Nice playsets...  I think the bridge is really a well made little thing, and the transporter looks fantastic.  I'm not sure how easily I'll get sucked into these, but for custom fodder I could see buying some of them at least, and probably the playsets too since the price is pretty low on those.  Cool toys for sure.

Both scales look great, but I'd stick with the 3 3/4" stuff as well.

Agreed... wouldn't count on it, but it would be nice if Hasbro's paying attention to that bridge scene.

I love the bridge, even if it's just a "playmat" under it.  I wonder what the figures will come with to make that more complete though?  Sounds like they may each come with a piece of the bridge.  For the chairs alone the $25 is worth it to me as a customizer though.  :)

More pics from TNI, most we have seen but better quality.



The first phase of the new Star Trek toys will include: fully-articulated action figures (3.75") which come with phasers, communicators and other accessories. ($6.99 each). Shown here is Spock, Scotty, Checkov, Sulu, McCoy, Uhura and Kirk.



Fully-articulated action figures (6") come with phasers, communicators and other accessories. ($8.99 each). Shown here is Kirk, Spock, Sulu, Nero, Uhura, McCoy, Scotty and old Spock.



Fully-articulated action figures (12") come with removable utility belts, phasers, communicators and other accessories. ($29.99 each each). Shown here is old Spock, McCoy, Kirk, Spock & Nero.



The USS Enterprise. The updated vessel from the new film includes lights and emits sound effects and actual film dialogue between the Kirk and Spock characters. It rests on a Starfleet shield base that attaches via a ball-and-socket tip that lets the ship pivot 360 degrees. ($30).









Amazing and intricate playsets with working lights and sounds that are compatible with the 3.75" action figures including the Enterprise Bridge($25) and the Transporter Room playset ($30).

The 3" figures look like they have more articulation than I thought at first.  Not bad.  I don't think I'll be buying very many at $7 each, however, especially when the 6" figures are only $2 more.  I'm not very big on the 6" scale action figures anyway, so I know I won't be buying any of those.

The 12" figures look very basic and while there may be a uniform or accessory piece that is interesting, I'm not paying $30 for them.  That's way too expensive.

The ship looks nice and would be a fun toy but again, pass.  The playsets, on the other hand, are the bright spots in the collection.  I'm interested to see exactly what the transporter playset does.  The bridge is very basic, really, but it works.  And the accessories are great for all sorts of things besides just the ST bridge.  And at $25 it's very affordable.  This looks like more fun and more potential than Hasbro's Mustafar playset and that rang in at $30 four years ago.

The more I see that new Enterprise, the more it scares me.

I've read elsewhere that that picture is of a prototype; the one seen here is the real toy.

Wow - I am so glad I stopped collecting Star Trek toys a while ago.

I was once a die-hard collector of the 5" Playmates line, but all of the scale changes really turned me off.

It's good to see that some things never change!

It looks like a commercial for the new line of toys has shown up on YouTube.

Cool commercial.  Almost seemed like a 1992 Playmates Star Trek commercial which really brought back some memories.  I was a big time Playmates Star Trek collector and I can't wait for that new bridge.

Found the new Trek toys at TRU. I found pretty much everything except the 4" stuff. Didn't buy anything, but I will.  :)
