In a shrouded valley, lost to time, a Gelfling boy is nurtured and taught by the wise Mystics.

With kindness and patience, the ten gnarled sages share with Jen the shapes and names of the world of Thra. With gentle, protective arms they keep him here, secret and safe from the horrors outside. For beyond the confines of this hidden sanctuary the Three Suns burn above a world out of balance, where Gelfling are no more. The last of his kind, Jen bears the burden of a dark and terrible time before he was born, but while he knows of the cruel Skeksis who murdered his parents from his master’s stories, only as the Great Conjunction approaches does he learn the full truth of the tale and the part he must yet play in its telling.

Change comes, and with the passing of urSu, the Master, Jen must forsake his home, farewelling his surrogate family to venture forth into strange lands. Journeying beyond the walls of the vale he seeks a creature by the name of Aughra, from whom he gains a strange gift: a glittering shard of pure crystal.

Before he can learn what to do with this artifact, crab-like Garthim, soldiers of the Skeksis, attack Aughra’s home, leaving Jen alone in the world that hunts him. Afraid and uneasy as the Three Suns climb toward each other in the sky, Jen is left with more questions, a growing sense of dread, and a purpose yet to be understood or fulfilled.

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 urSkeks, which have since been appropriated as signs of discord and Skeksis aggression.

Reflecting on our childhoods, every one of us can pinpoint moments of profound impact that affected the direction our lives would take. Seeing The Dark Crystal back in 1982 at the age of seven was one such pivotal event for me. The world that Jim Henson and his creative collaborators had crafted was so rich and enchanting that I could think about little else afterwards, and that fascination has stayed with me my whole life. It shaped the trajectory of my career. Celebrating the world of Thra and its characters in collectible form now is literally my dream come true.
