When I went to Home Depot to check out the new Halloween props I was expecting to be blown away by the large werewolf and maybe one or two others. But one thing caught me by complete surprise, the Animated Flaming Scarecrow animatronic. I saw him but didn’t immediately pay much attention to him. But when I saw him in action, I was completely blown away by how cool he was. If you haven’t the seen the Flaming Scarecrow in action please check out the video below.

What I love about the Flaming Scarecrow is the fact that his arms jump out and try to grab you. That could make for a fun scene in the backyard, especially for an unsuspecting guest. Standing at six feet tall the Scarecrow is deceptively large and is much bigger than it looks.

At $99.99, the Scarecrow is very reasonably priced. But, you have to keep in mind that Home Depot gets impatient around early October and starts marking their Halloween stuff down to make room for all their Christmas merchandise that is piling up in the back room. I’ve seen props get marked down for as low as $20 before. I’m not sayin Home Depot will mark the Flaming Scarecrow down that much, but if you can wait them out you might be able to get him for at least 20 to 50% off.

I am definitely going to think about adding the Flaming Scarecrow to my collection. Especially if I can get him for around $50. That would be a steal! Please keep checking back!

There is a lot of really cool stuff this year if you love Halloween props. Be sure to check out our Animatronic Halloween Store to see what’s new for 2020!
