It kind of irritates me that Hasbro has the licensing to make all sorts of toys from the entirety of Star Trek and all they've made so far were some Lego ripoffs no one bought.

They should have made all the Trek characters in 3 3/4 size and stuffed them on shelves next to the Star Wars figures, I know I'm not the only collector who would buy a James T. Kirk & a Luke Skywalker so they can team up to take out Darth Vader and his Klingon troops.
This is what makes me suspicious about Hasbro having the master toy license. It's entirely possible that Playmates is retaining some rights to the property. I can't fathom why Hasbro would dismiss two categories in which they excel (action figures and role play) in favor of another category that's already dominated by two other venerable players (LEGO and MegaBloks).

Doesn't make sense.
