Gentle 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 Collectorís 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 Burnhamís 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 objectís 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 Giantís 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 Collectorís 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 Collectorís 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 Giantís 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 Collectorís 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 batíleth. 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.

I know a lot of people did not like this show including me,I wasn't into Star Trek anyway. I'm not gonna get these statues all though they do look nice and well detailed.
I was never a fan of anything Star Trek so not too interested in these.
Not a Star Trek fan, but that Klingon armor is bad ass, looking like a Xenomorph.
These are incredible looking statues, albeit for a very derisive iteration of the franchise... The likeness to Sonequa Martin-Greens Michael Burnham is spot on. As is the Klingons helmet to a dung beetles bunghole. Is what I think they were probably going for, amirite??
