So I got cadet Chekov...
It's really amazing that Playmates is doing these and the Terminator figures because, while not perfect, the lines are like night and day in terms of quality.
Chekov comes with a decent number of accessories, including a removable belt with working holster for a phaser (and a sculpted-in tri-corder which I wish was removable), a stand (starfleet logo), a nice bridge office chair, and a nice little computer console, and also a datapad and of course a phaser.
The sculpt on Chekov's head is MILES superior to Kirk's, so keep that in mind with these figures... Kirk's head is just ugly and that guy that reviewed it was a little biased after that I think.
The figure itself is decent articulated with a decent range of movement at the joints. I would say the sculpt is crisp, the deco is fairly plain and clean (as it should be), and ultimately it's a decent figure for the film it's from, and a good figure for customizing. The young headsculpt is nice, generic enough with a little personality, and will work well in SW figure customs or whatever.
This line seems to be doing a little more pizzazz with their figures. They're a bit better than the Terminator figures in every way, and that may give this line a little longer life. I plan to pick up more of them, especially if they're cheaper at Wal-Mart ($7 at TRU is what I paid). I'm in love with the consoles and chairs, and already am giddy to get some for my SW figures. I want both playsets too as I believe both are fairly inexpensive.
As figures for the movie they're from, I think they're ok with Kirk sucking some eggs... Not a bad little line, and maybe if the movie's a big hit the figures will have a little life. I could stand to see more characters for certain.
