If The Cheat is Pikachu, where is is lightning-bolt tail? Also, something as popular and well-known as Pokemon would sorta cramp TBC's style.

The Cheat is clearly dressed up as The Cheat dyed red.

Yeah, I think it's just Homestar's foot too. On that note however, I've always thought it would be cool to have The Cheat dress as one of the Angry Beavers. The overall shape of his body would be perfect for it.

Well, if you look closely, it looks like there's black between where the Cheat should end and where Homestar's foot should start. I don't know though, you're probably right. I'm just making wild guesses at this point.

I get the feeling that it will probably not be released until the last possible nanosecond, just like what happened in 2005. Who knows; maybe this year, they'll do another choose-your-own dealie.

I really hope they do something soon, though, as every morning now, when I wake up, I anxiously reach the website to see if it's been released yet, only to find zip-arooni.

Well, TBC's done Mario with :kot: (plus with :sm: as a thwomp here, maybe) and that's everyone's favorite plumber, along with good ol' Joe.

Holy crap, I think I know who the :cheat: is! He's Ripberger! Or Fightgar! Or Reynold! Or one of the earlier suggestions!

Signed up just to do this:

:hr: : Dr. Beakman Image

:sb: : Carmen Freak'n Electra

:sm: : Thwomp

:sad: : Chef Paul Prudhomme Image
He's got the hat and the jacket, and he's already a bigger guy.

:cheat: : Possibly Tum Tum from 3 Ninjas?

:bubs: : Junkyard Dog Image
Got the hair, and especially the chain.

:coachz: : Afro Man Image
I'd cry with joy

:marzi: : Stevie Ray Vaughn Image

:pom: : Either The Punisher or The Duke from Boondock Saints Image

:kot: : Hello Kitty maybe, but I could see Meow Mix because of it being a foodstuff

:poop: : The only think keeping me from going full out Zoidberg is that spot on the top of his head. Hell with it, it's Dr. Zoidberg most likely. Unless it isn't.

:homsar: : Captain. CAAAAAVEMAAAAAAN! Image

Those are some good pictures. It does look like :bubs: has some hair instead of a helmet like some have suggested. I was imagining something around his neck as well (like a tie).

I also really like the idea of :hr: being Beakman.

:sad: reminded me of the Stay-Puff Marshmallow man, but his bottom is all wrong. He might be that in a future 'ween toon, though.

The predator costume might belong to the "villain" of the toon, or possibly :senor: .
:sb: is not pictured.

Pom Pom already used that costume way back in the first Homestar Halloween special.

AHHHHH!!! Pom Pom is SCUD!!! The Cheat is Drywall!!!! Two of the coolest characters ever invented for a comic that not nearly enough people read! Whoa, Pom Pom even taped pinky fingers to his guns, on account of SCUD shooting up stuff the way other people drink tea - with class and style.

Oh, and I have no idea what the name of the character is, but Strong bad must be the cover of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy?? Most original and unusual!

Thank God they didn't make Strong Bad say that the costume store was out of Predator costumes.

Location: Ryanopolis, or the old Pietimer Place. Whatever works really
yeah when i saw it at first, i wondered if Strong Bad was Alien X, cause that was the only thing i could think of with a starry body like that, but i doubt that TBC would know about it/do a costume of something that recent

I'm 100% certain on 4 of them. The rest, not so much.

Yeah, this is the one. Good call dude. That was a heck of a guess.

If it's not too much trouble, could we please move the discussion on the toon into this thread: http://forum.hrwiki.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=14810.

Anyway, new question: what are the odds that there will be yet another round of fan-made Homestar costumes this year next week?

Dang! Pom Pom wasn't Nicholas Angel from Hot Fuzz....
And I was certain!!!!!!
Oh well...
According to one of my previous posts, you can now slap me around the head with a haddock, CaptainPastHisPrime... go on! Do it! :-D
Anyways this toon was pretty good, loved the Captain Caveman thing. And I wish the Poopsmith had got scared and run away doing the 'whooop whoop-whoop whoop whoop' thing that Zoidberg does... if only he could talk all the time.......

Should they be split? I thought this was the toon thread. Maybe we should change the title to "Halloween '08 Teaser Discussion" instead of "(With Teaser Discussion)"

No, this isn't the toon thread. It's the yearlong speculation thread. I performed the split. There were a couple of posts that could have gone either way.

Congratulations to the following people for first suggesting the correct answers in this thread:

The only one I recognise is Strong Mad as a Thwomp.
Note: this was also proposed as a potential costume way before the teaser by Chris Bad, Color Printer, and HomestarWinner.

Well, I'm at a loss for what they all look like, but "Strong Bad" looks like the Predator, ... the Poopsmith looks like Dr. Zoidberg (what with the lobster pincers for hands and that strange nose-like dealie on his face) and Homsar clearly looks like Captain Caveman.

Nobody correctly guessed Coach Z (DJ Lance Rock), The Cheat (Drywall), Strong Sad (Sam Kinison), or Pom Pom (SCUD), and of course because of the gag it was impossible to guess what Strong Bad's actual costume would be (the planet on the cover of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy).

Good work everyone!

Woo hoo! 5 for 12! Not bad. I'm mad at myself for not guessing Scud. I've never read the comics, but I totally remember the character from a review of a Scud video game in Game Informer magazine from like ten years ago. I remember the pinkies sticking out.

But my favorite part is Homestar calling Strong Sad Ma Fratelli, because one of my friends used to think she was played by Sam Kinison in drag. Guess he wasn't the only one.

And who says the Brothers Chaps don't accept costume ideas from the general public? I remember last year when someone suggested that Homestar should be Artie the Strongest Man In the World for 2007. And come Halloween of that year, who should he be but Artie!

Of course, it could all just be merely coincidental.

Now, before we officially say R.I.P. to this year's Halloween and start on next year's Halloween ideas, any chance that there will be another round of fan costume commentaries hosted by Strong Bad?

I sure hope so. I love to see people's sad attempts to look like cartoon characters. It makes me laugh.
