The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Figures – And More!
I don’t know about you, but when I was a child and watched The Dark Crystal for the first time, I was terrified! The Skeksis were creepy, the setting was cold and dark, and even Aughra (who is one of the good guys) was ugly and scared me, I was young after all! We live in a world where the “heroes” are generally “eye pleasing”, so the concept that Aughra was a protector of The Crystal of truth, was beyond me as a child. It wasn’t until I was much older that I truly appreciated how amazing this movie is.
When I heard that Netflix was releasing The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, as a series no less, I can’t explain how excited I was! I had to watch the original movie again (of course) and then the countdown began to the much anticipated show!
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Series
Okay, so the show premiered just recently, and honestly, I LOVE IT! I didn’t really know what to expect, but so far I am completely enthralled with the show. SUPER impressed with everything. I have to force myself not to binge watch it all! Don’t get me wrong. I really want to watch the entire show, right now. But, I promised my man we would watch it together, so I have to wait, just like the old days, when you had to wait a whole week for the next episode of your favorite show. Except I luckily don’t have to wait that long! I will have the show completely watched by the end of this weekend no doubt!
For those of you who haven’t watched it yet (which you should!) I will try not to give any spoilers. This show is most likely not for the younger viewer, as it is a very dark series. To be honest, the plot is very involved, there are many characters, and in my opinion, might not hold the attention of younger children. Personally, I think the show is amazingly well done. The puppetry is what you would expect from The Jim Henson Company. Nothing less than outstanding.
Age of Resistance Shopping!
I could go on and on about the show, I honestly could. But we both know what you’re really here for. Where’s the loot?
As I always do, I have searched the internet high and low to find the best places online to get the coolest Dark Crystal swag, figurines and more! So if you have any Dark Crystal lovers in your family, consider checking out some sites below to get a good start on your Christmas or Birthday shopping!
I love collecting figurines. As you may know from my previous posts, that I have a nice collection started. I want more. I always want more! I found some cool sites that will cure my itch, and hopefully yours.
If you’re on a budget, or looking for something you don’t mind your kids breaking then you can find a Skeksis Action Figure at bigbadtoystore.com:
I also found these cute Rian and Deet figurines at Funko.com, however these are not quite available yet (sad face). The site says that they will be available soon. So check back often to see when they are released! You’ll want them before they sell out! I know I do!
Article link here:
Although, if you want to order these right now and just can’t wait, you can get them from Australia! You’ll want to check out beserk.com.au:
If you are looking for something a little more “high end”, like collector quality you can check out wetanz.com. They have some really nice stuff that you WANT to see! My personal fave is this Dark Crystal Pendant:
But they also have this really cool limited edition (only 400 made!) Skekso (Emperor of the Skeksis) Statue for a mere $499. USD. The detail is amazing! If you are a true collector, you will appreciate the art work with this piece! You can find that here:
There is not a year that I go to a ComicCon, that I don’t come home with at least one new geeky shirt! It’s another guilty obsession. There are just too many shirts for me to own! I did track down some sites that offer a variety of shirts for the Dark Crystal lover in you and me both!
teepublic.com has a variety of Dark Crystal T-shirts. You can find them all here:
You’ve also got redbubble.com which also has quite a few shirts you can choose from:
nerdkungfu.com offers shirts as well as hoodies that are unique. My personal fave is this Aughra Hoodie:
But you can find their full list of clothing available in all sizes here:
Okay so if you just want to get The Dark Crystal in your movie collection (although why you wouldn’t already have it I don’t know, but just in case!), you can find that on amazon for a reasonable price here.
You can also find this neat board game too! It comes with paintable miniatures (how cool is that!?), you can play to save Thra as Kira & Jen, or play to rule as the Skeksis! I hope this is under the tree for me this year!
One of my favorite sites though is fun.com. They have all kinds of fun gifts, including this ugly Christmas sweater!
And this cute vintage style metal lunch box!
fun.com has many other items to offer. From Christmas decorations, adult coloring books, puzzles and other neat stuff worth checking out. If I’m not careful, I’m going to spend all my money here!:
I know you will enjoy what they have to offer, because I personally am already signing up and creating an account! I’ll definitely be shopping here myself! Plus they have all kinds of other cool stuff too! Enjoy!
Well, there you have it! All your Christmas shopping needs are covered. For anyone in your life, friend or family, or co-worker alike, who is absolutely in love with The Dark Crystal & The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance as much as I do, they will be very pleased! Shop away and have fun!
