Henson Fantasy World Plushes

Toy Vault is preparing to release several new lines of plush dolls based on the Jim Henson Company's fantasy world productions. The company, which has officially gained the licensee to produce the collectibles based on "The Dark Crystal", "Labyrinth" and "Farscape", is planning to bring a great collection of plush collectibles to fans.

The first plush doll in the "Labyrinth" line will be Sir Didymus. The 10-inch tall plush of the valiant and chivalrous knight is expected to ship by the end of the year. More "Labyrinth" plushes are expected to follow, however the exact details of timing and which characters have not been announced yet.

"The Dark Crystal" line will be kicked off in March 2007 with the release of Fizzgig, the courageous ad lovable little fur ball. The 6-inch plush of Fizzgig will be followed by more plush characters from "The Dark Crystal", however the details of the subsequent plushes have not been released.

The "Farscape" line was recently launched with the release of Dominar Rygel XVI, the first plush Farscape character ever. The medium-sized Rygel plush stands just over a foot tall and is avalible now. A "life-size" (26-inch tall) plush of Rygel will be released soon; with a DRD plush and Moya plush to follow. Any more details on the Farscape line are not available at this time.

The Sir Didymus, Fizzgig and Rygel plushes are currently available to buy or per-order on several online retail sites.
