Problem is the retail price. I'm not paying more than $10 for a 4.5" figure unless it's extra dandy. That's why I stopped collecting Star Wars 4" figures after 30 years.

Yeah, there had to have been dozens of prototypes of the Galor-class that they had built and hand-painted. They couldn't have all been thrown out. That thing was pretty much ready for production.
The absence of the D-7 is strange too, given the fact that it had appeared in various forms on TOS, TNG, DS9 and even Voyager. Those would have been slam dunks at retail and they would have all been cleaned out in weeks.

Oh dang, good spot! They swapped it out to feature Chekov in her place.

Chapel seems to consistently get diss'ed. Overall Chapel appears in at least 25 TOS episodes... which is basically 1/3 of all episodes. Then They brought her back for the animated series and again, Chapel appears in about 1/3 of the episodes.
So while the argument can be made that she wasn't cast as a main crew member, She is, I think, the character with the most recurrences in TOS, and thus a very prominate character in the series... which is why its the one character I think AA/DST messed up by never releasing.

I'm glad they offered Chapel as a Minimate.
Now if they'd just go as deep into TNG territory as they have with TOS, I'd be a happier collector.

The Original Series Bridge Crew TRU special, 1993
Here's yet another group of prototype figures of the TOS bridge crew, whose head sculpts differed from the eventual production versions.

The Salt Vampire seems doomed. It didn't even get a Minimate.

Wow, its been a while since I visited! So many incredible pics! Nice to see Chris Overley in a few of em. I wonder what he's up to today?
I must admit to being considerably dirty about that Bele figure - thats the clearest photo Ive seen so far, and I would have dearly oved that figure. Would have been a great fit for that warp factor wave too (the one that came with Kirk and Spock from City on the Edge of Forever).

Picard in Jacket Uniform, 1992
Here's a hand-painted prototype of the Picard figure from 1992. Note that aside from the top of the outer jacket being painted in the same gray color as the shirt, this figure is missing a holster on the right side and his lips have a different color than the rest of the face, unlike the figure where they're all the same skin tone color.
