ToyLand: Chronicle Gets Labyrinth & Dark Crystal Licenses

Fans have a lot to look forward to out of this deal – including some 1:1 scale props from The Dark Crystal.

Chronicle Collectibles has made some amazing Stargate helmets, a 7′ long t-rex for Jurassic Park’s 25th anniversary, and worked with masters like Phil Tippet and Syd Mead. The company aims to make their reproductions as accurate as possible, and work directly with their Licensors and Artists through the entire design process. They’re very hands on. This attention to detail and partnership makes me happy to see them get the licenses for Labryrinth and The Dark Crystal.

via Chronicle:

Chronicle Collectibles, a leader in high-end movie statues, busts, and prop replicas, have been selected by The Jim Henson Company, worldwide innovator in puppetry, animatronics and digital animation, to produce scaled figures (1:4 scale and beyond), statues, and 1:1 prop replicas for the beloved films Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal.  This deal will allow Chronicle Collectibles to realize these classic films of the 1980s and in physical form.

On the heels of this deal, Paul Francis, Art Director for Chronicle Collectibles, said, “Being able to make statues and prop replicas for The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth fulfills a life-long dream and we are ecstatic for the opportunity.  Our success with licenses like Robocop and Jurassic Park paved the way for this opportunity and we couldn’t be happier”.

In 2018, Chronicle Collectibles will aggressively pursue products from this new deal:

  • Chronicle Collectibles will reveal their initial The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth offerings at the 2018 Comic-Con International: San Diego
  • ThinkGeek and Gamestop stores will exclusively carry many of the items from this partnership

The two properties are rich in possibilities. I’m hoping to see some high quality Skeksi and Mystic statues, and recreations of Jareth and Sarah’s accessories from throughout the movie.

    There’s a lot of low hanging fruit in terms of jokes involving David Bowie’s ‘bulging’ performance in this movie or hoping that they able to fit the prop into one ‘big package’, but there comes a time when one must pass on such things… lol

      Dance Magic Pants! or something like that.

      It was a tight squeeze, but I think you dodged the jokes admirably.

      Something about dick.

    My aunt brought us to see this movie, she has loved Bowie for decades. When he was on the screen she watched him like a dog staring at a bone…
