star trek into darkness action figures?
 
I've been looking and haven't seen any. As I understand it, the ones from the last movie didn't do so well. Are they not going to put out action figures for STID?

I thought I heard the whole line got cancelled.

Really? I was hoping for another model of the ship!

The action figures. I have no idea about whether they're going to produce any ship toys though I know there will be a model of the Enterprise.

That company (Playmates) lost the license to make Trek toys awhile ago.

Hasbro (the company usually associated with Star Wars toys), got a complete license to make the full range of Trek toys from TOS to Star Trek XII, but there are no plans to make action figures right now.

It sounds like Hasbro's KRE-O and Mattel's Hot Wheels spaceships are going to be it in terms of STID toy merchandising, which is okay by me, because I'm kinda moving on from toy collecting.

I suppose the only good thing we'll get out of no action figures is no one can reasonably complain about a 'no Carol Marcus in her undies figure.'

Uh-oh... now you've done it.

Or complain if they did make one.

"Carol Marcus in her undies" will be the "Slave Leia" of Trek fandom...should making Trek conventions more interesting.

It'll just add more "Normal Flesh" tones to the sea of Orion Green ones.
:eek:

There'll probably be a run on Blond Wigs though. :rofl:

Shouldn't be to hard to kitbash a figure if they don't put out one: Just grab a Barbie, give her a trim and die her undies.

The lack of merchandise for STID is pretty wild.

Could it be some JJ secrecy thing and they're just waiting to unveil the figures after the movie comes out so they don't spoil anything?

By that point no one will care.

The figures for Star Trek 2009 were a pretty dismal failure.
