The highly-anticipated live-action film, starring Scarlett Johansson, is based on the internationally-acclaimed Anime property. Ghost in the Shell follows Major, a special ops, one-of-a-kind human-cyborg hybrid, who leads the elite task force Section 9 devoted to stopping the most dangerous criminals and extremists.

The Major’s thermoptic suit was to be a centrepiece of Ghost in the Shell and represented a benchmark for Weta Workshop’s creativity and innovation.

Taking digital scans of actress Scarlett Johansson, the Workshop built an extraordinary physical effects suit unlike anything it had attempted before. Cast in a smooth, translucent silicone over a mesh fabric, it adhered to The Major like a second skin; a piece of technology, both practical and iconic.

The artists of Weta Workshop have recreated Major's stunning suit for you in this collectible polystone statue, of which only 500 will be made.

I created the pattern shapes, and then they went to the 3D department where they digitised it, milled it out in acrylic to create a mold, and sent it to the prosthetics team. They poured the silicone, laid in the mesh fabric that we used as a base, then we'd cut them up and you'd have these beautiful pieces with all the detail molded into them - it was just incredible.

    This version of the Major is breathtaking. From the transparent pistol to the haunting illuminated base and Geisha. Her suit is somewhat transparent and is only enhanced more by light. Lastly, I have had many comments about the head sculpt, which in my opinion, does resemble the character and not Black Widow; meaning, this is a new look for Johansson and many forget she is stoic android when looking at the head sculpt. All in all, great statue, but remember lighting will make it better!

    Let me be the first to review this masterpiece, at least here at WETA Shop. WOW!! As with every WETA (and Sideshow/WETA when they were a thing) statue that I have purchased (and there are many in my collection) pictures on the web just don\'t quite convey the mastery of the artists at WETA and to be fair, the Chinese artists who make the final product. You just have to have it in your hands to appreciate the beauty.
    This statue, to me, really captures Scarletts character, the Major. Thank you Mauro Santini, well done.
    If you\'re on the fence with this statue, get off, leap off and get it.

    P.S. Oh, when you put batteries in the base and turn the lights on, wear sunglasses, it\'s bright!
