A hearty Halloween hello to all the fanboys who put their squash fruit skills to the test in our 1st Annual Xbox 360 Fanboy Pumpkin Carving Contest. Some of you obviously know how to carve pumpkins. Richard and I have narrowed down the entries to 10 finalists based on carving skill and originality, which we now present to our readership for a vote. The owner of the top Xbox-O-Lantern will receive a copy of Gears of War

with slightly less cool prizes for 2nd and 3rd place (XBL Unplugged Vol. 1
respectively). The ballot will close at midnight tonight, with any ties decided by a random drawing, so pick your favorite. This isn't Chicago, so please vote only once. We'll be plugging this post throughout the day to ensure as many participants as possible besides your Mom and friends. Pics are listed after the break in no particular order.
Have a gander at the images below, and then come back up here and vote for your favorite. Update
: It has been brought to our attention that the last entry "Miktroy: Gears of War Fenix" is nothing but a photoshop fake. Our rules clearly stated that entrants must "carve an Xbox 360-related
Jack O' Lantern." Since no carving was done, this pumpkin has been disqualified. Since the poll is already open, we will simply discount any votes received for this pumpkin.
