Today at the annual Toy Fair in New York Hasbro outlined their product plans for the upcoming year at an investor event, including their line of KRE-O figures and sets for Star Trek Into Darkness. See below for details and images. We also have a close look at Revell’s new movie USS Enterprise and a translucent ‘cloaked’ Klingon Bird of Prey from Diamond Select.   

 

 

Hasbro Reveals Star Trek KRE-O line

Today executives from Hasbro conducted an extensive Investor Day Webcast presentation in advance of the annual Toy Fair trade show which kicks off on Sunday. During the presentation CEO Brian Goldner also discussed plans for their line of KRE-O building block sets for Star Trek Into Darkness. He announced there will be a total of 11 different Star Trek building sets with 18 different "KREON" figures. Goldner also talked about new technology for the sets saying:

In May when the Star Trek movie comes to the big screen we are featuring a variety of intergalactic space vehicles from the movie, including one of the most iconic space vehicles of all time–the USS Enterprise and Collectible KREONS. We are introducing a new technology called "LightTech" that will allow every space vehicle to come to life with light.

His presentation also showed this slide about Star Trek.

Here is a closer look at some of the figures

And here is a closer look at some of three of the sets (sorry for low resoltuion – TrekMovie is trying to get better images).


Klingon Bird of Prey KREO set


USS Enterprise KREO set


Transporter Room? KREO set

In addition, Hasbro released details on their KREO USS Enterprise set:

KRE-O STAR TREK U.S.S. ENTERPRISE
Explore the final frontier with the crew of the U.S.S. ENTERPRISE, the iconic ship from the upcoming STAR TREK movie from Paramount Pictures. Based on the ship featured in the film, the KRE-O U.S.S. ENTERPRISE is 18" long, includes a display stand, and is the first KRE-O set that actually lights up! Explore the lighted Bridge interior play area, glowing warp engines, and launch a projectile from a lighted photon torpedo. Kids and fans alike will be excited to find KREON figures representing KIRK, SPOCK, BONES and more in the ENTERPRISE set which includes five KREON figures and 540 brick pieces. (Ages 6 & up/Approx. Retail Price: $69.99/Available: 2013)

 

Goldner also provided more detail on the stop-motion Star Trek movie they are working on with Bad Robot, saying:

We have also partnered with J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot and Paramount to create a KRE-O Star Trek stop-motion digital short. It features the KRE-O Star Trek set and KREON figures and it tells an entirely stand-alone Star Trek storyline.

TrekMovie will provide updates as more info is made available about the Hasbro Star Trek line and the stop-motion movie.

Revell unveils JJVerse USS Enterprise Model

Speaking of Toy Fairs, last weekend the European Toy Fair was held in Nurenburg and Revell showed off their new 1:500 scale USS Enterprise from the new Star Trek movie universe.

The model will be released in Europe in May with an expected retail price of €34.99. No word yet on US release.

DST unveils Star Trek III Bird of Prey ‘Cloaked’ Variant

Recently Diamond Select released an electronic Klingon Bird of Prey vehicle toy (available at Entertainment Earth for $59.99). And just today they announced ‘cloaked’ variant made out of translucsent green plastic which features dialog from Star Trek III.  Like the original, the variant measures 19 inches wide and 12.5 tall with the display stand.

Here is an image and video showing off the electronic features..

The variant is available exclusively at Action Figure Xpress for $69.99.

Comments

1. NuFan - February 8, 2013

Does Lego know about Kreo?

2. The professor - February 8, 2013

First!!!
I’ll have to get one of those Enterprises!!!!

3. Joseph Dickerson - February 8, 2013

THEY HAVE TO IMPORT THAT ENTERPRISE MODEL!

Ahem… sorry for the screaming, but I think it’s justified.

4. John Tenuto - February 8, 2013

The packaging consistency between Revell’s model and the KreO line may be the new packaging for STID items, or for Star Trek in general. Both lines have the name Star Trek (no “Into Darkness” interestingly) and Kirk and Spock in the same exact poses.

5. StephenH - February 8, 2013

Maybe if they really wanted a ‘cloaked-effect’ BoP they could have made it out of clear plastic ??

Even a crystal BoP ??

6. SherlockFangirl - February 8, 2013

IMO, that Klingon BOP variant is the stoopidest thing in AGES.

7. Captain Jack Bauer - February 8, 2013

1. Lego knows.

Lego was suing a company known as MegaBloks in Canada for quite some time. The suit ended up being unsuccessful because it was deemed that Lego could not copyright their construction system (namely nubs and tubes, or whatever). That ruling opened the door for Hasbro to introduce Kre-O (which I don’t think has been super successful anyway).

8. El Kapitan - February 8, 2013

What I want to know is when Diamond Select will be doing the Enterprise-C & the JJ-prise. Love not having to put them together.

9. Disgruntled fan - February 8, 2013

I think TPTB have forgotten Bones exists and is part of the trio.

10. RenderedToast - February 8, 2013

Looks to me like some major design changes have been made to the Bird of Prey, which fits in with the logic of the Klingons having Nero for however many years. Exciting!

Also, first ever new-style Klingon figure. The collectors must be pretty excited.

11. sisko - February 8, 2013

So far all of the official Star Trek “Lego” sets that have been released are ugly (and that includes the Mega Blocks Enterprise-D). Lego needs to get the contract. Their licensed products are incredible.

12. Jonboc - February 8, 2013

That KRE-O stuff is way too cutesy for my tastes…reminds me of muppet babies or the Flintstone kids…yuk…but, having that, It’s not made for me. If it will get kids to have fun and play Star Trek like I did when I was a kid, then I’ll consider it a rousing success. I wish it well!

13. Daniel Broadway - February 8, 2013

Any word on action figures or vehcile toys besides the Kre-O ones?

14. BOB - February 8, 2013

HOW ABOUT SOME HASBRO 3 3/4 INCH FIGURES THAT ACTUALLY STAND UP…

PRAY THAT GALOOB/ PLAYMATES DONT GET ANY LICENSES FOR THE NEW MOVIE…THEY WILL PROMISE THE UNIVERSE AND DELIVER NOTHING.

15. LtPiper - February 8, 2013

9.

I’ve noticed that the trio in JJ verse tends to be Kirk, Spock and Uhura.

16. Trekbilly - February 8, 2013

Please blow up that ugly Enterprise with the chunky nacelles in STID!! Ugh…then bring it back as a prettier ship — worthy of the name!

A ship with no brewery for an engine room I might add!

17. Picard, Jean-Luc - February 8, 2013

Anyone thinking Lego would do a better job is talking rubbish. The only plus to have had lego would have been the reputation lego has and the video game tie ins, other than that I think Hasbro have done a better job with Star Trek than Lego have done with Iron Man 3.

Adding the lights is genius, so gonna get the entire line of Kreo stuff

18. Son of Jello - February 8, 2013

It would be good to get a lego collectors edition for Star Trek. Some of the star wars kits were amazing.

19. John Gill - February 8, 2013

The artwork on that Revell box looks better than the model its self…

20. Tanner Waterbury - February 8, 2013

WHERE THE F*** ARE THE PLAYSETS AND SHIPS?! I want a damaged Enterprise toy dammit! These better not be the only ones to be made!

21. long-live-the-king - February 8, 2013

I’m with number 3; import, plz

22. I'm Dead Jim! - February 8, 2013

So did Polar Lights lose the rights to the JJ Enterprise altogether? It still blows my mind that they never released the model kit until now, and it’s in Germany.

23. Jeff - February 8, 2013

My brother collects some of the Transformers Kreon figures. They’re not as well made as the Lego figures. For example, if you take out and reinsert their hands too many times, the arms get stress marks on them.

24. Tomh, Esq. - February 8, 2013

I agree that LEGO deserves to get the Star Trek license.

With their handling of the “Star Wars,” “Batman,” and “Indiana Jones” properties, they have shown that the are capable of delivering quality products. Plus, their partnership with Travelers Tales has produced an enjoyable series of video games.

I look forward to seeing what LEGO comes up with for their forthcoming “Back to the Future” product line.

25. Dave - February 8, 2013

Phasers and communicators and action figures from hasbro please !

Who else agrees ?

26. JRT! - February 9, 2013

WOW! Amazingly CRAP! So Hascrap was lying to me at Comic Con last year!?! Where’s the action figures and big Enterprise!? Oh well,saves me a bunch of money since I ain’t getting any Kre-O crap. Love the Revell model and BoP though!

Have fun!

J-R!

27. NCC-73515 - February 9, 2013

A 6-pointed betleH!!! Looks weird…

28. DMar - February 9, 2013

#8 – JJ Prise was done when the movie came outback in 2009. I have one sitting on a shelf in my living room. It was a gift. Visit Diamond Select web site and see if they still have any.

29. James Cannon Runcorn Trekkie UK - February 9, 2013

DST make great ships but they do drag their feet.

I’ve had the BOP & 1701-B on pre-order with Forbidden Planet UK since February 2012. Every few weeks I get an email it was delayed etc etc.
Finally DST say they both will be out in December (in the US) so I was hopeful of an early January release in UK. I’m now told there has been an issue with deliveries and BOTH will not be released till late March, early April.

Also annoying is that the cloaked BOP is only available via one shop. I’ve ordered one but it will cost me over £40 more than the BOP for p&p and even then I’ll probably be charged about £15 for customs.

Surely they can see that people outside the US are interested in their Star Trek Merchandise???!!!!

As for the Kre-on stuff, I’ll wait till they come down in price.
You can get the 2009 3.75 figures for a £1 in Poundland and the 6inch figures in Home Bargains for around £1.99. The bridge and transporter rooms are also about £5-£7 each.

30. Caesar - February 9, 2013

Lego laughs at kreo. I predict a quick death for this line.

31. Lt. Daniels - February 9, 2013

I hope the action figures are 4.5″ Not the little 3.75″ and not the bigger 6″ ones. Hope Hasbro can do an even better 4.5″ figure than Playmates.

32. JRT! - February 9, 2013

Diamond Select hasn’t done a JJprise or any other stuff from new movies,so I doubt you’ll find anything at their website. Amazon has the Playmates stuff,which is probably the JJprise people have. Got one myself,and I like it as I don’t think it’s ugly at all! But Hascrap better step up with some figs and ships,and I don’t mean the Krap-O version.
J-R!

33. I am not Herbert - February 9, 2013

yeah, no, the LEGO Star Wars stuff is outstanding! =)

this stuff still looks like crap, but at least it’s better than Playmates! =D

34. egoing - February 9, 2013

LEGO did not INVENT Plastic Bricks, a British Company known as Kiddiecraft did. The Danish company LEGO produces quality, that is now debatable with some production moving away from Denmark/Europe. So please let the record show Mr. Hilary ‘Harry’ Fisher Page is the true INVENTOR of the plastic building blocks.

35. JohnRambo - February 9, 2013

HAHA now it’s revealed! At the end of the Movie they getting a new WHITE Enterprise:-D

36. Planet Pandro - February 9, 2013

what’s hasbro thinking!? they’re making star trek TOYS that might actually be FUN??

the nerve of those people!

37. ManicTribble. - February 9, 2013

I went to the Revell Germany site, they will ship to America. Guess I’ll be ordering as soon as the ship is released.

38. Lens Flares Suck - February 9, 2013

‘The word’ on the Revell Enterprise is they do NOT HAVE the license for the U.S.

If you want one it’s grey market or order from Europe.

Too bad, looks like a nice model.

39. Khan was Framed! - February 9, 2013

Blech!

When is Hasbro going to show the good stuff?

40. Planet Pandro - February 9, 2013

to further weigh in on Kre-O, Lego:

The Kre-Os look fine, they’re toys not models. That said it’s too bad Lego doesn’t have the Star Trek license, because yes there would have been some great sets to buy and build.

Or is it too bad??? I grew up building all sorts of everything out of lego and this is before the specialty kits and product licenses etc etc. I built all the star trek stuff (ok and star wars too) out of Legos before there were official kits and I dare say I did a fine job by comparison. If only I could post you all some pics to prove it, I still kept together my TOS bridge and Shuttle and have them to this day!

41. Mad MAnn - February 9, 2013

Bat’leth!!! Cool!!

I’m really digging the new Klingon look, and I’m so stoked that they are using Bat’leths!!

I just hope that the treatment of them in the movie is just as cool.

42. NCC-73515 - February 9, 2013

http://www.startrek.com/article/first-look-hasbros-star-trek-toys-revealed

“The KRE-O STAR TREK SPACE DIVE building set includes 36 pieces and two KREON figures, CAPTAIN KIRK and a villain with press-fire projectile weapons and accessories!”

“Based on iconic STAR TREK characters from the upcoming STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS movie from Paramount Pictures, these KREON FIGURE PACKS feature one collectible KREON figure and accessory per pack, with six different characters available in the spring of 2013 including: GORN, CAPTAIN NERO, KEENSER, GRASIA, KINGON and LIEUTENANT SPRONG. Twelve additional KREON figures will be released in fall 2013, including: CAPTAIN KIRK, SPOCK, BORG DRONE and GENERAL CHANG.”

43. Jack - February 9, 2013

42. Indeed, plus “transporter trouble” and “space dive” (with a diff costume than Trek 09 — looks like the one Kirk’s wearing in the trailer) sets — scenes from the next movie, or just general Trek situations?

44. NCC-73515 - February 9, 2013

Question is: are Chang and a Borg in this movie?! XD

45. MattR - February 9, 2013

The Kre-o’s look fun. I love the Klingons. And the Gorn looks interesting.

46. Kavi - February 9, 2013

Just looking at that revel enterprise I keep having the thought, MUST MOVE NECK FORWARD ALONG WITH NACELLES

47. meepmeep189 - February 9, 2013

Does anyone notice that the KREO bird of prey looks just like the ship from the STID trailer?

48. GD96 - February 9, 2013

I would hope they know, hasbro’s factory is on 5 minutes down the road from legos.

49. MattR - February 9, 2013

#47. Yeah, I think a lot of people just assumed it was a Klingon BOP from its general design.

50. BatlethInTheGroin - February 9, 2013

This part of the description is bizarre:

“Based on iconic STAR TREK characters from the upcoming STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS movie… six different characters available in the spring of 2013 including: GORN, CAPTAIN NERO, KEENSER, GRASIA, KINGON and LIEUTENANT SPRONG. Twelve additional KREON figures will be released in fall 2013, including: CAPTAIN KIRK, SPOCK, BORG DRONE and GENERAL CHANG.”

That would seem to indicate that INTO DARKNESS will include a Gorn and Nero. Huh??

51. Aix - February 9, 2013

Star Trek gets Kre-o and Star Wars gets Lego. Hmph.

52. Desstruxion - February 9, 2013

As clunky as the kre-o ship looks, I’ll still probably buy it to kitbash into another ship mixing it with my lego. Sad likeness of the Enterprise.

53. Red Dead Ryan - February 9, 2013

You’ll never see LEGO “Star Trek”. Never. George Lucas owned shares of the LEGO brand, which he then sold to Disney when he sold Lucasfilm. Disney now owns a chunk of the LEGO company.

There is no way Paramount/CBS are going to share revenue with a rival company.

54. JRT! - February 9, 2013

Hascrap isn’t thinking at all! They are making CRAP that’s actually BORING. The nerve of those people is absolutely right! Guess I don’t like being lied to my face. Oh well,hopefully it’ll fail. At least I can spend my money on 60′s Batman,new Superman movie,Marst Attacks and maybe Pacific Rim toys instead. Good thing I like other things than Trek,lol!
J-R!

55. They call me Stasiu - February 10, 2013

@23: It’s disheartening to hear the KRE-Os are of lesser quality with the stress marks.
I don’t find the figure design attractive, but I may try to find the Klingon ones. Glad to see their appearance hasn’t been altered from the first movie deleted scenes.

I gotta admit I didn’t see the ‘cloaked’ version of the BOP coming (ha ha) but I’m hoping for a solid version with the STIII sound effects.

56. A guy named Joe. - February 10, 2013

Really not sure what I think of the new intodarkness Bird of Prey, I do however really like that Enterprise model looks great.

57. A guy named Joe. - February 10, 2013

“There is no way Paramount/CBS are going to share revenue with a rival company”

Yeah that never ever happens in the movie industry, dude hate to break it to you but it happens all the time.

Studios license stuff out to competitors subsidary companies ALL the time.

58. Rose (as in Keachick) - February 10, 2013

While people may argue over just big or small nacelles should be blah, blah, I have to say that I have always the basic overall design of the Starship Enterprise (TOS/TMP era). Sleek and beautiful.

I have not liked the subsequent Enterprise designs as in TNG as much. I recently watched a Voyager episode where that ship had to land on a planet and boy once landed, did it look clumsy and ugly. What’s more, if it were a real ship, it would have, more than likely, toppled over.

Give me the original TOS design or JJ-TOS Enterprise over TNG and spin-off series ship designs any day.

I’ve always liked the look of the Klingon/Romulan Bird of Prey – sleek and a little scary as well. Very cool.

59. Rose (as in Keachick) - February 10, 2013

damn – meant to write “…I have always LOVED the basic…”

60. PEB - February 11, 2013

@58 I COMPLETELY agree! People argue over the new nacelle sizes but in all honestly, I like the design of TOS, TOS film era/JJ-TOS era Enterprise. The only other ship I really liked was the Enterprise E. Those were sleek, clean designs. I actually really like the Kelvin too.

61. DestinyCaptain - February 18, 2013

Why do the KREO and Megablocks set have to look like crap? Can they really not find someone on the My MOC pages and have them design something fantastic? Go there and search for Trek sometime. Some of the work there rivals the sets LEGO puts out for Wars. Just outsource it guys. The blocks are basically the same from brand to brand. They could easily have someone build it in LEGO and then translate it to KREO. It’s not hard. I personally own thousands of LEGOs and hundreds of the other brands. While they are not as durable, it is entirely possible to translate designs from one brand to another. We are talking basic brick designs, not the custom ones you sometimes see. The mega scale Reliant from the last couple of years is a perfect example.

62. toad stool - February 25, 2013

hey how about LEGO get sued by Bandai hey Bandai sue LEGO for ripping Thundercats off oh yeah a line called shitma oh my bad chitma damn there i go again chima chima is pure shit THUNDERCATS wannabe.LEGO NEEDS TO BE SUED FOR IMPERSONATING THUNDERCATS
