    Yes, exactly. If your going to do a plush doll, its got to look right, and most likely be expensive. If they don't take the time, and are just releasing something that looks or slightly resembles the characters, it turns out like the products above.

    I guess its a matter of taste. I could care less about plush dolls. Never liked the look of them. The world of the Dark Crystal I believe translates well to posters/paintings/maquette types of collectibles. It is long overdue unfortunately, however, perhaps with the next film (if indeed it is still going forward, I've heard nothing for months) we will see more high end collectibles.

    Was there ever a GOOD version out? I remember reading when the film was first released about limited edition dolls, and even adult closthing inspired by the film's designs. I remeber looking for this stuff, but never saw it. On in the U.K.?

    I don't know.. I don't think the plush is that bad. The figure that came with Kira from Sideshow Toys not that one was aweful, but this one I could live with. I saw another picture of him with his mouth open, and he looks MUCH better. :)

    You can check out the picture at: www.bigbadtoystore.com

    Yeah, I've seen them though they're not very good in my opinion.

    Welcome to the forums Button!
  11. Yikes, I see what you guys mean about the Fizzgig plush! It doesn't look anything like him! Looks more like one of Marvin Suggs' Muppaphones.

    I dunno, im kinda tempted coz i have this OCD- must buy henson products- thing-....
    I dont get how its so hard to make a plush tho, i mean, in labyrinthm its all based on toys in her room, so if they couldnt reproduce the puppets, why not the toys? that way you could be in sarahs room....ok, im slightly strange and obsessive lol :halo:
    I personally want them to make the wild gang....:)

    I went to a convention this weekend and Toy Vault was telling people about their upcoming stuff. They are doing a Jen & Kira with a sculpted head and a plush body that sounded really neat. Has anyone came across a picture of these online - Im dieing to see them. Also doing alot of other characters from Farscape and Labyrinth like Scorpius.

    I've got that same disorder, lol. And I've always thought the same thing about the toys in her room too! They look awesome and vintage-y. I'll probably just make my own, but it'd be great if some toy company would produce some for the masses.

    Was that pre-toy fair in Tx? I would love to see a doll made that way- I looked at the Gelfling dolls made in (2000? 2002?) And was very unhappy about how well they came out- I actually don't have much hope for a well made Gelfling doll unless it is artist made... hmmmm

    It was at a retailers conference in Fort Wayne. They made them sound really good and said that the sculptor making the heads was pretty famous. I forget his name now though. Still no luck in tracking down images though!

    I talked to ToyVault and was told about the slew of Henson Fantasy products in the works for 2008. You can read about them here.
