Skeksis Action Figure Coming from NECA

As reported earlier, NECA is planning to release the first figure in a potential line of Dark Crystal action figures and collectibles. The first figure set for release is SkekSil, the Skeksis chamberlain. The incredibly detailed and poseable action figure stands 7-inches tall and is modeled on the original puppet and designed featured in the film.

NECA plans to release this highly-anticipated figure under their "Cult Classics Presents" banner this fall. The 7-inch ChamberlainAction Figure is currently available to pre-order from several retailers (generally selling for around $14.99). I've been told that the figure is expected to ship to retailers by October 2008, so be sure to secure your very own Skeksis figure by pre-ordering one today. You can take a look at the upcoming figure below; and I will be sure to keep you updated as more information on Dark Crystal merchandise surfaces.

NECA has proven their quality with the Goblin King & Hoggle figures. This one looks great too!

Fans have wanted figures for decades! Instead we've gotten dreadful gelfling dolls from Sideshow ($60-80), the (fine, but) large and expensive Plan B busts ($60+) and the overly stylized staggeringly pricey ($80-$200) MindStyle vinyl sculptures. Fans wondered if they should wait for something better or buy these items to show retail interest. I held off and I'm very glad I did.

This beautiful skeksis *action* figure is a steal at $15. I'd pay twice as much. Thank you NECA and keep 'em coming.

Neca is the best company around these days and I'm so happy that they are not only making this but a series of Ninja Turtle figures based on the old comics, now if only they'd make some Movie based Henson Turtles :)
