Back in December we covered Mezco’s unveil of a new Spock action figure from the One:12 Collective that looked utterly logical. We wrapped up that reveal in some discussion of the show’s coming 50th anniversary to make sure you knew what was coming. Today, we return as another legendary Star Trek character is honored… Sulu!
Who doesn’t love George Takei? Whether you were impressed with him as Chief Helmsman Hikaru Sulu on Star Trek, fell for his antics on the Howard Stern Show, or became a devoted follower of his humor and wisdom on social media, there are few among us who do not love this actor. Here, we celebrate the character that spawned his career and, as with Spock, Mezco nailed it.
The official description for the figure shares some great detail. Let’s start there.
From the original Star Trek series and the bridge of USS Enterprise NCC-1701 comes Chief Helmsman, Hikaru Sulu, one of the iconic series’ most celebrated crew members. The groundbreaking character of Mr. Sulu, portrayed by the inimitable George Takei, bravely guided the starship during its original five-year mission.
Sulu was originally the department head of Astrosciences; he was also an accomplished botanist, fencer, noted expert on projectile weapons, and pilot of “antique” aircraft. He assumed command of the ship on at least four occasions, repeatedly proving himself a skilled and valuable member of the Enterprise crew. Hikaru Sulu went on to become Captain of his own vessel and was honored with a holographic portrait in Starfleet Headquarters.
Digitally modeled to craft an exceptional actor likeness and assembled on a One:12 Collective body with over 28 points of articulation, numerous accessories as well as interchangeable parts. This figure features a series accurate outfit to create an amazing collectable.
With their growing line of One:12 Collective figures, Mezco continues to fuse modern articulation with classic, quality cloth accessories to a degree that always impresses. Let’s let the pictures speak volumes for this current unveil!
