If you are a huge fan of Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal (1982), get ready for some great news! Weta Workshop is diving into the world of Thra and creating premium collectibles for the prequel series on Netflix, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.
Weta is the perfect choice to create these The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance statues because not only are they super fans of the franchise, they’re meticulously about recreated the world of Thra with a high level of detail. According to Daniel Falconer, Weta Workshop’s Art Director & Senior Concept Designer, “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!”
Let’s take a look at the Age of Resistance character statues:
What he might lack in physical presence, Hup more than makes up for in heart. Brave, with a deep sense of justice and loyalty. Hup the Podling is featured in this stunning polystone statue that stands 6-inches tall on a faux-stone base featuring terrain designs inspired by The Swallow Bog.
Deet is content and happy hand-feeding nurlocs in the Caves of Grot where she lives with her family. But everything changes for Deet when the Sanctuary Tree speaks to her, giving her a vision of their world darkened and dying. Compelled by this truth to seek out the leader of the seven Gelfling clans, Deet leaves her home for the very first time to journey in the bright lands above ground. Even as the three suns sting in her sensitive eyes, Deet’s bravery and single-minded belief in the goodness of Thra and its people drive in pursuit of her urgent quest.
The special base design across Weta Workshop’s 1:6 scale Dark Crystal range was modified for our dynamic duo: Deet the Gelfling partners perfectly with Hup!

A young Gelfling warrior in the Castle of the Crystal, Rian aspires someday to be captain of the Guard. Brave and kind, he carries a deep love for his friend and fellow guard Mira, but a terrible discovery turns his life upside down, tears his heart in two, and sees him flee his once carefree home, forsaking vows of service and family. Stands 6-inches tall on a faux-stone base featuring designs inspired by The Swallow Bog.
Ferociously tenacious, Baffi is the furry companion of Maudra Fara of the Stonewood Gelfling clan. Already a formidable warrior herself, Fara’s commanding presence is elevated by the growling, eye-patched Fizzgig perched at the foot of her throne. His golden eye-burning bright and gin-trap jaws snapping, the bundle of fur and teeth flies across the paving of the Maudra Hall in a flash of fury and barking. Crafted from high-quality polystone, this 1:6 scale statue features Baffi the Fizzgig!

Aughra has spent years looking to the skies. She took her eye off of Thra with the understanding that the Skeksis would maintain her world just the way she left it. But when the Skeksis began corrupting the Crystal even more by draining Gelfling, Aughra felt the brunt of that corruption physically. She is Thra, so when Thra started to die, so did Aughra. Aughra will do whatever it takes to relearn the Song of Thra!
