Cool. Thanks, Will! I've been wanting to do a scratch-build sculpt of this someday (or, even better, convince my sculptor friend @trkade to do it) , but I'm hesitant to do so without some good photo reference, and this is by far the best I've seen.
So I'm an old AV guy, what is the device in front of Gig Young? Looks like some form of large format slide viewer... does he use it in the video?
I grabbed some screenshots from the aforementioned Gig Young featurette. I'm not sure they're going to be of much help; the resolution on that featurette is a blazing 720x480. I'll post the pics in case anyone can use them. This statue is one of my grails for sure.
Anything helps! Thanks for sharing these. I totally want to do a sculpt of this one day, but first I need to re-do my Kurlan naiskos since my mold died and I don't have a master. =\
Pretty sure I saw both of those figures in an episode of Storage Wars. When they were evaluated/appraised by some local expert they turned out to be tourist knock offs from Mexico with little or no value.
That may be true, though If one of them was the real deal from TOS, that would increase it's value exponentially.
