For some reason, when I was writing the title to this story, I wrote Princess Bride as opposed to Corpse Bride. One was a live-action fairy tale starring Andre the Giant, Fred Savage and Billy Crystal...the other...a stop-motion Tim Burton film. Not to be confused with one another!
McFarlane has released a plethora of Corpse Bride toys upon the world! Plush, plastic, 3-inch, 6-inch, 12-inch, etc, etc, etc. Like The Nightmare Before Christmas, the Corpse Bride characters are easily transformed into "toy form". The figures used in the movie were all sculpted of clay, which makes for a smooth transition.
We received the 3-inch Everglot Boxed Set. This is the Bride
(Victoria), her parents and Barkis Bittern (who attempts to woo
Victoria via her folks). McFarlane continues to do amazing sculpting
work. Of course, like I said before, it's a lot easier for their
sculptors to work with an already sculpted subject.
All of the figures proportions are right on. Long legs, bigs eyes,
protruding chins...they are all right on. My favorite of the bunch is
Mr. Everglot. He comes equipped with a pocket watch that fits into his
If you are a fan of the film, you'll be a fan of McFarlane's new
lines. They have also introduced mini plush, action figures and
fashion dols all based on the Corpse Bride license.
