Disney’s The Nightmare Before Christmas turns 30 this month, and NECA is celebrating with the reveal of a brand new upcoming Jack Skellington articulated figure.
The 9″ tall collectible, complete with a jack-o-lantern pumpkin, is available for pre-order now for $34.99.
Jack Skellingtonwith Pumpkin 9” Articulated Figure will start shipping in January 2024.
NECA previews, “Celebrate the 30th anniversary of Disney’s Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas with this new Jack Skellington articulated figure! This frightful fellow is dressed in fabric clothing and stands 9” tall. His fully articulated body has an attachable display stand to let you create a wide variety of delightfully expressive poses and comes with a pumpkin accessory. Resealable clamshell packaging.”
In 1993, the Tim Burton-produced The Nightmare Before Christmas opened just before Halloween and quietly ran just through the first weekend of December. Directed by Henry Selick, the stop-motion animated film featured the voice of Fright Night‘s Chris Sarandon as Jack Skellington, king of Halloween Town, who discovers Christmas Town, but his attempts to bring Christmas to his home causes confusion. Nightmare has since become a pop culture phenomenon with Disney celebrating the film with several re-releases, a massive array of products, and even a dark ride at Disney Land (every year, they redress “Haunted Mansion” with that of characters and scenes from the film).
The brand new NECA reveal comes at the tail end of a very busy month for The Nightmare Before Christmas as its 30th anniversary has unleashed a slew of new merchandise celebrating the stop-motion animated film. The Jack Skellington articulated figure will, at the very least, offer a much more affordable and accessible option than the Monster High doll that sold out within seconds.
If you need even more Jack Skellington in your life, look for the Pumpkin King to spread holiday cheer over in Fortnite.
