    I have around 40 blow molds and probably around 5000 lights. Looking to continue to grow my blow mold collection.

  1. Another reason i don’t do flashing lights (first two reasons are time and I’m cheap) is that I actually like to look at the lights. Some of the new stuff is getting ridiculous. Looks more like a TV outside vs a light show.
  2. Yeah - there’s probably something. It seems most of the “easy up” type of stuff would be expensive. I guess that’s also why blow molds were popular, wire frames, etc. Ideally there’s something that fits into a smallish box but is plug and play and makes a big splash.
  3. I think this is what has made inflatables so popular. Plug them in, big coverage then they go into a tiny box. Same for the laser dots... I don’t do any music due to the time and money. The pre-programmed stuff would be cool but probably more than I would ever pay!!
  4. These are both awesome!! Nice finds!!
  5. I need to checkout the Goodwill outlet near me. I assume it’s all just random chance on what you find huh?
  6. Wow what a display. Unfortunately I have no idea on that reindeer head!!
  7. Other option is to pull the old lights out and replace them inside of your figures with new LEDs. I’ve had to do this on a number of my items. It takes awhile but that is ok. You have over 10 months to get it done 😂
  8. Merry Christmas everyone. I hope you have all had a great day. I wanted to share some pictures of my display. Still no where near where most of you are but getting bigger every year. Such a fun hobby. Will be time to take it down soon which stinks. It always goes too fast!! I’ll fix my upside down pictures from my laptop tomorrow!!
  9. No - always had the brochures for that place but never got there. Is it still open??
  10. I had one gfi tripping this evening. Found the culprit - an extension cord I had forgotten to stake that was facing upwards and full of water!! Got that sorted out and everything up and running!!
