CHICAGO — What’s this? What’s this? It’s a new LEGO set that’s sure to delight any “Nightmare Before Christmas” fan.
Jack Skellington stans, you’re in for a treat — the iconic Town Square from the beloved 1993 Disney movie is finally being turned into a LEGO set complete with Sandy Claws and some of the rambunctious characters of the movie.
The set was designed by Simon Scott, who goes my Tvrulesmylife on the LEGO Ideas page, and features many familiar locations and residents of Halloween Town.
The set will contain approximately 2,000 pieces and these eight minifigures:
- Jack Skellington
- Sally Stitches
- Dr. Finkelstein
- Jack as Sandy Claws
Hundreds of people head to LEGO’s Idea site to pitch their ideas for review. Once an idea gets 10,000 supporters, the LEGO Review Board reviews it and if approved, it gets turned into an actual toy set. This was Scott’s second time reaching 10,000 supporters for the set, but the first time the idea was chosen.
“We’re very excited to release Tvrulesmylife’s The Nightmare Before Christmas project as our next LEGO Ideas set!” the company said.
The set includes many well-known locations such as Jack Skellington’s house, the Town Square, Spiral Hill and Zero’s graveyard. My favorite part of the set is Sandy Claws and his skeleton reindeer on top of the Town Hall.
The price and release date have yet to be announced. Here’s hoping the final set includes Oogie Boogie.
Last summer, the “Hocus Pocus” house was approved as a set. A release date for the Sanderson Sister’s house has also not yet been released.
