New Playmates ST Movie based action figures, prop replicas etc.
- For those fearing that Mattel's Barbie Doll versions of Kirk, Spock
and Uhura from the forthcoming film would be the only merchandise
from the new film, fear not.
If you weren't aware of it Playmates once again has the license and
the figures are already for sale online and will be in stores by
April featuring a new bridge crew of figures from the film in a
bridge set, transporter set, phaser, tricorder, communicator and
Enterprise model/toy based on the new version of the NCC-1701. The
scale of the figures is the same as their prior ones. I'm sure other
characters from the film will be made later, especially if it is a
hit film. I have most of the Playmates figures and liked this scale
size so I guess I'll be getting this batch plus the toy prop
replicas. They may come in handy around the time of the film for
promotion purposes or just to have on hand for fun. I'm sure they
make sounds and light up too. The tricorder says tricorder on it so
that we don't forget what it is and it looks like an old tape
recorder. The phaser on the other hand looks cool and so does the
Kind of a sleek Radio Shack version of what we all came to love from
the early start of Star Trek. I'm sure they are at Star Trek.com but
if not you can google any action figure site and you'll find your way
to photos of the new Playmates stuff.
