MWCToys.com back in 2010 and convincing my wife that we needed to drive out to Target that night and hunt these down. We had success and picked up the whole set! Oh the crazy things we did when we were younger and didn't have a child! Of course, now my little one loves Halloween and the Nightmare Before Christmas, so she goes along on the hunt with me! You could say that she's the Lock, Shock, and Barrel to my Oogie Boogie! Speaking of the big, bad Boogie man, let's check this guy out after the break...
Height: 3 1/4 inches
Accessories: Removable back
Original Year of Release: 2010
Original Non-Scalper Price: $4 dollars
* This is a great rendition of Oogie Boogie. Jun Planning was one of the first (if not the first) companies to realize that The Nightmare Before Christmas was popular among older fans and collectors and they've had a long history of releasing quality sculpts of the characters. Plus, they'll all so darn toyetic! Oogie looks perfect with a sly expression, hollow eyes, and some great arm positioning. You can almost hear Ken Page belting out Oogie's signature tunes when you look at him!
* The color looks excellent, too. There is an excellent burlap like texture and lots of shading to give the character a very life-like appearance.
* Oogie Boogie has a spooky yellow and black snake slithering out of his mouth. It's a great little detail and looks fantastic. The paintwork is definitely on point for something so small.
* The work on the stitching on Oogie Boogie's body is pretty cool, too. Remember that this guy was built from eight different pieces, so the great work on the stitching makes the seams in the figure look more impressive.
* One of the most unusual aspects of this figure is that you can remove Oogie Boogie's back and see all of the creepy, crawly bugs slithering around inside of him. The paintwork helps to add to the atmosphere of this near little extra.
I've reviewed two other Oogie Boogie figures: The Diamond Select Oogie Boogie (Toys 'R Us Edition) figure and the ReAction Oogie Boogie.
