Could a LEGO The Nightmare Before Christmas set be in our future?

A LEGO Ideas project based on The Nightmare Before Christmas has cracked 10K, meaning we could one day see a minifigure-scale LEGO set inspired by the classic Tim Burton movie.

We’ve already had minifigures of its two protagonists, Jack Skellington and Sally, through Collectible Minifigures 71024 Disney Series 2, and a BrickHeadz set that includes both characters in statuette form.

Simon Scott’s The Nightmare Before Christmas – Halloween Town project mixes things up, however, by proposing a minifigure-scale slice of the film’s moody setting, combining Jack’s house with Spiral Hill and a section of the Town Plaza.

The build uses approximately 1,300 pieces and contains six minifigures, and was originally built for Scott’s wife. “The movie combining two favourite times of year is so well known and loved by all ages,” the builder explains on his project’s page.

“Adults who watched it over 25 years ago are now watching it with their own children – myself included! This cross-generation [sic] appeal of such a unique movie deserves to have its own set immortalised in LEGO.”

Scott’s project will now advance to the review stage, becoming the 24th project in the first 2021 review. We’ve still got three months to go in this qualifying window, so it already seems inevitable that it will smash the previous record of 35 projects in a single review.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
