Re: Is it possible to make Trek Toys Kids would want?

No, because kids these days are more into video games and won't buy enough toys to meet sales expectations and justify the costs of manufacturing them. There's literally no point making toys anymore unless they're designed to be collector's pieces.

And that's why (with a few exceptions) there haven't been any toy lines based on any blockbuster films (there were no toys or model kits based on Captain America: The First Avenger, for example and I would have loved to see those.) The best merch from the 2009 film, Barbie dolls of Kirk, Spock and Uhura (Ken as Kirk and Spock and Barbie as Uhura) and the plastic toy version of the Enterprise, I didn't even get.

I would have loved to see professionally made versions of the props, but nobody stepped up to the plate in the licensing department.
