Hasbro released the Nightmare Before Christmas action figures in the Fall of 1993. While the movie was moderately successful, the toys sold poorly. Most stores received only a few shipments before clearing the toys out. Toy collectors discovered them soon after they disappeared from store shelves and they became a hot item on the collector market. All of the figures included a colorful tombstone base with their name on it along with movie accurate accessories and a unique action feature. Neca rereleased the figures on different card backs in 2002.
