I wish they would have their original plastic hanging skeletons back again for $19.99. Last year, in our area, they only had the posable one that was closer to $50. I have one of the originals, but I was hoping for 2. Maybe they'll be back this time.

I wasn't able to get the Jack last year, but an aquaintance did sell one to me. Which was very nice of them.
I too hope they carry him again this year. :)

I just made a big pumpkin for Jack to sit on in a little whimsical cemetery scene I hope to do this year.

I hope they have Jack too... I missed out and only get across the border so often. If anyone has an extra they are willing to sell I would be very interested as I have a mail box in Niagara Falls NY that it can be sent to.

It would be nice if they had some good Nightmare Before Christmas stuff this year, but I was under the impression that last year's haul was due to the anniversary of the movie's release.

I didn't get a full sized Jack, either. A friend of mine offered to pick one up for me, but I just didn't have the extra cash at the time, so I told her thanks, but I couldn't. :/

Were their "original" skeletons the Blucky type, or like the $50 but not poseable? I have a Blucky type from Osco Drugs 1995 or so, who was sold under the name "Mr. Bones".

Thank you! Well, I can tell you how I made the pumpkin BUT I used some wrong product on it, and now I'm having problems with it cracking. So I would not recommend what I did to anyone. I used Great Stuff spray foam insulation over a blowmold pumpkin. However, I got hung up half way through and did the wrong thing to finish it off. I want to make a new one next year and try a different way to build it. This photo was taken the day I had just painted it before the cracking appeared. It's all hairline cracks so I am fairly sure at night, in a dark cemetery, it will look fine for this Halloween (I hope)... but either this one needs a makeover, or I'll start again. LOL
You live and you learn. Right?!?!?! :)

I"m starting to think my local Walgreens suck. I have one right up the road from me and we have no good garden stuff (as was mentioned in another thread) and if I'd seen that Jack I would have snatched him up. I'm in there enough to know. I guess I'll have to scout out a bunch of walgreens now. Poop.

I don't know about checking them this early....they were slow last year getting it all out, after labor day and all the school items were thinned out...they put out some in a trickle here, then it came out about a week after labor day....drove me nuts.......we have two new ones right by us now, i'll keep a close eye on them running to the grocery store...hehe

(I already posted this in the DT thread, but I think it deserves a second mention here.)

I have a bit of a rubber bat addiction. I cannot walk pass a display of bats without grabbing a pair. I need help.

Anyhoo... The pair in the back of this photo are Dollar Tree bats. The pair on the left were from Walgreens last year and were $1.49. I have no idea if they will carry them, how much they would be this year, or how many they would even stock... but the Walgreens bats rock because they are so realistic that they compare to the $8 bats from Michaels toy section (pair on right).

I just wanted to share this here, in case they carry them again. I think they are great for how inexpensive they are.
