It does look really cool and sparkly, but I agree that it's kind of a waste of bling. Especially expensive Prima bling! Plus, then you don't get to eat all the yummy seeds inside, which IMHO, is the best part of pumpkin carving.
Those are really cool, but I'm like the rest of you...not spending that much on a real pumpkin. Now, I am thinking that it would be pretty cool on the foam ones, but if I bring home another pumpkin my dh may come untrained, lol!
