We’ve barely had time to open our Funko Disney Mystery Minis (well, some of us at least) and word of a Game of Thrones series just hit the street last week, now this! Yet ANOTHER fantastically fun blind box announcement from our friends at Funko has hit the web and it’s none other than The Nightmare Before Christmas!
I know that there is a HUGE following for Nightmare Before Christmas collectibles (see below for more on this), so this series is going to perform very well. Details on this release are pretty much limited to a single picture and some pre-order listings on retail sites, but rest assured we will be watching and reporting whatever information we can find about this blind box offering from our friends at Funko.
Tim Burton’s hit animated film The Nightmare Before Christmas gets stylized and miniaturized! The Nightmare Before Christmas Mystery Minis Display Box features all of your favorite characters from the film as 2 1/2-inch tall stylized vinyl mini-figures. You’ll get Jack Skellington, Sally, Oogie Boogie, the Mayor, and so many more!
