Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!

The Beetlejuice Minimates Box Set is based on the classic 1988 Beetlejuce film, and brings four characters from the film including Beetlejuice, Lydia, Adam and Barbara Maitland. These figures include interchange parts and accessories inspired from the film, which include alternate head sculpts, hands, and arms.

 

 

The Beetlejuice minimate is inspired by the likeness of Actor Michael Keaton, portraying one of most iconic roles. The figure is painted in a black and white stripe deco, with a jacket placed over the torso. The chest has a black tie painted on. There are alternate pieces including interchangeable arms with mallets for hands, and a carnival hat that replaces the green hair piece. The sides of the carnival hat have bat wings for ears. The hat has the black and white stripes, with yellow deco on the parts with sculpted texture. The mallets have yellow deco on the flat parts, and red stripes on the sides. The facial details and paint applications are excellent, which includes black deco around the eyes, and some green deco on the side of his mouth.

 

Lydia is sculpted in her black dress, with the skirt as a separate piece placed over the hips and legs. The black dress includes wide sleeves, and there is a necklace painted on the chest, along with lines indicating wrinkles. The facial details are good, and there is some orange deco around the eyes. The hair piece stands tall on top, and hangs long around the back. This piece also has the ears attached on the sides.

 

 

Besides Beetlejuice, Adam and Barbara Maitland are the other best sculpted figures in the set. This is mostly due to the fact that they also have alternate parts and accessories that can be used to give them the frightening ghostly appearance as they attempt to scare the humans away in their house.

Adam is painted in a white and black plaid shirt, with a brown belt tan pants, and brown shoes. His facial details include his glasses. The interchangeable parts include his stretched out face to make himself look scary. This includes the stretched out nose that hangs downward and is pointy, stretched out eye sockets, a rooster hair style, teeth that are stretched apart, and interchangeable hands that are holding his eye balls.

Barbara is painted in her white and red dress that has some great detailed deco and looks like it did in the film. The skirt is a separate piece that is placed over the hips and legs. Her facial details look good, but what really makes this figure look better is the interchangeable head sculpt. This piece replaced the previous head and hair, and includes a wide open mouth with two eye balls at the center of it, which are located just above the tongue. The head is stretched out a bit around the sides and top to allow her mouth to appear this way, which was also shown in the film. The hair is attached to this head sculpt, and hands down the back, with some on top.

Each figure in this set includes an acrylic figure stand.

Overall, these Beetlejuice Minimates are excellent and these are truly long overdue for the line. Fans of the film will love these figures, and these have some of the best attention to detail and alternate parts we’ve seen in the Minimates line this year.
