These GHOST IN THE SHELL Statues Are Detailed and Dangerous for Your Wallet

The upcoming Ghost in the Shell film has its fair share of controversy, but there’s no denying that the visual effects and cyberpunk feel that we’ve seen from the trailers look pretty amazing. Weta Workshop is a design studio based in New Zealand that was brought on to handle merchandising duties for the movie. With the March release date approaching, Weta Workshop has introduced two highly detailed statues of the Geisha and the Major.

The statues are limited to 500 pieces each and are priced at a hefty $449.00, but it certainly looks like you’re getting your money’s worth, especially considering they’re at 1:4 scale. According to the website, the Workshop spent months working closely with director Rupert Sanders and his production team, helping to translate the iconic manga into a reimagined live-action setting. The attention to detail definitely shows through the quality of the builds.

Both of the statues have differing features. While the Geisha has two interchangeable heads, the Major has an illuminating base and weighs almost three pounds more. On the Weta Workshop site it tells you who the sculptors of the pieces are (Mauro Santini, Lindsey Crummet and Gary Hunt), which gives it a nice personal touch. Being able to put a face to the names that meticulously crafted all the intricate parts is an added bonus.

If you’re in the market for having the Major loom over you as she wields the decapitated head of a robot geisha in your presence, preorders are available now and will be delivered in March 2017.
