Krystonia Collector's Archive



Elanti Figures (by James Proctor):

Elanti Fantasy Figurines were first developed in 1988 by Cipher Ltd., distributed by Willitts Designs in Petumla California. They started producing whimsical fantasy figurines that appeared to be based on a fantasy book that was never published: "Elanti The Quest for the Stones". My best guess is that Gayle Middleton wrote the fantasy book and most, if not all, of the characters in the book were sculpted by Mark Newman. These were then produced in the Kingdom of Taiwan and subsequently sent back to the States to sell to collectible stores.

Cipher Ltd. was forced to shut down the line shortly after starting production due to some business infringement put forth by Panton International who was producing the Krystonia line of whimsical fantasy figurines based on a book. Mark Newman actually sculpted the first batch of Krystonia figurines and was let go (or left) Panton for brighter pastures.

The Elanti line was ordered to stop all production and collectible stores were mandated to send their stock back for destruction. On very rare occasions, some will be listed on ebay or other sites. Very few of these survived and there is still aspects of the history of the line that are a mystery.

Even the numbering scheme was similar - so much so that they didn't overlap any of the Krystonia numbers at the time. One could easily confuse these with Krystonia pieces. Early pieces even had the green Krystonia felt AND the identical Made In England sticker. Later pieces did not have any felt on the bottom and state "Kingdom of Thailand". The material is different than the cold-cast porcelain that Krystonia used at the time.


"Elanti is a world filled with magic and mythical creatures--a world once abundant and prosperous, now torn apart by nature's increasing violent, unpredictable upheavals. A reluctant hero arises to bring fulfillment to an age-old prophecy. Rand of Kaibor-Kon, enlisted by the re-awakened Keystone, leads a band of bold adventurers on a quest for the "Stones of the Elemntals." Only these powerful talismans can ring back to Elanti the balance of nature and restore the world to its rightful state. Cloaked in spells and ancient magic, the four Elemental Stones and their guardian wizards wait in an enchanted trance until awakened by the Keystone. Once awakened, they rise to defeat Sototh, the evil betrayer of the Elementals, and join in a magical alliance to save Elanti. Magic, dragons and creatures beyond belief all come to breathtaking life in an adventure to challenge the imagination and make us believe in the impossible! Come join them on their quest."
