Hat Review: Halloween Harbinger 2013

Halloween Harbinger 2013

Halloween Harbinger 2013

Mesh & Texture: 9.5/10
The Halloween Harbinger 2013 has a brand-new mesh, and is fortunately not just a retexture. At first, I actually thought it was a retexture of The Grand Pumpkin, a similar limited item created in 2010. Upon further inspection, though, I saw that the mesh caves in where the mouth is, whereas The Grand Pumpkin is just a textured sphere with a hood. The texture of the hood is a bland grey color. It has no shading, just plain dark grey all the way around it. The face, though, is very detailed. It's a pumpkin face with angry-looking eyes and a sinister, jagged grin spread cheek to cheek. The face even has realistic edges and wrinkles on it which I found quite impressive.

Price: 10/10
The price of Halloween Harbinger 2013 is the same as last year's halloween harbinger, All Hallow's Harbinger; 1,031 robux. A high price and unaffordable by a majority of roblox, but I actually find it quite fair. Compared to the Lord Umberhallow package's hat, which will set you back 2,500 robux(and in my opinion looks worse), this is a much better-looking and cheaper alternative.


For those of you who don't know, Halloween Harbinger 2013 is the followup to the All Hallow's Harbinger. Pictured below are Halloween Harbinger 2013[left] and All Hallow's Harbinger[right] next to each other.

As I'm sure I don't need to mention, Halloween Harbinger 2013 is much better-looking than its ancestor. All Hallow's Harbinger fits on your character oddly and doesn't actually cover up much of your head. The Halloween Harbinger 2013 covers your robloxian's head completely, goes with many combos, and just looks completely awesome in general. Halloween Harbinger 2013 > All Hallow's Harbinger, no contest.

Overall: 9.9/10
The Halloween Harbinger 2013 is definitely a huge improvement from last year's All Hallow's Harbinger. You can tell from the fact that it's been bought over a thousand times in a few weeks whereas All Hallow's Harbinger sold 472 times in almost a YEAR of being onsale. I say if you have 1,031 robux to spare, Halloween Harbinger 2013 is an awesome hat to have and is definitely worth the price.
