More Views & Angles for Upcoming Nightmare Releases!

A much anticipated piece for Fourth Quarter 2008, is the "All Hail the Pumpkin King!" sculpture featuring Jack Skellington (rarely seen as the Pumpkin King) and the Behemoth. A Numbered Limited Edition (NLE) of 500 sculpted by Ruben Procopio.

This amazing sculpture will be launching at the Disney Theme Parks with an event in the fall celebrating the 15th Anniversary of the film. A portion of the edition size will then be made available after that event through select Authorized Walt Disney Classics Collection Dealers in a very limited supply.

Added today are close-up views of Jack, the Behemoth and the Bridge. To view additional angles and images (unpainted prototype) plus early concept drawings, check out Ruben's Blog!

As part of the Third Quarter 2008 announcement, collectors were treated to more from Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas with 3 new additions to the Fountain Scene released in 2007. Added were the Mummy Boy and Witches. The witches are sold as a boxed set. Both releases, sculpted by Patrick Romandy-Simmons are Limited to Production Year 2008. Added today were back views of the Mummy Boy and Tall Witch plus an additional angle of the Small Witch.

So I wonder if the Mummy and the Witches will bear the special backstamp of Jacks head for the first 650 pieces again and if so where will they be available? Any ideas Duckman? Have you heard anything?

Hi Geoffrey,

Great question! Hadn't heard anything, so made an inquiry and found out the following:

The special backstamp with the Jack Skellington icon is on the Jack and Behemoth 15th Anniversary sculpture (all pieces in the edition of 500 feature the icon).

The Witches and the Mummy Boy do not feature the icon.

Thanks so much for checking, appreciate it!

Just got the mummy boy and witches. Fantastic. The mummy boy is a perfect companion for the corpse child. The witches I thought were a little expensive, but after getting them, they are worth it. Bigger than I thought. The engineering of the pieces also must add to the price. Well worth it.

Jeff,

Thanks for the review on both the Mummy Boy and Witches. Greatly appreciated. I know those collectors who have to rely on images and the Internet, appreciate collector feedback.
