The TORCHBEARER is a Klingon ceremonial position, whose role is to activate the Beacon of Kahless to summon the 24 Great Houses foretold in the great Klingon prophecy. The Torchbearer must be a fierce warrior and be of noble birth. Rejac was the Klingon Torchbearer that faced off against Starfleet First Officer Michael Burnham of the USS Shenzhou in the pilot episode of Star Trek: Discovery.
Gentle Giant's artists worked directly with production to obtain original concept models, reference photos and authentic production files to accurately match and recreate the costume worn by the Torchbearer for our second Star Trek: Discovery Collector's Gallery 1:8th scale statue. The team at Gentle Giant Studios have a personal connection with this character as we helped 3-D print and prototype the costume used in production. The detail in this piece has to be seen to be believed and looks stunning from every angle. Every detail of the costume, designed by Neville Page and Glen Hetrick, has been captured from the intricate armor plating, to the Klingon insignia to his Klingon bat'leth. You can display the Klingon Torchbearer statue alone or have him facing off against our in-scale First Officer Michael Burnham statue (also available for pre-order). This limited edition statue of the Star Trek: Discovery Klingon Torchbearer is hand-cast, hand-painted and hand-numbered with a limited edition Certificate of Authenticity.
