    I have just recently begun collecting these. The day after my Jareth arrived, I found this wicked-looking branch in the parking lot of my son's school and thought it looked like a perfect miniature tree to pose behind him.

    Can't wait for the other figures to arrive.

    Well... At this point, the only other Labyrinth figures Neca has released were a 2-pack of Jareth and Hoggle. Dunno if more will be forthcoming though.

    I got the 2 pack with Hoggle.
    While Hoggle looks good and seems well made, Jareth cant stand by himself. I did try to do the cape different but that didnt help.

    The Hand for Jareth for the crystal ball cant really hold it.
    In addition i broke the Staff from Jareth by trying to fit it in the Hand.
    Jareth also dont look to good, im a bit dissapointed by him.

    I would say booth are not action figures because if u move them to much something else might break. Its more a figure to put on display.
    Beside that the details are great.
    Well was not that expensive for me so im ok with booth anyway i think quality wise they could be better.

    The "tree" really does sell that first pic. :D

    Yeah, those are the ones I was referring to when I said I couldn't wait for them to arrive. I won an auction for that set a couple of days after I won this one, but they're coming from England so it's taking longer.

    I meant to say all that in the first post, sorry for the confusion.

    I would love it if NECA made more... the designs from that movie just cry out for detailed collectibles like these. Ditto for the Dark Crystal.

    And speaking of the Dark Crystal... since Jareth is a little lonely until the other Jareth and Hoggle arrive, it seems only fitting that the Chamberlain and he hang out for a bit.

    And look, Jareth has a gift for Chamberlain.

    Actually, the 'shard' was an acrylic craft bead that I bought last week at Hobby Lobby. Right after this pic was snapped, Jareth dropped it and it shattered when it hit the floor.

    Which was oddly fitting, somehow.

    Anyway, as to whether NECA will make more of these Labyrinth and Dark Crystal characters, who knows? Time will tell, I suppose.

    I dont own any Labyrinth figures, mostly because I'm not really into owning a figure of Jareth...but Hoggle turned out nice. If they decide to do more, they should focus on creatures - a multipack of goblins would be great, and a fun way to see Frouds designs in figure form. A few statues were created of Labyrinth goblins - so if those could be translated into figure form, that would be amazing.

    I got my Jareth/Hoggle two-pack in the mail today, so my NECA Labyrinth collection is complete... until such time as they decide to make any more.

    Since the late 80's, I've owned the same M.C. Escher print that hangs in Jennifer Connelly's bedroom in the film, but it had been many years since I'd seen it. I was delighted to find it among some other dusty frames that hadn't been seen since we moved into our current home, so it became the backdrop for this photo.
