Meet The Newest Member of My Family...

I ordered Sideshow Collectibles' 15" Sam (Trick 'r Treat) Vinyl Figure from the site way back in October as a Halloween gift for Jen and our little bundle of joy just arrived yesterday. He was backordered for many months and I gotta say, he was more than worth the long wait. This just might be the coolest thing i've ever held in my hands...



The detail and work that went into this thing is absolutely amazing and I honestly feel like Sam himself is sitting next to me right now as I type this - it's a feeling that's equal parts creepy and awesome. Sideshow always crafts some highly impressive shit but they really outdid themselves with this one. And yes, the mask does come off!



Sam is currently yet again on a wait list on Sideshow's website but I just wanted to post this for anyone who may be teetering on the brink of ordering him. $59.99 may sound a little steep but believe me, if you're a fan of Trick 'r Treat, you will love this thing and you will be so glad you got it before it goes for double or triple that price on eBay. And honestly, it'd be well worth every penny even if the price was doubled or tripled.

I hereby proclaim this the best horror collectible of '09....maybe of all time.

Ooh, nice 'n creepy. Where are you putting him? In the dinning room? Kid's bedroom?

I'm building him a crib this weekend. Isn't that what you do when you have a baby?

Sam Boots, our second born. (Buddha Boots = #1) ;] He's sleeping with us til you finish that crib and you know what that means? Blood and Pumpkin seeds everywhere!

Holy fuck that is awesome.

Johnny said...

It is, it is. And believe me, no pictures I could take or descriptions I could come up with would do it justice. It must be seen and held to truly be appreciated.

Wow. That is totally awesome. Would love it, but the price is too steep, sadly. Thanks for sharing the pics! Hope your little family has many, many happy years creeping the Hell out of the neighbors!
