TNBC - An Animated Flip Book

The Nightmare Before Christmas - An Animated Flip Book, published by The Walt Disney Company in 1993. This is the first edition. Flipping the pages one way shows Jack cutting out a paper snowflake and flipping the other way you can see Santa Jack giving the child a present. I bought this one also via FB from another collector and paid about 7€ for this including shipping. The book is in good condition eventhough it is almost 25 years old.






Corpse Bride - An Animated Flip Book

Corpse Bride - An Animated Flip Book, make in 2005 by Warner Bros. I bought this one from another Tim Burton collector via a Facebook group. I paid about 7€ for this including shipping.
           If you flip the pages quickly you can see the Corpse Bride walking up a hill in the forest, turn the booklet around and it has info and still photos of the movie and the characters. Size of the book is quite small, 13,5cm x 8cm x 0,6cm, there are still about 50 pages.

The boardgame includes a gameboard, 12 door tiles and 54 cards (44 butten cards and 10 Oompa Loompa cards). I paid 30 euros for this one (I also got some other boardgames in the package, so the price was for all of them with shipping). The game was made by Funrise Toys.

TNBC Operation

The Nightmare Before Christmas Operation -boardgame. This is made by USAopoly in 2011. The game has "an operating table" with Oogie Boogie on it and holes around for picking plastic items out with tweezers without touching the metal sides. Oogie speaks if you fail, the lines are:

"Come on Bone Daddy!"
"I might just die laughing, buahhahaahaa"
"Now look what you have done, my bugs, my bugs, my bugs!"
"Oh I'm really scared!"
"Well, well, well what have we here"

with green lights flashing in his mouth and eyes as he talks. The game also includes play money, doctor and specialist cards 24 altogether and 12 plastic funatomy parts.

I got this as a xmas present in 2011 and I did play it once, but the game offers no challenge to adults as it is really easy to get the items out.

I bought this Edward Scissorhands postcard from London in 2012. Can't remember the shop I found this from but we bought a bunch of movie postcards at the same time, my husband got for example postcards of Jaws, Nosferatu, Taxidriver, Alien and Leatherface. I plan on decorating one wall in our bedroom with these framed postcards.


Albert from Corpse Bride

Albert -action figure from Corpse Bride. Series 2 and made by McFarlane Toys. I got this as new from eBay in around 2008-2009. This series of figures by McFarlane are quite good quality, they all fit their stands and are nicely detailed and well made. Unfortunately along the years my Albert figure has lost the other half of his moustache, maybe I will buy a new one someday. Otherwise he is in great condition. Cannot remember the price anymore but I guess it was around 20€.

Jack & Zero Pewter Lamp by NECA

Jack & Zero pewter lamp by NECA. I bought this via FB second hand group and it had been modified, the wires were removed as well as the lamp so now this only works as a statue. It is quite heavy because of the material.

Then back to the older items again. Corpse Bride soundtrack CD. I have got this for years and can't remember where I found it from, probably from eBay (once again). Nothing special about this, just a basic soundtrack with songs from the movie.

Match Girl & Stick Boy postcard

I got this Match Girl & Stick Boy postcard about a week ago, but I had to go buy the frame so I couldn't get the photo before that. This one is also from The World of Tim Burton exhibition held in Hong Kong. I still haven't been able to visit any of those exhibitions so this one is bought from eBay for 6€. I really hope that someday they will have the exhibition in some country in Europe so I would have time and money to travel there and finally see it. I'm pretty sure they will never bring it to Finland :/
