“Do not lecture me about treaty violations. The Federation, in creating an ultimate weapon, has become a gang of intergalactic criminals.”
The Klingons are the defining villain for Star Trek, back to the Original Series where they confronted the Federation many times. For the original series movies, the Klingons were re-designed to look more ferocious and war-like. This new type of Klingon became the definitive look for the alien enemies throughout the rest of the franchise until Star Trek: Discovery and has proved so enduring that it has returned for Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.
The character that best embodies this fierce Klingon is the first one to be featured, Commander Kruge from Star Trek III: the Search for Spock. Director Leonard Nimoy took a chance casting Christopher Lloyd, mostly known as a comedic TV actor, as the ruthless Klingon commander. However, Lloyd proved a worthy adversary to William Shatner’s Kirk, rivaling the villainous credibility brought to Star Trek II by Ricardo Montalban as Khan Noonien-Singh.
This 1:6 scale figure of Kruge is the most complex and layered replica that EXO-6 has created to date. Kruge and his crew were the first characters to display this Klingon design that set the standard for all Klingons from Star Trek: The Next Generation through Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. Designed by award-winning costume designer Robert Fletcher, this costume was reused in The Next Generation for Worf.
The EXO-6 recreation of Kruge’s costume was re-created in exacting detail aided by Trekspert Max Cervantes. It is the only Museum Quality 1:6 scale replica in existence.
A removable robe reveals his Klingon armor underneath with the full spine plates, holster and chain, and furred shirt. He comes with a Klingon disruptor, communicator, and a variety of hands for re-creating different poses. He has rooted synthetic hair to best simulate the Klingon hair style. The original portrait sculpt of Christopher Lloyd in full Klingon make-up was officially approved and has an authentic, hand-painted likeness.
