Deet is content and happy hand-feeding nurlocs in the Caves of Grot where she lives with her family. But everything changes for Deet when the Sanctuary Tree speaks to her, giving her a vision of their world darkened and dying. Compelled by this truth to seek out the leader of the seven Gelfling clans, Deet leaves her home for the very first time to journey in the bright lands above ground. Even as the three suns sting in her sensitive eyes, Deet's bravery and single-minded belief in the goodness of Thra and its people drive in pursuit of her urgent quest.

AN ICONIC PAIRING
Joining Weta Workshop’s Dark Crystal range, Deet has been designed to accompany her friend and protector, Hup. The crescent shape of the Gelfling’s base connects with the circular base of the brave Podling. Although available as standalone statues, we recommend displaying them together as one heroic pair, straight from the fantastical world of Thra.
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
Deet the Gelfling is an Open Edition statue, meaning it is not restricted to a specific number of reproductions. However, this does not guarantee Weta 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 Weta 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.
