'Star Trek' Merchandise

With Star Trek XI due to appear next May, word is starting to come out about new Star Trek toys and merchandise.

As reported by TrekMovie.com, 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.

The first phase of new Star Trek products will feature action figures, collectibles and toys for role-playing, some with interactive electronic features.

It is expected that more news will be forthcoming courtesy of the trade show, although fans are cautioned not to expect images from Star Trek XI. 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.

Knowledge of one product has been released already. Star Trek 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.

Can a real "Sombreroprise" be far behind?
