    Even though I don't care, I understand this thread has made it back to the people mentioned here.

    While I don't have a problem with one, for the other... that's the reason I won't return to another bb community.

    As I was told once before... it's only Christmas lights.

    A while back I made mention of another person (EngineerSaysHeIsButIsn't) from another forum that makes PC boards and calls himself an engineer, the TASL folks know exactly who I am talking about, someone (Whiner) from this forum contacted that EngineerSaysHeIsButIsn't and EngineerSaysHeIsButIsn't posted his one and only post on this forum telling me how I was wrong. Yeah right. A flock of Heyboys does not an engineer make, EngineerSaysHeIsButIsn't.

    So William, is Carrie coming over to su casa to barbecue pieces of dead cow on the barbie soon? I encrypted the last sentence to keep it away from prying eyes.

    LOL.

    People have opinions and last time I checked, the first amendment of the Constitution Of The United States of America says, "Freedom of Speech."

    It may not be well liked but it's freedom of speech.

    Oh... the bbq, that won't be happening, lol.

    That is the Empire #1325 "Snowman with Broom", he was introduced as new in 1990 and was last shown in their 1999 catalog. In 2000 they changed his colors to the one with the red scarf with stars. They sold him in a litho box as #1325 from 1990 - 1994. From 1992 through 1994 they sold him both in the litho box and a 2 pack box, the one in the two pack box was designated as #1578 and it was continued through 1999 as a 2 pack.

    And that is what is throwing me off. But I did find a barcode on it that coinsides with the 1578 so we may be on to something.

    Yes, after looking at the picture again, I see that the nose is different, when I originally looked at the small picture I just thought that it was missing the nose like so many of the carrot nose ones are.

    I have a bunch of these snowmen and bought them used last year. They had Walmart price-tags on them and I was told they were bought in 1990. It's also funny how the ones in the catalog are so nicely painted and the ones you get and barely painted .. mass produced ..

    These snowmen are awesome for sequencing by replacing the light inside with a PVC pipe wrapped in bright white LEDs. It really makes them stand out !
    Thanks,

    Well update on the Empire Snowman he must have a proper funeral service he met a untimely death at our garage the other day he was being moved to be put up and was picked up by his head and was decapitated. The poor guy didnt stand a chance But when I went to finish picking him up he only just fell apart so I guess where it used to be stored at the temperature variables were to high and damaged the integrity of the plastic for it was extremly brittle, before this point granted it was in great shape by first looks and it felt solid. So Brad tip your pink bunny ears for the lost snowman

    Ok enough fun for the day
