Tim Burton’s design for The Nightmare Before Christmas is as iconic as the film itself. Everywhere you look in the film there’s things so wonderfully off kilter they defy logic but draw you in. It’s so charming your brain just automatically forgives any gap in reality. Builder monstrophonic captures this aesthetic perfectly with this rendition of Jack Skellington’s house, and the same rules apply here.
The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of the most unique films ever made. Whimsical in it's design, original in it's concept, groundbreaking in it's animation and showstopping in it's music. Jack's house is one of the wonderful designs in the film, and this version by monstrophonic captures it perfectly.
The Nightmare Before Christmas is such an amazing piece of cinematic history. The quirky design, the unforgettable music, the phenomenal stop-motion animation. It's really no wonder it's such a fan favorite. Those quirky designs make for some serious build challenges to those endeavoring to recreate them in LEGO, but as you can see, with some mad skills like J.B.F, it can be done.
The Nightmare Before Christmas is now considered a classic, and a yearly tradition that lasts the entire last part of every year since it spans Halloween to Christmas. I remember seeing the film in the theater, back when Disney had no confidence in it, and we were absolutely blown away with every aspect of it. I am similarly blown away with this MOC by Cesbrick. I must admit when I first saw it, I didn't think it was LEGO, or at least Jack wasn't, but he is. Every aspect of this is spooky good!
I'm proud to say I saw The Nightmare Before Christmas in the theater. We had little idea what we were in for, Disney didn't have much confidence in the project (so much so they released it under the Touchstone banner) and wasn't throwing it's usual advertising blitz at the world. We were blown away to say the least. It was some time before Disney really picked up on what a truly unique and absolute classic it was, and it's popularity has only grown since, as evidenced by this inspired build by builder HCK_1974. Not bad for a little movie that was "too scary for kids, too silly for adults".
Here at BrickNerd we like to look back from time to time, and to holiday worlds of old. This is some fantastic work by builder RedRoofArt. I am perhaps a bit biased, since I'm a huge Nightmare Before Christmas, Tim Burton, Disney and LEGO fan, so there was pretty much no way I was gonna not like this. It's technically MOCstalgia, since it was built in 2013/14, but these are new pictures of this phenomenal MOC. Click through for more views, it's worth it.
