Now you're just making too much sense.
I couldn't help thinking, while I looked at the various uniforms in STID, how much more toyetic (or just retailer-friendly, I suppose) this film might have been to buyers. If Hasbro wanted to launch a new 3 3/4" Trek line, this could have been a nice place to do so.
Shuttlecraft and costumes and Klingons, oh MYYYY!
What may be logical to collectors, may not be logical, reasonable, nor intelligent to the market researchers at the toy companies.
Logic and reason have no place in business apparently.
Somewhere out there, is an alternate universe where Star Trek made a huge comeback in the toy world back in 2009 because Hasbro acquired the license then and went into Star Wars mode with it.
