What’s This? LEGO Fan Re-creates Iconic Image from ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’

Inspired by the image on the theatrical poster, LEGO enthusiast Stefan set out to re-create this iconic Jack Skellington scene from Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas as an entry for an online musical-themed contest.

Needless to say, his amazing piece took top prize and we’re thrilled he was willing to share it with us (the image that is, not the prize — not quite as happy about that part).

To check out some of Stefan’s other LEGO work and photos, be sure to visit his Flickr page.
