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.

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.
