BrokenToad and The Jim Henson Company celebrate miniatures success on Kickstarter
BrokenToad and The Jim Henson Company are celebrating the launch of a new range of miniatures, under a deal brokered by UK agent Rockpool Licensing.
BrokenToad, in partnership with Black Sun Miniatures, developed highly detailed sculpts of characters from Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal and the range was launched with a Kickstarter campaign on April 24th; achieving its funding goal in just 13 minutes and reaching 500% of its target within just 48 hours.
The kits are sold unassembled and unpainted, ready for collectors to build and paint for display at home or for participation in miniature model painting competitions all over the world.
“The team at BrokenToad have done an exceptional job with their Labyrinth and Dark Crystal sculpts” said Vickie O’Malley, MD of Rockpool Licensing.
“The quality of their work has been met with great enthusiasm from the Kickstarter community as well as within the collector and enthusiast press.”
Kris Lawrence of BrokenToad added: “Many factors lead to our love of model sculpture and one of our biggest influences was the great Jim Henson. We spent much of our youth immersed in the worlds Jim created and are so excited to have been given the opportunity to work with The Jim Henson Company and to create miniature models of our favourite characters.”
