The Dark Crystal: Essence Vial
Estimated ship date: March 2020
Prop Replica by Weta
The grim fruit of malignant science, essence vials were small glass receptacles into which were distilled the drained life essences of captured Gelflings.
A cruel invention of the Skeksis Scientist, SkekTek, essence draining was accomplished by strapping captives into a device which used the power of the sickening Crystal to suck from them their vital energies, collecting them in liquid form.
These delicate flasks of life force were greedily consumed by the pernicious Skeksis, thereby artificially extending their own long, thin lives. The act was a vile betrayal of the power of the Crystal and of the Gelflings, who trusted their draconic lords with its custodianship and their own safety. The uncovering of this secret crime and its consequences will shake the foundations of Thra.
The Essence Vial joins Weta Workshop’s exquisitely detailed range of Dark Crystal collectibles; a range that pays homage to the richly layered, fantastical world of Thra.

***This item 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!
