I bought him this weekend at a garage sale for 50.00 !! Box included!!
He just needs a power supply, Does anyone know where I can order one?
Does Gemmy sell them? if they do I"ll call Customer Support in the morning.

Thanks in advance to anyone that replies!

Oh your lucky :) I recommend getting an adaptor at Radio Shack. I had a chance to get one this weekend too but I passed, I told my mom about it and she wanted him so we went back to buy him, $75 in hand and the woman said her husband freaked at how cheap she was going to sell it and wont go for less than $150, /rollseyes. If you are selling stuff at a yardsale you would think sorting out the pricing for your big props would be priority. They were wishy washy on their stuff all day, as I had to go back a few times to pick up missing pieces. You didnt buy your Freddy in FL did you? lol.

No, I live in Washington ( Seattle Area ) I found the post on Craigs List...
Here's what I walked away with....

Gemmy 6 ft Freddy Krueger, Gravely the Ghastley Butler, and a 6ft Zombie Prop ( static )
and other misc props, and masks for a grand total of $ 150.00

Freddy's going for 350.00 on ebay,The Butler retails for 300.00 online at random sites online,
and the zombie had a price on the box of 140.00.

Oooo great score on the butler :) My moms been wanting him for awhile. We looked up my mother and I's purchases from saturday and looked up Freddy as well, its not showing on ebay anymore but recently 2 freddys sold for $500 plus the most recent one thats up to $350. My mom was so heartsick she coulda had him at $75 if she had made up her mind sooner than later (when the husband caught on). She still owes me money for her purchases, so there was no way she could afford $150 they changed the price to later. :(
What does your static zombie look like?

pretty cool looking.

Left4Dead - first, great score, your Halloween decorating just got a heck of alot more interesting!
Second, next to the spot where the adapter plugs in there will be a little diagram showing the voltage and polarity of the plug. Use this as a guide when you go to Radio Shack (or wherever ) to buy an adapter. If not the specific voltage, you should be able to find a variable adapter with a reversing plug. BE SURE you have the polarity correct.

Does Freddy run on AC or DC?
Do you know how many milliamps it needs?
If Radio shack doesn't have it, might find one online.
