Pros

  • Authentic Looking
  • Authentic Voice
  • Great Proportions
  • Some of the Best Animation

Cons

  • Cheap Shoes
  • Poor Motion Detection

Best Uses

  • Display
  • Just For Fun

The Good:
The price is reasonable considering the licensing fees that Disney charges, not to mention the option to use a 20-25% off coupon that Spirit shamelessly (and wonderfully) pushes on its customers.
The animation is some of the best I have seen in these types of props. The Christmas phrases don't bother me, the IP literally comes from a movie called The Nightmare Before Christmas. A simple display of a Santa Claus wrapped up with Christmas lights stemming from Jack's hand, and a dysfunctional Christmas theme in the background would be a great Halloween display.
With that in mind, it can double as a Christmas prop. A custom Santa suit for Jack with a few elves, and I'm good to go!
Jack is also a good size, and feels "present" in the room when set up.

The Bad:
I understand whenever you budget for a product you must spend the money where it counts, and save where you can. Here the $ is spent on functional design and possibly licensing. The area that got the least funds: the shoes. These are the same durability of disposable plastic cups. It can and will easily crack if you are not careful. I see this prop as a collectible as much as a display piece, so avoid using the shoes is something I would need to consider.
The biggest offender of what I dislike about this prop is THE MOTION SENSOR WORKS ONLY AT CLOSE RANGE REGARDLESS OF HOW WELL THE ROOM IS LIT. Why was the sensor attached to his pants? The weight of it causes the sensor to look down as it pulls on the fabric. Even if you tape it to point up, the sensor is also hidden behind Jack's animated hand. This interferes with the props main function, a big oversight
The servos in his arm are a bit loud along with the clanking of his mouth whenever he speaks, but this isnt a big deal.
The clothes were a bit difficult to get on to the point where I feared breaking the prop. However the snug tailored fit is true to the character

Over all, nit-pickiness aside this prop is one of the best. It has a gr8 "wow" factor!

    I myself am I huge fan of the entire nightmare before Christmas franchise so when I saw this product I knew I had to have it. When I had gotten it I noticed the clothing on him was poorly well made his jacket is so tight fitting I was afraid it was going to rip when I was trying to put it on him his shoes were made from a cheap plastic that would keep a Barbie doll in its place the hands however are painted very well but the outfit it's self is very challenging to put on and is portly made for the money you pay the materials should be better and not only that HE ONLY SAYS CHRISTMAS SENTENCES!!!!! you had the WHOLE MOVIE AND THEY COULD ONLY PUT CHRISTMAS SAYING now if they sold him in a Christmas store I wouldn't be so angered but the fact that he was sold in a Halloween store and only says Christmas sayings definitely made me mad he could be so much better if o it he was made better and had better sayings overall I was so disappointed but now I have a great Christmas decoration

      We just got our Jack Skellington and I love him! It was pretty easy assembly despite the instructions being a little bit off. Also as another reviewer said we had to move the connection for his right hand so it wasn't facing the wrong way, but that was super easy. I also wish he said more Halloween phrases than Christmas ones, but they ARE Jack quotes straight from the movie, so you can't really complain about that too much. Just keep him up for both holidays. :) I'm interested to see if he holds up outside though as his power cord is definitely an indoor cord. We might just put him out for Halloween night and keep him inside the rest of the time.

      This prop is amazing! He's super awesome and has a lot of great motion! Almost professional looking! His price could be better, but with a coupon it wouldn't really be that bad. he's really tall, I'm not sure exactly how tall, but he's giant! really good quality too! and he looks like he just came out of the movie! he's super amazing and I would highly recommend him!

        Jack is one outstanding and very impressive animatronic! I will start with the animations. Jack has a total of four different movements at once, which are mouth movement, arm raising/lowering, wrist flexing, and finger curling. All of these animations look just like they would in The Nightmare Before Christmas, making that aspect very movie-accurate. The animation in the arm and hand is very unique as well, unlike animations in any animatronics released prior. All of the movements are very smooth, as well. Next, the overall appearance. Jack's pinstripe suit looks very professional and accurate to his suit in the movie. The shoes are nothing special, but go well with the suit. His hands are very well detailed, and his head looks just like it does in the movie. His bowtie could have more dimension to it rather than just being made of cloth and wire, but it still works well with the prop. Finally, the quality of the prop. The base and frame are made of metal and both are very secure. He wobbles a little bit when activated, but he is nowhere close to falling over. The suit and trousers are made of a smooth, thin fabric and could potentially be damaged, but not if you take good care of the prop. The shoes are a very thin plastic, and extra care should be taken to make sure they do not crack. The head, hands, and chest are all a very durable plastic, and I have no worries about any of those parts breaking. The arms are made of wire and foam, which is fine since they will be covered by the clothing. Overall, despite a few minor cons, I would highly recommend this animatronic to any collectors or Nightmare Before Christmas fans.

          LOVE this Jack! He is so very awesome!!! He was easy to put together, looks very substantial and works perfectly. I may leave him off for our annual Halloween party, but only because most of his sayings involve Christmas, which may be a shame because he's just so cool to watch with his fluid hand movements and mouth movements. At first, his mouth would make the occasional plastic snapping sound when it came together, but we just added a strip of black foam along his mouth line and he is completely silent now. I would recommend him to any Nightmare Before Christmas fan!!!

          Visually, Jack looks great. But I agree with other reviewers that the multiple Christmas sayings don't make sense for a Halloween item. I'd rather Gemmy reuse the body and put out another version of Santa Claus Jack dressed in Christmas garb to use with those phrases. I also have issues with the clothing. The shoes are a real thin plastic and both arrived cracked before I even pulled them out of the box. The seams have also started to split on his pants since I could barely get his pants around his waist and the support straps over his shoulders without ripping the fabric. They seem to be made too narrow for his body. Other than those issues (and his one static hand), I'm happy to own such a full-size, film accurate animatronic. Just disappointed in the quality a little for such a high cost.

              We all know the pros already lol. Fill that in yourself here. The issues with mine were that the static arm/hand, his right, was facing outward to his right which is physically imposible if he were real. I grabbed and twisted it inward and up more, as well as fixing his arm to not be bent to his chest. I had issues getting his pants on forward for some reason but I worked passed it. His jacket was very hard to put on over anthing and everything. It doesnt stretch. I got part of one arm on but then couldn't reach the other that was bent toward it. I really had to force things. I was scared of breaking him but it turned out ok and could handle being forced. It looks and feels so incredibly fragile to assemble and move around, but it seems to be able to take what you dish out. His sayings were mainly CHRISTMAS RELATED. Like, I guess a good half of them. The saying also reply, so if times right, if a kid sked him something he COULD ALMOST seem like he was relying directly. It's cute. I am still glad I own him. I WISH there was a matching Sally animatronic! I do recommend Jack.

              Love Jack but the battery box for the motion / sound activation didn't have the components to connect the batteries, everything was missing, the batteries would have just sat in it. The only way we can have Jack talk is with the step pad. Was going to return Jack but per the return policy i would have had to go online to buy another one, pay the additional shipping cost (that would not be refunded),and pay to ship it back. Plus I used a coupon to get some money off so i would have to pay the full price just to get a new one.

                Only one arm and hand is animated. This is not a problem but it would be nice if both hands and arms moved. It also has some more Christmas related quotes from when Jack was talking to Santa Clause in the movie. The mount for the static hand on mine was mounted backwards so the hand faced away from the body. It was an easy fix for me to remove a screw, turn the mount around, and reinstall the screw. I am a "Home Haunter" and I set up an elaborate display in my yard each year. We are big Nightmare Before Christmas fans so this was a must have.
