Frankenweenie sketch postcard

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.

Batman Returns soundtrack

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. Except my collection is still missing the soundtrack from Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children movie!

Sleepy Hollow trading cards

I also got the complete base set of Sleepy Hollow trading cards. Made by Inkworks in 1999 and these are official merchandice from the movie. I also got some extra chase cards, but more about those in next posts.
     The base set includes 72 basic movie still cards, 9 character cards, 8 final cut (behind the scenes) cards and one checklist card, so altogether 90 cards in the base set.

The trading cards have been available in packages like the one below. I have bought it some years ago for couple of euros. Every package includes 8 trading cards.

The Headless Horseman action figure

The Headless Horseman action figure. Manufactured by McFarlane Toys in 1999. Bought this together with the other Headless Horseman figure, now I have the complete set!
     The Horseman comes with an axe, severed heads and you can also change Horseman's head to a skull. His limbs are poseable and you can place the axe and the head in his hands. I got this mint in the box but since the plastic package was ugly yellow I removed the it from the box.

The Headless Horseman Deluxe Box Set

It is finally mine! The Headless Horseman Deluxe Box Set. Manufactured by McFarlane in 1999. Set has three pieces - the horseman, horse and the tree. I bought this from eBay with the other Headless Horseman figure and the complete trading card set for 65€ altogether and including shipping. Great bargain!
     The figure is very nicely detailed, has moving parts and you can also pose the horse in different ways and turn it's head. Item arrived to me unboxed but in like new condition.

Scratch and Sniff trading card: Peppermint

This is one of the more rare "scratch and sniff" cards. It is a normal sized trading card in plastic cover. The one I got has a picture of Willy Wonka on it and the smell is supposed to be peppermint, of course I haven't scratched it because it would ruin the card.

Here's a list of all these box-topper cards available:

BT1    Scratch & Sniff Bubblegum
BT2    Scratch & Sniff Marshmallow
BT3    Scratch & Sniff Peppermint (the one I got)

Zombie Gentlemen snowglobe which I got as a birthday present from a friend back in 2010 or 2011. Made by McFarlane Toys in 2006. The globe has three zombie gentlemen inside and dancing skeletons musicians pictured around the base.

TNBC poster book

I found this on eBay and it arrived today! The Nightmare Before Christmas poster book published in 1993. This one is in mint condition, it has been sold for $1,95 back then, but I had to pay about 10€ for it including shipping. The poster book is more like a booklet with only few pages. It has three different posters, some photos from the movie, introductions of the main characters, article from the "newspaper" about Santa gone missing, short bio of Tim Burton, behind the scenes photos as well as expaining of the stop-motion process by Henry Selick. One thing that pops out is that some of the names are mispelled in this book. For example HalloweenLAND, Henry SelEck and Dr. FinkLEstein.

Planet of the Apes soundtrack

I have bought this Planet of the Apes soundtrack many years ago from eBay. I think I should watch this movie again sometime, because this has always been my least favourite Burton movie so maybe watching it again would change my mind or at least I wouldn't dislike the movie so much.

Vincent postcard

So here's the other postcard I got from Hong Kong. I saw this and I had to get it because I LOVE the Vincent animation and the story. It is my all time favourite from Tim Burton.
      Once I even watched the short film so many times that I actually remembered the poem in my sleep from word to word!

The Oyster Boy postcard

I bought these two postcards via eBay from Hong Kong couple of weeks ago. These were sold at The World of Tim Burton Exhibition and someone was selling these on eBay so I had to get them since the exhibition will most likely never happen in Finland. The story of Oyster Boy is one of my favourites and I love these grayscale drawings by Tim Burton.
      I also bought a postcard with a drawing of Vincent, that will be in the following post. I'm going to put these both on the wall and I actually have to reveal that I already bought two more of these postcards, but I won't tell what they are before they arrive!
