Hasbro's 1993 The Nightmare Before Christmas figures
In 1993 Hasbro released two series of action figures to coincide with the release of the popular NBX movie.
There were a total of 10 figures released altogether, six in the first series and four in the second as well as a series of four plush toys.
The rarest of these by far was the Santa Jack from series one which sells for up to $700 on eBay!!
Each figure came on a purple blister pack made to look like the movie poster. The back of the pack identified the character in the pack and also photos of the rest of the characters available.
Each of the figures were available individually, except for Lock, Shock and Barrel, who were released as a three pack along with the masks they were seen with in the movie but unfortunately without their bathtub!
The sculpting on these figures, particularly when compared with many of Hasbro’s other figures, was very good and were pretty accurate to the characters in the movie.
Each figure also had its own unique accessory from the movie, which was a nice touch as well as a display stand and they were reasonably well articulated, compared to most figures released in the 90’s.
Bearing in mind that these figures were released in the mid 90’s when action figures were still regarded more as a toy for kids than as a collectors item or for adults, they came and went fairly quickly.
A matter of note and something to watch out for however, is that NECA re-released these some years later in almost identical packaging but labelled as “Limited Edition”.
