Happy Halloween, everyone!

Check out these amazing pumpkin carvings from Texas art teacher Scott Cummins. He features a variety of designs on his PumpkinGutter.com web site. Many of his coolest jack-o-lanterns are based on movie characters.

You'll find big name movie characters like Iron Man and Yoda in his pumpkin portfolio. The one of Davy Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean is insanely detailed. There are also some really well-done minor characters like Large Marge's scary face from Pee Wee's Big Adventure.

For the full gallery of carvings from 2000 through this year, check out Scott's web site. Most pumpkins also include photos in lights-out, full-glow mode.

King Kong




Tin Man

Napoleon Dynamite

Wallace & Gromit

Davy Jones

Iron Man

Editor's Note: "Swag Bag" is our not-so-regular column of cool, movie-inspired collectibles, toys, and clothing. We like to consider it our version of the gift bags given to annual attendees of the Oscars. The big difference is that we don't have a prestigious awards ceremony to give away this stuff so we simply list the findings here. If you have a suggestion for this feature, please send it to us.
