A week ago we previewed the fall wave of Star Trek movie from Playmates, but Diamond Select Toys is still coming up with new Star Trek figures and toys as well. Today we have the latest news from DST with some newly announced figures, some confirmed delivery dates and more.
New figures coming to TRU
Toys R Us is getting another DST exclusive in the form of a Kang action figure. Available now for preorder $13.99 is an exclusive 7" action figure of Kang as he appeared in "Day of the Dove" which will be available in October.
Also in October, Toys R Us will have re-issues of Diamond Select Mirror Kirk and Mirror Spock 7" figures, featuring the characters in their alternative universe costumes. These are also $13.99 and available for pre-order at the ToysRUs site:
"WNMHGB" Sulu shipping
The Blu-ray Star Trek Season One sets included an offer for a free Hikaru Sulu (from "Where No Man Has Gone Before") action figure from DST (by sending in a certificate and $7.50 for shipping and handling). According to DST, the figures are ready to ship and fans who placed their orders early should start getting the items soon. Sulu comes with a phaser and communicator. The sculpt is very nice, showing a very young Sulu in a detailed paint scheme. The uniform, scene only in The Cage/Menagerie and WNMHGB episodes joins the already available Kirk and Spock in such outfits. The offer is valid until January 2010, so be sure to send in your certificates.
Wrath of Khan communicator coming X-Mas season
TrekMovie has also confirmed that the previously announced Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan Communicator role playing toy and the USS Enterprise NCC 1701 B ship toy are scheduled to begin shipping during the holiday season for 2009.
TWOK communicator coming by the end of 2009
Enterprise B coming by the end of 2009
Borg wave de-assimilated
Diamond Select Toys giveth and they taketh away. DST have confirmed with TrekMovie that their previously announced wave of Borg figures, including 7 of 9, have all been cancelled, due to lack of pre-orders relative to the cost of the figures (and more specifically the alcoves). DST is rethinking the line and may end up re-assimilating the Borg into their offerings in the future
Pre-ordering these figures was futile
Enterprise D ships have arrived – review tomorrow
Finally the USS Enterprise D ships (both regular and "All Good Things" variant) have arrived. Tomorrow TrekMovie will reviews of both of these highly anticipated items. We will have high res pictures and video, but here is a quick preview.
