‘Things are not always what they seem in this place, so you can’t take anything for granted,’ - words of advice ringing in Sarah’s ears as she explores the treacherous Labyrinth. Trusting her feelings, the girl approaches the bellowing, fearsome, hairy monster hanging by his feet. Gently untying his cruel bonds, Sarah reassures the frightened beast and her kind instincts are rewarded when he introduces himself as Ludo, Sarah’s new best friend.
Hulking and massive, with great curling horns and tusks projecting from his broad maw, Ludo looms menacingly, but the creature’s intimidating visage belies a gentle soul beneath all that matted and shaggy hair. He responds to Sarah’s generosity in kind, pledging his friendship and loyalty, following her into every peril the dizzying maze throws their way until he can go no further. But even as Sarah bids her friends farewell for her final confrontation with the Goblin King, Ludo, Hoggle, Sir Didymus, and all of the beings whose hearts she has touched on her journey will always be with her…

Ask almost any sculptor, costumer, or creature-maker at Wētā Workshop about Labyrinth and they’ll always list it among their favourite films. Many will tell you it’s the reason they do what they do. The creative vision of Jim Henson and his team was so fresh, so imaginative, and so fun that it inspired a generation. The chance to celebrate that world by making Labyrinth collectibles is a dream come true for many of us. It’s a joy to be able to indulge our passion for Labyrinth and get lost in its wonders every day!

Please note: Images are of a pre-production prototype. Each piece is hand painted and some variations will occur.
It takes hundreds of hours to design, sculpt, model make, mold, and paint the prototype for each new collectible piece. Whether it be a prop replica, beautiful environment, or iconic character, we treat our collectibles with the same level of care and attention to detail that we bring to our film work.
