As Halloween looms just around the corner, what better way to celebrate the spooky holiday than by immersing yourself in Tim Burton’s timeless animated masterpiece, “The Nightmare Before Christmas”? In honor of the film’s 30th anniversary in 2023, the official Funko Twitter account has unveiled a fresh wave of Pop! figures, catering to fans eager to expand their collections.
The initial set spotlights Jack Skellington, with the first figure capturing him in a singing pose near a tombstone, faithfully recreating the iconic scene from the film. For those seeking something a bit more compact, a keychain version of this figure is also on offer. Another variant features Jack engrossed in a laboratory setup as he endeavors to unravel the mysteries of Christmas. Additionally, fans can explore another figure of Jack, which includes a door adorned with a holiday theme from Halloween Town.
But that’s not all – Funko has even more surprises in store. They’ve unveiled a brand-new Pumpkin King variant of Jack, showcasing him as he appears during the film’s opening “This is Halloween” musical sequence. This figure is available both as a standard Funko Pop! and in a scented variant exclusively from Entertainment Earth, along with a keychain version. For enthusiasts keen on other characters from the film, Funko presents a Pop! figure of Sally, set amidst a graveyard, her vibrant colours providing a striking contrast to the somber world of Halloween Town. Finally, as an exclusive available through the Funko website, there’s an Oogie Boogie soda figure that glows in the dark.
It’s been over three decades since the film’s debut, and audiences continue to be captivated by its magic. Embracing the Halloween spirit to the fullest, Disney treated fans with a theatrical re-release of the film, which premiered in theatres last week and impressively secured the fifth spot at the box office, earning $4.2 million according to The Numbers. With the film gracing the big screen once more and a fresh wave of merchandise hitting the shelves, there’s truly no better time to revel in the enchantment of this animated classic.
The Nightmare Before Christmas figures from Funko are now available for order.
