The Dark Crystal Prop Replicas

The Dark Crystal celebrated its 35th anniversary at the end of 2017, drumming up even more interest in the Jim Henson production that first hit the big screen, and many collectible houses are still celebrating.

For those of you who don’t know, the fantasy film follows a young man who goes on a quest to find a shard of the dark crystal, a powerful gem that once provided balance to the universe. It’s the key to bringing peace back to the world after it was taken over by the evil Skeksis. Now ans of the fantasy adventure can now have a piece of The Dark Crystal themselves.

No, we’re not talking about the titular crystal itself (not exactly anyway), but instead you can get your hands on two prop replicas: the emperor’s scepter and the Castle of the Skeksis. Check out both of The Dark Crystal prop replicas from Chronicle Collectibles below. Read More »
