The Dark Crystal: Hup the Podling Sixth Scale Statue
Estimated ship date: March 2020
Sixth Scale Statue by Weta
Among the peoples of Thra Podlings might be thought of as least, given their humbleness and short stature. Living uncomplicated lives and delighting in simple pleasures, Podlings are usually peripheral to acts of boldness and heroism, but Hup is no ordinary Podling. What he might lack in physical presence, Hup more than makes up for in heart. Brave, with a deep sense of justice and loyalty, his dream is to be a paladin, an exclusively Gelfling role thus far.
But the Podling must set aside his hopes of recruitment when he meets the Gelfling Deet, instead becoming companion and protector to the Grottan on the perilous quest that has brought her above ground. No better friend will Deet find in Hup, and she will come to need the brave Podling’s help, for the burden of knowledge she bears and the dangerous path she must walk cannot be managed alone.
Hup the Podling joins Weta Workshop’s exquisitely detailed line of Dark Crystal collectibles; a line that pays homage to the richly layered, fantastical world of Thra.
Portrays an iconic character from The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance;
Prototype by Weta Workshop sculptor Steven Saunders;
Faux-stone base with terrain designs inspired by The Swallow Bog.
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 are featured around the outside. Spy the symbols of the UrSkek, which have since been appropriated as signs of discord and Skeksis aggression.
***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.
