Army of Darkness building
Like I said, summer is the prelude to Halloween.
Right now I'm likely kicked up in my recliner, alternating between Castlevania Collection and napping. I'm fully taking advantage of the holiday weekend to get some much needed rest, so much that I wrote this post a week in advance (hello from the past!). But like I said, summer is the prelude to Halloween mofo and something Halloween has been on my mind recently is the Dollar General Halloween army for this year. Mofo.
The Dollar General Halloween Army isn't the official name for the series of spooky figures. It doesn't have one, but it's my best way to reference them. Beginning in 2017, DG released the Skeleton Army as part of their Halloween offerings. Ten skeleton warriors for a dollar, what could be better? Last year in 2018, they followed that up with the Mummy Army with the Skeleton Army returning as well. This year I can only hope they keep the tradition going. It's something I've grown to love over the past few years.
I've been speculating what the 2019 set could be. Hoping the excellence continues and hoping for something really great. I've went back and forth on what kind of monsters I'd like to see as an army. I'm strongly resting on 3 ideas. Vampires, werewolves, and Frankenstein Monsters. An army of those monsters carrying swords and axe's seems amazing. Part of me wonders about witches and warlocks, or even a generic fantasy set. But Vampires are the one I'd want to see most. Full cliche Dracula style vampires in capes and suits brandishing mid-evil weapons would be amazing.
