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 premiering on Netflix, August 30. 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.

A young Gelfling warrior in the Castle of the Crystal, Rian aspires someday to be captain of the Guard, like his father Ordon. Brave and kind, he carries a deep love for his friend and fellow guard Mira, but a terrible discovery will turn his life upside down, tear his heart in two and see him flee his once carefree home, forsaking vows of service and family.

Beyond the castle Rian will be an outlaw, hunted through the riven wilderness to bury the dark truth he knows and preserve the cruel Skeksis’ rule. Vast distances he must travel, a conspiracy he must unmask, and new friends he must enlist if there is to be any hope for him and all who live in the world of Thra.

Rian the Gelfling joins Weta Workshop’s exquisitely detailed line of Dark Crystal collectibles; a line that pays homage to the richly layered, fantastical world of Thra.

FEATURES:

  • 1:6 scale;
  • Portrays an iconic character from The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance;
  • Prototype by Weta Workshop sculptor Steven Saunders;
  • High-quality polystone;
  • Faux-stone base with terrain designs inspired by The Swallow Bog.


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

Rian 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.
