The new figures are slated to hit retailers beginning this November, with additional figures launching in spring 2018.

The Jim Henson Company has partnered with licensee McFarlane Toys to create figures of classic characters from two of Henson's most well-known features, Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal.

McFarlane Toys has produced highly detailed figures and construction sets for various entertainment properties, and this collaboration with The Jim Henson Company will give fans of these iconic films new and unique action figures that are "true to life" replicas of their on-screen personas.

The upcoming toys will include a 7-inch figure of Labyrinth's Jareth The Goblin King; and for The Dark Crystal, fans will find 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 have continued to increase over time, with both brands enjoying the passionate and loyal support of these committed followers," says Federico San Martin, vice president, global consumer products, The Jim Henson Company. "We know that McFarlane Toys will do an excellent job realizing the characters that defined these classic adventures and bring them to our legions of fans around the world."

McFarlane Toys' Labyrinth Jareth The Goblin King figure will be available at major retailers this November; while The Dark Crystal figures will hit shelves in spring in 2018.

"Jim Henson was one of the most visually creative minds, and these incredible movies are just the tip of the iceberg," says Todd McFarlane, owner and chief executive officer, 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."
