Lynch-themed custom-made minifigures now on sale
New Twin Peaks-themed Lego-style minifigures have been released.
Dubbed ‘Double Mountain Murder Mystery Town’, on account of it being neither an official Twin Peaks or Lego product, the custom-made minifigs are on sale now via Citizen Brick.
The pack of five figurines includes versions of Agent Cooper, Audrey Horne, Laura Palmer (“wrapped in plastic”), Log Lady and The Man from Another Place. You can purchase them here for $60 (£48).
Meanwhile, Showtime has released a behind-the-scenes video from the set of new Twin Peaks. The two-minute “featurette” includes contributions from classic cast members Kyle Maclachlan and James Marshall. Several new recruits including Robert Knepper and Jim Belushi appear too. It also contains shots of co-writer/director David Lynch behind the camera on the revival series.
It was confirmed in August that filming has now finished on the revival series, which is due to debut on Showtime next year.
The network’s CEO, David Nevins, said in August that the first of the new episodes will debut in the “first half of 2017”. It has been reported that the revival series could be split into two separate seasons, but Showtime has yet to confirm this.
However, Nevins said in August that he expects an “unconventional” release for the series. “I think it is quite possible we’re not going to do a traditional release pattern. I’ve had a couple conversations with David [Lynch],” the CEO explained.
“But I want to embrace the unexpectedness of it,” he continued. “So I could definitely see longer episodes or in terms of this question of how do we release it linearly and how do we release it for people who want to stream it. Maybe there’s something different between the two.”
Naomi Watts, Tom Sizemore, Laura Dern, Amanda Seyfried, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Robert Knepper and Balthazar Getty have all been cast in the revival series. They join original cast members including Kyle MacLachlan, James Marshall, Sherilyn Fenn and Sheryl Lee.
