In Topic: Top 5 Figures You Want to See in the Relaunched Lineup

07 February 2022 - 06:05 PM

I can't think of just five figures. Aside from bridge crew/main characters for all eras (which is a lot of figures in and of itself!), my 'priority wishlist' figures are:

-TOS Lokai and Bele
-TOS Gary Mitchell
-TOS Salt Vampire
-TOS Ruk
-TOS Khan
-TOS Romulan
-TOS Kor the Kingon
-TMP Spacesuit Spock
-TMP Spacesuit Kirk
-STII David Marcus
-STII Savvik

-STIII civilian Kirk

-STIII civilian McCoy

-STIII civilian Sulu
-TNG Borg
-TNG Romulan Tomalok
-DSC Spacesuit Burnham
-DSC Klingon Vok
-DSC Klingon T’Kuvma

I tried to steer clear of most characters that were covered in the 90's toyline, but honorable mention goes to the following:

-TOS Sarek & Amanda
-TOS Trelane
-TOS Horta
-STIII Kruge (and pet)
-STVI Chang
-TNG Sela
-TNG Q
-TNG Lore (Descent)
-TNG Guinan
-ENT Shran
-DS9 Jem Hadar Soldier
-DS9 Weyoun
-DS9 Founder
-DSC Book

There are so many other sources for more detailed, more expensive highly breakable ships and other collectibles. This is a concept that appears to have been lost over the many years that products like this have catered solely to collectors, lets make a toy for kids to play with and that parents can buy without breaking the bank. If theres no toys or video games to keep new generations entertained the way this traditionally would occur, then the whole thing just dies on the vine. I suggest Eaglemoss for the detail you want. That big Enterprise D electronic kit they have that you get one component at a time is really nice. Just no way I see anyone buying Junior that no matter how great a kid he is!

Yeah, while I was hoping for 6 inch line like Star Wars, I'm happy with what these are. I barely touch or pose my Diamond Select/AA figures as I'm terrified of breaking them. Plus, I think the Diamond Select Wrath of Khan looks horrible. I'm glad someone will be making toys can be played with. I'm sure they'll make TOS figures in their 60's uniforms, I can't wait to see those!

The more I think about, the more I'm cool with the 5" scale. Even if it's not exactly the same as the 90's figures. I'm not sure they'll be able to make new playsets with the way things are priced these days, so the option to use the old playsets in this scale is nice. Plus, with these new figures, I don't have to have Riker and Worf ready to tackle someone while at their bridge posts. There's a Q &A on youtube, and it sounds like these will retail for around $13 per figure, which is a relief now that I'm paying $23 plus for 6" Legends, Black Series and G.I . Joe.

 

Here's a link to that Q&A
