Labyrinth, the 1986 fantasy film from the mind of Jim Henson mixed puppetry, fantasy, and music to create an astounding and timeless experience. The film featured a very young Jennifer Connelly as Sarah, a teenager who wants nothing more than to escape her modern life for fantasy world. Asked to babysit her baby brother, Sarah makes a fleeting wish to The Goblin King to take her brother away. When Jareth The Goblin King, played by the late David Bowie, shows up to fulfill her wish, Sarah is forced to take on an impossible Labyrinth to rescue her young brother. Along the way, Sarah meets various inhabitants of the Labyrinth who all help in guiding her to the center to face Jareth and find out who she truly wants to be. The film is one of my all-time personal favorites. The music by David Bowie and Trevor Jones is as memorable as the assorted Jim Henson Studio creations.
The new Dance Magic Jareth The Goblin King 7″ Scale Figure is the second Labyrinth release by McFarlane Toys. In late 2017, they released their first Jareth 7″ Scale Figure. As the name implies, the figure represent Jareth’s appearance during the iconic “Magic Dance” sequence. The figure includes a whip, a miniature Goblin, and a figure stand. We picked up the figure from Toyark sponsor Entertainment Earth. After the jump, you can check out my thoughts on the figure, as well as a full photo gallery.
