This was the first Elton John Web site to report on plans to offer a special EJ collectible from the Gnomeo & Juliet movie.
According to a press release from the company, Garden Fun, after numerous samples and review by the rocker himself, they were hoping to produce the item at the end of 2015.
''There was a surprise shift as Rocket Pictures, who had the license to produce the sequel, apparently sold/transferred the license to Paramount Pictures. During that time, all communications went silent and this wonderful Gnome Collectible simply got frozen in time.''
But they've been back in contact, and it's now believed that the Elton John Gnome will be available this summer. Only a thousand will be made. They feature rhinestones, glitter, and of course, a piano.
There is now a discount on the figure at the company's Web site, and other Gnomeo & Juliet items are also on sale.
Also on sale is Garden Fun's Elfin Jon Gnome, inspired by the some of the outrageous outfits of the original Rocket Man, and described as a ''funky musical garden gnome, in true 80's attire, complete with pink feather glitter and all.''
