I agree with Garthgoyle. This is definitely at the top of my list for their props this year, but I was really hoping for a voice less like a little kid's when I first saw it. I like the original Pumpkin Nester's loud, mocking voice better than his. I do wonder how big he actually is, though.
I thought it was pretty cute too till I heard the voice. The echoing little boy voice really ruined it. You've got to wonder who's in charge of the decisions for sound on so many of these props. Why is it the first thing you think about when you see a lot of the newer props is how can I shut them up.
This has got to be one of those props that the designers just didn't know what to do with. That pumpkin head and voice "totally" do not belong together. It's a cool little prop on its own. But if they either changed out the head for something more "creepy" and "childlike," or changed the voice to something deeper, dark and sinister. This prop would be great! As it is...it will be a pass from me. And I'm sure a "pass" for many other haunters.
While we're talking about voices/sounds/background music, has anyone noticed that the props always sound a lot better in the videos than they do in the stores? When you hear it in person it always has that tinny mechanical sound to it.
