Last week Mego Toys announced their line of retro and new figures coming in 2018, exclusively at Target. Today at San Diego Comic-Con, they revealed the first wave due in stores later this year.
The first wave includes four 8-inch Star Trek figures, with two being new figures which were not part of the original line from the 70s, along with a new box set with two variants of figures released in the 70s.
A longtime oversight will be addressed, as Sulu was not part of the original 1970’s Mego line. The figure comes equipped with a Mego-style (i.e. blue) phaser, communicator, and tricorder. The 8-inch cloth figure is priced at $19.99.
They weren’t taking the figures out of the packaging at SDCC, but Mego provided us with some images of the figures without their boxes.
Pavel Chekov will also be making his Mego debut, and comes with a phaser, communicator, and tricorder. The figure is also priced at $19.99.
Here is official pic of Chekov figure.
Mirror Universe box set
Mego is also taking us to the land of agonizers and goatees. The Mirror Universe box set will feature MU versions of Kirk and Spock based on the classic episode “Mirror, Mirror”. Both come equipped with phaser, communicator, and a dagger. This two-pack of 8-inch figures is priced at $29.99.
The Gorn and Romulan Commander
Teased on the back of the packaging but not part of the first wave of figures, and not shown at SDCC, are the expected upcoming figures of the Gorn and the Romulan Commander played by Mark Lenard in the classic TOS episode “Balance of Terror.”
Coming this summer
The new line of Mego figures will be sold exclusively at Target stores. The first wave will be released in August. A second wave of figures are expected later in 2018, with a third wave to follow.
