ToyFair 09: First Look At New Star Trek Key Chains + More Playmates ST09 Toy Images February 18, 2009

by John Tenuto , Filed under: Star Trek (2009 film),TNG,TOS,Toys , trackback

Want to carry around an Enterprise in your pocket? Toy Fair is the gift that keeps on giving. Today we have details on the Basic Fun line of Star Trek key chains that have been revealed, covering classic and new movie designs. Plus there are even more packaging images for Playmates line of Star Trek movie toys.
 

 

Trek is Basic Fun
Basic Fun, a company known for quality regular and electronic keychains, are adding Star Trek to their roster of licensed products which include such popular other lines such as Star Wars and Pokemon. The Star Trek line will feature key chains of both ships and technology. The first Basic Fun will have four items from ‘classic’ Trek: USS Enterprise NCC 1701 (TOS), USS Enterprise NCC 1701 D, Klingon D7 Battlecruiser, and a TOS Communicator.

In addition Basic Fun is doing one keychain based on the USS Enterprise from the 2009 movie. Of note is that this keychain uses the same black packaging design as the Playmates movie toys, showing that the movie has its own ‘unified packaging’ (seen below), like the ‘classic’ shows do (seen above).

No confirmed details on pricing or availability, but these items tend to be around $11 and should be out by Summer, probably around the time of the release of the new Star Trek movie.
 

Playmates packaging detail
Speaking of Playmates Toys, Action-figure.com also has a detailed set of pictures of the fronts, backs, and sides of some the new Playmates Star Trek movie toys, including a few of the "Galaxy Series" of 3.75 figures. Each Galaxy figure comes with part of either the Bridge or Transporter playsets. Both those sets come with a basic set up and are ‘completed’ by buying the figures. These images show how the pieces for the sets will be identified (note each figure always comes with the same playset piece). The packaging images also reveal how some of the playset functionality works.

1. Spock Of Ages - February 18, 2009

BUENO! ME GUSTAAAA!

2. ryan - February 18, 2009

cool!

3. Picard's barber - February 18, 2009

From the top down angle, those key chains of the original E and the new E are not that different. It just looks like the Enterprise gained a little weight since the 60’s.

4. Katie G. - February 18, 2009

John:

I’m new at this. Where do these things go on sale? Are they in Canada?

5. Will - February 18, 2009

Alright, more non-2009 Trek merch that I’ll buy… still waiting for something to shock me into buying the 2009 merch, though I do dig how they did this transporter room playset VS the TNG one… although, I may get a similar effect by making noises myself and placing cups over my figures and going “Where did it go… PEEK-A-BOO!!! There they are!!!”

So far, Transporter room is the only 2009 trek toy that I think I might get.

And again, what up with the delta being so… janky?

6. GARY - February 18, 2009

WEEE they look sweet!!!

7. Hat Rick - February 18, 2009

Ah, to be 8 again and be able to play with these action figures and their playsets all day. :-)

8. Enc - February 18, 2009

does any one else think the keychains look like the ol’ micromachines.

9. sfdebris - February 18, 2009

please can everyone, click on the link above and watch my star trek reviews.

10. german - February 18, 2009

micromachines! yes they look like the same

11. Alan Hsiao - February 19, 2009

Those nacelles are so ungainly on the new enterprise, and why are kirk and spock featured on the TNG memorabilia. This is not for star trek fans i am assuming.

12. thorsten - February 19, 2009

While Spock Primes comes with a Transporter room part included,
Scotty brings a piece of the bridge along…

13. AJ - February 19, 2009

9: I watched one. Advice: A review of a 45 minute show which lasts 10+ minutes is too much. 10 minutes would do for an entire season arc. Per ep., one to two minutes, yay or nay, should be the goal.

Good commentary, but just too much time to spend.

14. Devon - February 19, 2009

#11 – “why are kirk and spock featured on the TNG memorabilia. This is not for star trek fans i am assuming.”

Yes. They MUST get the packaging perfect or I will boycott and turn my Trekkie card in!

15. SilverExpress57 - February 19, 2009

That delta on all of the packaging is really bugging me! I don’t think it is like that in movie, based on the stills I’ve seen. How could they get the logo of the movie so wrong!? Sigh.

16. THE WILD MAN OF BORNEO - February 19, 2009

#11 -“Those nacelles are so ungainly on the new enterprise”

Yeah those nacelles are so unproportional. It’s just an unattractive and weak looking ship compared to the TOS and especially TMP ship.

17. SilverExpress57 - February 19, 2009

That deformed delta on all of the ST09 toys is really bugging me!

18. THE WILD MAN OF BORNEO - February 19, 2009

#15- “How could they get the logo of the movie so wrong!?”

just the logo? have you seen the trailers?

19. SilverExpress57 - February 19, 2009

How come the delta is ‘deformed’ on all of the ST09 toys?

20. SilverExpress57 - February 19, 2009

Sorry for the 3 posts. They weren’t showing up for me, so I thought I’d just try again. Apparently they all went through! Oops!

21. Semi-Normal - February 19, 2009

#16: You know… I’ve stuck up for the new design of the ship, but the more angles I see of it, the less I like it.

The nacelles don’t protrude AT ALL from their struts, and they’re too close together. The end result is that the “wings” of the ship (which is what the nacelles are… or “arms,” perhaps) look drawn in and make the ship appear weak.

The Constitution-refit remains my go-to ship.

22. SilverExpress57 - February 19, 2009

#18 I’m not going to get into an argument about the new visual vision(if you will), or story of the new Star Trek movie.

However, the shape of the delta on the packaging is wrong when compared to the one that actually appears in the movie.

23. Matt - February 19, 2009

Yeah the new Enterprise was something I hoped/expected to grow on me, but so far the more of it I see, the less I like it.

24. MiniKirk - February 19, 2009

22 has a point. Compared to the movie, it’s a bit round. But still, this is Playmates, they’ve done a great job so far, and it could be worse. There could be no merchandise for us to collect.

25. Digginjim - February 19, 2009

I agree with some of the other comments re: the new enterprise. I love the TOS ship and the 1701 refit from the movies, but the new enterprise just looks squished and ungainly… I’m sure the film will be great… just an opinion..

26. Quarksbartender - February 19, 2009

I need a new keychain all the ones Yuji brought me from Japan are kind of beat up

27. thorsten - February 19, 2009

While the big Delta on the boxes is a bit distorted on the obese side, they got all the tiny in the pattern ones right…

28. KevinA Melbourne Australia - February 19, 2009

24. But at the same time, why use w wrong shape? The delta should be the same as the movie which is the same as it has been from TOS.

It’s just bad design acused by who ever authorised the packaging not knowing that this is important. You won’t get McDonald’s accepting a lower flattened arches. Years ago Paramount wouldn’t release movies in a single standard on VCD because the halo would appear oval in some markets.

Branding and Badging are very important for corporate identity. As we same downunder…someone should be kicked up the bum for this stuff up.

They really should fix it before they release the items.

29. KevinA Melbourne Australia - February 19, 2009

That’s:-
It’s just bad design CAUSED by who ever authorised the packaging …

Damn spell checker

30. Smittmaestro - February 19, 2009

I like the 1701 the comm and the movie E.

Question is will the comm light up and make noise?

-cs™

31. G-Boss - February 19, 2009

Interesting.

32. jeffery wright - February 19, 2009

are they implying that mccoy and chekov were cadets at the same time?

http://74.52.193.82/events/main.php?g2_itemId=135210

are they treating the crew like they were all from the same graduating class?

the enterprise mission patch is really malformed, but hey, if they’re insisting that its the starfleet symbol before the achievements of kirk’s command then why not, i suppose?

33. Ben Luna - February 19, 2009

Anyone noticed how Scotty has part “B-11″ and there are a total of 18 bridge components? GIven that we’ve got 10 figures in the Galaxy collection and some of those already contain parts of the transporter so how is Playmates going to pull this off? Will we be buying 3 Captain Kirks and 4 Spocks for example, as Playmates will have the parts to the bridge and transporter mixed randomly among the first wave or will we be waiting months until wave two to complete the sets?

34. thorsten - February 19, 2009

Kirks Bonus appears to be a Silver Starfleet Emblem figure stand…

35. thorsten - February 19, 2009

But that is the Warp Collection.

36. thorsten - February 19, 2009

from the Transporter Room Box:

Recreate the entire USS Enterprise Transporter Room by collecting additional pieces inside Galaxy Series Figure Packs!

37. Roddy - February 19, 2009

Do you think the keychains are metal or plastic?

38. Chingatchkook - February 19, 2009

While the keychains look kinda cool, I’m not sure that I would want my keys on one. If you were to have your keys in your pocket and turn the wrong way, one could impale something important on a warp engine….

39. Bradley1701 - February 19, 2009

The way they’ve marketed the packaging with the “stylistic” delta shield and what not may not be perfect, but these are toys for kids, folks LOL They are trying to appeal to children and I don’t think they are nearly as picky…

40. frederick - February 19, 2009

In my experience items like this attached to keyschains break off at the attachement point very quickly during use. These are only good for collecting and not using.

41. Captain Dunsel - February 19, 2009

The communicator keychain is the only one that I can imagine surviving for long in an actual pocket. (Just don’t take it to school here in Cobb County, Georgia…)

42. I'm dead Jim - February 19, 2009

No starship’s shields can withstand my set of keys! :-) Cute ships but leave the key chain off. What’s the point?

43. Captain Crawford - February 19, 2009

I like these toys. Not only are they a fitting likeness of the new cast, but they also have a passing resemblance to the original characters. Proof that Abrams’ casting director knew what he was doing.

44. crazydaystrom - February 19, 2009

For the heck of it I’ll get the original E then see about having it embedded in a block of lucite.

45. Some Dude on the Internet - February 19, 2009

Kids today also collect “key chains” and hang them off their backpacks. My niece has about 50 of the things.

46. Kirk's Toupée - February 19, 2009

I remember taking my lads to Florida and bought them a communicator key chain and a phaser keychain whilst in Disneyworld……..they were both broke within 10 minutes, quality was appalling, though I think the communicator ended up in a cup of coca cola before it’s final demise..

So, hope the quality is better with these……..

47. Kirk's Toupée - February 19, 2009

Yes, #45, same thing in this country, it’s ok for girls to do but when I see lads and middle-aged men doing it, it looks very suspect–

48. Joseph Coatar - February 19, 2009

#9: Great job on your voyager and enterprise reviews! Very funny stuff indeed, I love how you’re so merciless toward neelix, looking foward to additional reviews

49. cpelc - February 19, 2009

the packaging on the new E keychain reads.

“From the Hit Move Star Trek XI”

They must have a time ship like Spock.

50. Weerd1 - February 19, 2009

33- I think you are right. We have to wait for 22 different figures to be released in order to complete the sets. I hope they package less important pieces (like the goofy standup viewscreens) with less important figures (anyone in cadet uniform). I plan to customize my bridge so if the movie is good, then it’s close enough, and if the movie is bad, then I’m making my own red railing…

51. I'm dead Jim - February 19, 2009

Does the Shat get money every time his likeness (as Kirk) is used on packaging like this? That should soften the blow of not being in the new movie, if it’s so.

52. Patrick - February 19, 2009

I think I would get the original TOS keychain to hang from the rear view mirror of my car and replace the little AMT ship I have hanging from the mirror now.

I also have a previous TOS communicator keychain that makes the right sound when you flip the lid and it lights up. The new one pictured above looks nicer though the one I have was pretty decent in its day. Don’t remember the brand name, lost the packaging years ago. Seemed like they also made a really nice tricorder.

The more I see of the 09 movie Enterprise, the less I like it. I tried to like it, but just can’t. The original 1960’s TV Enterprise still looks more modern to me than this upcoming movie version. I’m not crazy about any of the design aesthetic of this movie but I’ll give it a chance based on the story and Nimoy’s participation in it.

53. Michelle - February 19, 2009

Oh the key chains look nice! I’ll definitely be getting one though I wish they had a Romulan warbird as a choice.

54. Izbot - February 19, 2009

Why did they screw up the delta shield so much??

55. AJ - February 19, 2009

I’m expecting the vast majority of this new Trek merch will end up in bargain bins by Jan 2010. When I did my Xmas shopping, “Iron Man” and “Dark Night” stuff was already old news, and big in the bins.

And seriously, how many keychains will be sold? Adults don’t need them, and the latchkey kid demographic is not a business. Also, having a pointy ship AND keys in my jeans pocket would be extremely uncomfortable.

The one thing we have yet to hear about is the video/PC game tie-in to the film. These tie-ins sell. Is there any news as to who is doing it, and what it will be?

56. LE - February 19, 2009

As an interesting side note. the Enterprise D keychain looks absolutely craptacular, with absolutely no texture on the back of the neck and with only a poorly fonted registry number on the primary hull.

This is because it seems they re-used the exact same version of the D used in the japanese Furuta candy toys, which were pretty high quality excluding the D herself.

57. Jason P Hunt - co-creator of COMET TALES - February 19, 2009

I think we’re seeing just the first wave of figures. If they follow the Star Wars template (which seems to be the case on everything…), there will most likely be twelve versions of Kirk before all is said and done. Plus all the secondary characters. And the background aliens. And all of the Starfleet extras who have a line in the movie.

Think about it. The Rancor Keeper has been revised and released three or four times by now?

There will be plenty of TREK figures to complete the sets, I’m sure.

58. richpit - February 19, 2009

People, as someone already said…I’m sure the keychains are more for collecting that actually using on your keys / in your pocket.

Man, some of you people have to pull the armed photon torpedo out of your butt and quit griping. They’re TOYS for Pete’s sake. T-O-Y-S. And pretty cool looking ones at that, for ~11 bucks.

59. T'Cal - February 19, 2009

#49: “the packaging on the new E keychain reads.

“From the Hit Move Star Trek XI”

They must have a time ship like Spock.”

I saw that, too! The history of the future proves it! The movie is going to be great!! I told all you naysayers!!

60. Michael - February 19, 2009

I’m thoroughly confused! Is the Playset avail complete w/ a bonus Kirk…or do we have to buy 7+ figures to build the playset? This would be maddening trying to score all 7-9 figures unless you bought a case online to form the entire bridge/transporter sets. Reason # 5 I won’t be buying PM toys again, the hassle of hunting down pieces, over a complete playset sold as is is a HUGE turnoff!
Don’t get me wrong, the playsets look cool, but I’m tired of jumping though hoops!

61. Daniel Broadway - February 19, 2009

Here is another look at the Enterprise toy.

63. Daoud - February 19, 2009

#32 Some of the crew are from the same graduating class, some are not. Each has a different backstory.

Uhura seems to be with Pike’s Enterprise project already, given the bar scene. Perhaps she’s there to take the shuttle to the Academy?

McCoy is already an M.D. who for reasons unknown (I hope it remains the death of his father, plus his wife leaving him and taking Joanna!!) is signing up and thus going to the Academy.

Chekov is a young whiz kid inwented by Russia.

Kirk is a Dylan-esque character who perhaps started at the Academy at age 17, but dropped out and went back to Iowa. Pike we know challenges him in a later year to get back in.

So that all four graduate from the Academy in the same group assigned to Enterprise isn’t unreasonable. It simply makes it clear that Pike assembled the crew of the Enterprise. That would have even made sense in 1966. We know Kirk has a lot to do with crewing the Enterprise leading up to TMP: he just hadn’t planned on captaining it, he had selected the young Will Decker. Thus Pike selecting Kirk makes full sense. The rapido promotion to captaincy doesn’t make sense right now, but I’m sure the Supremes have a throwaway line or explanation: perhaps Kirk went thru the Academy at 17, but was kicked out due to the KM simulation at 21…. strangely this is making sense with each passing week.

64. thorsten - February 19, 2009

@61…

thanks Daniel. Looks like she got sucked into warp without the tiniest shudder… And those OleBlueNacelles of her ;))

65. New Horizon - February 19, 2009

61. Daniel Broadway – February 19, 2009

I wish I could like this design more, but the lines…they just don’t make any sense. Parts of it remind me of a dolphin. They were going for realism in this movie, but why design something that doesn’t look realistically proportioned? Doesn’t matter so much in space, but still…it just looks crunched together and hunched up…not graceful like the previous designs. I would even take the enterprise E over this.

66. NCC-73515 - February 19, 2009

My love now has wings
slender, tethered things
without grace in upswept curve
and tapered tip

67. Tony Whitehead - February 19, 2009

Welcome to the “HOW TO BREAK A TOY IN SIXTY SECONDS” show.

68. thorsten - February 19, 2009

Will it blend?

69. Brad - February 19, 2009

I want one of those keychains of the new Enterprise!

70. Praetor Tal - February 19, 2009

I do actually need a new keychain…

71. Jorg Sacul - February 19, 2009

Back in the 70s Lincoln Enterprises sold a pewter Enterprise keychain. If I were to get credits for straightening those nacelles, I’d be certified a SpaceDock.

I have the feeling these keychains will end up as rearview mirror ornaments for my van.

72. Check The Circuit - February 19, 2009

Here’s a crazy idea…before we get overly critical of the new Enterprise design, why don’t we wait until we see it in the movie? We’ve only see one official still (not including the pictures of the toys) and a handful of shots in the trailers that didn’t last more than a second. Maybe the new design will grow on us once we’ve gotten to know her.

It’s like comparing the home run stats of Babe Ruth to a kid that’s just starting to play t-ball.

The original E has 40+ years of familiarity and the refit E is closing in on 30 years. (That’s scary!) Let’s give the new girl a chance.

73. johnny - February 19, 2009

and lets be honest bout play mates toys remember their tos phaser hmm. here is a crazy idea maybe these toys aren’t the exact same as the props………………just a crazy idea

74. strangelove - February 19, 2009

cmon
wait till the movie comes out, and whe see the big E
i think this is the most beautifull enterprise!!
i watcht the old movies, end the E look like a giant Submarine from behind…and not very slik!!!!

75. Daniel Broadway - February 19, 2009

I think the new E will look better than we think. The first official image we saw of it was horrible because of perspective and lens distortion.

I think after seeing the views of the toy, we can see that it’s closer to the proportions of the original E. Not exactly the same sure, but closer than we were lead to believe in the first image.

I still think the secondary hull looks a little on the small side, but I might be mistaken. It’s different for sure, but it’s just something we’ll have to get used to.

I hated the new Batmobile when Batman Begins came out, but after seeing it in action, it’s awesome.

76. thorsten - February 19, 2009

@74…

She is a beautyful ship indeed.

77. Capt. of the USS Anduril - February 19, 2009

Gahh! Why no out of box shots of the new E?! I wanna make sure she looks absolutely fantastic. Though, I already pre-ordered it…

And that little keychain of the new E is JUST what I wanted! I wanted a little Enterprise I can carry around with me, and that’s just what the captain ordered, especially since they don’t do micro machines anymore.

78. bill hiro - February 19, 2009

Wow, I will pass on the $11 keychains. Yikes. I thought we were in a recession?

79. William Kirk - February 19, 2009

61 – link to the new ship

As I thought till today, the ship is horrible and very disproportional.

80. Captain Dunsel - February 19, 2009

Poor, lonely little Klingon D7 Battlecruiser keychain. 77 Posts and none of these meanies want to talk about *you*? Just that vile Federation ship?

Well don’t cry – I’ll talk about you. *I’ll* take you home with me…

81. Loskene - February 19, 2009

I have to agree with a startling number of comments here, the new Enterprise is a difficult one to like. The nacelles are just too close together, and the whole secondary hull has terrible proportions compared to the original. I tried hard to like it, even after the first image was released, but it seems impossible at this point. Hopefully the film will change my mind

82. Darth Ballz - February 19, 2009

The Delta shield is big, the Enterprise sucks, etc ?????

Thats why its hard for some people to like Star Trek fans, again this movie is not for you because even after all the bitching about little stuff this movie is for NEW fans that don’t pick apart every little thing about how this is not “REAL” Trek. The same people who are whining about the little stuff are the ones who will see the movie 10+ times to find even more stuff to bitch about. Its just a movie and enjoy it for what it is……..

Darth ” To Big Nacelles” Ballz

83. krikzil (aka Lixy) - February 19, 2009

And then some people enjoy themselves by bitching about people bitching. ;)

84. steve2 - February 19, 2009

Wouldn’t any of the Enterprises be push button start? Well, maybe the NX01 required a key. Not sure.

85. AdmNaismith - February 19, 2009

I see the play action of the transporter room hasn’t changed since the 70’s.

Does the figure stay in the tube, or does it pop out the back so you can ‘play down on the planet’ before materializing back on the ship?

86. New Horizon - February 19, 2009

82. Darth Ballz – February 19, 2009

That’s by far an over simplification. I quite enjoy everything else about this movie. The design doesn’t make a whole lot of sense artistically…it’s style over substance. The proportions feel out of whack and doesn’t give the ship the same sense of grace and forward motion that it once had. Some of the mockups that brought the ship back into proportion were bang on and really sold the stylistic choices…but as it stands, the proportions really throw this ship off the rails. It’s hunched…looks like it needs a massage.

87. bill hiro - February 19, 2009

“Thats why its hard for some people to like Star Trek fans, again this movie is not for you because even after all the bitching about little stuff this movie is for NEW fans that don’t pick apart every little thing about how this is not “REAL” Trek.

I don’t get people like this. The existence of a talkback feature inherently invites people to talk back. So you’re saying people should only talk back if they have something nice, complimentary, positive, and enthusiastic to say? “Everything that has Star trek on it is GREAT! We should be thankful we’re getting anything so we must reflexively like everything! No critical thinking needed or wanted! I have blind faith that J.J. will make everything wonderful, from the movie to the keychains!” No thanks.

88. MC1701B - February 19, 2009

75. “Lens distortion?” The special effects for the new movie are CGI. There is no “lens distortion” unless it was deliberately programmed in.

The new E looks like ass, and it will end up being exactly as important as Daniel Craig’s hair. If the rest of the movie is wonderful, we’ll all collectively ignore it. If the movie sucks, it’ll be one more thing to throw on the pile.

89. Darth Ballz - February 19, 2009

83. krikzil (aka Lixy) – February 19, 2009
“And then some people enjoy themselves by bitching about people bitching. ;)”

Yes, when every other comment here is whining about things that have nothing too do with characters or story, sure. I find it odd about all the complaints reguarding the ship and ratial boxes but the original series looked so cheap yet is the one most loved?

86. New Horizon – February 19, 2009

“That’s by far an over simplification. I quite enjoy everything else about this movie. The design doesn’t make a whole lot of sense artistically…it’s style over substance.

It’s hunched…looks like it needs a massage.”

The Enterprise-D was far the fuglyiest design of any Trek ship but people got over it. Again characters and story are more important and if you look at the new Galactica thats were the effort is put into, not a slope or design choice. If that really means that much to some people then bitching about it is a great time waster…….

90. Daniel Broadway - February 19, 2009

Anyone notice how the packaging says “From the hit movie Star Trek XI”?

I believe the official title is “Star Trek” and I find it odd a piece of official merchandise would say “XI” on it.

91. Enterprise - February 19, 2009

Uh, did they just reissue the 1990 toys? These look bad.

“@74…
She is a beautyful ship indeed.”

Two words on the keychains: Micro Machines
And why are Kirk and Spock on the Enterprise D packaging?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder…
But Ugly goes all the way to the Warp Core.

Visions of mass crap danced in me head.

@94…

You’ll see!

28 – You’re missing the point entirely. IT’S JUST THE PACKAGE of the toys. It’s NOT the actual movie itself. Besides, guess what? YOU ALL were still able to recognize it as the delta shield so it doesn’t matter. Since you recognized it, they achieved their goals. To add to all that these are kiddie toys. As in, for kids. Kids don’t give two tugs of a dead dogs cock how their packages look, as long as the toys are cool. With this in mind: IT DOESN’T MATTER.

You know, for years now I’ve wanted little versions of Star Trek ships on keychains, not to attach to my keys and keep in my pocket, but rather to dangle them from my car’s rearview mirror…

My dreams have come true!

#61 That angle should be the best angle on the ship, but in this case it looks even MORE fugly than the other angles we’ve seen.

I’ve tried to like it but I just can’t. The design fails on far too many levels.

If there ever was the definition of “designed by committee” it is the new Enterprise.

I suppose Bridge Component B4 will be packaged with the figure of

I think the new ship looks like it was designed for a Japanese anime version of Star Trek… unrealistic and distorted. I keep expecting it to “transform” into something.

I never cared that much for the “D” either, as I felt it was way out of balance with that huge saucer, and tiny nacelles, but I learned to enjoy it because it wasn’t supposed to be the original ship. In fact, when I saw the “1701 E” for the first time, I thought,”Now why couldn’t this have been the design used in the Next Gen series?”, because they got the engines and saucer back in balance.

I can understand wanting to update the look of the 1701, but such radical changes in the proportions of the components makes it look ungainly. I miss the grace and swept out engine “wings”.

It may seem like an unimportant matter to some here, but to me, the Enterprise is as much a character as any of her crew, and in this case, they sure picked an ugly new actor to reprise the role.

I am so going to get all of them. But does anyone know when there coming on sale in the UK? I don’t really want to buy them over the net.

If they come out over hear i’ll be able to get my little brother them for his birthday.
