LEGO Ideas Jack Skellington's House

Jack Skellington's House is the latest project on LEGO Ideas to make it to 10,000 supporters.

The project depicts the famous Pumpkin King's house from Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas, built to minifigure scale. It comes in at nearly 60cm tall, given that the house is accessed via a long, crocked staircase and is propped up by the iconic spiral hill in the background. Power function elements have also been built into the model to allow it to light up.

The build comes with five minifigures: Jack Skellington, Sally, Shock, Lock, and Barrel, as well as Zero the Dog

The movie will celebrate its 30th Anniversary next year, so it would seem like the perfect opportunity for LEGO to bring out a commemorative set celebrating this beloved animated classic.

The project's designer Laurgo23 has suggested some improvements to the model that LEGO might need to be implemented if this set makes it to production. This includes adding a back and some additional reinforcement to the house and giving Jack long limbs by using the arm and legs pieces used for the Avatar and Toy Story minifigures. It also lacks an interior for structural reasons, which is something LEGO will certainly need to change. Whether this is possible or not will have a major bearing on whether Jack Skellington's House becomes an official set. There's also another Nightmare Before Christmas inspired project already under review.
