A skeleton in love
Jack Skellington is the skeletal hero of Mr. Jack’s Strange Christmas, the stop motion cartoon that made Tim Burton famous. The film features the town of Halloween, populated by characters each more bizarre than the last. Jack Skellington, an elegant skeleton, is the leader of the Halloween festivities, but one year Jack feels depressed without really knowing why. While walking in the woods with his dog Zero, he stumbles upon Christmas town. Everyone seems to be happy there and he decides to organize Christmas instead of Halloween thinking that it will make his melancholy disappear. But in the end, he realizes that what he was missing in his life was not Christmas but love, especially that of Sally, the little rag doll who has always been in love with him.
An even more elegant skeleton than usual
This figure is exclusive to Hot Topic stores and does not represent Jack at any specific moment of the movie. Of course, we can see Jack’s skinny and skeletal figure with his famous big smile and his long white hands, but he has changed his usual striped suit for something even more elegant. He wears grey trousers with an elegant purple jacket with nice embroidery. Over it, he wears a long black coat from which the lace of the shirt he is wearing protrudes. But the most notable element of his outfit is the large top hat he wears slightly askew on the side of his head. It is decorated with a purple cloth band, a purple stone and three large black feathers. This exclusive figurine will make a very nice addition to your Tim Burton collection.
