Star Trek V posed figures

I'm sure that changed once it was actually out though, right?

V will always have a special place in my heart. Having become a fan of TNG the first year it was on, The Final Frontier was the first Star Trek movie I got to see on the big screen. I went with my mom (I was only 9) and I still have the big red cup with the Star Trek V logo on it we got at the theater. I seem to remember having a T-shirt from it as well. I quite enjoyed it as a kid and wanted the toys until i saw that they didn't really move. I had some Willow action figures like that and I'd learned my lesson not to bother with them.
Having re-watched all the TOS movies for the first time in a long time I was struck by how much good stuff is in V. I mean, the special effects are embarrassing.... especially the way the models are lit. But there are some fun Spock/Kirk/McCoy moments.
I do remember REALLY wanting the "Marsh Melon" dispenser mail-away they had at the time too.

I ordered that dispenser back then, it was a mail away thing from Kraft marshmallows packages. Still have one in the mailer box still in the plastic baggie! Around the same time period, crest toothpaste had a mailaway for a set of communicators from TOS, still have those as well in the mailer box. I like the STV posed figures, but not as much had they had been ACTION figures. I have a MIB Spock and a loose Sybok, not interested in the others that much anymore.

Yes, it was, Star Trek V, BATMAN, and Indiana Jones and the last crusade were a pretty good line up for a summer, fond memories are there for me. I wouldnt mind seeing a Star Trek V line from DST myself.

Yeah, remember when DST said something like we'd get a 2-pack from each movie? I guess that's pretty much dead in the water now....but I wonder what the Star Trek V pack would have been? Sybok (retooled Spock in robes body) and Spock (in red TWOK style outfit)? Kirk and Spock in the Starfleet jumpsuits? Kirk and Spock in campfire gear? Sigh....guess we'll never know...

True...I was just basing it on the fact that if that insanely awesome Kruge/ Maltz was cancelled for lack of orders, than what is the likelihood that a pack based on the what is probably the least popular Trek film would get made?
Still, like you said, there's always a chance...

ST6 would be the one that would be hardest to come up with. Would the Klingons sell, considering the Maltz and Kruge figures failed to and the ST6 Klingons would need new uniform sculpts on top of everything. They could do a Sulu and Rand two pack, but would they sell on their own without Kirk or Spock? I suppose they could do a Captain Kirk and Captain Sulu two pack, completely kitbashed set with no new sculpts at all, or a Captain Spock and Valeris two pack, one reuse and one new head sculpt. The Sulu and Rand two pack would appeal more to fans, but a set without Kirk and/or Spock would be a harder sell for DST's general customer base.

As you can see I doubt that the heads remove unless you cut them off.
Yeah, whether you call them figures or statues, they're crap by any name. As I was going through my stuff recently, i came across a complete set of these and had one of those "what was I thinking?!" moments. I packed them up and shipped them off to a buddy of mine who is a ST5 fiend. (Other than that, he's normal).
While i don't think ANY ST5-themed figures would sell (and I like the commando stuff), ST6 would be a natural, I would think, since it's a fan fave to begin with. You mentioned Valeris, but there's also Chang, Gorkon and his daughter, Col. Worf and the Assassin in the Rad suit. Those Klingons are especially unique in their "non-traditional" garb. A Gorkon could be amazing!

Totally agree... and they really should have mixed and matched the TVH 2 pack. They could have done Kirk/ Kruge and Spock/ Maltz. Sure, doesn't make a ton of sense...but I highly doubt anyone would have complained...
