Weta Workshop is excited to dive into the world of Thra and create premium collectibles for the prequel series, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, which tells a new story, set many years before the events of the 1982 movie. 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.
On her quest to expose the dark lies imposed upon her people by the cruel Skeksis, Brea is joined by her companion and protector, Lore; single-minded in purpose and as resolute as the stone from which he was carved. So long as he is by her side, no harm shall befall her.
Beneath her mother the All-Maudra’s throne, the Gelfling Princess Brea discovers a secret chamber. In the mysterious shadows, the young princess awakens a being unlike anything she has ever encountered or heard of. Before her eyes, an innocuous pile of stones coalesces to form a towering creature. Advancing upon her, it extends a long talon of rock menacingly in her direction.
Cornered, the princess prepares for the worst, yet the golem turns his wicked limb to one side. Resting it upon his rotating forearm, it plays a message in a harsh, gravelly voice:
‘Be not afraid. This creature is Lore, and while he may seem threatening, you are perfectly safe.’
Portrays Lore, ancient creation of skekGra and urGoh;
Sculpted by Weta Workshop artist Luke Hawker;
Designed as a companion piece for Brea the Gelfling;
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 is featured around the outside. Spy the symbols of the UrSkek, which have since been appropriated as signs of discord and Skeksis aggression.
Display Lore on his own, or complete your scene and pair him with Brea in our bundle deal.
Please note: images are of a pre-production prototype. Each sculpture is hand painted and minor variations will occur.
A NOTE ON OPEN EDITION COLLECTIBLES
Lore is an Open Edition statue, meaning it is not restricted to a specific number of reproductions. However, this does not guarantee Weta Workshop will continue to produce the statue in the future. We recommend purchasing your Open Edition statue early to avoid disappointment.
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 we’re just getting started! More Dark Crystal collectibles are coming soon.
This item is a Pre-Order! That means it is still in production and we do not yet know shipping costs. Please note that by placing this order your deposit is non-refundable unless the manufacturer cancels production.
***Many items ships double-boxed!!***
All sixth scale figures and many more items come double-boxed automatically when purchased through Secret Compass! Most other dealers will slap a label right on the cardboard shipper and ship that way with no protection. Secret Compass recognizes the value in your collectible figure and we always double-box the cardboard shipper, which comes fresh out of a master case so it shows no sign of shipping before it ships to you.
This item is still in pre-order and we do not know what the final shipping costs will be.
Because the item in still production, we do not know the final weight or dimensions, or even how many boxes there will be. Therefore, we cannot give you an accurate quote. Actual shipping rates will be determined when the item is in stock, and will be reflected on your final invoice.
The following are reasonable estimates for shipping based on the size/weight of various figures:
1/6 or 1/10 Scale Figures
1/4 Scale (Premium Format Figures)
1/3 Scale (Prime 1)
1/2 Scale (Prime 1, Legendary Scale)
Please note that size can vary greatly between different figures, and the above are only estimates based on figures we have seen in the past.
These estimates are by no means a guarantee of your final shipping cost - your final cost could be less or more!
