Diamond Select Toys The Nightmare Before Christmas Select - Jack, Sally, and Oogie Boogie 43

 

It was 1993 when Tim Burton introduced The Nightmare Before Christmas stop-motion animation film, which to this day remains one of the most fan-favorite stop-motion films ever to see release. To celebrate the franchise, Diamond Select Toys are offering new products this year including 7″ scale select line, which includes Jack, Sally, and Oogie Boogie. These are available in stores now and feature some great likeness, articulation, and detail to the characters they represent.

There are two versions of each figure available through Toys “R” Us and Diamond Comic Distributions. The Toys “R” Us releases do not come with the bases, but there is an alternate head sculpt included for Jack, and Oogie Boogie is the same in both releases, but almost half the price at TRU.

Thank you to Diamond Select Toys for providing Oogie Boogie for us to review. Jack and Sally were purchased.

Availability: November 2015

Diamond Select Toys The Nightmare Before Christmas Select - Jack, Sally, and Oogie Boogie 05

 

We’re starting this off with Jack as he is the main character in the film, and lets face it, a 7″ skeleton figure is fun to talk about. Jack is sculpted with a very thin sculpt especially with his arms and legs are twigs, and each joint on these including shoulder, elbow, hip and knee are hinge-swivel jointed. This particular sample has two left hands, and we are hoping that DST sends us a right one soon, at which point we will update the gallery you see below. His hands and feet are swivel jointed, and his hands are skeletal just like his head sculpt, but his chest is a solid white and you don’t see the skeletal features. That is also how he looked in the movie, and his chest starts out thin, then buffs out a bit on top. The bat bow tie is attached to his chest, and his jacket is buttoned once at the bottom, and is tightly fitted to him.

As we stated earlier, his head sculpt is skeletal, with a big grin on his face and cut out eye holes. Jack has been offered with alternate head sculpts with different facial expressions, but DST only offers the one. Jack is painted in a white and black stripped suit, with white and black deco on his skeletal structure. The articulation is extremely fragile, and is prone to breaking easily if you are not careful. Jack especially is more of a statue, and not much an action figure that you can give your child.

Jack includes a cemetery environment, which includes a peg hole at the bottom where the stand can be put through to hold Jack into place. There are also stone pillars, stone gravestones, a gate, and some great attention to detail on the overall design of this. The base is covered in line grooves and tooling, and there is even a decoration above the gate that has a skeletal face at the center. Both Jack and Sally also include bases that the figure stands plug into.

Sally is a corpse, and she is sculpted in blue skin with stitches on her legs, arms, chest, and head. Her head sculpt includes long red hair that’s textured, large white eyes that are unrealistic, and small lips with red lipstick. Her dress is multi-colored that was stitched together and she has the ability to switch out her legs with a set that allows her to sit and lean up against her base. She has a ball jointed neck, hinged-swivel shoulders, hinge-swivel elbows, swivel wrists, swivel waist, hinged-swivel hips, hinged-swivel knees, and swivel ankles.

Sally includes a figure stand that features a modular ability to shorten or lengthen it to your liking. This is essential, as neither Jack or Sally would stand on their own without it. The stand can also be plugged into the bases and Sally’s base includes an extra peg hole for Jack’s stand to be put through.

Sally’s base is a Halloweentown environment and features a stone floor, wall, pillars, a gate, and a cat that stands at the top of the pillar. The back of the packaging shows that the cat stands on the stone floor, but in fact the peg hole does not work there. The base is also highly detailed with great sculpting and tooling.

Lastly, Oogie Boogie comes in a big, chubby, heavy, and textured sculpt and is sculpted as a sack with stitches holding him together. Underneath the sack, he is made up of worms. His face is removable and the multi colored worms are revealed. There is a lot of paint deco involved here to have that much detail. There is a seam that is used to plug the head sculpt back on and around the worms.

Oogie does not include a base, or any accessories for that matter. But given the size of him and all the great detail it took to create him more than makes up for a missing base. His articulation includes a swivel head, and ball hinged shoulders.

Overall:

Diamond Select Toys have done an incredible job on each of these figures, and we are looking forward to the second wave. It is unfortunate however that Jack’s limbs are so fragile, so make sure to pay extra attention when moving them around.

Highly Recommended.
