    I saw it in Home Depot. You have to crane your neck up to see it. It has bloodshot LCD eyes that move around. I showed my wife and she went nuts for it, so I ordered it in secret and picked up the last one in stock this morning. She was thrilled.

    It's still in the box, but when I get it up, I update this thread with some pics. This is what the sucker looks like:

        You've been rather insufferable this year, even more than usual.

        It has amazing shock value. Go down to Home Depot, they'll have one out.

            Front door at the office for any late coming employees, and for vendors arriving for negotiations.


            Ox, I was gonna make some crack about your OP, but it is damn cool. I'll take the kids down this weekend to HD and check it out.

            Just keep in mind the damn thing is 300 bucks. However, I expect it to be a Halloween mainstay for many years to come - quality is pretty decent. Also, if you want one, better make sure there are any in stock around you - this was the last one at my local store.

            To get it into my attic I'm going to have to carry up a few pieces at a time. :lol:

            Could I keep my trench coat in your closet for a few months?

              I got one too, along with my 8' smoking pumpkin man, 6' pin head, etc... he will look great in the years to come, because we are decorating this year. But he is a fanastic looking decor.

                Does it have more or less pieces than a Florida Field lego set?

                  Not the best overall episode to me, but that trench coat part is one of my favorite Seinfeld scenes.

                  I don’t even know why it cracks me up.:lol:
