First Look: Mirror Universe Sulu Sixth Scale Figure by EXO-6

Just ahead of the figure’s worldwide release, Sideshow’s newest UNBOXING VIDEO gives fans an up-close look at EXO-6’s  latest sixth scale figure: the Mirror Universe Sulu Sixth Scale Figure, inspired by Sulu’s villainous reflection in Star Trek: The Original Series.

Take a closer look at everything from the figure packaging to the range of articulation and variety of accessories included in this highly anticipated release with the unboxing video below.


Unboxing the Figure




 

 

The museum-quality Mirror Universe Sulu Sixth Scale Figure is inspired by the fan-favorite Star Trek: The Original Series episode “Mirror, Mirror,” which sees the crew transported into a Mirror Universe filled with their evil counterparts.

Boasting screen-accurate detailing, the Mirror Universe Sulu figure features a realistic, hand-painted portrait which expertly captures George Takei’s maniacal smirk and scarred visage. The original Terran Empire Uniform is recreated in meticulous detail with attached Terran insignia and medals as well as sewn-in magnets to hold accessories in place. The figure also comes with two phasers (the smaller type 1 phaser and the pistol-grip type 2 phaser), a dagger with sheath, and a communicator with metal flip-up antenna.

With all his weaponry in hand and an evil scheme up his sleeve, Mirror Universe Sulu is ready to lead the Terran Empire’s quest for domination.


Mirror Universe Sulu, Star Trek: The Original Series

“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.” – Mirror Universe Sulu

Look in the mirror, and who do you see? Is it your reflection or is it some other version of yourself, a version that’s twisted and inverted and willing to do whatever it takes to complete a mission? This is the question that Enterprise crew is faced with when they encounter the Mirror Universe. Within this alternate dimension, their exact counterparts exist — except for a few major differences in personality and moral alignment. Mirror Universe Sulu is most definitely ready for his promotion aboard the Enterprise. It’s all a matter of when and where.
