Many of us are still keenly feeling the loss of spaceman and music/art/life icon David Bowie. His influence on film and music will be felt for an immeasurable future.
Thanks to those mad geniuses at McFarlane Toys, you too can own a 7 inch likeness of Bowie in one of his most memorable roles, Jareth the Goblin King from Jim Henson’s Labyrinth.
Aside from that gorgeous Jareth, McFarlane is ALSO partnering with Henson Co to produce two figures from The Dark Crystal of Jen and Kira!
The upcoming toys will include a 7-inch figure of Labyrinth’s Jareth The Goblin King, and for The Dark Crystal, fans can look forward to figures of Jen and Kira. Each figure will be highly detailed and come fully articulated to recreate infamous movie scenes. These figures will also debut in new window box collector packaging and will come with Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal branded detailed bases.
“Fans of both Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal continue to grow, while both brands also enjoy the passionate and loyal support of committed followers for decades,” said Vice President of Global Consumer Products for The Jim Henson Company, Federico San Martin. “We are looking forward to McFarlane toys introducing the characters that defined these classic adventures to our legions of fans around the world.”
“Jim Henson was one of the most visually creative minds, and these incredible movies are just the tip of the iceberg,” said Todd McFarlane, Owner and CEO of McFarlane Toys. “We pride ourselves on our creativity and attention to detail, and to be able to make figures of these iconic characters is something pretty special.”
The Jareth figure will be available at major retailers in November with a sticker price of $19.99, and you can preorder him here. The Jem and Kira will be released sometime in the spring of 2018.
