Quantum Mechanix (aka QMx) are releasing two highly detailed figurines of the two Starfleet legends, and we have the details.
Licensees have been putting out Star Trek figures of all shapes and sizes since the early 70’s when toy manufacturer Mego released their now-legendary line of action figures based on The Original Series. The quality has varied wildly over the years, with some figures bearing only a passing resemblance to the characters they’re intended to be.
QMx, which specializes in high-end replicas from shows and movies, is aiming to create the definitive figurines of Captain James T. Kirk and his first officer, Mr. Spock.
The 1/6 scale figures are highly detailed and articulated, and can feature a variety of accessories, including phasers, tricorders, the phaser rifle from “Where No Man Has Gone Before”, and even Spock’s Vulcan lyre (in case you feel the need to have Spock jam with some really groovy cats). Also included are multiple hands for various action poses, like Kirk’s badass judo chop, Spock’s Vulcan Neck Pinch, and even one that looks like the Vulcan Death Grip (I know, there’s no such thing as a Vulcan Death Grip – but the Romulans don’t know that).
Like many QMx collectibles, the price is a bit steep. The figures are $179.95 each, with special “exclusive” editions, featuring the phaser rifle for Kirk and the lyre for Spock, going for $20 more.
The figures are available for pre-order beginning on June 23rd at 10am Pacific, and are expected to ship by the end of July. You can give them your hard-earned quatloos by clicking here.
