Countdown to Halloween 2013 Day 31: Angry Birds Star Wars Bucket, Stickers and Fruit Gummies

Halloween is finally here and I'm finally sharing pictures of the Angry Birds Star Wars bucket and stickers that I got a few weeks ago with a cheeseburger Happy Meal from McDonald's. The Death Star in the background has a pig snout and ears:

There are two pigs dressed up as two different versions of Boba Fett (yes, I know it's not a very good picture showcasing them but they are on there):

The Angry Birds Star Wars stickers features a lot of the characters in costumes (my favorite has to be the Ewok):

As an added bonus, I found an empty box of Angry Birds Star Wars Fruit Gummies last month in the parking lot of the store where I work. Surprisingly, it too features Chuck the Yellow bird dressed up as Han Solo and Terrance the Big Brother Bird as Chewbacca (this is number three in a series of five):

This wraps up this year's Countdown to Halloween and I hope everyone has a safe and spooky one.

Countdown to Halloween 2013 Day 30: Women Wednesday: Elvira at Hit It Rich Casino Slots

Elvira is a new high limit game at Hit It Rich! Casino Slots on Facebook. There are some cool Halloween theme graphics plus some featuring the Mistress of the Dark:

The game features super symbol free spins:

My favorite graphic is the over-size Elvira symbol:

Pick A Coffin is the only bonus game that I got to play:

There are four different free spins with the over-size Elvira symbols:

My only complaint is that Hit it Rich! Casino Slots is made by Zynga and it loads slow, not at all and/or crashes my computer like countless other games that I have played by them.

Countdown to Halloween 2013 Day 29: Frankie Stein Bucket and Stickers

My sister and I actually got cheeseburger Happy Meals about two weeks ago. They are doing Monster High buckets and stickers for the girls and Angry Birds Star Wars buckets with stickers for the boys this month. I got the Angry Birds Star Wars with Han Solo and Chewbacca bucket and stickers but I might show them in another post. My sister gladly gave me her Frankie Stein bucket and stickers, which I am showcasing in today's post. There are two images of her on the blue bucket with one being a close-up. I really like the black handle for it features a bat, the skull with a bow over MH, crossbones and a lightning bolt.

The Frankie Stein stickers are pretty cool especially the skull with the bow and all the different little lightning bolts:

Countdown to Halloween 2013 Day 28: The Return of Frute Brute

I didn't spot the monster cereals at the local Wal-Mart Super Center until October 10th this year. They were on an endcap and had all five of the new boxes. I grabbed Frute Brute because I was looking more to his return than Yummy Mummy and I'm more partial to the werewolf. I figured I could pick that one up when I finished eating the Frute Brute cereal. It took my two weeks to finish the cherry flavor frosted cereal with spooky-fun marshmallows. Yeah, they didn't taste anywhere as good as I remembered them being when I was a kid. The local Wal-Mart Super Center still had a full endcap of the monster cereals on October 17th so I didn't pick any up since I still had half a box of Frute Brute. Big mistake for they were all gone when I returned to the store on October 24 (they weren't kidding when they said that they were only available for a limited time). I ended up getting Cap'n Crunch Halloween cereal instead (I still have half a box of that to finish). Anyway, here are scans of the return of Frute Brute cereal box:
Front of Frute Brute 2013 box
I love the "Strange Things Happen Once In A Fruity Moon" cartoon on the back of the box:
Back of Frute Brute 2013 box
The left side of the box has five Mega Monster Trivia questions (yikes, I only knew one):

Nutrition facts are on the right side of the box:

You can eat about half the box to get your recommended daily dose of whole grain:

The Frute Brute 2013 box is made out of 100% recycled paperboard:

I always liked the fact that the cherry flavored cereal is paw shaped. I should have taken pictures of all the cereal shapes but this was the only one that I didn't wolf down:

The shop owners are once again wearing cool costumes and handing out candy. If you collect twenty-two pieces of candy, then you can trade it for a prize (I'm was at twenty-one before the game crashed on me). Ruby is dressed up as the Black Widow from Marvel Comics but with blonde hair:

Dracula starring Jonathan Rhys Meyer starts tonight on NBC and here is the official trailer:
Looks to be a period piece with flashbacks to how he became a vampire. I will be watching it even though it means giving up watching Haven on Syfy.

Countdown to Halloween 2013 Day 24: Dead or Alive Gets Spooky

Dead or Alive is an online game at Facebook set in the Old West. I have been playing it on and off for a while now (I'm level 126) but only have two friends that are also actively playing it. Today they started their Halloween game and they are playing up the witch theme as you can tell by the cool artwork:
Artwork for Dead or Alive Halloween game 2013
Here is what the introduction screen (as shown below) states:

Be brave and welcome The Necromancer by trying your luck with our Halloween game: every 6 hours you can light up a Jack-o'-lantern which will randomly grant you one of the 6 Magical Crafts collection items. Once you have one of each you can trade them for one Necromancer! If at the end you don't have a complete collection but you have gained at least 10 Magical Crafts of any kind you will be able to trade them all for one Necromancer. Read the complete rule-set on our forum: http://bit.ly/1a8iJR4
Rules for Dead or Alive Halloween game 2013
Here are the three pumpkins in the Dead or Alive Halloween game but you can only choose one (I chose the first one):

I won a broom on my first time playing:

I love when online games at Facebook do something special like this for Halloween and other holidays.

Countdown to Halloween 2013 Day 21: Monster Head Pens

Not much information about these monster head pens are available. They were found at a local discount store for a dollar each without any kind of display. The heads can be squeezed so that their brains pop out. The labels state that they were produced by Design International Group, Inc. of La Verne, CA.

The blue monster head pen has his tongue sticking out and a bulging eye:

His/her bubble brains are green with orange at the bottom (yes, that's my thumb):
