    I hope that makes it to [email protected] What was the price?

    @‌binaryeye
    It sells for $9.99. I'm sure it will go to [email protected] Maybe the B&M stores are a bit ahead as my store also has all of the advent calendars now.

    A Halloween set last year was the Witch's Head (I wish I'd grabbed a few more of those), so I'm curious to see what the Halloween poly will be this year. This bat, though, is really kind of cool looking!

    TRU will be getting #40055 at some point.

    LOVED the Witch's Head poly last year, bought several. Looking forward to seeing the Halloween merch take over the back-to-school area at Target in the next couple weeks & see what this year's poly will be.

    The Witch head went on brown clearance at TRUs that still had them so ~$0.90 each. Picked up a bunch for the parts. I looks like last years seasonal polys have transformed into the seasonal $9.99 box. The bat is like the easter rabbit one.

    Confused. Thought #40055 Pumpkin was Halloween set last year and #40032 Witch was 2012. I'm in the UK. Did the US and the UK get different sets?

    @Legokip, think @Huw would like images for the database for #40090?

    They are exclusives to the LEGO store when released, then Target or TRU gets them the following year.

    Yes, it even holds the pumpkin in its wings:

    @Lego_Star Yes, of course! I would scan the building instructions for Huw too, but I haven't got a scanner. :(

    @Huw, please feel free to use any of these images, along with this one 40091-1 appearing on the back of the instructions booklet:

    @Legokip Great pictures, thanks especially for posting the one of #40091! Really fond of seasonal sets.

    @Lego_Star You're welcome! I feel the same about autumn holidays and Christmas.
    I can't take the credit for the build - my son couldn't wait and had it together before I knew it! :)

    That might be the cutest bat I've ever seen.

    Best turkey yet. And love the piece count on the bat for $10. It would be cute if the $10 sets also included a micro build that was around 15 parts.

    Nice I am liking the turkey and the Bat will have too pick them up. The seasonal models are getting better each year

    Wonder if they'll be a snowman or santa for christmas in the same sytle.

    Is the other set in this auction a new set or an old one?

    Tomorrow I think, same with the Advents.

    Seriously thinking about hitting the LEGO store tomorrow, as the Bat is out, and the Space guy I believe is also available as well for a purchase of 99 USD or over.

    I saw the Halloween cake topper you mentioned at my California LEGO store today.
