Doctor Who

First Look At Alternate Realities DVD Free Geordi Figure

In three weeks the new Star Trek: Alternate Realities DVD Fan Collective gets released. The set gives you 20 episodes of Trek’s ‘alternate’ lives and universes, coming from all five series. It also contains an offer for a free Geordi action figure, and today TrekMovie is the first to reveal what that figure looks like.

 

Timeless Geordi
One of the episodes in the new DVD set is Voyager’s "Timeless" which was directed by Next Gen’s LeVar Burton. Burton also appeared in the episode in an alernate future timeline as ‘Captain Geordi LaForge’ and this is what the figure is based on. This figure will only be available via the DVD promotion and only costs you the shipping and handling ($7.50). See the DVD insert below for more details.

Captain Geordi LaForge
Here is the trailer for "Timeless" which shows Geordi briefly, plus a shot from the episode.
 


Captain LaForge in VOY’s "Timeless"

The "Timeless" Geordi LaForge action figure is not the first promotional figure available home video. In October of 1997, an exclusive version of the Playmates Toys Worf action figure from "All Good Things" was included with the VHS set "Worf: Return to Grace." The June 2006 DVD set of the "Q Fan Collective" featured an offer for a mail away DST Jean Luc Picard from "Tapestry" action figure. The Worf VHS box set often commands $40 at online auction or from secondary markets because of the inclusion of the toy.

Those action figures look a little funky, but I want one!

I have too many action figures already.

Yet I still want “Captain LaForge”

P.S. The should have had Voyager’s “Living Witness” on the discs somewhere. I always like that episode. Wouldn’t that count as an alternate reality?

#1:

The ONE problem with the DST figures is that they tend to lean too much and aren’t stable when stood up. But the detail is fantastic!

#3, do they come with a stand?

Will they ship to the UK?

August 29, 2008 3:37 pm

Will they ship up here to Canuckistan?

#4 Nope.

meh, i’d rather they gave us ‘Captain Tucker’ or ‘Captain T’pol’ from ‘Twilight’.

What about Germany, will I get the figure here?? I doubt it… but there are always possibilities ;)

I always wondered why he has a 2370s uniform instead of the one from All Good Things / Endgame…

August 30, 2008 7:08 am

Hum… Interesting

#10 and 11. Because it’s an alternate future/timeline

@10: The Voyager Episode take place in a time before “All Good Things” and “Endgame”. But Gordi already has the AGT Communicator.

That looks more like Gary Coleman than Levar Burton . But I still might by this set as it has some of the few Berman Trek’s that I felt actually were worthy of the name Star Trek.

….Man, Geordi’s cheeks look WAY too fat on that figure.

Lendorien

Oh my. For some reason I saw the little image of the figure and I couldn’t stop laughing. For some reason it strikes me as a terribly corny expression and pose.

Looks like Dr. J!

I would have loved to see a series with Geordi in command. He came across much better than either Riker or Sulu as a captain. He would have been awesome!

And I can’t believe they put Turnabout Intruder in this set. Compared to the rest of the choices it is a joke. It’s no more an alternate reality than the shape shifting tricks of Lord Garth in Whom Gods Destroy!

August 30, 2008 6:28 pm

#16, now that you mention it, the expression is pretty corny…stil neat though.

yesssssssss, the line of VOY,,,,and the next figures???

Batman
September 1, 2008 2:29 pm

So instead of making a new Picard with TWOK uniform (an easy swap-out), they make…Captain LaForge?

WTF?

I just don’t get it. Most people didn’t get that Tapestry Picard. This could’ve been a chance to update the figure and give people something they might’ve always wanted…

$7.50 for a “Free” figure? For that much s&h it should be delivered by personal courier.

Stephen

Man, all this whining. I think that the figure is really cool, and the idea of making a Geordi La Forge Figure from Timeless is great. I cant wait to get my hands on one of these figures when I get this DVD set!
