I just ordered a pumpkin from Michaels with a 50% off coupon. I will let you know what it is like when I get it.

Oh perfect, thank you Pumpken! I'm curious as to how they will glow and what the pumpkin looks like.

Great, Ken! I saw these in-store today - they are the Ashland brand (at least here in SoCal). The tag price is $29.99, and the date stamp on the bottom shows 2017. Anxiously awaiting your verdict :Grinning2:
Carving since 2006; mostly real 'kins

I got my pumpkin and cut out the bottom. Unfortunately, there are still ribs in the inside. I will try to carve it in the next few days and let you know if there are any issues.

I Ordered (6) the other day (I was Completely out), and Don't want to risk Losing Sales...
I'll wait until a really good sale to Really Stock Up....
(I also have 100 Classic #8 Funkins on the way - )... :Smiling:

I Assumed the Ribs were still going to be there.... Micheal's needs the Ribs in the pumpkins for extra strength for those Pumpkin Flower arrangements they Sell.... (this is why they wont Budge on it)..... :Frustrated:
I got one foot in the grave, the other on a banana peel !

Here is my first 2017 Michael's pumpkin carved with a stoneykins.com pattern. The foam is good, paint is good, thickness is good.... I like it. The only bad think is having to shave out the ribs. Oh well, for 50% off and no shipping it is a pretty good deal.

We think A like, I also took advantage of the same Deal.
Free Shipping - But Got Slammed on Sales Tax...

I have (100) 9" Coming in - and (50) 13"...
The 9" are for those name in a Jack-O Mouth... I carved over 100 Last Year... Sooo...

They Sent me Like 50 Tracking Numbers - LMAO

I'm going to Spend an Entire Day, Getting the Ribs Out, and Putting them in Boxes...
(well 50 of the small and the 50 Large... I like them Ready for Patterns, right out of the Box...

I bought the Boxes Last Year, after Halloween, so these Counts were Planned.. - Hope they Sell.
I spent a LOT !
