Jareth the Goblin King Talks!

Back in April NECA released a beautiful Jareth the Gobin King action figure. And last week I reported about the company's upcoming second Jareth figure (with a different wardrobe and with a Hoggle figure pack-in) that will be coming out later this fall. Well, there is a third Jareth collectible coming from NECA as well.

This fall, NECA will release another variation of the lord of the Labyrinth - and this time he talks! Jareth is getting the grand treatment with an extra large 12-inch collectable talking action figure. Jareth will come with a crystal ball accessory and an alternate hand (so you can switch his pose between an open hand or a closed fist). The talking figure says seven phrases from the classic fantasy film.

  • "Go back to your room, play with your toys and your costumes."
  • "I've brought you a gift, its a crystal, nothing more. But if you turn it this way and look into it, it'll show you your dreams."
  • "But this is not a gift for an ordinary girl."
  • "Do you want it?"
  • "Don't defy me."
  • "You have 13 hours in which to solve the labyrinth."
  • "It's further than you think, time is short."
  • You'll be able to find the talking Jareth action figure on store shelves (or in stock at online retailers) this September. I'll keep you posted with details on all the Labyrinth and Jim Henson collectibles as updates become available.

    I wonder if it still looks like he has a muppet stuffed in his tights.

    Did you notice he only says things he said while wearing that costume? Perhaps they will make more!!!
