Special Backstamped Nightmare Before Christmas Update!

Since the announcement of the new Nightmare Before Christmas Scene, a commonly asked question has been:

"will there be a special backstamp on the new Nightmare Before Christmas pieces like they did in previous years?"

Good News! Yes, there will be a limited number of Walt Disney Classics Collection new Nightmare Before Christmas releases offered at Disneyland® Resort launching with a fall event to be announced. Please look for information to be released regarding the event at WALT DISNEY WORLD® Resort may also offer a portion of these special backstamp pieces in the fall. The quantity will be very limited and offered only at these two Disney Theme Parks in the fall.

The special backstamp will be Jack Skellington's head along with the year of film release (pictured above). This special backstamp made its debut in 2000 with the very first releases from Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas (Jack Skellington, Sally and Zero). Since then, each release from this film was released with the special backstamp in an edition size of 600 except for last year's releases (Scary Teddy and Killer Duck). Scary Teddy and Killer Duck were not released with a special backstamp because of the very small base size of Killer Duck.

The new scene consists of Jack Skellington ("Accolades All Around"), the Corpse Child ("Ghoulish Glee"), Fountain Base ("Frightful Fountain") and Werewolf ("Howling Horror"). All releases are Open Edition except for the Werewolf, he is Limited to Production Year 2007.

Complete scene is sculpted by Patrick Romandy-Simmons and starting to arrive at Authorized WDCC Dealers this month.

Has anyone had any luck determining where these pieces will be? I have called Disneyland several times and my contact at Disney World is not aware that they are going to get them? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

As of this blog entry, I haven't received any further information regarding details on the fall event to be held at Disneyland® Resort.

Hopefully details will be available within the coming weeks.
