urVa's counterpart is the most feared Skeksis of all, the ferocious Hunter. skekMal is a relentless, predatory warrior that even other Skeksis hold in awe. Although the Archer’s senses are as keen and his marksmanship unmatched, he lets his arrows fly not to kill, but to steer the course of destiny. His bravery is that of one who fights not to preserve his own life, but that of others; wielding his own mortality as adeptly as any bow or blade in the service of freedom and light.

Crafting urVa from The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance – Weta Workshop Collectibles
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.
