Labyrinth - SARAH!

Labyrinth Retro Style Action Figures - Wave 1 - Sarah - Plastic Meatball 2023

Few movies bring me as much joy as Jim Henson's Labyrinth does. The first few times I saw it in the eighties, it actually quite scared me. But in high school I had an art teacher who loved the movie and his adoration was contagious. I swear it was always playing on the TV in the background and I am now a fan for life. It's surprising how sparsely Labyrinth has been merchandised considering its cast of iconic colorful characters. I have all the Funko Pops from 2016 and the Neca and McFarlane Jareth figures. The only modern collectibles I don't own are the ones from Weta Workshop. But even at this early stage, I'm most excited for these 3.75" figures from Plastic Meatball. The first wave had the expected assortment of Jareth, Sarah, and Hoggle. But the sneak peeks at the second wave show Sir Didymus and Ambrosius, which to me signifies a commitment to giving us a more complete cast. I can't wait to see who is next. Ludo and a few random goblins are my most wanted. Fingers crossed!

Sarah has a simple five points of articulation.

She comes with a peach accessory and Worm. I'm surprised the peach didn't come with Hoggle instead.

Plastic Meatball has shown two of the offerings from Series 2: Jareth in his masquerade outfit, and Sir Didymus with Ambrosius.
These should go up for preorder later this year.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Sarah with the other two figure from Wave 1: Hoggle and Jareth the Goblin King.

And here is Sarah with two recent late-80's cinematic icons: Bavmorda from Willow (Super7) and Princess Buttercup from The Princess Bride (Super7).
