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 Majors thermoptic suit was to be a centrepiece of Ghost in the Shell and represented a benchmark for Weta Workshops 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.
