THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS has an enormous fan base, and
it’s become one of the most iconic movies of our time, thanks to a ton in the
way of merchandise. The latest, these new bookends from toy and collectible
company NECA, offer you the chance to decorate your bookshelf with a couple of
nice pieces of art from the movie featuring the characters Jack Skellington and
Both of the bookends are created from a plastic resin that
is carefully painted to show some amazing detail in either scene. Jack
Skellington is seen standing behind a gravestone holding a rose, while Sally is
sitting upon a mound and holding a cat in her lap. The bookends measure
approximately 5 1/2-inches tall x 4 3/4-inches wide x 3 1/2-inches long.
I would’ve liked to seen the bookends available during the
month of October rather than November, so you could have used them for both
Halloween and Christmas decorations. The real problem with this set—as seems to
be the problem with most NECA bookends—however, is how the bookends don’t look
as good from the side view. A good set of bookends should look good from any
angle and be effective at holding books upright. They’re also a bit expensive
with most places charging around $50 for the disappointing set. The NIGHTMARE
BEFORE CHRISTMAS bookends will only be useful to people wishing to use them as
decorative plates rather than their desired purpose.
