What is the conversion rate between gold-pressed latinum and the American dollar? Do the Rules of Acquisition say anything about adults buying Star Trek commemorative plates? What would the Ferengi have done if they were investors in FTX? We’ll never know.
What we can say for sure is that EXO-6 has finally gotten around to giving us one of the best characters in all of Deep Space 9: Quark. Sporting his multi-colored outfit and standing 12″ tall, Quark is ready to take your $235 Earth bucks in exchange for his presence on your toy shelf. Expect him to arrive around the 2nd quarter of 2023. The pre-order window will end on December 15th.
The latest in the EXO-6 “Out of this World” alien collection of one sixth scale museum quality figures is Quark as seen in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Quark is wearing one of his multi-colored suits which was recreated and scaled down by the expert tailors at EXO-6. He comes with his gold-pressed latinum, the Ferengi Rules of Acquisition book and a Ferengi PADD.
- Ferengi suit: This multi-color suit was a popular outfit for Quark on Deep Space Nine and was also featured in the pilot for Voyager and his appearance in Lower Decks.
- Boots: His boots are sculpted to match the style of the original footwear.
- Ferengi PADD: Quark’s Personal Access Display Device in the Ferengi style.
- Gold-pressed Latinum: Quark’s favorite substance – included are 3 bars of Gold-pressed latinum in varying sizes.
- Book of Acquisition: The Rules of Acquisition are the Ferengi bible, and this 1/6 scale book has been created based on the actual prop as seen in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
- Display Base: A hexagonal display base will provide additional support for the figure.
Armin Shimerman’s Quark was the main reason I tuned into Deep Space Nine when it premiered in the 1990s. The Ferengi were a species motivated purely by acquisition. Coming back each week to see if Quark had a new scheme or attractive financial offer added some much-needed levity to a series that sometimes handled some very depressing subject matter.
