Match Girl & Stick Boy postcard

I got this Match Girl & Stick Boy postcard about a week ago, but I had to go buy the frame so I couldn't get the photo before that. This one is also from The World of Tim Burton exhibition held in Hong Kong. I still haven't been able to visit any of those exhibitions so this one is bought from eBay for 6€. I really hope that someday they will have the exhibition in some country in Europe so I would have time and money to travel there and finally see it. I'm pretty sure they will never bring it to Finland :/

Edward Scissorhands soundtrack

Edward Scissorhands soundtrack CD. I can't recall where I have gotten this or when.


Oogie Boogie pin

Today I also got Oogie Boogie pin. I found it on eBay for 2€ so had to get it. On the back it says Authentic Official 2010 Disney but I wouldn't be too sure about the authenticity since I got it so cheap from China. It was much bigger than I expected though, 4,5cm from top to bottom.


TNBC Novel

Yay, mail day today! I finally received The Nightmare Before Christmas novel paperback. This one is published in 1994 by Puffin Books. It has the story and some still photos from the movie. I got this for 5€ from eBay.

Jack Skellington -pocket watch

I actually care about these cheap, made in China, let's put Jack Skellington's face on this one -items, but since this cost only about 2€ I decided to buy it. A coffin shaped pocket watch with Jack Skellington on it. Inside there is a photo on Jack holding his severed head. The colour is bronze and the watch is actually made of some sort of metal. You can also use it as a necklace.



Corpse Bride DVD Box Set

Corpse Bride DVD box set arrived today! The set includes the basic DVD, The Illustrated Story -book and a set of postcards. I got this set for about 5 euros.


Corpse Bride - The Illustrated Story is a good quality paperback published by Newmarket Press in 2005. Text by Mark Salisbury.



There are also 8 postcards which are slightly bigger than normal postcard size. I really love these because the photos are not the most used ones from the movie. For example there is postcard of Scraps hiding under Elder Gutknecht's books.

Blue Girl with Wine -postcard

And the last item of this week is Blue Girl with Wine -postcard. This painting by Tim Burton is my absolute favourite, it is just so beautiful. Also this came from Hong Kong for about 5 euros.

The last of it's kind. -postcard also came this week from Hong Kong.


The Green Man -postcard

I also got some postcards again this week. This one is The Green Man. I paid about 5€ for this postcard. I framed it and I'll hang it on the wall next to other ones.


James and the Giant Peach - Activity Book

Earlier this week I also got some smaller mail straight to my mailbox. James and the Giant Peach - Activity Book, a paperback published by Puffin Books in 1996. The cover is from the movie, but all illustrations inside are by Quentin Blake. The book has all kinds of tasks and activities. I got this for 5€ from eBay.


Jack Skellington in Lavender Coffin

Yesterday I picked this up from the post-office and I'm so happy to have it in my collection! Jack Skellington collection doll in lavender purple coffin N-125 by JUN Planning. I found this from eBay by chance and got it for about 38€ because the seller had not mentioned TNBC at all in the item description.
      The Jack Skellington doll in this coffin box has hic mouth open with quite neutral expression on his face. He has the classic black and white outfit on (actual fabric) with no extra accessories. His limbs are poseable. The box I got has been on a display in direct sunlight for some time because the front cover is light pink and the interior lavender purple as the whole box should be, you can see the difference in the photos below. The box is about 43cm tall and the Jack himself 40cm tall.

TNBC Manga

Bought this from huuto.net many years ago. I think I paid about 5€ for this. The Nightmare Before Christmas manga book, published by Disney Press in 2005. First there are introductions of the main characters. The book is drawn in japanese manga style and have to be read "backwards". This is the only manga book I have ever owned and probably the only one I ever will own, I'm not a big fan of manga.

There are 45 cards in the base set and there are also gold foil cards available that are more rare. I have to start hunting those gold cards! The cards were made in Japan and there has been only 200 boxes for sale in the USA, so these are somewhat rare and I didn't get mine for free either. I paid about 15€ for this basic set.

I got also this in the same package as the Red Queen postcard. Frankenweenie sketch postcard from The World of Tim Burton exhibition in Hong Kong.


Red Queen Sketch postcard

Few days ago I also got second set of postcards from The World of Tim Burton exhibition held in Hong Kong. I found a seller from eBay who had several of these postcards for sale and I already got two (Vincent and The Oyster Boy) cards about a week ago. So this time I got also two cards of which one was The Red Queen sketch by Tim Burton. Postcard arrived to me as new, sealed in package but I opened it to frame it and hang it on the wall.

Now I think I have soundtrack CDs from every Tim Burton movie. Batman Returns soundtrack CD was the last one missing from my collection and now I finally found it via Discogs from a Swedish seller. I got it for 9€ including shipping. This arrived couple days ago, but didn't have time to update here immediately. I still have some CDs to update here, but I have had them already in my collection for sometime.
