6″ Nightmare Before Christmas Limited Edition Dr Finklestein Figure 2002 Neca
In 2002 NECA released a series of A Nightmare Before Christmas Action Figures that were identical to the 1993 Hasbro figures with new backing cards.
However a parallel Retro Limited Edition set was also released at the same time. These figures were produced on identical backing cards to the original Hasbro figures, except for “Limited Edition Figure” being printed under the bubble holding the figure.
These variant retro-style packages made up less than 10% of the entire production run and were inserted at a ratio of 1 or 2 per 18 figure case assortment making them extremely difficult to find. Add to this the fact that the Hasbro figures were highly sought after and disappeared off toy shops very quickly when released, these have also become highly collectible.
