It all started with a crane game, littered with various different Halloween plushies. Right there, facing me, perfectly positioned for the almighty claw to grasp, is Trick-r-Treat's Sam.
About eleven stupid dollars later, I realized that this particular claw is weaker than a Caterpie fighting a Charizard. There was no way in this plane of existence for me to win that Sam plush via this crane machine. I walked away, heavy-hearted and eleven bucks poorer.
That being said, this plush has awakened a new purpose in life. A new challenge that I will strive all month long to accomplish. I call this challenge…
THE SEARCH FOR SAM
I will possess a Sam figurine, action figure, statuette, plushie, something by All Hallow’s Eve. Trick-r-Treat has been one of the few essential Halloween movies ever since I saw it back in 2008. How has a Sam collectible evaded me for so long?
This month, I vow to change that. And I invite you to take this journey with me.
