    Just wondering .....
    I wouldn't for most of those. At least not the animals, like Mickey and Goofy. Woody and Jessie probably should stay "fur characters" because they are toys, so they shouldn't have a human face. But Captain Hook and the Queen of Hearts, for example, could be fun face characters

    Woody of course since although a toy he is a human model and not an animal.

    Many kids are scared of masks, which the talking characters do not have, and are called face characters. Also hearing them talk also makes them more realistic to kids and less threatening.

    I absolutely can not stand the Disney Jack Skellington costume. Any change in welcome in my book.

    I think Jack needs a make (like Mickey's) that moves when he talks...would be soo cool but for now I think the Jack we have now is good

    I've never liked Disney's Jack. It just doesn't look right to me. Jack is not an alien. I wish they would change him along with the Queen of Hearts. She looks like a cafeteria lady. Get rid of the mole!

    Disney was not going for looks alone in the JS character. They wanted him to interact and so some sacrifices were made in order to let him do so. The cosplay version looks very nice but would not be able to talk to guests. Not what Disney wanted this time in a M&G character.

    The only thing off on the Disney one is the head, for vocal purposes, not sure how you would make an accurate jack head talk other than animtronics.
    There is no right or wrong in this debate. It is simply a matter of perspective.
