The Collective: New Star Trek/M&Ms Figurines & Gorn Statue Announced May 18, 2011

by John Tenuto , Filed under: Collectibles,Merchandise,TOS , trackback

Today The Collective returns with news of two newly announced Star Trek collectibles. First is a strangely cool Star Trek and M&Ms ‘mashup’ figurine collection from Hamilton. Plus Hollywood Collectibles have revealed their second Star Trek statue – a Gorn. Details and pictures below.

 

Hamilton M&M’s Star Trek Figurine Collection

Hamilton Collection has announced the first-ever M&M’S® brand Character figurines dressed as Star Trek characters. The first issue of the series will Red M&M dressed as Captain James T. Kirk. Each 4" tall figure is made of artist’s resin with hand-painted details.


Red M&M as Kirk is first of new series from Hamilton

The collection of M&M/STAR TREK figurines begins with Spokescandy Red as Captain James T. Kirk in Issue One, "To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before." The collection will continue with Issue Two, "Live Long & Prosper" (presumably an M&M dressed as Spock), which will be followed by Issue Three, "Bad News Gentlemen, I Melt For No One" (possibly a McCoy figure?). Additional figures will follow. Each issue costs $29.99. Ordering and more details at www.bradfordexchange.com.

Hollywood Collectibles Gorn Statue

Last fall I reported that Hollywood Collectibles Group were bringing back Stat Trek statues. Their first issue of a 1:6 scale Kirk in Chair statue is due by the end of June. But the company has just announced, their second Star Trek statue – a 1:6 scale Gorn (approx 13" tall). Like the Kirk statue, the Gorn statue is is constructed from heavyweight polystone and then hand painted..

The Gorn statue is limited to just 100 individually numbered pieces and retails for $159.95. The Gorns will begin shipping by the end of the year.

Gorn looks great! And Vasquez Rocks is in the background.

2. Jeff - May 18, 2011

They should do a salt & pepper shaker set that looks like McCoy’s medical instruments.

3. Commodore Mike of the Terran Empire - May 18, 2011

Looks very Nice. I wonder if they will do a M&M as a Red Shirt. Hmm That could be Dangerous. Love the Gorn. Looks good.

4. Drake1701 - May 18, 2011

I bet the ” I melt for no one” will be the green M&M (female) as Uhura.

5. Phil - May 18, 2011

Coming soon to a Big Lots! near you….

6. Dee - lvs moon' surface - May 18, 2011

OMG! … I loved it! … Captain Kirk M&M … I want it! ….mmmmmm!

:-) :-)

7. Tanner Waterbury - May 18, 2011

Error: You put WOK PHASER instead of communicator.

8. David - May 18, 2011

@2. Jeff – that would be very appropriate since the prop people on the original show used various salt and pepper shakers as his medical instruments.

9. Let Them Eat Plomeek Soup - May 18, 2011

Gimme the Gorn…NOW!

10. Red Dead Ryan - May 18, 2011

Love the M&M Kirk. The Gorn statue is cool, though I won’t buy it because its too expensive plus I have the Diamond Select figure. I also own the TWOK communicator. A bit anachronistic-looking, but very cool!

11. Charla - May 18, 2011

Very cool!! Gotta have…

12. Markonian - May 18, 2011

The Gorn looks gorgeous. Still hoping for some new model/toy ships anytime.

13. Buzz Cagney - May 18, 2011

I do hope Gorn feature in Trek ’12!

14. Jim Nightshade - May 18, 2011

so this reminds me when is the preview for this years trek hallmark ornaments?

15. Harry Ballz - May 19, 2011

In the next movie…how about having Kirk locked in a hand-to-hand fight with a Gorn except…….no CGI. Have the Gorn look EXACTLY like the one in TOS. Right up to having a zipper up the back of the lizard costume. Cool!

(hey, who is to say that they don’t look like that??)

16. Vultan - May 19, 2011

#15

Well, it would certainly look better than that CG Velociraptor from Enterprise. The original looked a little more T-rex to me.

17. Kirk, James T. - May 19, 2011

It just seems CBS are scraping the barrel, COME ON CBS – HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO HASBRO LEGO!!!!!

18. Weerd1 - May 19, 2011

…and again, no 2009 Trek merchandise. It’s nice to see TOS get some props, and CBS is all over the marketing, but where is Paramount teasing us for the next movie?

19. Andy Patterson - May 19, 2011

Gorn looks cool down to the Kirk homemade cannon. Nice touch. If I collected things line this I’d get one.

@15 sounds good to me Harry.

20. Kirk, James T. - May 19, 2011

@ 18 – As I understand it – CBS Consumer Products owns the merchandising rights to the movie(s) too.

21. VZX - May 19, 2011

I would love to have that Gorn. And I agree that I hope the Gorn are featured in a new movie. The Gorn appearance on Enterprise was very lame.

22. Michael - May 19, 2011

The M&M Kirk w/ Cmd. Chair is headed straight to Big Lots, bargain bins and closeouts all over USA. Yeeechhhhhhhh! Pure dreck!
The Gorn is cool, Communicator may have to score. I’ll pass on Spock cookie jar and enterprise salt/pepper shakers.

23. Phil - May 19, 2011

@22. I’m expecting to be in Vegas in September. I’ll stop by the M&M store and see if Capt. James M&M Kirk is still on the shelves…

24. Harry Ballz - May 19, 2011

16+19.

Then we’re agreed. Cool!

25. Woulfe - May 19, 2011

The copyright thing as far as Trek goes is like a puzzle w/ missing pieces, no one but no one seems to understand why or how it works withing a guide book to help make logic out of the whole mess

Paramount – can make Star Trek films only

CBS – can make EVERYTHING else

That simple enough for folks to understand ?

26. CmdrR - May 19, 2011

13″. That will look great in the tool shed, where I’ll be living if I spend 160 quatloos on a Gorn statue.

27. THX-1138 - May 19, 2011

M&M’s are fine. Gorn statue is neat.

But I am digging on the communicator. In all it’s goofy low-tech glory. Gottsta have. My wife got me a TMP phaser to go with my Wrath of Khan phaser for my birthday week (as I get older, that’s how I roll: birthday weeks). My daughter got me a command badge from the new movie and now I have them searching for a command uni to pair it with. Don’t tell anybody here but the coolest thing I got was a Force FX lightsaber. I’ve been wanting one of those for a long time. Totally cool.

WHOEVER is doing the merchandising for Trek, know this:

Ships! And props! That’s the stuff I buy. And I buy a LOT!

28. Polly - May 19, 2011

Nice! What’s better than Star Trek and M&Ms…oh, right. Star Trek and Smarties ;)

and the Gorn looks really good!

29. subspacejock - May 19, 2011

(sigh of semi-relief..) For awhile, I thought the only Trek stuff about to come out was for lil’ kids..Mini-mates, etc. The Gorn statue excites me….Now, I’d really like to see more along the lines of the TWOK communicator…Perhaps some more DST-style replica ships and props? Whatever happened to that rumor of DST coming out with an Enterprise-B and Excelsior? Oh…while I’m on a wish-list rant, I’d LOVE to see a Trek 3 tricorder! Okay…carry on friends!

30. Dee - lvs moon' surface - May 19, 2011

#15 – Harry Ballz

Yes… if you do not know… There are many of us here … fantasizing about “shirtless Kirk” fighting with Gorn … I hope boborci is seeing this… LOL

I wonder if Chris Pine would like to prepare for this fight … CP?? … +LOL

:-) :-)

31. star trackie - May 19, 2011

The Gorn statue is great. Not sure where in the world I will set it, but I’ll make a place for it!

32. Harry Ballz - May 19, 2011

30.

Oh, Dee, I’m well acquainted with your lust-filled shirtless Pine campaign.

Anybody here hot for lizards? :>)

33. Phil - May 19, 2011

@32…only if it involves baby oil or jello…

34. Lt. Bailey - May 19, 2011

Thats hilarious….M&M Capt Kirk!!! I want to buy it just for the laughs it gives me.

The Gorn is fantastic. I looks just like the statue that STTE had on display next to the salt vampire when you came down the stairs….I have many a photos taken with those two full size figures whenever we went to Vegas. How I miss STTE…. and the Tranya.

35. Holger - May 19, 2011

The Art Asylum Gorn figure is just as good, I think, but the price is much cooler.

36. Harry Ballz - May 19, 2011

33.

(in best Homer Simpson voice)

Mmmmmm, lizards and jello………..BWAARHHHHHHHHH!

37. Keachick (rose pinenut) - May 19, 2011

#32 Harry, what other reason would there be for (CP)Kirk to fight the Gorn other than in a shirtless state? We “pinenuts” know what we want and it is possible that our lustful desires when it comes to that man knows few bounds.

I have ideas for all sorts of shirtless (and pantless) Pine/Kirk scenes, which could include the entire movie…:)

Bob, you reading this? Taking notes? Good man. Make it so.

Chris Pine – we do love you for your mind as well – sense of humour, intelligence, etc. Never believe otherwise!

38. Harry Ballz - May 19, 2011

Keachick, based on that logic, why not have the next movie with the Enterprise crew visiting a nudist planet and, because of the Prime Directive, all of them (including Kirk) must beam down nude in order to conform with the planet’s society?

The title? Star Trek: Bottoms Up!

Tell me, would that meet with your drooling approval? :>)

39. Keachick (rose pinenut) - May 19, 2011

#38 Yes, Harry. I think that might work and thank God for the Prime Directive…:)! although we never (or rarely) saw the TOS crew conform to local clothing customs, except in Bread and Circuses – something the present film makers might like to rectify.

Anyway, my Menosians from the Menosian planetary system lead a healthy naturist lifestyle, although they tend to cover their more sensitive mid-regions when the weather becomes a little inclement. Makes sense really. Also their hair has a slightly different texture to human hair and grows extraordinarily fast. Men don’t need to shave. In my story, some of the Menosians are a little afraid of the Kirk fuzz… (Oh, I can see a lovely CP scene, with beard and all…)

Anyway, Pine/Kirk, being of excellent health and warm blooded, will adapt quickly to any inclemency in Menosian weather, allowing him to conform perfectly to local clothing customs. Except at the beginning, he finds the weather very agreeable. Also his time spent on Menosia could well be the happiest time of his life (he meets HER there as well). Who, among you, could deny him this experience?

40. Phil - May 19, 2011

37. Keachick (rose pinenut) – May 19, 2011

Would any of them include Spock?

41. Keachick (rose pinenut) - May 19, 2011

#40 I guess they could include one or two shirtless scenes of Quinto/Spock, but personally, I do not find Quinto/Spock as attractive. Of course, Quinto fans may have different ideas on this subject.

The *problem*, of course, is that any fight scene with Spock could well be shortlived because of the Vulcan nerve pinch, before there is a chance for any shirt to get ripped off the man. Also being stronger than even a fit human male, like Kirk, makes fighting times shorter, so therefore there are fewer opportunities for Spock to end up being shirtless, let alone pantless, but keeping up the good fight, nevertheless…

42. Lt. Bailey - May 19, 2011

#39 Keachick

TOS crew did wear native costume on other worlds… after loosing their uniforms in some fashion.

Errand of Mercy—dressed as local Organians.
City of the egde of Forever– Depression era civilian clothes
Piece of the action- dressed in suits to blend in with the mobsters.
Patterns of force- dressed as German SS officers.
A private little war- Dressed in Tyrees tribe clothes

There maybe a few other episodes but these jump to fore front of my memory at the moment but your reasons are good one.

Harry, my friend, if the crew does go to a nudist planet I hope that it is a cold planet… who do you think should play the female roles????

43. Keachick (rose pinenut) - May 19, 2011

Of course, with Menosia, I have yet to determine whether some of the menosians find male facial hair more or less frightening and/or bewildering than Vulcan pointy ears, along with the long dark chest hairs also to be seen on the Quinto/Spock body. Odd looking pieces of coloured materials covering Kirk and Spock’s body could perhaps be just as bewildering…for many of the people on this pristine beautiful peaceful oasis in an otherwise crazy universe.

Then again, menosians do wear their hair – they cut it and weave it into winter clothing and blankets, only needed when the cold becomes slightly extreme. Female hair, being softer, makes clothing for babies and small children (under 5’s usually) who have not developed as yet a capacity to cope with most temperatures without the need to be covered.

So much to be learned…:)

Bob – are you noting all this? Remember – beauty, simplicity, loving kindness…

44. Phil - May 19, 2011

HEY, BOB…Keachick wants a little Kirk/Spock action in the next flick. Nude, please….maybe shaved, too…

There you go, Kea…you can’t say I never do anything for you!! :-)

45. Dee - lvs moon' surface - May 19, 2011

LOL… start something with “shirtless Kirk”… and Keachick, is excited… and who does not? … +LOL

:-) :-)

46. Keachick (rose pinenut) - May 19, 2011

Yes, Dee! You will keep mentioning a shirtless Pine/Kirk fighting Gorn, whatever… it is almost like a red rag to a bull…LOL

Bob – I’m not as fussed about seeing a (near)nude Spock (perhaps his own fans could put in a word here…LOL) as I am about seeing “my captain”.

Perhaps Anthony Pascale could do a poll on the issue? ………:)

(The only problem is that the movie could get an R-rating. Seeing healthy naked human bodies is somehow bad (irrespective of what the persons may or may not be doing) gets an R-rating, but showing all kinds of bloody and gratuitous violence, explosions, imploding planets etc only warrants a PG-13 rating (M in NZ). Just so screwy! Oh well, better get off the soapbox).

So what could give it an R-rating – Kirk being naked fighting the Gorn or the horrendous violence and subsequent serious injuries inflicted on each other by each other? I wonder.

47. Harry Ballz - May 19, 2011

42.

Lt. Bailey, I would recommend Megan Fox play a yeoman. She should be the first in the landing party to disrobe.

Hmmmm, I might even go to see this movie twice.

48. Keachick (rose pinenut) - May 19, 2011

#42 Why a cold planet? General disrobing would be far less likely!

Title possibility?

Star Trek: Eye Candy Ahoy!

49. Harry Ballz - May 19, 2011

Star Trek: The Search For Johnny Longbow?

I was told that the AA/DST Enterprise-B and Klingon Bird of Prey had been cancelled.

This quote was taken from the question I posed on the DST Facebook page.

“Diamond Select Toys We have a few more retro figures planned, but no plans for more 6-inch figures or the Enterprise B at this time. We will keep everyone posted should that change. – Tuesday at 1:54pm”

Gutted – Fuming – Angry – Disgruntled…..

51. Harry Ballz - May 20, 2011

(sung to the music of “Hair”)

“Gimmee a film with Gorn, long, beautiful Gorn…..”

52. Dee - lvs moon' surface - May 20, 2011

#46 – Keachick ……

…. bull? … thinking in Minotauro … maybe … Someone yesterday on twitter said she saw Chris Pine at a restaurant in Mykonos, Greece… really? CP?? … I need to see a picture to believe it … whatever … anyway is a perfect place to be shirtless … a dream place indeed! … LOL

:-) :-)

53. Red Dead Ryan - May 20, 2011

50.
….

Aww…F*CK! I knew it!

54. THX-1138 - May 20, 2011

#’s 50 and 53

AA/DST seems to suffer from a lack of capital from which to produce and promote their products on the scale necessary. Their reach exceeds their grasp and sometimes it is evidence in the product that ends up on shelves (usually several months or even years late). The Enterprise D had some terrible flaws in the neck area and I never was able to reach who I needed to get it corrected. When I order their stuff from Entertainment Earth I always end up getting EE to replace flawed merchandise as AA doesn’t return my calls and EE is VERY customer servic friendly. I know that AA/DST have to balance high standards for their products with the plain fact that they can’t afford to get them manufactured decently. They seem to always be plagued with production problems on the more ambitious products. I like AA/DST and admire their true geekness. But I don’t depend on them. What they need is a great influx of money or maybe better management of the money they already have. I always get the feeling that the company is “hand to mouth”.

55. Lt. Bailey - May 20, 2011

Harry,

Meagan Fox…. I could not agree more! She would be a treat, looks like we have the makings a a fine film.

56. THX-1138 - May 20, 2011

As long as Megan wears mittens. Those thumbs!

57. Harry Ballz - May 20, 2011

Yeah, like I’m looking at her thumbs! Sheesh!

58. THX-1138 - May 20, 2011

Megan Fox’s thumbs are the cause of the financial crisis. Her thumbs are the inspiration for reverend Whatsit’s Rapture predictions. Her thumbs are the cause of global warming. Her thumbs may have played a part in Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwartzengruber’s failed marriage.

Any time you have a headache or upset tummy, look no further than her thumbs.

Don’t look at them if you wish, Harry. But don’t ignore their mystical evil power. Sheesh indeed.

59. Keachick (rose pinenut) - May 20, 2011

All power to the thumbs…eh, what?

#52 Yes, indeed. Lucky man. I spent a week in Crete many years ago. Fabulous weather and oh, those Greek salads with those huge beautiful juicy sweet tomatoes. Hope Chris gets all tomatoed out…sigh…oh to be there to share a big juicy Greek tomato with him.

Come on, Chris – some pictures please. It would be good for Greek tourism as well. Think of it as charity to two very worthy causes – Greek tourism and us (me and Dee)…”We are worth it” or so the locally produced ad. goes and very true as well.

Does his publicist ever read this space? Hope so – perhaps she could get a message to him.

60. Dee - lvs moon' surface - May 20, 2011

OMG! … I do not believe … guys talking about the thumbs of Megan Fox… LOL

#59 – Keachick … …. I think, CP’s publicist has the easiest job in the world … he/she does not seem to have much action, right? … hey, was not you accused of being his publicist? … you do the job … and I do, too … of course! … but I wonder if he approves us… or if he noticed us … whatever … it doesn’t matter! …. +++LOL

:-) :-)

61. Red Dead Ryan - May 20, 2011

Megan Fox STINKS as an actress! If you guys are all hot over her, so be it!

I’ll take Olivia Wilde or Kate Beckinsale, thank-you-very-much!

62. Harry Ballz - May 20, 2011

Olivia Wilde would be great in the next Trek movie. She could play a mean Vulcan.

T’Pring?

63. Red Dead Ryan - May 20, 2011

She’d make a good Saavik as well, except the J.J movies take place (presumably) before her birth.

64. Harry Ballz - May 20, 2011

Just don’t slap a lot of stupid alien makeup on her and hide her gorgeous good looks!

65. Red Dead Ryan - May 20, 2011

And have her wear as little clothing as possible. Or make her a Deltan with hair!

66. Harry Ballz - May 20, 2011

Yes, but will the carpet match the drapes?

67. Harry Ballz - May 21, 2011

Have the Gorn get up close and personal with a Starfleet member played by Olivia Wilde.

The title of the movie?

Star Trek: Gorn To Be Wilde

68. Dee - lvs moon' surface - May 21, 2011

Hey Keachick! … true… CP is in Mykonos, Greece… the picture is not very good but is he … shirtless and beard … yammm!!! LOL

here:

69. Red Dead Ryan - May 21, 2011

66.
….

Maybe she prefers to keep her floor bare?

70. Keachick (rose pinenut) - May 21, 2011

Thanks for that, Dee. That did not take long – as in you being able to find a picture of Chris Pine. Perhaps certain people are reading and obliging? Could a request for a few more pictures (hopefully, of better quality) be pushing it, I wonder? It would be rather nice if they were…

Have a great time there, Chris!

The problem I have with most men and beards is that the beard hides the distinct facial features. Chris has lovely fine facial features which are lost. He seems to want to “hide his light under a bushel” as it were. Of course, it could be that he swings from being extemely hard working to being extremely lazy – as in “shaving’s a pain – if I don’t have to, I won’t”. Fair enough.

Captain Kirk prefers to be clean shaven, of course, and he finds out just necessary that is when he visits Menosia…:)!

71. Keachick (rose pinenut) - May 21, 2011

You mean I may have to watch that Orci/Kurtzman/Bay extravaganza called Transformers just in order to check out the Fox thumbs. Oh well, duty calls…

MJ – there is no requirement for you to watch…:)

72. Robert - November 29, 2011

What happened to the Enterprise B, Excelsior, And DSt Klingon Bird of prey and Disruptor?
