after the reboot figures stillign on the shelves for so long I think the nails were hammered in for the 1/18th scale maybe Diamond Select will roll something out at a larger scale
The figures sat there forever because there were three freakin' sizes of action figure.
Gotta agree this was the problem with the 2009 action figure line. They would have been much better off concentrating on a single size and producing a larger range of them rather than trying to split up the pie with all the different figure size variants.
I also got the feeling Playmates took the licence for granted a bit. They thought they'd be able to produce a large range like they did back in their 1990s heyday, so they left out figures like "standard uniform" Chekov and McCoy presumably on the assumption that they'd just be able to release them as part of a second wave at a later date. Of course, the second wave didn't come.
