Review: NBX Vinimates Series 1 (Diamond Select)

For today’s review, I take a look at the first series of the Nightmare Before Christmas Vinimates from Diamond Select Toys. Vinimates are a large scale, non-articulated vinyl figure version of Diamond Select’s popular Minimates line of figures. While the Vinimates character cannot be moved (aside from possibly a rotating head), the larger scale design of the Minimates depiction allows for greater details and a bit more fluid posing. Currently available over at Entertainment Earth, Series 1 includes Jack Skellington, Sally, Oogie Boogie, and The Mayor. Let’s check them out.

Each Vinimate comes in a decorative window box themed to the property, as well as side artwork on the non-window side.

Here is a closer look at all four of the Vinimates.

Love how the ability to rotate the head means you can have either the happy or sad face of The Mayor.

Overall, while I don’t think the line will be that popular overall, I enjoy this addition to my NBX collection, and I am looking forward to series 2, which is set to include Zero, Pumpkin King Jack, and Santa Claus!

Special thanks to Diamond Select for sending three of the Vinimates over for me to review, and to Hot Topic for having the elusive Jack in stock.
