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.
