Gentle Giant Offers Two New Discovery Statues

2 min read

Gentle Giant, the same company that recently released the Lieutenant Saru bust, is now offering two more Star Trek: Discovery products.

The products include a Michael Burnham statue, and a Klingon Torchbearer statue.

“Commander Michael Burnham was born in 2226 to human parents that were killed by Klingons. She was raised by the Vulcan ambassador, Sarek, and his human wife on Vulcan, where she studied at the Vulcan Science Academy.

Gentle Giant‘s artists worked directly with production to obtain original concept models, reference photos and authentic production files to accurately match and recreate the costume worn by actor Sonequa Martin-Green for our first Star Trek: Discovery Collector’s Gallery 1:8th scale statue. The detail in this piece has to be seen to be believed and looks stunning from every angle. Every detail of the costume has been captured from the insignia shaped mesh, to the clear visor, to the jets, vents and scribe-lines of the suit. You can display her alone or have her facing off against our in-scale Klingon Torchbearer statue (also available for pre-order). This limited edition statue of First Officer Michael Burnham in her Starfleet long-haul space suit is hand-cast, hand-painted and hand-numbered with a limited edition Certificate of Authenticity.”

“The Torchbearer is a Klingon ceremonial position, whose role is to activate the Beacon of Kahless to summon the twenty-four Great Houses foretold in the great Klingon prophecy.

Gentle Giant‘s artists worked directly with production to obtain original concept models, reference photos and authentic production files to accurately match and recreate the costume worn by the Torchbearer for our second Star Trek: Discovery Collector’s Gallery 1:8th scale statue. The team at Gentle Giant Studios [has] a personal connection with this character as we helped 3-D print and prototype the costume used in production. The detail in this piece has to be seen to be believed and looks stunning from every angle. Every detail of the costume, designed by Neville Page and Glen Hetrick, has been captured from the intricate armor plating, to the Klingon insignia to his Klingon bat’leth. You can display the Klingon Torchbearer statue alone or have him facing off against our in-scale First Officer Michael Burnham statue (also available for pre-order). This limited edition statue of the Star Trek: Discovery Klingon Torchbearer is hand-cast, hand-painted and hand-numbered with a limited edition Certificate of Authenticity.”

The cost for the Michael Burnham statue is $185.00. The Klingon Torchbearer will sell for $199.00

The Burnham statue can be pre-ordered here. The Klingon Torchbearer can be pre-ordered here.

Note that these statues can only be purchased by residents of the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, and Singapore.

The statues will be released in the second quarter of 2019.
