Toy Collection 4: The Nightmare Before Christmas

Greetings, lovelies! I was listening to the Nerdist podcast the other day. The guy who hosts collects things like I do, only his stuff sounds WAY better. He said that his collection was like a diary of things he loves. That’s exactly what mine is!

Today we have the Nightmare Before Christmas – um – group? Subcollection?

The first time I saw The Nightmare Before Christmas, I didn’t like it. When I went to see it in the theater, I didn’t know it was a musical before I went, so I was annoyed. Of course, later I saw it again and was able to appreciate it for the piece of genius it is.

So, left to right, starting in the back, we have stuffed Zero, VHS of the movie, big Jack, which should have arms but doesn’t. I have no idea where they went. Next row from left to right, we have non-stuffed Zero, smaller Jack, Oogie Boogie, Sally, Doctor Finklestein. Then there’s Lock, Shock and Barrel but not in that order, and tiny Christmas Jack with Christmas tree.

I think the next collection post might be Batman.

Buying presents for me

Really just the one present, but I am really excited. I collect TV and movie…um, toys? knick knacks? Gimcrack? Gewgaws?

Yeah. I actually wanted to post some pictures, but the shelves were dusty, and I was too lazy to dust them. I also didn’t want the whole wide internet to see my dust.

Anyway, I got a new gewgaw. It’s Doctor Finklestein from Nightmare Before Christmas! Here’s a picture.

The arm in his hand is actually more of a blue color, probably because it’s Sally’s. He also plays the audio of a snippet of a scene from the movie with surprisingly good quality sound.

He won’t be hanging on the tree. He’s on the shelf with the other figurines and my VHS copy of the movie. I didn’t have this guy before. I have a few Jacks, a Sally, Lock, Shock, and Barrel, Oogie Bookie, a stuffed Zero, and a figurine Zero. I think that’s it.

Someday when I dust, I’ll post more of the collection. I own way more toys than any 39-year-old should.
