THE CRYSTAL SHARD

1:1 scale prop replica
New
Dimensions:
(W x H x L) 7.5 cm x 17.3 cm x 7.5 cm
Weight: 0.551 lbs (0.25 kg)

When single shines the triple sun,
What was sundered and undone,
Shall be whole, the two made one,
By Gelfling hand, or else by none.

Tasked by his master, the Mystic urSu, Jen sets out to find Aughra before the three suns of Thra converge. She reveals to him the origin of the Skeksis, brought when the Crystal was broken, entrusting him with taking the broken shard and restoring the Dark Crystal to its former state.

Aughra has many crystals, and only one is the true shard, but remembering the teachings of the Mystics, Jen plays a single note upon his firca flute; the true shard vibrating and glowing.

Before he can get more answers, Jen is forced to flee, as they are besieged by the fearsome Garthim...

FEATURES

  • 1:1 scale prop replica;
  • Crafted from crystal glass with internal faceting, faithfully recreating the unique qualities of the original prop;
  • Base features the iconography from the Crystal Chamber;
  • Light up base that illuminates the shard with its signature purple glow, powered by 3x LR41. (Batteries not included)

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!

A NOTE ON OPEN EDITION COLLECTIBLES

This replica is an Open Edition collectible, 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 collectible early to avoid disappointment. Should you miss out, please contact us at support@Wētānz.co.nz. Demand will determine if this collectible is reproduced.

Please note: You may see a number on your shipping carton that says "0123/1,000" - this is just the serial number of your piece in its particular production run and does not mean it's a limited edition.

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 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!

Now 40 years later we have the great pleasure of breathing life once more into this magical world, celebrating the creativity and passion that inspired so many of us today. We hope you’ll join us in reliving the world of Thra and its inhabitants as we continue to explore Jim Henson’s 1982 The Dark Crystal.
