These collectibles are licensed and approved by The Jim Henson Company. Both figures are hand-painted, numbered and come with a certificate of authenticity. Only 3000 of each statue will be created.
“It’s hard to imagine the level of production excellence that was achieved by The Jim Henson Company and their studios to create this film,” says Tony Simerman, President and Creative Director of KnuckleBonz, Inc. “Producing these single statues proved to be quite a challenge for us here; although, but we’ve been eager to face these challenges as long-time fans of the film. We hope we have captured some of the magic from The Dark Crystal with these scenes from the movie’s climax,” adds Simerman.
