Haunted Mansion Lantern

I'm not sure if I'm going to have a Halloween countdown this year or not. Either way I couldn't wait to show this bad boy off.

I first saw this on the Disney Store's website last year and never got around to ordering it.  When I saw it return this year, I knew I wasn't going to waste any time getting one to add to my Halloween decor. A nice discount sealed the deal.

At first glance, this looks like a generic run of the mill piece of Disney Halloween merch.  Mickey and the gang in costumes for Halloween. Cute, I guess.

(I apologize for the picture quality, took these on the fly this morning)


As you rotate this guy it becomes awesome.  These pics don't do it justice, really spooky Haunted Mansion graphics cover 2/3 of this this beaut.


Now that I've seen it all lit up, I may keep an eye out for a good deal to grab a second.


This thing just drips eerie Haunted Mansion spookiness.

Bring on fall!

Marvel Zerboz Micro Racers

I told myself awhile back that I'd be cutting down on smaller, blind packed toys.  Yet somehow, one or two of these guys find their way into my cart each time I venture into Wal-Mart.  At only 99 cents a pop, it's hard not to grab one or two.


These have a little of a nostalgic Micro Machines feel to them.  I like the size and detail.



I'm not going to go nuts collecting these, but it's fun to see how they interpret the characters into auto form.

Auto Avengers 

For the kiddies, the grey lids are road, ramp and launcher pieces.


Not a bad deal for less than a buck.  Anyone else picking these up?
