    Did you actually bring Spidey home like that, with it propped up in the back of your p/u truck?

    I'd imagine that would elicit some stares from passing motorists!

    Funny you should ask, Jay. Yeah, our neighborhood was having their annual Garage Sale Festival and my father-in-law put Spidey in his pick-up truck to haul it a few blocks to our house and all the kids in the neighborhood pointed and yelled, "Look! Spiderman! Wooooooo!" and chased after the truck. You'd think we were part of the Rose Bowl Parade or something. [​IMG]

    lmao!

    I would never buy something like that, but it looks like you scored big time with this one (assuming you find a buyer).

    You might want to cover it with a cloth most of the time. I could just see you waking up in the middle of the night and freaking out after seeing it in the shadows.[​IMG]

    If i'm not mistaken, I believe that is the same Spider-man that Blockbuster was giving away a couple of years ago, in fact i'm sure of it.

    You lucked out with that find. [​IMG]

    Hey, Colton, let me know if you come across one of those life-size Predator statues at a flea market, won't you? [​IMG]

    John, wouldn't you rather have a lifesized Michael Myers instead?

    Woah! Definitely sweet! and the price is GREAT! How early were you at the tag sale? I'd assume something like that wouldn't last long...

    I was away at a two-day LAN Party and my wife calls me and says, "Hey, our neighborhood garage festival is today and I saw a life-sized Spiderman for sale. Only $150! Very cool looking." I told her those usually cost between $1500 on up. She asks, "Should I get it?" HELL YES!!! Her dad put it in his pick-up truck and they drove four blocks back to our house with my wife holding Spiderman in the back (see first photo) and all the neighborhood kids were pointing at them and yelling, "Loooook! Spiderman! Yaaaaay!" while chasing after them. LOL! Wish I could have been there.

    I wouldn't mind getting one of these ...

    It's $5,900 ... my wife said it's too scary (and she's not talking about the price).

    I've had that pic in my photobucket album for a few months, I can't recall where I found it. But there are many sites that sell them, I found them by using Yahoo and typing in 'predator/life size figure' and a few hits came up.

    Very cool life-size Alien! [​IMG] I also saw a life-size Terminator Endoskeleton somewhere. [​IMG]
