The assortment placed in about 800 of the 4000 Walmarts are comprised of TWOK Kirk and Khan, Lord of the Rings figures and some of the monsters Mego produces. They are placed in the Pop culture section as opposed to the toy section. The TWOK figures are very well done for their price point. This assortment at Walmart is a trial run to gauge success of sales at which point a larger order will be placed. Some Targets also have Mego's placed in their pop culture section. Wave 8 of newer Mego figures will be available from the distributor around February 25th. It will include Picard and Data 8" figures.

Hey, BBTS just listed preorders for a ST:DISCO Burnham and Saru MEGO figure...
Also, Q and Locutus.

Also, Pike (not sure if it will be based on the Hunter or Mount, as there are no photos yet...)

Pike will be based on the Anson Mount Pike. Saru has been available in Walmart for a couple of months now. Q and Locutus and Burnham should be available soon.

I had a dream last night that Star Trek sold well enough that they went DEEP into TNG and even made DS9 and Voyager Megos !

Does anyone here collect modern Mego Star Trek figures? Mego has an exclusive Star Trek the motion picture Spock 8 figure and s Commander Kor 8 action figure available. I just got a Klingon Commander Kang & figure that looks outstanding, Mego is producing quite a bit of Star Trek 8 figures. They are also producing some 14 Star Trek figures. Spock, Kirk and Gorn are the first 3.

Im collecting them, I have Spock and Kor on order, but had to do it through a friend, as international shipping is $70 for 1-4 figures. Im waiting for Riker and Kang though.
I wish they hadnt done Spock as an exclusive, unless they have a variant coming out, a TMP team might not sell at retail, lacking a certain Vulcan. I was hoping they were offering some filler figures, that would not be needed to make a collection, but as long as they dont make army builders, I guess Im ok.

Yep, I'm collecting them all. For a change getting them here in the UK is pretty easy. At least we're getting some sort of figures at the moment.

At least folks in the UK get free shipping at a certain point.

Topps just upped the quantity you can buy to 5 of each figure as opposed to only 2 of each. DS9 Sisko and Quark are available this week.

Unfortunately us in the UK are still stuck at 2. I had to get my brother to set up an account to get more Sisko figures.

I've not received anything here in the UK. I have heard though that the mainstream releases are going to be different from the Topps ones. I hope so all the effort I made ordering the Topps ones.
