Why Stop at THE DARK CRYSTAL When the Skeksis Castle Can Be Yours?

Why Stop at THE DARK CRYSTAL When the Skeksis Castle Can Be Yours?

It’s gnarly, in both the literal and figurative sense. It’s dark. And it most definitely belongs to those cackling bird-creatures known as Skeksis; you can tell because there’s a gigantic Skeksis face right there in the design. The scariest location in The Dark Crystal is intimidating indeed, and now it can decorate your home.

 

Pod People, beware…your doom awaits inside. Regular people, your bragging rights are about to begin, as you can own this 18-inch tall collectible made using scans of the original Jim Henson Company prop, rendered in polystone. Chronicle Collectibles claim that they have it on good authority that the same castle will be seen again in the upcoming Netflix Dark Crystal series, so you might want to pre-secure your show-offiness that you were a fan first by ordering now. Payment plans are available, and while the edition is limited, that limit has not yet been announced.

It also looks a fair bit like William Stout’s Castle Grayskull redesign for the 1987 Masters of the Universe movie, doesn’t it? No wonder Skeletor fit in so naturally in that interpretation. Now, just make sure no pesky Gelfling hands get anywhere near it. We don’t need evil and good reconciling when evil has such a cool crash pad. Once you own it, of course, you dictate the story, and the only “crash pad” you may want is a soft carpet to break any potential falls if the cats get too curious.

Is this fortress fated to fall into your clutches? Let us know in comments.
