Get in the Halloween spirit with this LEGO The Nightmare Before Christmas build

It’s the spookiest time of the year, and one LEGO builder is celebrating with an astonishing The Nightmare Before Christmas build.

If you’re not feeling Halloween this year – and given current circumstances, that’s entirely understandable – redditor TheDarkonaut might be able to help. Their incredible tribute to Tim Burton’s cult dark fantasy film is enough to get anyone in the Halloween spirit.

The enormous model depicts Jack Skellington’s gravity-defying house from the 1993 movie. The Jack Skellington and Sally minifigures from 71024 Disney Series 2 stand front and centre, but they’re really just the finishing touch on this towering LEGO creation.

According to TheDarkonaut, no Kragle was required for their build to stay upright. Instead, it’s supported by a Technic beam that sits at the centre of the four different sections that comprise the model.

Jack Skellington’s house is the crowning achievement in the talented builder’s Halloween display, which also incorporates some of the LEGO Group’s own spooky sets. Among the mix are LEGO Creator Expert 10273 Haunted House, LEGO Harry Potter 75947 Hagrid’s Hut: Buckbeak’s Rescue, and half of LEGO Stranger Things 75810 The Upside Down.

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.
