Home Depot has some of their Christmas items on 50% off sale right now online. I saw this ShowHome App RGBW LED Ball on sale and thought, cool! I guess this was suppose to look like snowballs maybe but Watch the video and let your mind go to halloween themes...Pulsating Alien space ball, dinosaur glowing egg, swamp gas toxic bubble...

https://www.homedepot.com/p/ShowHome-App-RGBW-LED-Ball-W10I0028/305026669



7 light-show modes, timer settings, customize 28 show color patterns, outdoor rated. Built in 6 hr. battery or power supply. Blue tooth app controlled. Manual and instructions on HD site. Almost 10 inches in diameter (with flat bottom).

One of the user comments said that you can control multiple lights at the same time with the app on your phone or ipad. Since they are bluetooth compatible no need to string them together. Since they are waterproof and have a internal battery to power, another user said they can be floated. Having a good bluetooth connection will be an important factor to getting it/them set up.

Some of the Gemmy Lightshow projection fixtures are also marked down 50% right now (to 9.99). The basic Home Accents Holiday solid color LED spot lights 50% off (7.49 now) -- in white, green, blue, red. Revolving Tree Stand also marked down. 9-pc resin battery operated LED candle set (5 pillar and 4 tea lights) indoor/outdoor with timer, half off.

Some of these items might make it down to 75% off but always hard to project. If you missed out on spot or projection lighting for halloween however, these are pretty good prices that won't come around until after halloween this year.

Also if you missed out on the WindowFX Plus projector after halloween sale to add some projections to your windows or house haunt, it's also on sale right now 50% off (down to 44.99) and in stock and $0.01 shy of shipping to home for free ($45 min. order) but right now can ship to local store for free. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Plus-Projector-Kit-28088/304865437

A day or two ago I saw that Home Depot still had some halloween props and christmas lighting at 50% off. For Halloween, that had surprisingly included the Gigantic Spider, think it was down to something like $124.99 and was in stock to order. I bought mine off ebay for about that after halloween and after I had missed out on the 50% and it sold out at that time, so wasn’t in need of another (or could store another!) but was thinking maybe I would order a few more of the Show Home globes if they went down to 75% off. Meant to come here to post after seeing the Spider but got busy and forgot. Checked things today and sadly Everything is Back to Full Price. Don’t know if anything did get reduced to 75% or if 50% was the lowest they took things to this year. With it being February now, I’m thinking that’s it for sale priced holiday decorations. Sale probably ended 1/31.

Does anyone think the skeleton horse is likely to be stocked again? I missed out on the last ones sold on ebay (not happy with myself) and am really hoping they stock them again for next year. IIRC, they had them on sale through the off season last year? Unfortunately homedepot doesn't deliver to Australia, but when they're in stock ebay retailers buy them and sell them with delivery.

P.S. The ones in the stock photos are the prototypes so you can expect them to look more like the ones that were at the expo (ex Pennywise will have his pom poms, metal base, etc)

I have one still in box, I was going to make a skeleton Centaur but I'm not sure I'll have time now. I'd be willing to ship, but the cost is likely to be very expensive. I have a friend Australia and his last package for a small box was about 40.00.

This Pennywise is actually more accurate to the movie and has a very detailed face sculpt and phrases directly from the movie voice. The one sold at Party City is made by Morbid Enterprises, who puts less than subpar effort into their licenced props with bizarre inaccurate sculpts and crappy voice acting.

Gemmy is making this Pennywise along with Beetlejuice, Jack and Sally. The released version of Pennywise will look a bit better than the prototype shown I’m sure.

Supposedly someone got a pennywise and left a review but seems phoney,I got on the wait list.The morbid version got old real quick with the music before and after every badly voiced phrase .Got rid of it.

I think I'm going to pre order the Pennywise mask from trick or treat studios and just build my own prop, I bought the costume from a cosplay costume designer on ebay for $140 in 2017 so might as well put it to use

Thx so much for that kind offer! Unfortunately I do think the shipping cost would likely be at least $200. I was over in Vegas visiting last year and sent home a box of smaller stuff that cost me about $200. I was lucky last year in that I found an ebay seller buying homedepot stuff who used their global international shipping thing and got the cauldron witches and howling werewolf and shipping costs were only about $30 for each of them.....they took weeks to get here but that was fine. He had the skeleton horse on sale the day after halloween (as did others on ebay) and I should have bought one then (could have bought it with shipping for about $100usd then but didn't act fast enough and missed out. If they go on sale again in the off season I might message him and tell him I'd buy one if he had one.

Benjamin, I have shipped items via the Global Shipping program on ebay, I'm not sure how they would handle this. Usually the buyer just pays shipping withing the U.S. it goes to the shipping center then ebay takes it from there. The horse is in quite a big box, larger than the howling werewolf which I just unpacked yesterday. Has anyone else shipped one by USPS (might be too big for them ) or UPS? I'm an ebay seller in good standing since 2002 or thereabouts. I could list it on ebay for you I'll just get kicked with all those fees but it happens. If your interested just let me know.

I hope this version of Jack says other things but my guess is it won't. I also hope they fixed Sally's eye blinking noise.
If it's the version Haunt Former showed at the Halloween expo then they possibly fixed it, but you will never know until you see it in person.

(Skip to around 21:00)

I got the gigantic spider when it was half off from Home Depot and I love it. It is really big and I think it's going to make a great addition to the haunt this October. I also got the large wearwolf last year . It was a floor display and it stopped working once I got it home it was a risk I was willing to take. The kids still loved it because it was so big. Going to try to get it working over the summer.
