Toymaker Mezco recently dropped a first look at its upcoming figure for the USS Enterprise's chief helmsman, Hikaru Sulu, from the original Star Trek series. This might just be the best damn Sulu figure ever. Geek out.
The One:12 Collective Hikaru Sulu is digitally modeled and sculpted to craft an exceptional facial likeness to George Takei, with over 28 points of articulation, numerous accessories as well as interchangeable parts.
The figure, available July 2016, will feature a real fabric uniform with accurate trim and insignia; leather-look screen-matched boots; both a regular head and a smiling head; fists (L&R); posing hands (L&R), phaser holding hand (R), communicator/tricorder holding hand (L); communicator with flip-up panel; phaser; fencing sword; away team belt with holster for communicator and phaser; and a display base for posing post.
Here's a breakdown of the figure's details:

Does the tunic come off? Because the figure does comes with a fencing sword. Fellow Trekkies, I'm imagining some pretty fierce action figure re-creations of shirtless, sword-wielding Sulu from "The Naked Time."
