A holiday movie has to be pretty solid to be able to be memorable and become a classic. In 1993, The Nightmare Before Christmas successfully nailed two holidays to become one of the most beloved Halloween and Christmas movies of all time. With great movies comes great toys and collectibles.
This week we will be focusing on Nightmare Before Christmas Select action figures from our friends at Diamond Select Toys. They recently released series 7 and 8 of their Nightmare Before Christmas Select action figures. Each pack contains a diorama piece. When you put the diorama pieces together from all six packs in these series, you will have a Halloweentown Guillotine set piece from the movie to display with your figures. Thanks Diamond Select Toys for sending us these fantastic figures to showcase on the blog!
For each blog, we will focus on one of the figure packs in full detail from Diamond Select Toys Nightmare Before Christmas series 7 and 8. Today’s blog will be Snowman Jack from series 7.
There have been a few Jack Skellington action figures released in previous series from Diamond Select Toys. This time we are treated to Snowman Jack from the scene when Jack Skellington arrives in Christmastown, and he sees his first snowman.
Jack uses the snowman as a disguise to get a closer look at all of the splendor and majesty of Christmastown.
Jack is only in his snowman disguise for a few moments of the film, but it is during one of the many great songs of the film, “What’s This?”
Snowman Jack comes in a window package which displays the figure, accessories, and a Halloweentown Guillotine piece. The window packaging leaves the option of displaying this figure in box if you are an in box action figure collector.
The box side view shows a glam shot of the Snowman Jack figure.
The back of the box shows the other figures that are included in Series 7 as well as what the Halloweentown Guillotine will look like when it is assembled.
The Snowman Jack figure looks film accurate. Jack has six points of articulation: head, arms (2), hands (2), top snowball. For pose ability, you can move his arms up and down and have him wave. His head has great movement.
This figure pack comes with a few accessories to help recreate the scene from Christmastown in The Nightmare Before Christmas.
The alternate snowman head sculpt and twig arms can be swapped out with the Jack Skellington figure pieces to build the Christmastown snowman. The Christmastown umbrella completes the look. A penguin is included to add to your display.
The regular Christmastown Snowman would look great displayed paired up with one of the previous Jack Skellington action figure releases from Diamond Select Toys.
The Guillotine piece that comes with this set is the blade portion. The Guillotine diorama build is a great bonus for those who purchase all of series 7 and 8. We will take a look at the complete build in our final blog for this series.

This figure is great for fans of the Nightmare Before Christmas film or fans of Halloween or Christmas. Who doesn’t like Halloween or Christmas? I really like the accessories that come with this figure as they really add to the display. Everything is extremely movie accurate. Confession: I did sing the song What’s This? while photographing this figure. This is an easy recommend for your holiday figure displays or Nightmare Before Christmas collections. I can’t wait to see what all of the Nightmare Before Christmas Select figures look like when displayed all together.
