Realistically, it seems we're going to see a mix of some TOS and TNG redesigns, and figures from Discovery and the Picard series. But it remains to be seen whether the company will seek to reissue all the TNG bridge crew, for instance, over time, and whether they'll seek to go deep into series like TOS, TNG & DS9, or Enterprise for that matter. 

 

Traditionally, the bridge crew characters were the best sellers, with the company recognizing that 7/10 buyers were adult collectors who don't take the figures out of the boxes. But we'll have to wait and see if the company will seek to do some crowd-pleasers like the TNG bridge crew, or go deeper to cater to super fans.
 
I've split my own wish list into two series, assuming the company will do DS9 at all, and have tried to keep it somewhat realistic. Of course, so many characters from TNG have already been made, but perhaps there will be a willingness to do some versions of main characters in outfits we haven't seen before, or tackle the super-popular cameo characters, like Shelby, who was actually discussed by Chris Overley in the late 1990s. Obviously, there are lots of unproduced characters from the later seasons of Deep Space Nine as well, much more than from TNG.
 
The Next Generation
1. Shelby
2. Admiral Nechayev
3. Wesley in early seasons tri-color striped uniform
4. Alyssa Ogawa
5. O'Brien in red uniform
 
 
Deep Space Nine
1. Weyoun
2. Martok
3. Damar
4. Ezri Dax
5. Sisko in First Contact Uniform
 
 
Let me know your top 5 from whichever series!

I really want to see figures from Enterprise. I have characters I want from all over the franchise and five choices isnt enough to cover it all but I guess to get the ball rolling I want:

Enterprise Season 1
1. Captain Archer
2:TPol
3: Trip
4: Dr Phlox
5: Shran

I want more than those and I would like Space Suits and other than just 1st Season looks, but for now thats a start!

I didnt even think about Enterprise! Got to get the main crew and at least Shran. Morgan is right that Shelby, Ezri and Martok are a must.

Id really like:

Admiral Janeway from Endgame
Ensign Nog
Colonel Kira
Capt. Jelico
Chancellor Gorkon

Maybe Top Five for each show and movie would really be the way to go. Theres just so much that I want to see from everything, even updating some if not all to the new articulation. I love compiling wishlists and polling when the manufacturer and development teams take that information into consideration. Im not sure when Playmates Toys will be ready for that type of fan interaction but I suggest going to the Playmates Toys website, let them know you like what you are seeing, and watch Look at My Star Trek Toys on YouTube, also look up FormerTwink on YouTube and watch his videos discussing Playmates Toys. Subscribe and comment! I think we can all help to make this the best Stat Trek toy line ever and get some of our long time wishes fulfilled!

Of course, though at this point there is so many of them.

 

It's curious that the company thought everyone wanted the original Enterprise first, instead of the refit/A for instance.

Matt Decker. That's the only one that was missing for me; surprising that they didn't do it back in the day. They did Captain Dathon, but not commodore Decker?

Very cool choice! There's a whole list of TOS movies characters that the company didn't get to, and did the strangest things instead, like two versions of Tarchannen Geordi for example, and then a whole lineup of TMP uniformed characters, even though they were in one movie dressed like that instead of seven.

 

Hopefully they'll go back to more TOS movies characters that they'd never done, besides Spock. We still don't have McCoy, for instance, in a TWOK uniform, for instance.

I would absolutely love a three pack from Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home that looked like the inside of the San Francisco City Bus and we had figures of Kirk, Spock and The Punk with the Boom Box! I would also love to have another set that duplicates the scene of Spock in the tank with the Whales while Dr Taylor is giving her presentation. Two very memorable scenes all in one movie!

The only 2 Im rooting for are the Prometheus and the Akira.  I realize thats a bit of a stretch but since DST is having issues with the Enterprise-C I'd like to see Playmates do a sort of Black series for the ships as well.  The Prometheus is a bit of a stretch but the Akira is a well known fan favorite (its dare i say the Boba Fett of Star Trek).

Yes, the company could easily do like 20 figures from the original movies right now, and there could still be characters left unproduced. It's wild how many were left unproduced.... along with the Enterprise A/refit, which seems like malpractice in retrospect. (But then, how good would it have actually been? People are quite satisfied with the DST A now tbh).

 

It's very reassuring to see them doing some original movies figures, I hope we get McCoy too, at least, and Sulu.

I can't think of just five figures. Aside from bridge crew/main characters for all eras (which is a lot of figures in and of itself!), my 'priority wishlist' figures are:

-TOS Lokai and Bele
-TOS Gary Mitchell
-TOS Salt Vampire
-TOS Ruk
-TOS Khan
-TOS Romulan
-TOS Kor the Kingon
-TMP Spacesuit Spock
-TMP Spacesuit Kirk
-STII David Marcus
-STII Savvik

-STIII civilian Kirk

-STIII civilian McCoy

-STIII civilian Sulu
-TNG Borg
-TNG Romulan Tomalok
-DSC Spacesuit Burnham
-DSC Klingon Vok
-DSC Klingon T’Kuvma

I tried to steer clear of most characters that were covered in the 90's toyline, but honorable mention goes to the following:

-TOS Sarek & Amanda
-TOS Trelane
-TOS Horta
-STIII Kruge (and pet)
-STVI Chang
-TNG Sela
-TNG Q
-TNG Lore (Descent)
-TNG Guinan
-ENT Shran
-DS9 Jem Hadar Soldier
-DS9 Weyoun
-DS9 Founder
-DSC Book

I would love to see a Q in Judges Robes figure that was slightly revised from the older salt shaker figure that comes with throne with lower seated torso with a trapdoor similar to old Kenner Taun-Taun and Dewback, so figure appears to be seated without the need for soft goods robe. There are several other figures I want to see, but this one takes priority. I also hope for a 5 inch version of how he appeared first on the 1701-D bridge. Go back from whence thee came!
