October 20th marks one year of wedded bliss for Alaska and I, and we have rented a cabin in NC to celebrate (a Cabin in the Woods, if you will) Along with that wonderful gift, I recently received another in the mail. The newest addition to my Trick 'r Treat collection: Animated Sam!
I've wanted one of these adorable things since I first learned of their existence, but an original price tag of about $70, shipped, definitely turned me away. I kept an eye out for a price drop, and recently picked this guy up for about $25, shipped (his price is still fluctuating on Amazon.com, fyi, so it's possible he will drop even lower than that)
Here is Sam in action. I did not take this video, as I soon discovered that the sounds Animated Sam makes scare the hell out of our dog, Oliver Queen.
Animated Sam joins the ranks of my other Sams:
The larger book is about the movie,
the smaller, softcover is the graphic novelization.
This is quite a fantastic book on the ideas behind and the
making of the movie. And it includes all kinds of extras:
A little graphic novel of Season's Greetings.
Some really cool postcards (8 of them, I believe)
Sam poster! (that I totally forgot was in the book until this post,
but which now hangs beneath Laurie in our office)
