New licensor EXO-6 debuted last year focusing solely on making highly-detailed 12″ Star Trek figures and impressed us enough to make our Best of 2021 List. We were especially impressed with their first two releases: Data and Picard from Star Trek: First Contact. Today they revealed an upcoming figure for another iconic Next Generation character.
Star Trek: The Next Generation launched in the fall of 1987 with the two-hour pilot “Encounter at Farpoint” and the introduction of what would become one of the series most compelling, recurrent, uninvited guests: Q, the seemingly all-powerful judge of mankind played with an aggravating irreverence by actor John DeLancie. Q ultimately appeared in eight episodes of TNG, continually bedeviling Patrick Stewart’s Jean-Luc Picard and bookending the show with his appearance in the two-part series finale “All Good Things.”
Since then Q has appeared in other Trek series as well as the Star Trek World Tour, a number of Trek video games and… My Little Pony? (the Discord character DeLancie voiced for the popular animated show is remarkably Q-like). 2022 is shaping up as a big year for Q as he’ll not only be appearing in season two of Star Trek: Picard on Paramount+, but he’s also getting his own high-end collectible 1/6 scale action figure from EXO-6.
EXO-6’s upcoming Q figure features the character in his red-and-black ceremonial robes and chain-of-office as he appeared in “Encounter at Farpoint,” with a remarkable likeness of John DeLancie that captures all the Q character’s arrogant mystique.
The figure also comes with eight interchangeable hands so you can show Q snapping his fingers to alter reality as we know it, gesturing floridly to deliver a witty putdown, or clenching his hands in rage at Picard’s human stubbornness. Will you be able to pull off Q’s hat and hood to reveal his hairdo? And will he ever have a throne to sit on? Only time will tell…
The Q figure is expected to ship this spring and retails for $205. It is currently available for pre-order until February 4th for a $20 non-refundable deposit—after that, even an annular confinement beam won’t guarantee you’ll get this figure. Ordering and additional info is available at the EXO-6 site and Facebook page. You can also pre-order it at Entertainment Earth.
What’s next for EXO-6
EXO-6 will continue to expand their line in 2022 with a number of releases. These include TOS “Mirror, Mirror” Spock and Star Trek Voyager Holographic Doctor figure. Future releases for Star Trek: Discovery and more are being planned. Visit EX0-6 for more details and pre-order reservations.
