As huge fans of Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal (1982), Weta Workshop is excited to dive into the world of Thra and create premium collectibles for the prequel series, streaming now on Netflix. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance tells a new story, set many years before the events of the movie. The world of Thra is dying. The Crystal of Truth has been corrupted by the evil Skeksis and sickness spreads across the land. When three Gelfling uncover the horrific truth behind the power of the Skeksis, the fires of rebellion are kindled and an epic battle for survival begins.

Gentle and full of joy, this kind Grottan Gelfling sees the best in everything and everyone.

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.

FEATURES:

  • 1:6 scale;
  • Portrays the gentle Grottan from The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance;
  • Prototype by Weta Workshop sculptor Steven Saunders;
  • Sculpt developed from digital scans of the original puppet seen on screen;
  • High-quality polystone statue, with translucent wings cast in resin;
  • Faux-stone base features iconography from the floor of the Crystal Chamber.

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.

Crafting Collectibles from The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance

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.
