"Dark Crystal" Figures To Launch "The Jim Henson Signature Collection"

In Celebration of the 25th anniversary of "The Dark Crystal" (along with a special edition DVD, and a new soundtrack re-release), The Jim Henson Company, in association with MINDStyle, is releasing a set of limited-edition Dark Crystal collectibles.

Prototypes (with limited productions of only 2,500 each) of some upcoming Dark Crystal figures were on display at Comic-Con in San Diego. A vinyl figure of Jen aboard a full-figure Landstrider and a figure of uRac the Mystic scribe were both available at Comic-Con.

MINDstyle has licensed several properties from the Jim Henson Company, including the Jim Henson's City Critters. The Dark Crystal 25th Anniversary figures are part of another new line from Henson and MINDstyle titled "The Jim Henson Signature Collection". Other figures and collectibles are in development for the line, and the products should start to become available soon. I will be sure to keep you posted as more information on these, and other pieces of Jim Henson merchandise, becomes available.
