Following the release of their Jareth the Goblin King Action Figure, NECA released a second Jareth figure, a two-pack set as part of their "Cult Classics" line. The figure is dressed in a different outfit from the first figure. It comes with a Hoggle figure and a collectable diorama base pack-in.
The first public images of the Hoggle figure were shown in the February 2007 issue of "Lee's Toy Review" just days before NECA displayed the figure for collector's at Toy Fair in New York. An image of NECA's second Jareth figure was featured in the September 2007 issue of ToyFare magazine.
The Jareth and Hoggle two-pack was initially planned for release in fall 2007. The date was repeatedly postponed, with the toy finally reaching dealers in July 2008.
