A bunch of new animatronics have been found on Lowe’s website. After years of only having Gemmy items, Lowe’s will be selling exclusive Seasonal Visions (and from what I’ve heard Tekky too) items in store. Please note nothing is available yet for purchase and probably won’t be until the summer.

As soon as I saw they were outdoor rated, I'm already making plans to get 2 of the Cemetery Angels. That'll save me a ton of time not having to make the stuff I had planned for my porch. As much as I love messing with XPS foam and wood, it gets super messy, and everyone at my work is starting to go back in full-time, so all of my free time is about to vanish :(.

Update, I didn't realize the "items you recently viewed" history that accumulates at the bottom of the site shows the prices of some of these items!

Nearly $500 for 2 is a bit too rich for my blood. But at 8 friggin' feet tall, I think one will do just fine!

All things considered since those are initial listings, I wonder if "pneumatic" actually means "pneumatic", or if it really means some sort of spring driven "Mr Dark" contraption.

It would be a big step forward but I wonder how they are going to handle the compressor. Will something cheap be included or are they going to basically say "Here's a wicked cool $200+ prop, now head over to another department and grab an air compressor that's going to add another $100+ to the overall investment so it will actually do something other than sit there. Hope you know something about pneumatics. Good luck."

I just don't see that working as a marketing approach.

Judging by the $361 price tag they have, I believe they may come with a smaller budget friendly compressor of some sort.

All the animatronics shown so far are made by Seasonal Visions who has been known to include fog machines with select animatronics they’ve made over the years.

Actually, I'm surprised they haven't done this in the past. They're a hardware store and sell most of the stuff you'd need to do a pneumatic prop. So consider it like when you buy a BBQ, suggested selling: propane tank, utensils..etc. from a sales perspective, more opportunities for upselling.

With that being said, even though I've sworn off buying cheap props, I'm very curious about the archway. It seems easy enough to store and I can retire the way too big columns I already have.

Im like you I see no way a box store is doing a true pneumatic prop.
