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.
