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 the Big Vampire from series 7. The four vampires make up 4 of the six figure packs from series 7 and 8.
Big Vampire 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 Big Vampire 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.
I love the film specific details of this Big Vampire figure. There are four vampires from Halloweentown, and they are all very different in appearance. The Big Vampire has five points of articulation: head, shoulders (2), and hands (2). For pose ability, you can move his arms in or outward.
This figure pack comes with an alternate hand holding an umbrella that vampires equip in the movie to help block the sun during the day.
The Guillotine piece that comes with this set is the wood posts and Guillotine lever as well as the basket to catch the head. 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.
Where to Buy?
The Diamond Select Toys Nightmare Before Christmas Series 7: Big Vampire Select action figure retails for $29.99.
The figures can be purchased online or at your local comic book shop:
I really love how Diamond Select Toys has been making figures of secondary characters of the citizens from Halloweentown. The Big Vampire figure pack comes with just the one character as compared to some of the other vampire figures that you will see in series 8 that comes with two. This figure does come with some Guillotine pieces that you will need to complete the diorama. If you are going for the Vampire set of four and the Guillotine then you definitely need this figure.
