And finally… some of you already guessed it… our first place winner is Ian Wagner with his totally rad Samus jack o’ lantern!

I doubt many people will argue with me when I say that this is one outstanding entry! Alyssa and I both agreed this was the clear winner. I love the effect you get between day and night with the nighttime showing her face through the visor (OMG SPOILER ALERT SAMUS IZ A GIRL)!

For getting first place Ian gets a whole mess of stuff, including the 16″x 20″ Halolz Poster (v1.1), five Wolf stickers, Accordion Hero T-Shirt, BLOW ME T-Shirt, This Is My Axe T-Shirt and a Ninja-Bot shirt of his choice! Just don’t wear them all at once or you will die of awesome shirt overload!

    Wow, I thought the best I was going to get was honorable mention, especially after seeing some of the pumpkins over at Kotaku.

    […] And finally, our 1st place winner for 2009….. with an overwhelming 23 (out of a possible 24 points)…… Ian Wagner and his awe-inspiring “Mother Brain & Baby Metroid” pumpkin set! Pretty amazing job, right? Well it’s certainly not surprising as he was our 1st place winner in 2008 as well! (with his impressive Samus pumpkin) […]
