Originally, back in February of 2007, I was wandering through results on Google, trying to find new Labyrinth memorobilia. Sadly, all I came across was a Jareth "figurine" on BigBadToyStore.com, and a Sir Didymus plushie. Can you imagine how disappointed I was when I saw there were no other characters?
Well, aviarianna and I got to talking one night, joking about Labyrinth-versions of MyScene Barbie dolls, and other such things like interchangeable clothing, Special Edition!Ballroom dolls and all that, when we stopped. We said to each other, "Hey, what if we could GET the Henson Company to make something like that? Only not so cheesy as the Mattel dolls... Something made with purpose, elegance, and yet simplicity?"
I don't know about you, but I thought the idea was absolutely perfect. How many people do I know that absolutely LOVE the 1986 movie Labyrinth, and wish they could have something other than the DVDs and posters and whatnot?
This, Ladies and Goblins, is why we are here today. We are here, with a petition, in the hopes of getting a thousand "signatures" to present to the company, in hopes of persuading them to make something so unique.
I mean, let's face it... the world's gone long enough without little Jareth and Sarah dolls screaming at each other by a little girl's hand.... Let's see something done about it!
Alright, now to the down-and-gritty.
This entry is going to be the Petition, as it were. All anybody needs to do to add their name to the "list" (which will be kept in a Word Document on my hard-drive and safe from public view), is comment with their name. That's it. You don't have to be a member, you don't have to even have a LiveJournal account. Anybody's free to comment and add their names to the list. All comments will be screened, so do not worry about any privacy issues, folks... Everything will be kept under lock and key, nobody will see your names if you wish to add it to the list.
aviarianna and I will be the only ones to count up and add names to the Petition, and I can assure everyone that there will be the utmost in Privacy and safe-guarding against any information leaking out, anywhere. Our soul purpose is to add the names to the list, that's it. We won't use your names for anything other than the Petition. You don't even have to put your full given name! Although, if you do not, we DO ask for you to put your e-mail down so that if the Henson Company so chooses, they can contact you if need be, to see to the credibility of your "signature".
Now that we have that over with and spoken, here's a re-cap on what you need to when when commenting:
1. Type in your name (not nicknames or LJ names or anything like that. We need actual names, people, for this to work properly.)
2. Be sure to add your e-mail address
3. If you don't have an e-mail address, that's fine. You don't HAVE to add it... It's just for extra-credibility security, is all.
4. Have fun! This is meant to get the attention of a big company, so no derogatory words, please. XD
That's it! So let's see how this goes, shall we?
