They should make Dark Crystal/Labyrinth figures

    Would anyone love to see action figures of the characters from both Jim Henson fantasy classics?

    The figures would definitely please the fans of both movies, they should even make 8 inch Skeckis and Ludo figures but for Ludo it should have realistic fur on it even on Fizgig.

    it would be fantastic!
    i think fizgig hand puppets would be cool as well.
    and as obvious as i already made this im going to say it again...
    Jareth busts... its fantasic!
    Why should Legolas be the only Blonde on a pedistal?
    (well other than the fact that Legolas remains the all time Captin Obvious)
    but in any case, Jareth busts...
    its a beautiful thing.
    that it is...

    Yes !!!

    I was waiting my whole life for figures of these movies... :cry:

    As for now all I can do is to sculpt them myself...

    Well at least PLAN B TOYS did some nice busts :) They will also release LABYRINTH busts (not full figures), but sadly no Jareth and no Sarah.

    Here is a mail I got from PLAN B:

    "David Bowie as a bust would be cool. We hold the Labyrenth license as we
    will be producing stuff this year for it. However, Bowie and Jennifer
    Connoly are not included in the license since their likenesses are involved."
  4. I tried that already and Palisades gave me the old "AIP" Anything is Possable. I even made a list of like 12 series of characters, from Labyrinth, Dark Crystal, Fraggle Rock, Mother Goose Stories, Emmit Otter, Tale of the Bunny Picnic, Ghost of Faffner Hall, and more! It trully would be wonderfull!

    Well, that makes sense, even though it disappoints the fans. I mean, the whole story is about Jareth and Sarah, and we DON'T get merchandise with them? What's up with that??? Not that I don't love Hoggle, Ludo, Didymus, the Fireys, the Worm, the goblins, etc., but they aren't what pulled the story or what keeps the fandom going today. It's not called J/S fanfiction for no reason, you know.

    I would love to see action figures made of Darck Crystal and Labyrinth. But sadly I don't think they would be popular enough and sell well enough for someone like Palisades to produce them.

    But if they were made here's is what I would love to see:

    Dark Crystal: Jen, Kira (with Fizzgit), Augra, Mystic(s), Skeski(s), Podlings, Garthim, and Landstriders

    Labyrinth: Hoggle, Ludo, Sir Didymus, Fireys, goblins, Junk Lady (with worm), Bird-hat man, The Four Guards, and the doors (with door knockers). (no Jareth, Sarah, or Toby; due to legal reasons with likenesses)

    Only too cool! That guy cracks me up.

    I like Gelfling Waldo's list. Maybe Palisades could take up the line and do what they did with the Army of Darkness line and combine two figures. They'd be small but probably cheaper to make and at least we'd have good figures.
