Hi Gang. A thought was going through my head the other day as i enjoyed another viewing of one of my favourite films -The Dark Crystal. Why has their never been any real action figures of these characters? Back in the late 90s there were tons of actions figures of various movie characters and even celebrities. Some lines i can think of produced by Spawn, Playmates, Play Along, Hasbro..etc made incredibly gorgeous figures that were really more like mini sculptures. A example- The Lord of the Rings characters produced by Play Along in 2001+ were nothing short of awesome as far as execution, detailing, and sculpting goes. I always wondered when i saw the latest 'Retro Movie' line come out...'When are we gonna see 'The Dark Crystal'?' The characters just scream to be made into 6in glory in my opinion. With all the 'comic figures' and busts, 12 in figures and even the miniature lines...you would think the time is ripe for a Dark Crystal line to appear. The way these figures are made, and the technology availible now to insure faithful reproductions of the characters' likenesses make it all the more easy to see this dream come true. Imagine a set of 6 inch figures of the main characters. A basic line could be a Skeksis, Jen and Kira, Augra, a Mystic, and perhaps a Podling. If they really wanted to make it interesting they could include a Garthin soilder. I can't see them doing the more akward characters ( from a action figure standpoint) like the Landstriders...but how AWESOME would it be to have just the basic set? 6 inches of plastic PVC glory to stand on your shelf! Has there ever been any figures made besides the Gelfling dolls from a few years back? I was happy to see those, although not so happy with how they looked...but hoped there would be other characters to follow. I think with everything 80s being 'cool' and Retro in general being a hot sale these days, 'Dark Crystal' figures would totally ROCK! I will not rest until i have a 6 inch Skeksis on my shelf to threaten my Care Bears with!
