Medicom/Disney did make that figure faithfully to the original puppet which was used for the filming of the animation. Of course it is not as accurate in term of articulation, and unlike the other version of Jack from Medicom, this one doesn't include interchangeable heads/face, but a big head cat in a christmas backpack instead. However, the figure's scale remains very close to the original. Providing multiple smooth point of articulation (metallic frame/exoskelleton within) and real fabric cloth, each detail is really pushed forward, not to mention the luxurious coffin package. However some slight but troublesome defects can be listed: the scratch attaches designed to close the coffin box properly, are so strong that they tends to tear off and break the cardboard material on which they are glued, when using repeatedly the opening/closing of the box (actually it did happen to me even at the very first time i tried to open the coffin box, even cautiously). Another problem concerns the fragility of the cloth: indeed the fake leather from the boots tends to get damaged or detached (at the junction point, where the glue maintain and join the two piece together), once again, my figure had the boots damaged even before i took it out from its box. It is very thin and fragile, such as the red christmas cloth that Jack wears in this version, which tend to get cut open at each section where the articulation are placed. If sewing by hand ought to be the best way to fix it, i don't believe it is acceptable for a figure that cost that much. There is still that problem of quality control, especially for these poseable toys which are normally made to be manipulated (in a reasonable way, since people usually don't "play" with them). The quality control of these products looks to be made nor at the end of the production chain nor (and even less) within a long term use.
Who cares at the end, we keep buying figures that we love or that make us dream, and we rarely return them to the manufacturer when we notice some defects...Maybe only blogs and websites like this one allow us to know these kind of information, before we purchase toys. Manufacturers/retailers/sellers sure won't ever let you know. That's because i love this figure very much and recognize much of its qualities, that i am also very disappointed with its defects. A lovely figure still.
