Hoggle Action Figure

    OH MY , YOU GUYS! I just about had a minor fit when I read this in the new ToyFare, after finishing the day's new comics, in my car:

    On page 26 of issue 114, at the bottom, discussing NECA's '07 offerrings:

    "CULT CLASSICS
    Though a full series isn't on schedule yet, NECA'S got some awesome stand-alone figures planned for next year. Cult Classics Presents kicks off in the spring with a new Hannibal Lecter (in a blood-spattered white outfit), plus the action figure debut of Jareth, the Goblin King from Labyrinth (played, of course, by David Bowie and his package. The first Jareth features his blue outfit from when he first appears in the movie, and a second Jareth will ship later in 2007, packaged with Hoggle."

    Yes, you heard that right, a HOGGLE Pack-In! With Palisades out of the picture, I think this is going to be a blessing, based on NECA's work in getting likenesses down. It's so cool Bowie's okayed it, and the allowance that comes with that leads to fine work, like the amazing likenesses in the two Jareth busts, coming soon. Now, we not only get two Jareth figure variants, and hopefully they'll milk his multiple outfits, eventually, like Hasbro on a Queen Amidala rush, but we also get Hoggle, as a bonus. A HUGE Bonus! A Plastic, general figure scaled plastic Hoggle. I imagine, as a completely collector-based line, they'll do their best to give him enough articulation.

    Huge things are in store, now that the movie's hit the twenty year mark, and the nostalgia factor continues to grow. Now that I'm finally getting a place to call my own, though living with other people, I can finally break out those door knockers from Hot Topic, for my bedroom door. They've languished in that black plastic bag in my pile of stuff for far too long. Exciting stuff, my friends. I hope you all are granted your Muppetty wishes, this holiday season. I think I just got one, in this announcement alone. See ya.

    Awesome awesome AWESOME!!!

    I can't wait!!! I've never bought anything from that toy line, but I've always admired their sculpts' likenesses. I wonder how big Hoggle will be if Jareth is the standard 7 or 8 inches tall?

    Eh, I'm not worried about it. As long as they hire Laszlo to do it that is. :cool: Wouldn't that be great? All their work would be done, they just need to pay the guy.

    The countdown has begun.

    NECO always makes great figures! I love the Nightmare Before Christmas line. I wish they would ahve made the Ghostbusters to go with the monsters, though.

    Yeah, big things are in store for all the labyrinth fans out there. I know that Im stoked.

    I'll buy something as long as it is strongly in favor of the integrity of the characters. That's why Palisades got all my Muppet money, and now will Master Replicas. NECA does this and does it right, they got my moolah too-lah.
  11. CrystalBat New Member

    they will definately get my money.
  12. crazed gonzo fa Active Member

    I hope they'll get my money.

    Jareth Action Figure

    Labyrinth was my favourite movie and still is but after the collectors edition DVD release i drifted away from it for a bit. Then on my birthday in April this year i was at the mall and in a cd store i saw it . . . The Jareth action figure! I couldn't believe it i was so excited. It was the only one there and only $20. I grabbed it without hesitation. (Well i needed a little help getting it since it was up on a high shelf) Now i read that they're making all these action figures i can't wait for more. I'd love for them to do one with each different outfit Jareth wears in the film. Anyway that was a nice surpise for my Birthday.

    Seemed about time to drag this thread back up to the top. . . .

    Neca has released pictures of the Hoggle and Jareth figures in their packaging. This is supposed to be on sale by the end of the month.

    See the pictures here:

    Awesome, but just when I thought I was doing well at saving da monies.

    Still hoping to see a Jareth in Goblin/Muppety disguise figure released someday. Sir Didymus and Ludo hopefully on the horizon?
