    Hi All.

    Thought i'd host a thread for people to share any links or pics of Halloween props as they appear in stores. I'll kick off with this years offerings from Costco.

    This Butler is 84" (2.1m) tall and $179.99. He has light & sound. I believe he moves but it didn't when I walked past.

    The Tombstone is 64" (1.6m) tall & $119.99. Lights & Sound.
    The Spider is 7.5' (2.2m) wide and $59.99. Only has light up red eyes, I think battery operated.
    Grim Reaper looks to be same as last year, $174.99 and has lights, sound and movement. Looks about 1.8m tall
    The pose-able skelli are 5ft or 1.5m tall & $54.99. Hard to find them this size at that price (i bought 2 last year, could get more this year!)

    The wreath 24" (60cm) is a different design to last year's and is $34.99
    The Giant Skull & Raven looks to be about 20" (50cm) tall and is $44.99. The packaging does look like it has any light or sound included.

    Wow, I got one of those skeletons the other day for $20 from a wholesaler selling off sample / display stock.

    It has a minor issue, but I'm still happy with the price. :)

    Thanks for heads up on the Costco items. I made the trip to Sydney today and graded a boot load of goodies.
    Todays purses where the grim reaper, giant skull with crow, the wreath and also the tomb stone.
    Very happy with the quality (as usual) i will post pics of them tomorrow when i get a chance.
    Those looking for a little more professional effects and controllers i use Frightprops in the USA they now do DHL shipping so quite cost effective.
    I have made 6 orders with them this year alone and always show up quickly and well packaged.

    Stopped into Spotlight today to see what they had on offer. more out on display than what Lombards currently has, although I'm told Lombards stock is currently filtering in and will make its way out over coming week or so (Footy Finals taking prime place atm.)

    Pumpkin pinatas, packs of small pumpkins/skulls/spiders/bugs, foam tombstones

    Various foam skulls & masks

    Battery operated string lights, plastic severed feet/hands, 5" skulls and large black spiders

    bag of mini skulls, tray of eyes, light up goblets, brains plates/moulds

    Had a few other things such as dress-up & masks section, and a cage full of sickles/pitchforks etc, and some plastic cauldrons.
