DST Announces New Star Trek Toys, Figures & More at ToyFair 2009

At this weekend’s Toy Fair (New York), Diamond Select Toys revealed plans for some of their 2009 Star Trek line. Newly announced items include TOS & Wrath of Khan toys, an Enterprise D variant ship, a Pike bust and (of course) a bunch of action figures, including a Romulan Kirk and a ‘fascinating’ Spock. So buckle up and let’s see what DST has in mind in what is certainly the best year for Star Trek merchandise ever. 



ROLE PLAYING: TWOK Com & TOS Geo Tricorder
DST has announced the first ever role playing toy based on the communicators from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. In stores this November for a suggested price of $30, the communicator will feature lighting and sound effects from the classic film. The communicator joins the previously announced TWOK phaser which is available this March.

Collectors already anticipating the pending availability of two role playing versions of the 1960s era tricorder (a science version and an exclusive medical version from Entertainment Earth) will be pleased to hear of another item. Today, DST announced a third variety, a geological tricorder, will join these with a date and retail information to be determined.

Continuing the 7" action figure versions of the original crew, the 2009 line from DST will include McCoy (surgeon version). Christine Chapel (a DST first for their 7" line), Kirk (from "The Enemy Within"), and two firsts in the history of Star Trek action figures from any company, the Romulan Commander from "Balance of Terror" and the Salt Vampire from "The Man Trap" (not displayed). Each figure includes nicely detailed accessories, from gloves for the Romulan Commander to McCoy’s medical equipment. These figures will be available this August and retail for $16. Also this August, there will be a new Kirk and Spock 2-pack, this time with a "Enterprise Incident" pairing of Kirk in Romulan Disguise and Spock (with his "fascinating" facial gesture). Fascinating, indeed!

More Borg figures
The second wave of Borg figures was also announced. The line will include a silver outfitted Seven of Nine, Locutus of Borg (First Contact version), and the Borg Queen. It is our hope that sales of the Voyager themed figures might inspire DST to make more Voyager figures (besides the Seven of Nine figures, the only Voyager specific figure was a "Timeless" version of Geordi LaForge). 2010 is the 15th Anniversary of Voyager, and fans who grew up with the show might be willing to enjoy some nostalgia products.

Figures w/ chairs
Two more "figures that sit in their Captain’s chairs" are planned for 2009. Joining the already available Kirk, Pike, Picard, and Riker and Chairs versions will be 2009’s Captain Benjamin Sisko and his USS Defiant command seat (available this July for $25), and another Kirk, this time with his Mirror Universe chair (available this June). Halkans beware!

SHIPS: ‘All Good Things’ D variant
The All Good Things version of the USS Enterprise 1701 D has been hinted at by DST for months, and at Toy Fair they have finally revealed the first peek at the ship with details. Available this spring, the AGT version will feature the infamous tri-nacelle design, and lighting and sound effects. DST has promised more details about where this exclusive version of the Enterprise D will be available. The regular version of the Enterprise D is shipping soon and is available for preorder from Entertainment Earth.

BUSTS: Capt. Pike
Good news for the fans of DST’s bust line. Although uncertain about if the line would continue, DST has revealed a Captain Christopher Pike bust available this year. The retail price is $45, which is the same as the previously released busts in the line (which have included the 5 captains, and an Admiral Kirk, and Commander Spock bust).

February 14, 2009 2:14 pm

“Mirror Kirk w/ chair” is that kirk in blackface?

February 14, 2009 2:16 pm

Those Kirk figures look strangely like… Kirk. Is this a first?

Mo’ money…mo’ money.

February 14, 2009 2:24 pm

That is nice, I have a green toga Kirk from 2003 right here on my desk…

February 14, 2009 2:24 pm

Wow I gotta get the Sisko in Defiant chair,

Geebus look at the size of 7of9’s Garbanzoes!

February 14, 2009 2:24 pm

o my gosh….this is a really great time to be a trekkie, ain’t it?
awesome awesome awesome

February 14, 2009 2:37 pm

All good stuff I just wish I still had my discount at the Experience.

February 14, 2009 2:39 pm

TWOK comm is pretty basic, but it’s a welcome addition.

I’d like to see role play toys from all the Trek movies.

ST3 Phaser and communicator
ST4 Klingon Comm the phaser I dunno
ST5/6 Phaser

Those’ll be nice!


February 14, 2009 2:43 pm

Short sleeved McMoy! And the other green shirted Kirk! I’m grabbing these fo’ sure!

February 14, 2009 2:44 pm

Is Sleeveless McCoy from The Devil in the Dark?

February 14, 2009 2:46 pm

Capt. Pike Bust is pretty cool.

Capt Mike Of The Terran Empire
February 14, 2009 2:53 pm

Ok. I like. I love the Mirrior version the best. Thats kool.

February 14, 2009 2:54 pm

Romulan Kirk & ‘Fascinating’ Spock are a great addition for any collection, for sure. And a green shirted Kirk is always welcome! :)

Ah, and the Salt Vampire, at last… This is very, very, very cool!

February 14, 2009 2:59 pm

I’ll be adding most of this to my collection!

February 14, 2009 3:01 pm

Very happy to see the Enterprise D is shipping soon, been looking forward to that arriving for ages. Had time to try and clear some shelf space at least! Will definitely be ordering Sisko in the Defiant chair too.

when it said TOS Romulan Commander i instantly thought of the sexy Enterprise Incident romulan commander….

so thats what a WOK commuincator looks like inside…

i imagine eventually there will be every different version of every different chracter throughout the TOS and movies avaliable…and maybe quite a few TNG, DS9 etc as well….im sorta glad i aint an action figure junkie…

February 14, 2009 3:13 pm

11, agreed. Playmates never made a ST3 Phaser so it would be nice addition even for those who have the Playmates 1990’s Phasers. I would also like to see DST’s version of the ST6 Phaser, another excellent edition. I am also happy that they are starting to make items never made before (by Playmates in the 1990’s) such as the TWOK Communicator. It will become a part of my collection.

As a TNG fan, I’m pleased that they will soon be releasing the beautiful Ent-D and the “All Good Things…” Future Ent-D. I look forward to both of them. I would also like to see the TNG, FC, and NEM Phasers from DST as well as TNG, FC, and NEM Tricorders. Those would be welcome additions to my collection.

This is the best Trek news of the year!!!

Nurse Chapel!!
Finally some romulans!!!
Bones in his smock!!

This washed the taste of those crap playmates figures out of my mouth completely!!

Thank you DST!!!!! It”s good to see people who actually know something about Trek staying involved!

February 14, 2009 3:21 pm

The WOK Communicator and Phaser would be great !!!!

Go with my Monster Maroons !!!

February 14, 2009 3:23 pm

Wonder if they’ll have a Shatner Kirk from the new movie toy…..hes so in it……..unleash the debate!

February 14, 2009 3:37 pm

23…. I would like to think so.

February 14, 2009 3:45 pm

Son of a….
So us Voyager fans (We are real) get crapped all over, again.
Well, I guess I can display the “Timeless” Geordi with the 3 Seven of Nines and call it my Voyager crew. At this point, I wish the whole crew of Voyager had enormous chests so at least they would have gotten a shot at a figure.
Come one, we’re now getting a season 7 Sisko, a Sisko in Defiant chair, a season ( Whatever seasons he still had hair an wore the older uniform) Sisko, but not even a single Janeway figure?!. DST, I pure and simply hate you now.

February 14, 2009 4:01 pm

“Today, DST announced a third variety, a geological tricorder, will join these with a date and retail information to be determined.”

So when are they coming out with the other two versions I’ve already ordered which are behind schedule?

February 14, 2009 4:02 pm

I gotta say, a lot of this stuff actually looks pretty cool.

Although, is there some rule that EVERY damn Spock action figure ever made has to have his hand in the Vulcan salute? It’s getting really freakin old. lol

February 14, 2009 4:03 pm

Are you looking Playmates ?

February 14, 2009 4:04 pm

Nice! McCoy looks very badass!

February 14, 2009 4:10 pm

It’s good to see the U.S.S. Enterprise D is finally down the shoot . And nice to see her in the wndow packaging . Soon , if all goes right that beauty will be warping in and docking on shelves all across the nation , including mine, once I make room for her that is LOL!

February 14, 2009 4:10 pm

Was 7 of 9 really that BIG??

February 14, 2009 4:24 pm

Maybe they’re Borg implants…

That first group really is the best-looking set I think I’ve ever seen. Really captures Shat and De, as well as Marc Leonard.

February 14, 2009 4:27 pm

Very, very nice! Definitely among the most detailed figures. :3 I’ll admit, I’m impressed.

Scott B. here.
February 14, 2009 4:28 pm

This is a great line-up of items. That face sculpt on Locutus is Spot-On.

I went through the whole line-up of pix on the link, but didn’t see the Salt Vampire. Is it there? Very cool that they’re finally making one of those poor things.

Scott B. out.

February 14, 2009 4:53 pm

So geology is not a part of science anymore?

February 14, 2009 4:56 pm

Great….another starship I will be forced to buy! Lords of Kobol help me!

USS Its Not Cannon
February 14, 2009 5:20 pm

Yep there will be a old Kirk toy, as the Shat is soooooo in the movie

February 14, 2009 5:23 pm

7 o’ 9 accurately proportioned. Hubba, hubba!

February 14, 2009 5:29 pm

Rather touching to see that they took time and interest in doing a Capt. Pike bust, I’m impressed.

February 14, 2009 5:30 pm

I always liked the green wrap-around command shirt variant that Kirk sometimes wore. It was spiffy. :)

As I was looking at the pics, I was thinking that ZQ as Spock looks so close to Nimoy as Spock that they could probably get away with not changing the mold….

February 14, 2009 6:01 pm

OMG – Gotta have – in no particular order- Sisko / Mirror Kirk in chair(s)!
Romulan cmdr- Kirk/Spock from IV….Wow…I need a job bad!!!!

February 14, 2009 6:03 pm

I would rather buy ten versions of Sisko then one version of the baddest captain ever in Star Trek Miss Janewayne.
Sorry but i love DST for that move. There is no market for Voyager except 7 of 9 the whole crew was a bunch of caricatures and no “real” Star Trek fan can enjoy and appreciate this series. It was a waste of 7 seasons with the first 3 seasons a complete mess and the rest medoocre and only in parts good.

back to topic:
The All good things Enterprise!!!!!!!
Boy, been waiting for that one for years.Legendary ship.
Locitus looks great too.
Wonder if these will be available here in Europe

#23, 24, 37 – it will be a special edition talking Shatner doll and when you press the button it says ‘Im not in the movie!…this is a bad business decision!…leonards in it…but….im ….not!…JJ.. ‘ etc…comes complete with fake Trek XI script and laptop

actually talking of which – DTS or hot toys should do some non star trek figures for star trek actors….e.g. a TJ Hooker figure, Nightmare 20.000 bug eyed figure (complete with water cup and pistol), Rocket Man tux figure, The Intruder white suit figure, MI Paris Nimoy

and what about other retro SF stuff like a David Vincent Invaders figure or a Christopher Reeve Superman (actually would prefer an evil Superman III version)…sure someone will get around to doing the more obsure stuff eventually (ali notice companies like MacFarlene, DTS and HotToys are getting around to doing the more obsure stuff fans want now)

February 14, 2009 6:13 pm

Don’t care for the face sculpt on mirror Kirk, but whoever did the enemy within and romulan kirk deserves a raise! They FINALLY got it right! Now if I can do a head swap with my yellow shirt kirk!

Glad to see the WOK communicator and I have got to get around to pre-ordering a tricorder.

DST is doing some great work on TOS still. Does anyone know if they still have a version of the old AA message boards?

February 14, 2009 6:17 pm

not bad

February 14, 2009 6:27 pm

these figures look fantastic

I want to collect them all

These look cooler than playmates ones for the new movie

February 14, 2009 6:37 pm

SO much for saving money this year… Let’s hope they follow up the BoT Romulan Commander with the Enterprise Incident Romulan Commander!

February 14, 2009 6:37 pm

Damn……. I never even noticed the details of the TWOK communicator before. That’s an odd-looking unit, like some sort of generic, field-issue piece of backup equipment. And after looking at that bust, it reinforces my opinion that Robert Patrick was woefully overlooked as the new Chris Pike.

T-1000, indeed.

February 14, 2009 6:52 pm

I was so disappointed with the Kirk and Pike Captains in Chairs figures. Smudged Starfleet insignias….chipped paint on the chairs. And these are supposed to be new? How many mail orders do you have to place before you get a clean copy? I give up.

February 14, 2009 6:59 pm

ummmm….that mirror kirk figure looks like he has the romulan eyebrows of the enterprise incident version… also the pike bust looks more like the new kirk with chris PINE’s real-life darker hair…
