  1. This is a great collection of pumpkins, makes mine pale in comparrison, thank you:)

  2. I don't know about the rest, but the first 3, plus the Predator one, were all done by the same guy.

  3. Exactly how many "pumpkins biting smaller pumpkins" and "barfing pumpkins" really need to be included in this lineup? Wouldn't one of each suffice? Other than that, a great collection of Halloween goodness.

  4. The sad part is... all these pumpkins have rotted away forever by now.
