around when we hit the post-Christmas semi-annual sale, and five are still on the site. Prior to last year the only piece that ever made it to clearance was Duffer McBone, and maybe a couple of the re-releases (headless farmer, anyone?) So I'm not sure if they just massively over-produced the pieces last year, or if interest in our beloved Bonies is starting to wane, at least for the casual fans of the collection. :(

i don't think that a a surplus of pieces necessarily indicates them falling out of favor. It may simply mean that the new company over estimated how many would sell.

I cannot imagine that Yankee would discontinue what is surely their biggest selling line year after year. That just does not make good business sense.

Hello again everyone! Last weekend I stopped by one of my local YC stores and talked to one of my trusted salespersons. She said she has already seen some information about this year's Halloween line. She said that the Boney Bunch are back, Ghostly Treats will return as a candle, and there will be a new "cat" line of Halloween figures. They are not like the black cat line that was released a couple years ago. These are different and more like the pieces were before the Boney Bunch. That's all I have for now. Trust me, I'll keep sleuthing.
