Doesn't Spooktacular run for a few days? The site only indicates 10/26--I take it this is the start date.

I'm truly looking forward to it this year -- last year was a blast.

Sideshow Radio says Oct. 26-31.

Thanks for the info. My assumption is correct - 10/26 is the start date.

May have to take official time off this year; snuck in during work hours and had to lock my office door....boss nearly had conniptions. :D He may not be as tolerant this year. Had a GREAT time last year.

Jess -- you WILL NOT get everything this time .... um....I hope. :peace

Those were optional, just for demographic purposes only. As far as I know, it's not stored anywhere as attached to anyone's name or anything, and you don't even have to answer. It's all good.

Okay this might sound stupid, but I really didnt start collecting Sideshow figures till last November. What is Spooktacular?

It's the best craziest on line chat give away that Sideshow have ever done. Goes on for ages.

There will be plenty of time left for sleep when the November gets here. :google :google

I can't wait this event is so much fun it's not even funny. Last year was just kick arse!! I do have to sub part of the first day it goes but nothing else after it and it runs during when my B-Day Happens so I'm hoping to give myself a little gift. :D

I always enjoy Sideshow's events. I just hope we'll get a couple of Bond announcements during Spooktacular. :violin Not that I'm going to hem and haw about it, though.

Spooktacular is coming, and it looks like we are ready for it. I love the spider webs and ghosts on the revised banner.

I was just getting ready to compliment Dave on the banner, guess I'll thank FF instead :D
It does look awesome!! Is it only supposed to be the one on the front page. I'm not getting a revised banner on any of the other pages?

Awesome job FF!! :joy

The banner looks grrrrrreat Dave. Both cool, scary and cozy (??) at the same time. Puts the board in the right mood for haloween

Frankenfan did this? :mexwave Good work there!

FF the banner looks great!! :horror

Back on topic, I hope SS announces a new "The Dead" figure. This would be the perfect time for some more Zombies.

I'd also kill for an Ygor figure. :idea Repeat, YGOR FIGURE!!

Is anybody at SS paying attention?? :horse

Thanks to Dave for the mention and to everyone for your kind words about the Halloween banner!

I feel you pain, Bonehead, I feel your pain...

I wasn't exactly sure where to post my appreciation for the Banner! This is awesome! Way to go! The fact that I am all geeked out over a banner featuring new toys is probably an indication of my geekstosterone levels!

Awesome banner FrankenFan! Love that you put Darla in it!

Thanks, again, everyone!

Since this a Halloween-themed header, the spotlight is on the monsters!

Once again, FrankenFan wows with the banners - great job! :)

As far as Spooktacular is concerned, don't get overly worried that it's going to be as super-intensive as last year. We're going to try our best, but a key member of the Spooktacular team from last year (I'm referring here to SideshowChris of course) is going to be out of the country on his honeymoon during the WHOLE THING! How dare he? I'm of the opinion that he did it on purpose...

"What day would you like to get married, honey?"

"I don't care as long as I'm M.I.A. for Spooktacular this year!"

:angelsmil

Don't worry, I'm sure the Mistress will find a way for him to make it up to us few he left behind to do the dirty work :zzwhip *mwahahaha* (that's the Mistress' evil laugh, I can here it all the way from here)

And we will titillate and tantalize all Spooktacular participants with evil-ly delicious tidbits. As much as we can get away with at least...

Great job on the banners Kurt! As usual! I wish I had half your knowledge of Photoshop! Oh, and the comparison pictures are finally posted! It only took me, what, like two months or so... :o :duh :pow :sleep :slap

Pass on my congrats to Chris on his upcoming marriage.
I am so looking forward to the Spooktacular.
I hope to scoop up some free stuff if possible.

Sideshow is the best :banana

Will there be exclusive questions to here like last years VH Frankenstein question? That was sweet. I got the Frankenstein bust, Brides bust, and 12" VH figure for $9 of shipping :google That was a sweet prize. PLEASE do something like that again :D
