To those who celebrate the holiday season, Christmas time is typically known as “a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time.” Yet, the Yuletide season has also long been considered a period when the barriers between the living and the dead thaw, and the spirits of those who have passed on are able to cross between these two worlds. Amidst all the warm wishes and holiday cheer, the Christmas season is also when the spirits from beyond are able to visit those who still draw breath. This must be distinctly understood, or nothing wonderful can come of the story we are going to relate.

The title page of Charles Dickens “A Christmas Carol” reads “A Ghost Story of Christmas”. While the tradition of telling “scary ghost stories” for the holidays did not originate with Mr. Dickens, his tale of holiday hauntings and redemption is certainly the most well-known Christmas ghost story. It is filled with characters that have become iconic symbols of the season, including the three Ghosts of Christmas, the sickly Tiny Tim and the Cratchitt family, and the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge who is redeemed through the lessons taught by the visit of those aforementioned three spirits. Yet, there is another spirit found in the pages of this story, one who is perhaps the most visually recognizable of all of Dickens’ ghosts. We are of course referring to the man who, in life, was Scrooge’s partner. 

The Ghost of Jacob Marley is a mix of existing parts from the Legions library along with lots of new parts created for this release. While the upper arms and legs of the figure make use of the “fabric” limbs we already had in our library, brand new pieces were sculpted for the figure’s boots and a whole new jacket, with cuffs that replaced the “gauntlets” typically found on a Legion’s figure, was developed. A new chest plate and skirt piece were also sculpted along with those aforementioned cash boxes, ledgers, locks, keys, and even a full safe that this cursed spirit drags around!

Of course, in addition to all these new parts, the Ghost of Jacob Marley also needed some new heads, and this figure includes a pair of portraits that can be used to change up the character’s look. One of the heads shows Marley with a stern, humorless expression, his jaw held in place by that cloth that is tied around his head. The other head removes this cloth, and Marley’s jaw hangs low with a chillingly mournful expression.

This new “Haunted Blue” edition presents this spirit in a whole new way—and he glows in the dark!

It also includes all the same pieces as the original, including the secret “iron mask” head that was hidden inside the safe in the first edition.

Like all Figura Obscura releases, the Ghost of Jacob Marley with come in deluxe packaging with a magnetic front cover and loads of artwork from this character’s story.
