I received my order of the Dress uniform Kirk and Spock, the new Romulan with a more screen accurate outfit, and regular Uhura. Dress uniform Kirk and Spock have more screen accurate Phaser and communicator color, not just blue like they are traditionally. I like having new Mego stuff coming out like this!

So how are these things selling everywhere else?

 

At my nearest Target, the first assortment sold out entirely and pretty quickly. It seemed Gorn and Spock from the second wave came and went within the same week. The third assortment is lingering a bit longer. 

 

Are there any plans to offer Trek figures based on the other TV series?

Yes, there are supposed to be figures made from other Star Trek series as well. Target stores seem to have trouble stocking the different waves of Mego figures. The Target closest to me never got anything past Wave 1 and still have some of those still there. I believe most people had the most success with Target.com, which is where I got nearly all of mine through Wave 3. The wave 4 figures are not exclusive to Target and so many people order from BBTS, Toywiz,Cotswold and any number of other online retailers. I believe the Star Trek and Monsters figures have sold very well, other lines like Brady Bunch and Married with Children not so much. The ones that didn't sell well we're Target exclusive and most likely won't continue. I bought my Wave 4 Star Trek figures from Cotswold collectibles, set of 4 for $54.99. That translates to $13.72 each. Not a bad price In my opinion.

I have made my order for wave four from bbts , but it hasnt arrived yet. I put it in the pile o loot invade I didnt have funds, but replaced it when it showed up! It didnt come with tracking, so I hope its on the way. The price was a bit less than regular target prices, right? (Sorry, Canada). I went to a comic expo, and found a Gorn, for the price of the two packs, and didnt have to pay shipping. He has been online for similar, but the shipping was almost the same price! Im caught up now, as soon as my order comes in. Where is the bridge crew??

There is news of the next wave that will be out sometime later this year, not sure exactly when yet though. There will be a green shirt Kirk with Tribbles, Regular shirt Spock with Tribbles and another Gorn with Glow in the dark features.Glow in the dark features are popular right now with Mego's monster series like Glow in the dark Frankenstein, Invisible Man and such. As far as Trek goes, The Trouble with Tribbles wave of the 3 figures I mentioned is the only other Star Trek news for 8" figures right now after wave 4. There were 14" Star Trek figures shown at Toy Fair but no word yet when they might appear for sale. Marty Abrams did say that mego has licensing rights for Next generation and DS9 so I expect we will see these going forward eventually.

I ordered mine from Think Geek and they came in quick and in perfect shape.

 

I passed on the Romulan because I thought it was the same one.

 

But Kirk, Spock, and Uhura are outstanding.

 

I'm really digging this Mego line.

Canadians, I was looking at the Sunday pricing for Megos, nothing... at the bottom was a sponsored link for the new figures. Who would have thought, I could buy them at... the Bay. Well possibly only, theBay.ca as I used the chat feature to ask if Kirk was in stock, and it was hard to access the info. I will get to the main store in town to see if any made it to the shelves.
The website has, Elvis, the new trek figures and new monster figures. Ten figures in all for $22.99 each plus $8 shipping.
I entered four figures, and total shipping was $8

I saw the MM Kirk/Spock Two pack in a Target today... so looks like some restocking is happening.

It would be great if all of the Targets would try to get all of the waves stocked, at least the current wave. The Target closest to me has never gotten anything newer than wave 1, and we are about to be in wave 6.
