Any dark crystal props out there?

Dark crystal and labryinth are two of my favourite henson films, are there any props around from these films, i know most of the puppets were foam latex and that rots over time, i saw a hoggle costume in an exhibition over here about ten years ago and it was starting to fall apart, they also had the ritual master from dark crystal and this too was starting to come apart.
So does anyone have any pics/ links etc?.

I love both movies. I have to admit that it's been a while since I last watched Dark Crystal (more than a year), but I pop in the Labyrith DVD a couple of a year. Great stuff. I'll probably watch both again tonight now that I'm thinking about it :lol

Sideshow did a couple of a dolls for Kira and Jen. I never bought them, but I gave it a lot of thought. Once upon a time I had seen Dark Crystal Shards cast in purple tinted clear resin, but it's been a looooong time since I last saw one. Wish I had picked one up when I had the chance :cry

Monsters in Motion has a 12" Jereth. While are they not intended as "Labyrinth props" it isn't too tough to find crystal balls that look like the ones in the movie.

That's all I know of.

I'm a huge Dark Crystal fan
I did these a few years back




the mystic took a little over 9 months (that was working every day but 2)
and kira jen and fizzgig took about 3 for all of them

they're not props, but I'm pretty pleased with them

Those are some great sculpts, yeah post some more of the mystic,
i did a hoggle and ludo bust years ago which was produced as a model kit, i used super sculpey to do the sculpt and it was the first time i had used it, they are not as good as i would have liked but they did ok.


Forgive the pics, this is the master sculpt i gave to a friend and he wanted me to do a replacement hand for a puppet he had, he used hoggle as a size referance.

This is the ludo, again not that accurate, but ok
Be cool to see some other stuff.

If you want to nit-pic the details, he did ask for props and not statues or toys.

Considering the lack of material and the talent of the posters so far, I vote we let them slide ;)

derrr...

man, i read the topic, and went straight to the pics. (i always miss the good playboy articles as well. :p )


oops. :confused

well sweet, as i love both movies as well... jump magic jump.

a life size hoggle would be freaky...


i remember that some site was starting to produce skeksi heads... cant remember who... anybody? there was a thread back in the summer that had the afformentioned screen used props in it.

I just thought i would show what i had done, hey replica's are ok too, i am hoping to do some more pieces this year, as they seem to be thin on the ground.
Yeah a life sized hoggle would be great, i wonder what happenend to the originals, and if the creature shop kept any of the moulds

yep, thats the stuff i was talking about as well...

i dont think a better DC screen used collection exists... unless its Speilburg or GL...


wow, i would love to have... well any of that.

what is the jen head made of???

dont you just have an itch to have someone "finish" it? i know it would plauge my existance... i wouldnt do it... but it would be on my mind.

ever think of having it recasted so you could though??? and maybe send a few copies our way... hint hint... ;)

simply awesome stuff.

how many of those landstriders were made??? i swear a kid i went to school had one, and i never could find it... either i dreamed it, or his dad had some toy biz connections? :confused

Hey thanks a lot for that comment.

I love my DC props & I'm still hunting around for more. I'm glad you guys like them too.

And as for Dave aka The Mantis...Don't you have some goofy suit jacket to show off, that was worn by the assistant of the guy that brought water to Sean Connery in some Bond movie?

Love ya ;)

I don't suppose you still have one of those laying around taking up valuable shelf space? I might be persuaded to help you out with that problem :angel
