#97059 Star Trek: Lower Decks

Posted by Matty-lad on 11 October 2020 - 03:25 PM

I have to say that after being dubious after episode 1, the finale was excellent.

I am really looking forward to season 2 now.

Target, 1999.

Again I was gutted when the Troi and Barclay transporter figures weren't released although it was weird they were differently coloured to the original TNG ones.

At least they completed TOS with Chapel and Rand.

This is 1 of the main things I was upset about getting cancelled. I got so excited when I saw this in magazines.

There's also been announced the convention exclusive M'Ress and Arex from the Animated Series. They look great but I fear could be a bit difficult to track down, especially here in the UK.

#89513 Concept Designs for the 2009 Playmates toy line available online...

Posted by Matty-lad on 25 May 2017 - 03:14 AM

Hello all,


Sorry to pull up an old thread but I just found these designs for figures that I'm assuming Playmates were going to release and this looks like the best place to put it for now......




This seller also had the 12" Chekov prototype figure that I have never even heard of. I know it was unreleased however I've never seen anyone mention it getting to this stage....


Take care,


#89245 What is the rarest playmates figure?

Posted by Matty-lad on 09 May 2017 - 12:22 PM

Very true however it was never released over here in the UK. I ended up spending quite a bit of money getting it from eBay USA. Worth it though.

Shuttle set two is available for pre-order in the UK - £75, that's a whole ten pounds cheaper than set one!... :/


Discount code which knocks £9 off - EAGLEMOSS12

Discount code which knocks £20 off - SHUTTLES20


Only one code can be used, so go with the latter. ;)

While I get the whole sexist thing, I am actually really happy we are getting a different uniform than previously.

So I have received my USS Defiant and I have to say it is impressive. It's already been put away for Christmas by my parents, but I love it. What surprised me the most was the box is specific to the ship and not just a new sticker like previous exclusives (even though technically it's a different ship.)


Thanks to J-R for helping me get it.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO Matty-lad  :djparty:

Thank you kindly. Managed to persuade the wife to buy me the Klingon Bird Of Prey, 3 Pop figures and 2 of the Skeleton figures.

Take care,

#78311 Review: Cadet Howard

Posted by Matty-lad on 15 November 2014 - 03:40 PM


Great review as always. Here's a strange question for you. How are her hips? I've had 2 of these figures and both if them had dodgy right hips that broke off once you started turning them.

Since I live in the UK, I was wondering if we had a dodgy batch or I was just unlucky?

Keep up the great work.

Take care,

Hey all,

Just got the next set yesterday. It was the Ferengi Maurauder and the USS Dauntless but also came with a new binder. Really happy about that since my other one is already full.

Take care,
