Star Trek Goes Boldly Into The Multiverse With Mirror Universe Sulu Figure From EXO-6Jose Lopez
The Mirror Universe is a concept that is nearly as iconic as the Star Trek franchise itself. Ever since the very first “Mirror, Mirror” episode of The Original Series, successive Trek shows have returned to the idea over and over. EXO-6 is celebrating the popularity of the Mirror Universe by going back to the original with their newest Sixth Scale Figure, Mirror Universe Sulu, which is available for preorder today!
Sulu will actually be the second Mirror Universe 1:6 Scale figure that EXO-6 has produced. A companion Mirror Universe Mr. Spock will be hitting collectors’ hands any day now, so this announcement isn’t totally out of the blue. What is surprising is the speed with which it looks like we’ll be getting more Mirror Universe counterparts of our favorite Enterprise crew. If Sulu here is an indicator, we could have complete set within a couple of years!
“Evil” Sulu looks excellent. EXO-6 has captured the subtle differences that make this version of actor George Takei different from his more altruistic counterpart. The telltale scar on his face along with the sly grin hints at the more sadistic intentions of this Sulu. This is definitely a guy you don’t turn your back on!
The EXO-6 Star Trek – Mirror Universe Sulu Sixth Scale Figure is available for preorder now and is scheduled for release in Q3 – Q4, 2022.
“Mr. Spock has orders to kill you, Captain. He will succeed… apparently. You will also appear to have killed him after a fierce battle. Regrettable, but it will leave me in command.”
In the Star Trek: The Original Series “Mirror, Mirror” episode some members of the Enterprise crew are transported to a parallel dimension where the benevolent Federation never existed and instead the morally corrupt Terran Empire reigns. Star Trek has revisited this universe in various shows, with some of the most popular characters coming from this world.
EXO-6 is releasing the second figure in the Mirror Universe line with Security Chief Sulu, the scarred and very evil double of the Enterprise’s Lieutenant Sulu. This Sulu is ambitious, homicidal and a sexual predator that will do anything to become captain.
George Takei had a large scar on his face for this portrayal and had fun with the sly, evil grins. EXO-6 has recreated this look in detail for this 1:6 scale museum-quality action figure. Standing 11 inches tall, every element, from his 23rd-century uniform to his Terran awards are authentically reproduced. The original portrait sculpt of Takei as Mirror Sulu has an authentic, hand-painted likeness.
