The Dark Crystal: Landstrider (Pre-Order)
Amongst the many strange and wonderous creatures of Thra, the gentle Landstriders towered above, picking their way quietly along forest paths on stilt-like limbs.
Tall, elegant beings, Landstriders sipped nectar with long tongues; their thread-like whiskers and twitching ears ever alert for signs of danger. Gathering in small herds, they could defend their young with powerful kicks from their rigid legs, but a Landstrider’s greatest defence was its speed. On open ground a Landstrider could run like the wind, covering vast distances at a tremendous pace.
In their quest to heal the Dark Crystal, Jen and Kira called upon a family of the long-legged creatures to help ferry them cross the vast desolate wastes surrounding the Skeksis castle. The Landstriders also defended their Gelfling riders, bravely battling a horde of slave-bearing Garthim despite being outnumbered. Courageously they fought, lashing out with kicks and thrashes until the odds overcame them, buying Jen and Kira the time they needed to free the Podling captives and escape.

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.
"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."
