The Great Pumpkin Delivers

Things are starting to wind down for this year's Great Pumpkin Gift Exchange. I'm still waiting on a few people to confirm they got their stuff but so far it seems like it was a success! A success not without its headaches and learning opportunities, but a success.

Here's what some of the participants got from their Great Pumpkins.
If I missed you, let me know and I'll link you up.

As for me, I got an unexpected bonus gift! This was courtesy of ConnQuest.

He makes all kinds of magnets, which are what those tiny movie posters and letters are. He sent lots of letters, like a 2" high stack! He also included a couple of patches that make me wish I had a denim jacket with the sleeves torn off so I could put them on the back of it.

Especially excited about The Crimson Ghost one. Most people associate his visage with The Misfits (and rightly so!) without knowing where it originated. It's a great old timey serial picture. Best of all is the SLUG Zombies Series 3 12-pack which I'd been wanting to get for awhile. They'll be getting their own post next week.

My "official" Great Pumpkin gift came from Tommy Day at Tophat Sasquatch.

Even the box it was shipped in had Peanuts Halloween stickers on it. My wish list included LEGO minifigs and I got three: a pirate, a Hamlet-esque actor with skull and a cowgirl with lasso. Also included was a ziplock of LEGO-like candy bricks that you can actually snap together to build something, four packs of 80s trading cards (Return of the Jedi, Jaws 2 and TMNT x2) and a Tophat Sasquatch t-shirt.

Huge thanks to ConnQuest and Tommy for putting together such cool packages!
