I finally got my digital camera up and running on this computer, so I've taken some pics of some of the things I have in my memorabilia collection, to share with you all. Any questions, please ask! Sorry for the quality of a couple of the images - I think the batteries are dying. Enjoy! :)

Your house is so getting robbed by me.

The VHS tapes are quite amazing, and so are the laserdiscs. I'm crazy over the H2 LP with orange lettering and the H3 card of Debra? sitting on the car. You have to tell me how to get those.

Never seen those foreign CDs either.

I picked it up on eBay in 2003, from a seller here in Australia, funnily enough. It was only about $45 or something like that; I can't remember exactly. I've seen a few over the years, but certainly not one recently! Larry is right!

What exactly are those 'character cards'? I've never seen them before.

Brad, the H5 & H8 crew jackets came from eBay. The H2 one came from a friend of camera assistant Jiggs Garcia. He actually had two and the other went to someone else. Those "cards" are from the UK and were made to promote the DVD release. There's also one of Sara/Bianca Kajlich, but the person I bought them from lost it. Oh well! :)

"Resurrection", Larry. It's got the original logo on the front, with the knife going through the pumpkin. The back just says "crew", so I thought I'd try and show the bit with the film's name on it!

MrTaft

A lot of it came from eBay, some came from private sellers. Most of it was fairly cheap, but a couple of pieces were a bit more. I have not seen much of it for sale recently, so good luck finding everything. It will take a bit of time.

Hi, Vincent. This was a chance find on eBay. It was only $10 buy-it-now. You can imagine my shock and glee at the same time. I must have stumbled across it shortly after it was listed. I have seen one before and I think it went for heaps.

The H2 & H4 presskits are damn nice scores on their own, Larry. It would be nice to find a complete H3 presskit with folder (mine didn't come with one). They must be rare as hen's teeth.

Like Larry-New, I've yet to find even a partial H3 kit. H3 stuff is just soooo hard to find. Either the folks that have such H3 stuff are true fans and won't sell....or they're the *ones* that have the memorabilia and know that H3 is the runt of the litter as far as H-fans are concerned and are either too embarassed to sell it--or don't think they'll get peanuts for it.

Thanks, Darren. I appreciate it! ;)

Here's something I finally found in the back of my wardrobe tonight... It's a super-rare, super-cool "pumpkin light" that was issued to video stores in Germany for the video release of "Halloween: Resurrection" in 2003. It came in a pack along with a video poster and promotional flyer. The pumpkin is made like a Chinese lantern and folds up to basically nothing, and comes with an electric cable that is placed inside with a light bulb so the pumpkin "lights up". Never seen another one like it and definitely one of the most unique "Halloween" items out there, especially for the lack-luster H8! :)

Are you kidding me?! That lantern is awesome and I never even knew of such a thing! Wow, thanks for sharing pics of such a spectacular item! Now does this piece actually say "Resurrection" anywhere on it? It is an amazing piece to have in a collection, but at the same time, I like things that say the movie somewhere on it.

After unearthing a bunch of old and rare items from my collection today, I thought I'd resurrect this thread from the grave and post some pics, as I've been putting this stuff up around the place. Some of it I forgot I had - enjoy!

It's some kind of Japanese ad, Mike. The reverse side is covered in text and silly pictures of Japanese people. That pic and text is also the last page of the Japanese program, so they must have taken it from that.

God, that's crappy quality in the last pic, isn't it? :(
