New Star Trek Movie Related Toys

New Star Trek Movie related toys are in the pipeline from Playmates with the first wave due out in Spring of 2009 according to the latest issue of Toyfare magazine (issue #140, pages 12-13). Going online, there several dealers already offering pre-order for these toys. Major release date is set for April 19, 2009 for this product line.

First off is the model of the U.S.S. Enterprise itself with flashing lights. It'll be about $30.00 - 40.00 range on average. I included the pic of the new Enterprise here for the simple fact that it gives a good view of what the top of it looks like.  So far, all we have seen is just side views of the ship

Then there are “Role Playing Props” that one can get: the phaser and communicator.

Then there will naturally be the action figures in three scales. The more common 3.75-inch and 6-inch size that will have play sets such as the Bridge ($25.00) and Transporter Rooms ($30.00) for them. They will also come in the 12” size as well. These actions figures will be very life-like, and fully articulated and will come with removable utility belts, phasers, communicators, tricorders and other accessories. Expected pricing for each scale is as follows: $6.99, $8.99, and $29.99). Then there are the 12” size (I.e. 1/6th scale figures) that I am in particular looking forward to. “Both” Spocks, then Kirk and McCoy, and then finally - Nero, the Romulan.

When these figures hit the stores this spring (and the second wave in the wall), you can expect to see a lot more “photo-comics” adventures dreamed up with these guys and posted online.
