Ready for more toy news from the Star Trek movie? Well it is just pouring in now with the first big reveal of figures, toys and playsets from Playmates. USA Today has an exclusive first look at what kids are going to be playing with this summer, details below.
It’s play time
Unlike the Barbie figures shown earlier on Wednesday, the Playmates line of Star Trek movie toys will be extensive, covering ships, role playing toys, figures (in three sizes) and playsets. Today the first images of much of Playmates first wave of Star Trek toys are being revealed at USA Today (again showing how Paramount and CBS Products are trying to market this new Trek and the merchandise to the wider mainstream audience).
So let’s take a look at some of what they are showing off…
USA Today has more details and images and larger sizes as well as comments from CBS and otherss, so check it out. (While there you may notice some quotes from TrekMovie’s Anthony Pascale and John Tenuto).
In addition to USA Today, Previews Magazine is also showing off an additional small image from Playmates 3 3/4" line (the line used for the play sets).
