McFarlane Toys will release figures tied to two 1980s film properties from the Jim Henson Company:  Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal, the companies announced.  The figures will “harken back” to McFarlane’s Movie Maniacs figures, which the company produced from 1998 to 2007, according to the announcement.  The highly detailed figures will come full articulated with detailed branded bases, and be sold in new window box collector packaging.

The first release will be a 7” Jareth The Goblin King figure from Laybrinth, shipping in November with a $19.99 MSRP.  Up after that will be Jen and Kira figures from The Dark Crystal, which will street next Spring.    

Both properties are getting some new juice.  A new Labyrinth film is going into production this Fall (see “’Labyrinth’ Universe Expands in New Film”), and Netflix has ordered a 10-episode TV series in the world of The Dark Crystal (see “Netflix Plans ‘Dark Crystal’ Series”).
