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.

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.
