I meant figures based on the TV show...  They'd said they were continuing the 3.75" format to expand into more territory at one point or another, and the TOS was I believe their expanded territory.

Wow - that's surprising - I thought Art Asylum/Diamond had the lock on all Star Trek from TOS, TNG, DS9, Voyager and Enterprise, as well as the first nine Star Trek movies. I thought all Playmates had the rights to was the latest Star Trek movie.

Yeah so did I...  I think it was Cool Toy Review that posted they were saying about expanding the line to TOS stuff though, as well as continuing the 2nd wave of the new movie figures.  Maybe it's because of the differing scales?  Or perhaps these are new-movie-ish versions of TOS stuff?  *shrugs*  No pictures so who knows if it'll even happen.  It was somewhere in this thread though.

Art Asylum had a blog post that made it sound like they may have worked out a deal with Playmates somehow...

With the announcement of Playmates Toys’ to include TOS in their Galaxy Collection at the Dallas Fall Toy Fair, how does this affect DST’s license? Does it diminish it at all? Has DST’s license not been renewed? Thanks.

DSTChuck: Gee not sure– maybe its none of the above and Playmates and DST cooked something up….Hmm…time will tell.



It was somewhere in this thread though.

Here you go, this was the press info - I bolded the TV Trek part...

Aw crap.  I've done well with a selection of the Art Asylum Trek stuff, but now I want the smaller scale too.  Thankfully I really limited my purchases of AA stuff.

If they worked out something with AA...  Could it be possible we'll see ST:TNG far behind?

I'll cream my pants.  It's probably the only property I'd get in up to my eyeballs other than Star Wars...  ST:TNG would have me buying in galore, customizing...  The works.   I'm tearing up a little at the thoughts even.  :'(

I hope they make TNG figures in 3.75" scale, I would definitely buy those.  I am a huge TNG fan!

Bought two Uhura's at TRU yesterday with the 50% off Star Trek toys coupon I got in my email.  Got them for $3.50 each and had $5.00 TRU rewards cash coupon too, so I got them at $1.00 each! :o  Very nice price for a figure that is not very easy to find. :)

Has anyone bought the Vintage Retro line?  Did they re-make all the originals?

I snagged the Mego-ish Green Arrow that is out and have a nostalgic need for at least Kirk and Scotty from the Retro Trek line now.

Of the Mego figures I think they did everything.  I know I saw the Romulan and some other stuff, so I think that stuff all got made if the Romulan got made.

I believe they have remade everything from the Mego line, and even some that were never made, like Sulu, Chekov, and Khan from 'Space Seed.'

I wish I had bought these when they were more available. I only have Kirk and the Klingon which was the first wave, and I picked those up at the now-defunct Star Trek Experience that was at the Las Vegas Hilton. My LCS has a few, but at $20 for Enterprise crew and $25 and up for aliens each, I don't have any. I'm hoping for EMCE/Diamond to offer them again.

Amazon and Ebay has them on average of $15 a character give or take...I am gonna fight the urge, but that vinyl bridge set is pretty cool looking...I think a neighbor or family friend had that when I was younger.

Did the second waves of Playmates' Star Trek movie line ever come out? I've seen pictures of a 3.75" wave and a 6" wave, but no online retailers seem to have ever had it "in stock".
