Trek Collectibles Spring Preview: Funko Bobbleheads and Vinyl Figures

In recent months there have been a lot of new Star Trek products announced, so each day for the next week TrekMovie will take a closer look at one line coming this Spring. Today we look at the new Funko Original Series-themed bobble-heads and vinyl figures, with exclusive higher resolution images and sound files.


Star Trek Wacky Wobblers
In December, Trekmovie revealed the news about the line of Funko talking Star Trek bobbleheads and vinyl figures. Funko has the licensee to some of the most impressive franchises including Star Wars and Marvel Comics, and now Trek.

The Funko line of Wacky-Wobblers bobble-heads are all 6 1/2" tall and retail for $11 bucks. The Kirk and Spock versions also come with sound-files, making them the first-ever ‘talking’ Star Trek bobbleheads. The Wacky Wobblers should be coming out in March or April.

Star Trek ‘Quogs’ Vinyl Figures
In addition to the bobble-heads, Funko has the first ever Star Trek vinyl figures (sometimes called ‘super deformed’ figures), based on the new Star Trek QUOGS design. The vinyl figures are nice because they are something that younger fans could enjoy which is something Star Trek merchandising needs. However, the are cool enough that, like the Star Wars Galactic Hero line, these items will also likely generate a great deal of interest from collectors, too, because of their funky and stylized design.

The first three will be Kirk, Spock and an Orion girl. Each figure is 5 1/2" tall and will retail for $11. These are actually Funko’s first foray into ‘urban vinyl’ figures, but these kinds of figures are growing in popularity and have been done for Star Wars and other licenses by other companies.

I feel the need to commend Funko on not only a fun line, but excellent packaging. While adhering to the unified design elements, the Funko packaging includes images of the characters featured, and has a very cool look. This kind of item will be noticeable on the store shelf and will look great for those who do not open their toys. These, though, are too fun not to open!

First Funko Trek wave in stores by March/April – available for pre-order now
Funko products are available at many major retail and grocery stores and the Star Trek line should be available in May. All seven new Star Trek Funko products can be pre-ordered now at Entertainment Earth (note, EE list delivery as May, but Funko tell TrekMovie they should be available by March or April).

Coming Next – Nodniks

In June Funko is releasing a number of new smaller-sized ‘Nodnik’ bobble-head two packs, including two Trek packs. Each figure is 3 3/4" tall and you get two for $11. The Nodniks are even more stylized than the ‘Wacky Wobblers,’ here are some sketches of the Trek sets.

Original Kirk doesn’t have blue eyes!!

February 21, 2009 1:31 pm

Not bad.

February 21, 2009 1:32 pm

I love those bobbleheads. Especially the Gorn… harrg grrrk

February 21, 2009 1:33 pm

And why does this bobblehead resemble Kirk more than the DST Kirk figures?

February 21, 2009 1:42 pm

To all of it.
Really nice to see that the merchandising arm of CBS is allowing every imaginable licensee a stab at turning out exploitative garbage.

February 21, 2009 1:47 pm

Right on, #5, MrAtoz. Couldn’t agree more.

I was just saying to my wife the other day “I sure wish I had a gorn bobble head. I have wanted one since I was a little shaver’.

February 21, 2009 1:50 pm

I never buy these collectable toys and things, but I really like these. This is fun stuff.

Yet, you take the time to disparage something your fellow fans might enjoy.

February 21, 2009 2:00 pm

Ha, exactly – we’ve got this week’s ‘Spot the Mistake’ winner.

They.just.can’t .FOOLUS!!

February 21, 2009 2:01 pm

Does the Gorn blink?

February 21, 2009 2:03 pm

Hmmm… not exactly to my taste, although my kids will like the QUOG stuff.

But hey, Star Trek goes mainstream – it can’t be a bad thing.

@ 10 – LOVE those Shatnerific pauses!!! LMFAO!!!

February 21, 2009 2:25 pm

Actually that Kirk Bobblehead’s head is as big as Shatner’s!

Oh sorry forgive, it’s exploitative garbage what was I thinking…


February 21, 2009 2:28 pm

I like the Bobblehead packaging.

#5 and #13

Your comments about the being “exploitive” are offensive to those people who like them. You presume and imply that if someone else likes these, then they are allowing themselves to be exploited. If you don’t like them, fine. If feel some need to tell others you don’t like them, fine. Don’t do it by de facto insulting others. I’ll tell you what, when I am being exploited, I will let you know.

February 21, 2009 2:43 pm

I neither presume, imply nor infer.
You, however… deduce… and I might add, incorrectly

February 21, 2009 2:47 pm

Apparently, they’ll put the Star Trek name on any kind of crap!

I’m disgusted and revolted.

for kids these are great but CBS have done a shitty job at giving us companies that do really decent items for the older fans of both the original franchise and the up-coming movie.

I don’t want no wacky wobbler or some Nicknack??

February 21, 2009 3:10 pm
People who complain about the merchandising make me laugh, between sneers. Excuse me, ladies and gentlemen, but STAR TREK is a *product*. Okay? It is a piece of produced entertainment that exists ONLY because people exist who will spend money, or who will watch ad-supported television, to see it. Without that simple and extremely basic fact, it would never have been created; and the more potential monetary value it has in generating spinoffs, merchandising and other revenue streams only ensures that variations on it will continue to be produced. Perhaps you missed the following simple point, but I’ll spell it out for you: Gene Roddenberry was a television producer who was in the business to make a living; and he himself was not above making whatever extra money he could out of whatever spinoffs he could get a piece of (Lincoln Enterprises, anyone?). There is absolutely nothing wrong with this, any more than there is anything wrong with Trek’s current owners making as much as they can from it. Star Trek ain’t the Bible, children (and need I remind you that plenty of money continues to be made from THAT property, too?); it’s a very cool fictional universe that makes millions of people happy, but it is not some sacred, untouchable Holy Writ whose shining purity is being dirtied up by grasping moneygrubbers. It also goes without saying that people who sneer at the bobbleheads and the bath towels and the Starfleet logo toilet paper are probably only too willing… Read more »

I’m 42 years old. I like the Quogs. I cannot quantify this. I just like them. I might buy them, but they do not have a high priority.

I post this to articulate that stereotypes do not work, not everything fits into categories of age.

February 21, 2009 3:31 pm

Speaking of blue eyes….Has the Orcmister explained how by changing the past and diverging into a different yet similar universe changed the color of a Jimmy boys eyes from brown to blue? Did Nero’s changing of the timeline somehow get Mommy Kirk knocked up by a different feller?

February 21, 2009 3:52 pm

The Gorn one is the coolest!

February 21, 2009 3:55 pm

What? No classic Gorn quotes? “Earthling!”

February 21, 2009 4:03 pm

My bobbleheads are better (lol)
LOVE the Gorn though!
: )

I’m just not into these. I guess they’re some fans that are though. My money is on the DST Tricorders and WOK Phaser!

BTW: Doesn’t that Funko vinyl figure of Kirk look like George Doobya Bush?


February 21, 2009 4:04 pm

“They’ll put the Star Trek name on anything”


Spare me. Some of you guys are acting like Star Trek is something other than CONSUMER PRODUCT, when that’s precisely what it is.

EDIT: I’m not saying anymore because I just read post # 21. Right on SB.

February 21, 2009 4:04 pm


I think with eye colors it’s just one of those minor details that has no importance whatsoever with Star Trek or the character Kirk and best to be ignored.

February 21, 2009 4:10 pm

I suggest to those who do no like to collect trek products, to steer clear of the article about Trek products. We have a number of them lined up this week and the carping about ‘exploitation’ is already old, and will become trolling. Personally I don’t collect star trek stuff, but I like to look at the products and I know that many people do collect and we are bringing them the news.

No one is making anyone buy anything, therefore no one is being exploited

If you are going to try and be witty, utilize your words properly. I did not deduce anything. I expressed an intrepretation, not a deduction.

February 21, 2009 4:16 pm

I LOVE Star Trek merchandise.
Star Trek is indeed a business, and I’ll never forget the joy and excitement I felt when I got my first Enterprise model or toy phaser. If Star Trek is to survive then “new’ kids need to play with “new” toys.
My only complaint is that the likenesses aren’t great sometimes, but that is a problem I have with the artists, NOT the idea of making cool Star Trek toys. I’m very happy that companies like Art Asylum have really addressed this and have subsequently raised the bar on quality.
With all this buzz going around the bottom line is “How cool is it to be a Star Trek fan right now?”
: )

February 21, 2009 4:32 pm

oh to see the old klingons again

February 21, 2009 4:35 pm

The Gorn is cute.

February 21, 2009 4:42 pm

I really can’t see the worth in these toys.

If some of you guys can, that’s great. But they just seem like overkill.

3 different lines of cutesy caracitures?!

I like(d) Trek for it’s realism, consistency, and adventure. When I was little, I bought ships, Figures and Roleplaying Accessories.

Now I’m older, I buy ships and maybe roleplaying accessories.

What market of any appreciable size is there for this stuff? Especially in the grips of a recession, why would anyone want this periphery licence fluff?!

Love the Orion figure.

Those “Quogs” are repulsive.
I like the Wacky Wobblers, though.

February 21, 2009 5:14 pm

Curse my connection. Triple post… sorry.

February 21, 2009 5:22 pm


“Speaking of blue eyes….Has the Orcmister explained how by changing the past and diverging into a different yet similar universe changed the color of a Jimmy boys eyes from brown to blue?”

I’m sure that this not a thing to care about … or do you have an explanation why saavik changed so much between wrath of khan and search for spock … I mean … some sort of HORRIBLE accident … mysterious genetic experiments … or wait, I know it … it was something that the genesis planet did.

No sorry, thats all wrong, Kirstie Alley didn’t want to play her anymore and they casted a different actress, thats the explanation …

Decloaking . . .

I only collect the eps and movies, but those bobbleheads just might end up on my self.


February 21, 2009 5:33 pm

Yikes. None for me thanks. Still waiting on the 3 3/4 inch… Maybe someone will do a special edition TOS bridge to fit the new figs!

February 21, 2009 5:36 pm
February 21, 2009 6:37 pm

5 1/2 inch is twice the size of the Galactic Heroes. I am bummed out. I wanted these to be in scale.

February 21, 2009 6:47 pm


Turning STAR TREK characters into bobbleheads is NOT the same as, say, turning Jesus Christ into an action figure or making a crucifix glow in the dark.

“Tacky” TREK merchandise has been around, since, oh… 1966!

(Besides, bobbleheads are FUN and I, for one, can’t wait to stick that talking Captain Kirk on my desk at work. So there!)

February 21, 2009 6:48 pm

Just plain dumb

February 21, 2009 7:51 pm

I don’t collect Trek stuff, either, but these bobbleheads are cute and fun to me. I just don’t see where the harm is in that. You don’t wanna buy ’em, don’t.

February 21, 2009 7:52 pm

Star Trek is geting so cute that it hurts my eyes.

February 21, 2009 9:03 pm

Although I do have to laugh:

Probably the most accurate William Shatner likeness yet for an action figure… and it winds up on a bobblehead! HA!

February 21, 2009 9:37 pm

Those “Quogs” figures or what ever they are, they irritate me, they’re just dumb, beyond it even, they make me want to hit things honestly.
