Broken Toad - Jim Henson's Labyrinth and dark crystal

Recommended Posts

In for four.  Wife love Labyrinth, and her sister is BIG Dark Crystal fan.  I suspect a BIG chunk of the price is due to the cost of licensing these.  The Henson folks have VERY high standards and won't let just anyone run with their imagry. Since they're officially licensed, they may have been able to get their hands on the original puppets.  Lots of details I never noticed in the movie, like the back of Hoggle's vest!

Big Child creatives is going to be painting these on their live stream on Youtube and today and for the next week or so

 

Take a look at this Kickstarter campaign from our friends at Black Sun Miniatures! It looks gorgeous! Are you fans of Jim Henson?
.
From here we wish you the best of luck with it! In fact, for the next few days we'll be painting figures from this in our live stream so stay tuned, because in an hour we'll be painting one in our YouTube channel!

oh my....  I knew it was going to be expensive... I was still underestimating it. 

at £ 45.00 for the busts, this is full retail for the most expensive busts currently in Broken Toad's webstore....    They're offering no Kickstarter discount at all here.

A bit of sticker shock here too, but the licensing probably is a good chunk of it. This very well might still have KS discounting a bit (especially if SGs are met). 

 

I need to ask Sir Cyr. As much as I love skeksis, I don't think I'd paint one. Kira and Jen though... yeah.

I don't know, the River Horse games exist so licensing can't be too high.

the river horse games were done back before the new series came out and gave the works a nice boost to their popularity.

I didn't see, but is estimated shipping on there by chance? Probably not included, right?

 All shipping costs will be added to your order once the Kickstarter has ended. This is because shipping costs are calculated by weight and we won't know this until the end of the campaign, once your pledge is locked in.

Below is a chart showing current costs for Tracked and Insured shipping, via Royal Mail. A courier service may be necessary dependent on the weight of your pledge and destination.

must...resist...on budget due to pandemic... but... but... argh!!! :wub:

I'm lucky... Too many other plans are taking priority.  I just won't tell hubby, because I suspect he'd want some of these given how much he loves those two movies.. 

 

Me... I've yet to watch Labyrinth...

Contemplating both skeksis busts...but with the price, i'm leaning towards just one, and i like hte Scrollkeeper better than CHamberlain in terms of bust design

      1-4 minis, kids on bikes (and/or skateboards) style, shipping included.

      Story
      Welcome to the Splintered Light Miniatures 15mm Return to the Black Root Forest Kickstarter Campaign.  For many years, renowned sculptor Ben Siens has added great sculpts to our line of fantasy figures.  A year ago, we ran a successful campaign adding beastmen and treemen into our range of miniatures.  Over the past year, Siens has sculpted more wonderful figures for us and we decided to offer them to you via a second Kickstarter.
          Our primary goal for this campaign is getting the funds needed for the production molds and initial castings.  Our hope is that as we get the funding for production molds, we can also keep Ben sculpting new figures for future lines.  We need you help to get this done so please pledge today!
        Our plan is to have 11 new codes but we will also be offering these along with the entire range of Ben Siens sculpted figures.
       
       
       
       
      There's only 4 days left in the campaign, so if you want some well-made 15mm goodness...

      Story
      Before the great rot, death was permanent. Unfortunately, death for those who were affected by the Soul Rot wasn't the end.
      The Soul Rot forced the soul to live on after the body gave up, condemning the soul to live forever in the state it left the body. These poor souls are known as Geists.

      Death Goddess Izanami is a sculpture based on Izanami-no-Mikoto, the creation goddess and deity of the underworld as chronicled in Shinto mythology.
      The bold designs of Axis Mundi Games and the neoclassical virtuosity of CA Sculpts have merged to bring forth a boutique product designed for the most demanding collectors.
      Death Goddess Izanami is a model that focuses on emotions as no model in the industry has done before. The sad majesty and woeful glory of a tormented goddess, the divine terror and eternal anguish of the departed, mere phantasms of their former conscience... all brought to life by a sculpture devised to match the style and the strength of neoclassical statues as never dared before.
      The aim of this kickstarter is to produce a limited collector's run called the Fukashi Sekai Run 不可視世界. All models forming part of theFukashi Sekai Run will he numbered and signed.

      Story
        Signum Workshop is a division of Signum Games company that specializes in the creation of high-quality fantasy miniatures in STL format for self-printing.
      Signum Games have been creating and casting fantasy resin miniatures for several years, and our miniatures have a lot of admirers from all over the world. 3D printers are nowadays becoming more and more popular, therefore we decided to join the market and make our miniatures more accessible to you.
      The imagination of our artists and modellers have no borders, and sometimes there are just too many new characters (or variations of one character) for us to be able to cast all at once in resin. But we don't want new characters to just gather dust on the hard drive and wait for their time to come. After all, now we finally can share all our new products with you!
        All of our miniatures have 32mm scale, which was not a suitable scale for some board games. All our models in files will be pre-assembled and have an option of individual parts.
        You can learn all about the quality of our models and to print files simply by clicking on the link and download a free model!
          The Signum Workshop project is only at the very beginning of its journey, so we will be happy to see your support, questions, advice, and comments on Patreon! 
      By supporting us on Patreon, every month you will get access to a new set of STL files of our newest miniatures.
        Dear friends,
      this set introduces 4 factions that will appear on our Patreon in the future.
      You will meet Plague fighters from the far East, proud warriors from the hot South, harsh warriors from the cold North, and adventurers from the mountains of the West.
