  1. What are the BEST C7 LED retrofit bulbs? And when I say BEST I mean the absolute closest to incandescent. I can't stand the cold look of LED lights, I am going back to incandescent's next year but i'd like to still use LED C7's to line my house, only because i'd prefer 1 watt per bulb instead of 5 or 7 watts. If I can't find what i'm looking for, then i'll just use incan's to line the house. Thanks, Mike
  2. If you're talkin the one inside. It's not blow mold, looks more like fiberglass. All american Christmas Company made it, i believe. http://www.allamericanchristmas.com/fs/fiberglass-nativity/exclusive
  3. Look at the weight, 22.3 pounds. I don't know any blowmolds that weight 22.3 pounds....
  4. That Santa and Snowman are ceramic, they aren't blowmolds.

  6. There is you're main problem, storing them outside. The reason they get brittle is from UV rays, unless you have UV resistant plastic tarps, the UV rays are still getting to the mold and making them brittle.
  7. I've had a couple that were brittle, as brittle as you are describing, I just put them on the curb and bought a replacement. Some do get more brittle than others, it's weird. Honestly, I think it's just bad luck, I have that same empire snowman, since the 80's and its not brittle at all. I know it's UV rays that dry them out and make them brittle but some seem to hold up much better than others.
  8. Those are very nice, I will watch them on ebay.
  9. That would be fantastic… I spent 2 weeks masking and painting my Poloron mechanical Santa. I have more blow molds to restore and would love an easier way.
  10. I got them thru the link I sent, they were only $9 a set, can't beat that.
  11. GE makes C7 sets with 8" spacing... Transparent Light Set 25 Count
  12. What light socket came with the snowman?? The one that I got with it is a 21 1/2" piece of u channel with a socket on each end.
  13. Well, I finally got him home.. I had to rebuild the motor, it was all gummed up, works great now... Here's a video… (click on the picture)
