A COLLECTIVE FOR THE COLLECTIVE
Star Trek Life Sized Cardboard Standees
Following in the long tradition of Star Trek cardboard standees (with almost 100 different life sized decorations available during the years), you can now buy standees for the crew of the new Star Trek movie. Many people utilize standees for Halloween or party decorations, or to display in their Star Trek collections. There are five new standees available from Cardboard Peaple (Kirk, Spock, McCoy,
Uhura, and Sulu) and they are sized about 68" to 72" depending on the character. They cost $29.99 each and are available through Amazon.com (sold by Marsino’s Costumes and Novelities).
Playmates Wave 2 on official site & pre-orders.
Last month TrekMovie revealed the second wave of Playmates Star Trek movie toys and now the Playmates Toys Star Trek website has added nice pictures and details (including lists of accessories for each figure).
You could now preorder the Playmates Toys 3.75" Wave 2 action figures from Entertainment Earth. While the line includes 10 action figures, retail stores such as Toys R Us and Targets will only be selling 7 of these figures, with online retailers such as EE getting three additional exclusive figures. TrekMovie recommends that fans wishes to complete their bridge playset and get all the figures order from EE. The 10 figures available from EE (for $68.99) are:
- General Ayel
- Spock in Cadet Leader Uniform
- Kirk in Space Outfit
- Kirk in Off-Duty Uniform

The interactive Star Trek utility belt is also available for preorder at $30.29, available this August.
Four more Funko Star Trek Bobbleheads
Funko is adding to their 8 previously released Star Trek bobbleheads (including the two Comic-con exclusives). They have announced four new bobbleheads: a talking McCoy, Scotty and Khan (from Star Trek II) and a non-talking Kruge. These are expected to be available the fourth quarter of 2009. They are available now for pre-order at UK online retailer Forbidden Planet (US retailers will have these soon).
Armitron Star Trek watch revealed
Last summer TrekMovie reported that Armitron Watch Company has a license for Star Trek watches. And now Armitron has finally released the first image of their limited edition men’s Star Trek watch. Armitron’s website includes a store locator which could be utilized to find which retailers that will be selling the watch near you.
