Labyrinth - Jareth's Castle
You remind me of the babe.
Journey back to Jim Henson’s classic fantasy film, Labyrinth!
Three decades after it’s release, Labyrinth, starring David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly, continues to enthrall audiences with magical mix of fairytale and pop rock music.
This set beautifully recreates one of the pivotal scenes in the film’s climax. Jareth’s Castle features tangled paths and endless staircases, inspired by the illusory art of M.C. Escher. This dizzying maze of ups and downs was designed to confuse and disorient Sarah in her quest to rescue her baby brother from Jareth the Goblin King.
The Escher Room’s gravity-defying properties is delightfully captured in LEGO form. Each zig-zagging wall or staircase allows minifigures to ‘walk’ across horizontally, vertically, or even upside-down.
This chamber perfectly depicts the fanciful, maze-like quality of the entire film. It’s a place where illusions are real and imagination can run wild in all directions.
The set comes with six mini figures: Jareth, Sarah, Hoggle, Ludo, Toby and a goblin. It includes a Labyrinth book, a hammer, a barn owl, as well buildable Eye Lichen and Worm. Includes 1490 bricks.
This is my second design inspired by the works of Jim Henson. Please check out and vote on my design for 123 Sesame Street. :)
