As huge fans of Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal (1982), Wētā Workshop is excited to dive into the world of Thra and create premium collectibles for the prequel series. 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.

One of the three daughters of All-Maudra Mayrin, Tavra was a brave spirit whose calm thinking and kind heart held her family together.

A warrior and defender, Tavra is more adventurous than her sisters, Seladon and Brea. The pressures of commitment, duty, and their mother’s affection have made rivals of her sisters, but Tavra’s clear sight and compassion means she often finds herself as mediator and voice of reason between the two.

Though calm in her demeanour, Tavra is swift and decisive when moved to act. Upon learning of the true cruelty and actions of the Skeksis and the murder of the Gelfling Mira, Tavra throws herself into the fray, playing a pivotal role in the battle for her people’s freedom.

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.


Tavra 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.


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. 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.
