The Collective brings news on all sorts of Trek stuff we can expect later this year. We have the first look at the newly designed Mego Gorn, new pre-orders available for new DS9 and TOS figures and also a closer look at the 2008 Star Trek Hallmark ornaments.
First look at DST Retro MEGO Gorn
This week DST and EMCE Toys released the first look at the redesigned MEGO retro Gorn. DST promised a surprise with the Gorn, and they were not exaggerating. This is the first MEGO reproduction that tries to improve on the original 70s version. While previous action figures from this DST line are detailed reproductions, the original Gorn was seriously problematic, from its brown color to the use of a Klingon costume. The redesigned Gorn, available this autumn, tries to look like what the toy could have been with a blend of detailing and playability. The Gorn (paired with the a new Sulu retro MEGO figure) should be available for preorder soon.

Closer look at 2008 Hallmark ornaments
This February, Trekmovie.com broke the news about this year’s Hallmark Star Trek ornaments, the Reliant, a Trouble With Tribbles scene, and a Communicator.
This week the 2008 Dreambook (Hallmark’s catalog of all new ornaments) is available in all the Hallmark stores and was also sent to members of the Keepsake Ornament Club (the Dreambook is also available online, exclusively for KOC members but will become available to everyone within the week). With your Dreambook, you can fill out a "wishlist" and give it to your local Hallmark for them to set aside whatever ornaments you want (you pay for them when available).
Master Replica studio-scale Enterprise available for pre-order again
The limited edition 32" long, finely detailed model of the TOS Enterprise sold out quickly when it was released, but Entertainment Earth has some more coming into stock in July. At $1,199 it is pricey, but is expertly crafted and comes with lights and a stand.
