One of new licensees that previewed new Star Trek collectibles at Comic Con 2010 was Rocket World, designers of unusual collectibles and art who have applied the Star Trek design to their line of "cute but deadly" IWG vinyl figures. These are now available online, check them out below.
Star Trek IWG figures
Rocket World’s line of IWG figures have a full backstory, based on a future when "mysterious and benign, extra-terrestrial Astral Overseers put into motion their master plan to help tip the balance of certain inequities on planet earth." This plan involved the mutation of certain animals, giving them intelligence and skills to help protect the planet, creating the "Insurgents Wilderness Gruppo". The three animal team of IWG can be found on figures, shirts and more and now they have been re-imagined as Star Trek figures, with Captain Titus the bear, Commander Affonso the rhino, and Lt. Commander Hannibal the gorilla.
Each Vinyl and PVC figure is 7” tall and articulated. All three figures come accessorized with Starfleet uniform shirt, Starfleet Insignia, Type II Phaser, Communicator, Tricorder, and a mini plush Tribble.

FIRST!!! (Just had to, sorry…)
These toys are FUGLY! Pass!
I’ll give them props for equipment accuracy!
ACK! Not more cute trek! Load these up with Finney and jettison them all into the void…and hurry.
Nah. But, nice accessories.
Vinyl?? Who are these for? Why not a material a kid (or girlfriend) can cuddle?
Aw something for the kiddies, just like the Trek Bears from a few years back.

* Bet a lotta folks forgot about the trek Teddies didn’t they ? *
Yes… but are they CANON?
Not toys, vinyl collectible figurines. Like your grandmas little ceramic animals she collects. But much cooler.
Cute Trek rox, particularly because they started with canonical animals.
Anyone guess to what I am referring?
They are designer toys and have a huge following especially with YOUNG 20/30 something, artistic people, designers and the like – far more than “QUOGS” and definitely not for kids. If anyone has heard of “Munny” these figures follow in the same vein. Very niche and highly collectable.
I’m glad I picked these up at Comic-Con for $110 for all three.
Diamond Select Toys and Playmates both combined can’t seem to sale Star Trek. What makes anyone think these will do any better? I’d sure love to see Hasbro get a shot at the Trek figure license.
But not everything is for me.
THIS IS A DISASTER!!!!!
He’s a gorilla! I thought that was some kind of face mask on him, at first.
Great collection for my grandaughter! She’s a doll @ plush collecter. They will go on her shelf next to her 2 tribbles, japanese geisha doll”Hikaro’s sis” I named her.
Have to agree the props realy look authentic. Great Xmas tip
