The Goblin King may have no power over you, but Funko certainly might. In time for the 30th anniversary of the classic fantasy film “Labyrinth,” the collectible giant has revealed releasing a series of Pop! Vinyl figures arriving this September.
“The Muppets” creator Jim Henson directed the 1986 fantasy film featuring a young Jennifer Connelly as a girl who must traverse a mystical maze in order to rescue her kidnapped brother from Jareth, the Goblin King, played by the late singer and actor David Bowie. While the film wasn’t a commercial success at the time, it gained a cult following once it was released on video. Funko will deliver figures of Jareth, Sarah, Ludo and Hoggle, all of which are now available for pre-order through Entertainment Earth.
Bowie passed away in January after a battle with liver cancer, and later that same month news broke that Tri-Star was working with “Guardians of the Galaxy” co-writer Nicole Perlman on a new “Labyrinth” film. Perlman quickly clarified that the new film, which had been in the works for nearly two years before it became public, would not be a reboot and also wasn’t an attempt to capitalize on Bowie’s death.
