Well alright, looks like somebody has finally took a great idea and ran with it. I wonder if DST or some other company could do the same with Star Trek. I could see that old Galoob line taking off especially if that Enterprise Playset was made! Looks like I finally have a reason to buy DST's Delorean Time Machine too, since Back To The Future is one of the forthcoming line of figures! About time!
Finally found one of these! I got Luke in X-Wing Fighter gear. I'm absolutely blown away. This is the best Star Wars figure I have ever owned and I've been getting them since 1978. If we are ever so lucky as to get Star Trek figures by Hasbro I will truly be a happily broke fan! I am starting to think that 3 3/4" figures should stick to the 5 Points of Articulation figures like the Iron Man 3 and Star Wars Saga Legends figures. The collector range could be like this 6" Black Series range. Actually for Star Trek it would be best if they had 7 POA like Galoobs TNG and Zica's Six Million Dollar Man figures. The knee bend is needed so our captains and crew will look right sitting in their bridge stations.
Same here in Lafayette at Toys R Us. They had a case of the 3 3/4" assortment, but were all sold out of the 6" figures. For the first time in all my years of Star Wars collecting I was left feeling really disenchanted at the sight of new 3 3/4" figures. 6" Darth Maul and Sandtrooper will be mine!
There was that brief moment when I thought that the Square Enix figures from SDCC were From Hasbro's presentation. I'm getting so tired of all the letdowns from Star Trek license holders. When are they going to realize that there are those of us that would buy up everything on 1701's list?
If only. I keep hearing from people all over asking the same question, "Why are there no Star Trek toys from Into Darkness or TOS, or for 25th Anniversary of TNG or the 50th Anniversary?" If nothing happens in time for the 50th, than CBS and Paramount need to sell the Star Trek brand to Disney too!
Even NECA upped their game with more creative ways to hide articulation. That Picard is nothing more than a statue being passed off as an action figure. For me it brings nothing new to the table and will be an easy pass. Sorry if this offends, but that's just not my cup of Earl Grey.
