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

 

also wish there was some indicator of how big these things are

      Story
      In the depths of Agaldurs Keep, where the deep roots of the ancient Dwarven king's mines break into the natural homeland of the Gnomes, the magicks of the Darkewood begin to take hold. In the years after the Dwarves had left these lands the Gnomes took up residence in the lower sections of the Keep finding it infinitely more comfortable than their underground holes. Moving here exposed the Gnomes to new creatures, new tools and of course the magick that weaves through the Darkewood. Over time Gnomish society changed and began revolving around frogs and fairies instead of just dirt.
          More Gnomes? is this just an excuse for Bad puns?
      No of course not,  but when opportunity knocks it would be rude not to open the door eh?  We originally launched the 'Gnome More MR. Nice Guys' miniatures in 2018 and had always hoped to explore deeper into the history of these strange creatures. Where did they come from, What are they wearing and Why do they get so angry?  With your help in funding this project not only will we be able to answer some of these burning questions but we will also be able to bring a whole heap of brand new Northumbrian Tin Minis into production for general release next year. 
      We spent a fair amount of time considering how these gnomes fit into the world along with the rest of the Nightfolk and the Denizens of the Wood and so to help you bring a little bit more of that world to life they also come equipped with a small free digital adventure. Rumor has it that our author Ken became so engaged with the characters and lore that he built a whole campaign around it, which he may or may not have committed to paper - we shall have to see!
      We have 8 Gnomes and 5 Toads as well as an epic Toad mounted Deathstealer, Several stretch goals which include Additional free Minis!
        What do you get out of this? Well, you can get all of those fantastic miniatures we just mentioned and some addons with a fantastic discount on the usual retail price and perhaps bag yourself some free stretch goals on top!  You also get to lend us a hand in shaping these characters and the lore that surrounds them.

      Story
      Throughout the land, small shadowy figures are reported, often just glimpsed out of the corner of the eye.  They go hither, they go thither! They are abroad on unnamed errands and secret quests.  It can only be...
      The Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventuring Party!
      A Set of 10 Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventurers for all of your Fantasy Adventures.
      Welcome to our latest Kickstarter Project, which we are running as a quick campaign, of just over a week.   Our plans for the year, like so many other peoples, have been knocked sideways and we are behind where we planned to be.   To that end, we intend to run this campaign for just over a week, and get the miniatures sent out to backers before the end of the year.
      The classic cloaked halflings project came about because the few halflings we did have with cloaks, always proved popular, and it remains a classic look.  So here we have male and female cloaked halfling with a variety of adventuring gear.
       
       
      Now hurry up, you only have 7 days on this one because they hope to get the minis out the door in time for Christmas.
