In January the new Star Trek-focused collectibles company EXO-6 revealed the first in their line of one-sixth scale figures, starting with Data from Star Trek: First Contact. They have now revealed their First Contact Captain Picard.
The line must be drawn with this figure
Star Trek: First Contact tested the resolve of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and EXO-6 has been studying the film carefully to capture Sir Patrick Stewart’s performance as a fully articulated figure. The result is the 12-inch tall 1:6 figure recreating Picard in exquisite detail. EXO-6 promises every element has been authentically reproduced, “from his 24th-century tunic to his custom black boots.”
The Picard figure features an original portrait sculpt of Sir Patrick Stewart with an authentic, hand-painted likeness. According to EXO-6 Picard’s stern expression “shows his resolve in taking on the Borg no matter what the cost.” The sculpt was “lovingly rendered by a top artist.”
The EXO-6 1:6 figure has a fully articulated body with more than 30 points of articulation. This allows the figure to be displayed in multiple dynamic poses.
EXO-6 did meticulous research when developing the figure, including the Starfleet Duty Uniform which matches the pattern and color of the original costume recreated in 1:6 scale. The figure comes with the captain’s jacket, captain’s vest, and duty trousers – all exactingly matched to the original costume. Magnets are sewn into the pants so the holsters for the tricorder and phaser can be attached. An authentically scaled communicator badge is permanently affixed to the jacket and the vest. The soft plastic boots sculpted to match the cut and style of the original movie footwear.
The figure comes with a number of accessories:
- Type II hand phaser. The phaser can be worn in a black holster that magnetically attaches to his pants.
- TR-590 Tricorder X: This standard tricorder can be opened or worn in a holster.
- Phaser rifle: Type 3B Phaser rifle used by the Enterprise crew to battle the invading Borg.
There is also a hexagonal display base featuring the transporter pad which provides additional support for the figure.
EXO-6 was launched by the same team behind the highly-regarded 1:6 figures made by QMx. The company has the sole focus of making premium quality Star Trek collectibles. The Captain Picard and Lt. Cmdr. Data First Contact figures are just the first in their collection. EXO-6’s license with ViacomCBS covers the entire Star Trek franchise of film and television and they are planning on rolling out a variety of releases in 2021 and beyond.
