Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!

Again some more second hand findings. This time it is from the movie Beetlejuice which is one of my favourite Burton movies (along with Sweeney Todd and Corpse Bride).  This action figure is 7" (ca. 18cm) tall and made by NECA. His hands and head are movable and you can also turn his waist to pose the legs. It comes with two snakes and the Handbook for the Recently Deceased.
   I bought this second hand and paid 17€ for it including postage. I have been wanting a Beetlejuice figure for my collection for a long time and now I have one.

PVC Figurine Collection Set

I also got these with all the items I bought couple days ago. The seller had put these in the same box with the Sally figure so it took some time to find out what these small figures actually were. After searching these on Google I found out that these have all been in the same set. PVC Figurines Collection by JUN Planning. Set includes The Mayor, Oogie Boogie and Zero. So I actually got these for free by accident.

Roy, the Toxic Boy -squishy toy

And another one that has been forgotten. Roy, the Toxic Boy squishy toy. I bought this on eBay last spring. I don't remember the price anymore but probably it was around 25€ including shipping.  
His head is full of liquid gel and the bottom of his body is full of something similar to sand or tiny rocks.

Shock Headknocker

Since my husband is working late I have time to update this blog. So next up there are couple items that I have actually forgotten to post here earlier.
       I visited our capital city Helsinki last spring and while being there I had to quickly (yeah right!) pop in the local comicbook store The Good Fellows. I didn't find any comics that time but I bought Shock resin headknocker by NECA. I think it cost 22€ and it was mint in the box. The headknocker is 22cm tall.

Barrel Head Knocker

Okay, the last item I bought yesterday was Barrel Head knocker by NECA. It is hand painted and approximately 14cm tall. This had been removed from the box and cost me 15€.  This is actually my very first Barrel -item.

TNBC Commemorative Dinnerware

Biggest and most expensive of all my purchases today was this one - The Nightmare Before Christmas Commemorative Dinnerware. Set includes 4 plates, each with different picture on them. Material is porcelain or ceramics so they are pretty heavy. I got these for 30€.

Dr. Finkelstein

Barrel, Shock & Lock

Sally & Jack

Jack Head Magnets

Two Jack's Head fridge magnets by NECA. These have been removed from the original box but the condition is great. Material is probabaly resin, so they are made good quality. I got these as extra with all the other things I bought so in other words I got these for free.

The Nightmare Before Christmas stamper set

Next item I bought today is The Nightmare Before Christmas stamper set by NECA. Set includes Jack, Sally, Barrel, Shock and Lock. Each stamper has different colour and image.
I paid 10€ for this one.

NECA Sally Figure

Oopsie doodle! Accidentally I bought many new TNBC merchandise today. In the morning before leaving for work I happened to look around on this one Finnish gothic second hand group on FB and I saw one person selling these there. She also lived in the same city as I do so about couple hours ago I went to pick these up. I will post each item separately and here's the first one.

Sally- figure by NECA. Series 3. I already have couple other figures from this series (Vampire, Dr. Finkelstein and Harlequin Demon). I paid 15€ for this one. It was used and already removed from the original box, but in great condition and complete. The Sally figure comes with sewing machine and a sketch of Jack's Santa-outfit.

The Nightmare Before Christmas - The Film, The Art, The Vision

I have had this book on my wishlist for many years and finally about two months ago someone was selling this on (similar to eBay but only in Finland) for 6€ so I had to buy it. Seller was located in Helsinki and I couldn't go pick it up at that time but luckily I have cousin living in Helsinki who agreed to get it for me.

The book is written by Frank Thompson and it includes the story, original drawings, info and the song lyrics from the film. Below you can see pictures from the book.

The Films of Tim Burton

Few months ago I got this book about Tim Burton's movies written by Alison McMahan. Starting from Burton's early work on television to the movie Corpse Bride. This book was published in 2005 so the latest movies are missing.

Alice in Wonderland by Puffin Books

I found this paperback couple months ago at flea market for 2€. Great find since I only have one other Alice in Wonderland book and it is in finnish. This one is in english with big font so this is probably meant to be children's story book. There are also some illustrations from the movie.

Corpse Bride & Victor & Scraps by JUN Planning Co.

Ni Hao & Namaste! I'm back home from the honeymoon in India and China. Me and my husband spent almost three weeks in Asia visiting Taj Mahal and the Great Wall -  two of the seven world wonders. Anyways I will write more about the trip in my personal blog and now I am here just to show you what I got as a souvenier for myself from Beijing, China.

I did a bit of a search before departure and found out that there should be one shop that sells movie merchandise at this one mall in Beijing. Well when we found the right mall and went in I realised that there was a whole floor just for videogame/movie/anime merhandise! Althought the non-anime you could find there was mostly stuff about Walking Dead, Alien, Predator and such. Only Tim Burton figures I saw were one Jack Skellington figure and Sleepy Hollow Ichabod Crane collectible in 1/6 scale. The Sleepy Hollow figure has actually been on my wishlist for ages, but since it was expensive I left it there. But luckily in one shop I saw this, on the top self with a bit dust on - a coffin shaped box with text Tim Burton's Corpse Bride. So that was the one I took home with me and here are the pictures and details about it.

Height of the box is 55,5cm
The set includes Emily, Victor, Scraps and Emily's bouquet.

They both have clothes made of actual fabrics. Also hands and legs are movable. I haven't took them out of the box, so that is why there are plastic bands over their faces.

Charlie and The Chocolate Factory - special trading cards

There is also another post about trading cards and you can find it HERE!

These trading cards I bought from eBay couple months ago. In the earlier post you can see the basic set of Charlie and The Chocolate Factory cards and the set shown here is a bit more rare than the basic set.

I bought these holographic foil cards. It is a complete set of 9 trading cards. Other side of the card is holographic with different characters from the movie and the other side is puzzle-like.

Holographic Foil Cards

     R1    The Best Kind Of Prize is A Surprise!
     R2    There's No Knowing Where They're Going
     R3    I Eat More Candy!
     R4    I Want It Now!
     R5    Chewing Gum Is Really Gross, Chewing Gum I Hate The Most

Tim Burton's Holiday Card Set

I'm really behind with updating this blog, but since I have rest of the week off from work I have time to do my best updating my blogs.
      This was actually a birthday present (so I got this already in February) from my husband. There is two of these postcard sets on sale and I had wished for either one. The one I got is the Holiday Edition with X-massy cards, other one is Valentine's Edition with love themed postcards.

The set comes in a box with the same cover picture as The Art of Tim Burton books. There are six different illustrations, two pieces of each so 12 postcards altogether and the envelopes for every one of them. Also each of them is folded so you could write your greetings inside. As a collector I will never use these, but I still had to have them.

The Nightmare Before Christmas boardgame

I got it! It is mine, finally! 
I have been wanting this boardgame for ages and finally I bought it pretty cheap from eBay. It is used and has some tear on the box, but it has never been played with. Even the pewter figures and dices are still unopened in plastic package.

Santa Jack Skellington marionette

I have been going through old posts here replacing damaged images with new ones and adding new tags to make it easier to find interesting items and information here. While doing that I came across with the post where I had listed my The Nightmare Before Christmas statues, bobbleheads, etc. and there was a bit crappy picture of my Jack Skellington marionette. I have had it for many years and it's one of my most precious collectibles so I decided to take better pictures of it and show the details here.

Dark Shadows - The Visual Companion

About a month ago I got this really amazing Dark Shadows - The Visual Companion book. The book I first got had damage on the cover so I had to return it and wait to get a new one and that took about two weeks. Anyway now I have an undamaged version of the book and I really love it. First of all book is huge and it includes information and pictures about everything related to the movie - making ofs, costumes, scenes, characters...
