Very cool. I wasn't aware that those were in the works. I'd love to have those.

CoolEddie, I know you're talking about physical figurines, but if you ever use 3D rendering software, I can point you to a rather screen accurate version of Tom (as well as Crow and Gypsy) in .OBJ format that most modeling/rendering suites can import.

No, I didn't model them, but I did "challenge" the person who did as he was looking for a new subject to try.

Sincerely,

Bill

Well I've finally completed wave one of DC Universe Unlimited, just in time for everyone else to start finding wave two.

Here's the last, and easily best figure from the first wave, Hawkman:

Clever use of Servo in that one.

Good idea with the two-packs!

TOS Kirk and Gorn
TOS Kirk and Khan
Movie Kirk and Khan
Picard and Q
Sisko and Dukat
Janeway and Borg Queen
Archer and Silik
nuKirk and Nero


The list would go on and on and on....
I'm not sure that Hasbro actually has the rights to Prime Trek.
They do. Hasbro has a license to produce Trek toys from TOS to Star Trek XII.
DST currently has the license for trek in the prime timeline. In fact they are already working on a Trek Select line with TOS characters with elaborate/detailed backgrounds. The first two are Spock with the Horta from "Devil in the Dark" and a Kirk and Kahn in Engineering from "Space Seed."

Plus DST has done plenty of two packs of characters from TOS/TOS Movies/TNG.
Like they do with Star Wars, Hasbro isn't the only company to produce toys from a particular licensed property. In some instances, a big company like Hasbro can hold the master toy license and then sub-license out to other smaller companies for specific products.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I don't have the TNG Pez set but I do own the TOS version. I wish they had done one set for each of the five live-action series, but with Voyager they'd have had to omit a couple of characters and/or skip making a dispenser of the ship because, as we know, at any given moment there were nine main cast members. The Pez gift sets held just eight dispensers.

Still, it would have been fun to get all the series.

^Same thing with a DS9 set. Too many characters!

I have the TOS and TNG sets.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Yeah, you're right. DS9 always had more than seven main characters in the cast at any one time. Who knows, that could be why the Pez people didn't bother with DS9 and Voyager sets: they'd have to leave somebody out and that would just lead to catcalls and trolling. So they just stopped after cranking out the TNG set.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

DS9 could leave out Jake Sisko. Most fans wouldn't have a problem. The problem is deciding- pre or post Worf DS9? Jadzia or Ezri?

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I kind of wish they'd go back and do a few more TOS characters like the Jeffrey Hunter Pike, Nurse Chapel and Janice Rand, but I guess that ship has already sailed for the time being. Who knows about future Pez plans, though.

The 50th anniversary of "The Cage" hits around Christmas of 2014 and of TOS itself in the fall of 2016. Those would be great times to introduce new dispenser designs.
