'Star Trek' Merchandise
 
With <i>Star Trek XI</i> due to appear next May, word is starting to come out about new <i>Star Trek</i> toys and merchandise. <p>As reported by <A class="link" HREF="http://trekmovie.com">TrekMovie.com</A>, CBS Consumer Products, who is in charge of Stat Trek licensing, will attend the annual Licensing Expos in New York City this week and will have a large booth.<p>The first phase of new <i>Star Trek</i> products will feature action figures, collectibles and toys for role-playing, some with interactive electronic features.<p>It is expected that more news will be forthcoming courtesy of the trade show, although fans are cautioned not to expect images from <i>Star Trek XI</i>. As with the movie, details of the merchandise are being kept quiet for as long as possible. However, it is expected that merchandise will be aimed at a broader crowd than the traditional core Trek audience. <p>Knowledge of one product has been released already. <i>Star Trek</i> PEZ candy dispensers will be released in September or October of this year in an eight dispenser/candy gift pack. The dispensers will feature the original series cast, including: Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scotty, Uhura, Sulu and Chekov. There will also be a NCC-1701 Enterprise dispenser. The set will have a limited run of 250,000 units. <p>To read more, head to the articles located <A class="link" HREF="http://trekmovie.com/2008/06/09/trek-licensing-gearing-up-at-ny-trade-show/#more-2054">here</A> and <A class="link" HREF="http://trekmovie.com/2008/06/07/star-trek-pez-coming-this-fall/#more-2048">here</A>.<center></center>
