I also can confirm Gemmy has the licenses for Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th and IT which means we could possibly see new lifesizes of Freddy, Jason and Pennywise!

I know this because of these cool looking Gemmy protection lights...

Just remember there's gonna be a lot more as the year goes on. I have heard Spirit Halloween is possibly asking Gemmy to make more licensed lifesizes since Jack Skellington sold so well last year

Boy, do I miss the old Gemmy figures. I understand keeping the cost down, but these are just so cheaply made, and they still are premium priced.
Last year I was very fortunate to find a Jack Skellington the day after Halloween for 50%. But, the low quality made even $124.00 seem overpriced...

The Pennywise projector is a cool idea
That's the only thing I like. I do like the face of that first monster but I don't see myself buying it just for that.

I also hope if they do another NBC offering they give it a more Halloween related soundtrack. Last year's Jack seemed to have more quotes about Christmas than Halloween or anything scary.

Last year the prop said:
Product Sayings:
"It's great to home! Merry Christmas!"
"Sandy Claws! In person! What a pleasure to meet you!"
"Mr. Claws, I'm afraid I've made a mess of your holiday."
“Hm…Hm…There's got to be a logical way to explain this Christmas thing…”
“Interesting reaction. But what does that mean?!”
“Ah! Halloween's finest trick-or-treaters! The job I have for you is top secret...it requires craft, cunning…”
“You're right! Something is missing…but what? I've got the beard, the coat, the boots...”
"Ho ho ho hahahah!!"
"Who's next on my list? Ahh!"
"Come on Zero! Christmas isn't over yet!"
another hohohhahahah

and finally "Thank you! Thank you!"

Most of those phrases are about Christmas or, at best, generic, like the laughing or ho ho ho hahahaha stuff. It was almost like it was made by people who have never seen the movie or thought it was a Christmas movie with some Halloween stuff in it or they only saw the ending of it & not the Halloween stuff at the beginning. The director himself has stated it was a Halloween movie first.

And after seeing vids of him, I'm glad I didn't get him. Maybe they just randomly picked quotes from the movie, I dunno, but I was not happy with their choices for their "sayings." I'd rather make an attempt at a static version of my own without a soundtrack.

RCAIG - I agree 100%. The figure was sold in a Halloween store, for goodness sake! There are more than enough Halloween-related quotes that they could have pulled from the movie.
Someone in another thread suggested tying up a santa figure in Christmas lights, throw in some Halloween-inspired Christmas decorations, put a stocking on Jack's head, and you've got your NMBC tableau to last through both holidays...

Well guys I think you're really gonna like this! It seems Gemmy has the license for Beetlejuice now!

There's an inflatable Sandworm on Home Depot's website!

This means we could possibly see a lifesize Beetlejuice too! I know Morbid Enterprises made one a while back but I would love to see Gemmy's take on it :)

I would LOVE to see a Gemmy rendition of a life-size Beetlejuice! Morbid makes some cool props, but I always feel like their props have a kind of goofy look to them, almost a little too unrealistic. While not all of Gemmy's props are completely realistic either, in general I feel like they look much better.
