My build combines several areas of Halloween town from the 1993 Tim Burton film 'The Nightmare Before Christmas'. Taking centre stage is the house of Jack Skellington - the main character. On the right is the gothic Town Square complete with fountain, With Spiral Hill, set within the town's graveyard to the left.

The build was originally built for my wife as she is a huge Jack Skellington fan and was combined with a 2-week build challenge on a social media group. It contains 6 mini-figures: Jack & Sally, Doctor Finklestein, The Trick or Treaters - Lock, Shock & Barrel, and a spooky hanging skeleton. They are all joined by Zero, Jack's own ghost dog.

Lego have in the past released Brickheadz and Collectible mini-figures of the main characters but have yet to release a full playset. The movie combining two favourite times of year is so well known and loved by all ages. Adults who watched it over 25 years ago are now watching it with their own children - myself included!

This cross-generation appeal of such a unique movie deserves to have its own set immortalised in Lego.
