Nimoy/Spock early promo pics
 
I found one of these images and a search found 2 more, this set of shots seems to be rare as I had to search awhile to find the other. Seen them before??

Maybe they decided it was too phallic for publication.

Looks like these might have been taken around the same time as the color pic on the side of the AMT model boxes in the 1970's, of Spock holding a different variety of lab equipment. I'd like to see a good quality image of that one too, but all I could find searching online (for the AMT model box side) was stuff that was very low res.

Edit:

Here's a low-res image of the AMT model box side.

While searching for that, I also found this, the AMT 1/12 Star Trek Mr. Spock Lunch Box Tin, which I hadn't seen before.

Perhaps these Spock pictures are all in the same series.

Judging from the early uniform with the big collar, these were probably taken along with all the other stills of William Shatner and Grace Lee Whitney used to promote the first season.

Any photos of Kirk holding the ship wearing the "in between" costume? There are plenty from the regular series, but I cannot recall any from this specific, pre-series period.

Doing a little searching, at least one with Spock shows up, but I don't see any with Kirk until this season 2 or 3 promotional image.

He's not holding it, but both the model and Shatner appear in this early image (unless the ship has been added later?).

Thanks for the links, Harvey. While the 2nd season publicity photos are well known, it seems sort of odd that there are no pre-series images of Shatner holding the symbol of series. Perhaps those behind the pics wanted variety, or felt Spock -- the resident alien -- almost "showing off" the ship was more "science-fiction-y" for selling that end of the series.

Looks like he is holding a Christmas candy dispenser. Otherwise, a pretty neat find.

It's the ship's Klystron Relay, of course...

Thanks a lot, guys. Now I'm obsessed with finding a decent scan of AMT-box Spock holding the weird metal pipes. Probably ruined my night. :scream:

I found this among my own files:

...but so far nothing on the Web. At least it's a clear look at the thing.

What do you mean by "in between costume?" Was it actually worn in the series or only for promotion?

You start out with "The Cage" costume: Spock in blue tunic with no black collar, and a science insignia.

Then comes the "Where No Man" version: Spock and Kirk both in chartreuse with no black collar, and both have command insignias.

Then the "in-between" design has a tall black collar and straight-edged rank stripes on the cuffs. Worn only for embarrassing publicity stills.

Then comes the S1 uniform, with just a few tweaks and adjustments across the first few episodes. :)
