Star Trek Select
Posted 24 August 2012 - 08:42 PM
We first told you about these the other week, but now DST has released new images and info on their new Star Trek Select line.
For years, Star Trek fans have repeatedly opened hailing frequencies, demanding the return of 7-inch Star Trek figures -- well, Diamond Select has heard their transmissions! This winter, DST plans to release the first in a line of Star Trek Select figures, depicting iconic characters from across the Star Trek universe in the 7-inch scale fans have asked for. Each figure will come in DST's famous Select packaging, and will include a diorama-style display base as well as interchangeable parts to recreate scenes using that diorama. And the first release in the line is the most iconic Star Trek character of all, Mr. Spock!
Depicting Mr. Spock as he appears in the classic episode "Devil in the Dark," this figure includes a cave diorama with a Horta alien -- the first Horta toy ever made! Spock himself will have interchangeable legs for standing or crouching poses, and interchangeable hands to hold a phaser or establish a mental link with the Horta. He even comes with an alternate screaming head! The figure will be available in early 2013, and will be followed by James T. Kirk, as well as numerous other important and fan-requested characters from the Star Trek diaspora. The Marvel Select line celebrated its 10th anniversary this year, so here's to ten years of Trek Select!
Beam aboard this new Star Trek toy line today and pre-order Mr. Spock at your local comic shop, or your favorite online retailer!
Once again, not sure if I'd buy these. We'll see.

Kirk just seems like he'd look ridiculous if you tried to give his arms less of an extreme pose.

I'm also going to wait and see what Kirk looks like - the art really didn't do the spock figure justice so it will be interesting to see what direction Kirk and Khan take. I'd be hoping we'd see if Kirk and Spock are successful: McCoy, Picard, Data, Worf, Movie Khan, Uhura & Scotty, Sisko, Janeway, 7of9 and The Borg Queen.

Nothing new under the sun.

Yeah. Mine too. I actually have more figures produced by DST then AA. Wether we like it or not DST did try and change the marketing approach of the Trek line once they got it. I felt that as soon as they took it over. They changed from a wave of 4-5 figures to trying to do two-three figures with many variants. I'd say DST put their unique mark on the line. For good or worse!

I'm hoping these will be successful, I'd quite like to see Picard, Data and Worf and McCoy (with Salt Vampire in McCoy's quarters scene from "The Man Trap")
