    Had an issue with with my first purchase because jacks head arrived scratched but spirits customer service was excellent and I got a replacement right away! Only bad thing is that second package didn't come with instructions but luckily it was easy enough to put together I didn't need it. He looks amazing and managed to get a good deal on Black Friday. So happy!

      It is no lie this prop is a show stopper. I had him out in my yard on Halloween night by the walkway, and many people stopped to take pictures of or with him. Overall Jack is an amazing animatronic. He has great movement and is a prop that will last you many years to come. Though he is at a high price, your definitely getting what you paid for. This is one of, if not, the best prop Spirit has had in years. At the time im writing this I ordered the hanging zero to go with him. I hope in the future we could see a lifesize animated Sally to go with Jack.

          I got this on sale at of the Spirit locations only to find out that the hand doesn't close all the way, the arm moves but the hand doesn't close like it should. Contacted the manufacturer regarding it and said the the extremely limited warranty isn't valid since I got it on clearance and not full price. The only option is to send the whole thing to them at my cost and they MAY fix it.

            One of my favorites for 2017 props! As soon as I saw Nightmare Before Christmas, I knew I needed him. As soon as I took him out, I was pleased with what I saw. He did have a tricky set up, but he seems to have decent quality, made with materials that would seem to last. When I tested him, he was amazing! He has 12 exact quotes from the movie, as he moves his arm and all of his fingers on his left hand move. Definitely an amazing prop that id recommend to anyone who is looking for an awesome Jack Skellington!

                  Best Uses

                    My hubby bought this after hearing me mention it 8 trillion times since I saw it on my facebook news feed. We never paid $250 for him, more lile $210-220 not including zero.

                    I will be the first to say half these reviews are wrong.

                    1. The costume literally took us 30 seconds to put on Jack. 2. The whole assembly was like 5-7 minutes. 3. The sensor is not akwardly placed, on ours it works fine.

                    Also. I noticed they cut him off on one of his sayings "ah halloween's finest trick or treaters; the job I have for you is top secret! It requires Craft, Cunning, Mischeif" and they missed the mischeif bit. I WISH they had him singing Jack's lament or had halloween quotes...especially since it was sold at a Spencer owned halloween store known as Spirit Halloween. I think $100-$150 would have been reasonable for this and if they made lock shock and barrel in the tub mobile they should have charged $300 for it. Just my opinion though.

                    All in all...love it.

                        This is a wonderful Anima Tronic, but is it a Halloween or Christmas Decoration? He pretty much only says Christmas references with the exception of: "Ah! Halloween's finest trick-or-treaters!" So it's a bit frustrating in the voice department, but the animation and overall look is spot on to Jack the pumpkin king. It was super easy to assemble and very nice quality. I'm sure it will be a hit this Halloween

                        Jack Skellington is a great addition to my collection of Spirit Halloween props. I generally go for the scary props from Spirit, but this one's originality and animation definitely caught my eye. I recieved Jack as an early Christmas gift because of how well he was doing - he was selling out FAST! This prop has a metal base, leg support assembly, and a plastic upper torso, hands, and head. Unlike most other props, Jack is completely string and pulley operated - which will make him last much longer and much easier to repair. I feel that this one will last a long time - maybe even more than 10 years. My only two complaints are that this prop has a light operated motion sensor, which is a problem considering most props nowadays have an IR sensor so they're able to operate in complete darkness, and that he doesn't have a volume control as most props nowadays also have that feature. His set volume isn't terrible, but if you plan to display him with music playing, or more props activating, he may be hard to hear or understand. I realize Jack is licensed, but his price should be more around $230 due to the lack of the volume control and IR sensor. Overall a great addition, and a true classic. I'm sure the trick-R-Treaters and NMBC lovers will absolutely love him.

                            Our animated Jack finally arrived today (after waiting through backorder status) and we couldn't be more thrilled! Yes there are a few things to note that could be improved (that some other commenters mentioned): the shoes should be better quality, the sensor is in a bad spot (located behind the animated arm( so it requires some effort to trigger, and yes the jacket was difficult to put on (due to being very tight0 BUT once we got him set up- it was magical.
                            He has 12 sayings (which is more than we expected). Although some people are complaining about his phrases being Christmas themed- we feel that is a silly complaint - since the sayings come straight from the movie.
                            If you are creative and decorate around him in the movie theme- it works perfectly.
                            We used Disney's regular Haunted Mansion as inspiration for our entire HUGE display (inside and out)- this year we changed one of the rooms to have The Nightmare Before Christmas "overlay"- just like Disney. We added his coffin sleigh, which has presents spilling out (that are wrapped in Halloween wrapping paper), and so much more. The star of the room is Jack with floating Zero next to him.
                            Since he just arrived I can't review the durability, but he appears to be well made. The animation is very smooth, quiet and impressive.
                            The kids have voted that he gets to stay up through Christmas. We will change our display from Nightmare to Classic Christmas but probably still keep him in up- but in a toned down way (maybe just adding a custom Santa Suit and beard). This is a really fun prop- the possibilities are endless!

                                      I don't even know where to start. This is my third (count em 3) Jack. First two came busted. The shoes are a joke!!! Plastic garbage. The clothing is poorly sewn and the trousers barely fit. The one arm is bent in such a way that the hands are crossed and touching each other sonit can not function properly. The head came all banged up with black marks all over it. So disappointed!!!! Crazy money for it too!!! Not what I expected with the Disney name on it!!!

                                          Was iffy about buying it but worth it at the end!!! Works for Halloween and Christmas. One last prop to pack up after Halloween would tell anyone who is doubting to get it. Don't because you will be sorry once it sells out.

                                            My husband purchased this for my birthday, at my request. I must say he was hesitant due to cost, however our entire house is happy we made this purchase.

                                                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 love Jack so I had to have him. He is cute and was easy to put together. Not going to use him for Halloween. I have a night!are before Christmas room that he will be in.

                                                    overall I was very disappointed he only had Christmas sayings and he was poorly made. His clothes are made from a very cheap material. When I was trying to dress him I was afraid his jacket was going to rip bc it was very tight fitting his chest area was just so much larger then the jacket dimensions. His shoes are made from a very cheap and plastic. Jack could be so much cooler if the creators had actually spent the time to give him great, long lasting clothing and sentences that did not invole just Christmas sayings. I was not happy at all and honestly I am heartbroken that his sayings were all Christmas themed. Definitely going to return him.

                                                    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.

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.
