650. The Nightmare Before Christmas full-size sled (only 2 made). (Buena Vista, 1993) This is one of only two existing screen-used “Jack Skellington” sleighs from The Nightmare before Christmas. The masterfully designed and constructed miniature consists of metal sled-runners, wood substructure, a resin coffin-cabin, aluminum rod reinforcement and large aluminum trash can caboose. In the movie, Jack takes over Christmas and “Sandy Claws” duties and flies this sleigh (drawn by skeleton reindeer) to deliver creepy presents to freaked out kids everywhere. The 39 in. x 15.5 in. model is painted in great detail. There are aluminum hitching brackets on the back of the model and mounting rods running the length of the coffin. The two-part lid of the coffin can be closed, but is static not hinged for animation. The model exhibits signs of production wear, but is intact, in very good condition and a highly impressive and recognizable piece from this beloved Tim Burton film. Special shipping arrangements will apply.
