FASVB posted a topic in Entertainment NewsFor the fans of Star Trek we have news direct from www.trekcore.com We saw a brief glimpse of her royal style in the Star Trek: Discovery trailer that arrived at New York Comic Con earlier this month — but today we’ve got our best look yet at Chanceller L’Rell (Mary Chieffo) and her new warrior mane! First released through the actor’s social media accounts, this production photo from the upcoming second season of Discovery features the newly-minted leader of the Klingon Empire in Qo’noS-inspired high fashion from costume designer Gersha Phillips, and – most notably – with the restoration of the classic Klingon hairstyle for the first time in the series. Mary Chieffo explained at New York Comic Con that the restoration of Klingon hair for Discovery Season 2 is tied directly to lore surrounding Kahless the Unforgettable, and how the ancient warrior created the first bat’leth weapon from a lock of his own hair — as told by the cloned Kahless in TNG’s “Rightful Heir.” The Klingons of Season 1 shaved their heads “in a time of war,” Chieffo explained, and now that a relative peace has returned to the Empire, they have grown it back — and the new aesthetic created by prothetics specialist Glenn Hetrick has come with it. We’ll see more of L’Rell and the Klingons in the season premiere of Star Trek: Discovery, returning on January 17. So what do you guys think? Sure looks more like the classic Klingon we know and love, is it enough?
JayC posted a topic in Action Figure NewsGentle Giant has two new statues coming based on the new Star Trek: Discovery TV series. Michael Burnham in Starfleet Long-haul Space SuitStar Trek: Discovery Collector’s Gallery Statue - $185 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. All her life, she felt the pressure to prove herself to her father and to be more Vulcan, however her mother often counseled her to not lose touch with her humanity. Burnham joined Starfleet and served aboard the U.S.S. Shenzhou under Captain Philippa Georgiou as her First Officer. The captain became Burnham’s mentor, surrogate mother and dear friend. The Shenzhou encountered a strange object in space that their sensors could not scan. Burnham was determined to find out the object’s origin, so she devices a plan, dawns a Starfleet long-haul space suit and goes out into deep space to lay eyes on whatever it was that destroyed their probe. What she finds in the darkness of deep space catches her completely off guard and changes the course of her life. 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 Burnam in her Starfleet long-haul space suit is hand-cast, hand-painted and hand-numbered with a limited edition Certificate of Authenticity. Klingon Torchbearer Star Trek: Discovery Collector’s Gallery Statue - $195 The TORCHBEARER is a Klingon ceremonial position, whose role is to activate the Beacon of Kahless to summon the 24 Great Houses foretold in the great Klingon prophecy. The Torchbearer must be a fierce warrior and be of noble birth. Rejac was the Klingon Torchbearer that faced off against Starfleet First Officer Michael Burnham of the USS Shenzhou in the pilot episode of Star Trek: Discovery. 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 have 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. Look for these to be released in Q2 of 2019. Check out images for both statues below.
