Fun review - thank you. I have 13 of the clowns now, & 17 of the Pumpkin Heads. The clowns, I think, look pretty neat with a pumpkin instead of the hat. Incidentally, with 2 of my clowns, I wasn't given back pieces, but 2 front pieces without any printing on them. Combined with the regular back pieces, I can make 2 entirely red body suits. PM USA is supposed to send me 2 replacement back pieces, as 2 fronts can't be put together.

Well, in repeats, that's nice - variety and all :)

I don't even bother, after the way they dealt with me last time (years ago).

JL, they must have put one of your back pieces in mine as I actually opened one up yesterday morning and had an extra back piece. It's yours, if you need it!

I like this series, but thus far that Creeper and the Caretaker have eluded me!

Great review as always, Tahra! Thank you  :)
Interesting parts, but that's about it for me - I remember watching Scooby-Doo sometimes, but was never a favourite cartoon. My youngest kid likes monsters and halloween, that being the main reason for me to get them.

Your kept figures: You made such nice cowboys, well done! I find most of these figures very difficult to customise... I like the neckpiece solution on the creeper, covering the weird mouth. Your Indian doctor head is just a perfect fit, amazing! What a great idea for that head from the movie! :love:

Same here - I know we watched it when we were younger (where's Scrappy?) but I only remember (barely) the main characters.. Never watched movies or anything... These "ghosts" I don't remember at all. So, parts :P

Thank you - but do keep in mind many of the kept are almost original...


I like the neckpiece solution on the creeper, covering the weird mouth.

I love both eyes (that one and the woman's), but I HATE the mouths. My original idea was to use a caveman beard, but these double faced heads don't have any beard slots :wall:  No idea what to do with the moronic worm. Who in Hades messed with the head printers to make them all look like morons?!  >:(


Your Indian doctor head is just a perfect fit, amazing! What a great idea for that head from the movie! :love:

It was mere chance that that head was on top of the pile, facing up, when I went to the figures box (heads+frames) looking for a simple one for the draft... Wait. Scratch that. Yeah, it was a brilliant idea, wasn't it? ;D  (lesson learned, Seregil! ;) )

Great review. I really like the black and white guy made from the Zen Tuo head. Looks great. Much more like a decent comic book character than anything we can expect from the next wave of Everdreamerz.

Thank you - I used most of an old ghost, and then remembered that torso... Took me a while to find it, just when I thought there wasn't one, there it was :)

The everwhatsit are more parts.... some nice ones though, apparently. Properly used among three or four klickys, I suppose  :P
