Brea’s freedom often set her at odds with duty-bound Seladon, who begrudged their mother’s indulgence and was frustrated by what she deemed Brea’s childlike naivety. When Brea’s thirst for knowledge lead her to a profound discovery, Seladon’s heart was hardened by jealousy and hurt. For beneath the very throne of the All-Maudra lay a secret that would shatter the Gelfling subservience to their Skeksis lords.
In the tumult that followed, Brea would find herself pitted against the wrathful Lords of the Crystal, forced to flee her home and be labelled a traitor in the wake of unimaginable tragedy. Despite pain and loss, she would rebuild bonds of love and rise to fight for Thra.

SPECIAL BASE DESIGN
The three different sized circular bases across our 1:6 scale Dark Crystal range represent the Three Suns in the skies of Thra; the dying sun, rose sun, and great sun. Familiar iconography from the floor of the Crystal Chamber are featured around the outside. Spy the symbols of the UrSkek, which have since been appropriated as signs of discord and Skeksis aggression.
These collectibles were a dream to art direct. I feel like a Skeksis sitting at the banquet table, ready to feast on the amazing opportunities before me. There is so much to choose from!
Please note: images are of a pre-production prototype. Each sculpture is hand painted and minor variations will occur.
A NOTE ON OPEN EDITION COLLECTIBLES
Brea the Gelfling is an Open Edition statue, meaning it is not restricted to a specific number of reproductions; however, this does not guarantee Wētā Workshop will continue to produce the statue in the future. We recommend purchasing your Open Edition statue early, to avoid disappointment.

OUR DARK CRYSTAL COLLECTIBLES
So rich and visionary was Jim Henson’s 1982 passion project that it inspired dreamers across the creative arts, including a whole generation of film effects artists now working at Wētā Workshop. Released at a time when many of our crew were young and beginning to explore their own creative energies, The Dark Crystal was an eye-opener: it was possible to bring imaginary worlds to life, and it could be a career! For years, those of us who had fallen in love with this world hoped that someday Thra might return to our screens. Thanks to Netflix, it has, and now we have the chance to express our fandom by creating super faithful, highly detailed collectible figures and prop replicas from The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.
And this is just the beginning! More Dark Crystal collectibles are coming soon.
