Wake up and smell the pumpkin
Another Lambda Pumpkin by itsmewallis:
Yet another by thealmightyshoe on Tumblr:
This insanely detailed carving of Lamarr the heacrab with the HL2 logo was done by DeviantArt user ravenousdarkhart. Trying to carve a 3D creature into solid pumpkin flesh has gotta be hard, but this has been pulled off perfectly.
Half Life Halloween by ravenousdarkhart
As you may expect, the Lambda logo is a popular symbol for Valve-fan pumpkin carving:
Half-Life Pumpkin by HmcdlNny
This one above was created by DeviantArt user ‘HmcdlNny‘. One of the troubles with the Half-Life Lambda logo is its circularity, which prevents an entire circle from being cut, so notches are needed to keep it in shape.
Below is another by ‘Kireek’, which apparently won 2nd place in NSider2‘s 2010 Pumpkin Carving Contest:

Finally here’s one I found when searching around. I couldn’t find the name of the creator but this one, unlike the others somehow managed to carve the entire Lambda ring hollow.
Moving onto Portal, here are two incredibly detailed pumpkin carvings from the Joystiq pumpkin carving competition:
Michael’s Portal pumpkins
Below is another pumpkin from the competition by Cory Knapp of a faithful companion cube! It seemed though that this one either rotted or was turned into soup rather than being euthanized.
