'Star Trek' Toys For 2009

2009 is shaping up to be a good year for fans of Star Trek toys, with products to be released in the spring and early autumn.

As reported by TrekMovie.com, there will be plenty of goodies for those who collect Star Trek toys. There will be two waves of releases, one before the release of Star Trek XI and one in September.

Many action figures will be offered, including figures from Star Trek XI, including Nero as well as the Enterprise crew. These ten figures will include: Kirk, Sulu, Uhura, Pike, Spock (two), Scotty, Nero, McCoy and Chekov. There will be larger figure sets offered too, ranging from six to twelve inches.

Playsets, available in March 2009 will be available including the Enterprise Bridge and the transporter room. These will be based on Star Trek XI and sized for smaller action figures. There will be electronic features including lighting and sound effects from the movie.

Ships from Star Trek XI include: The USS Enterprise, which will feature lights and sounds from the movie and comes with a display base; and Nero's ship, the "Narada" which is said to look like a giant black metal jellyfish.

Other toys will be appearing. In March, there will be a communicator, phaser and tricorder offered for sale. Each will have movie lighting and sound effects and the communicator has a flip-open cover. September's wave of toys will include a utility belt (which will hold the phaser and communicator,) a set of walkie-talkies and a "Phaser tag" game.

Most of the toys can be preordered and range in price from under twenty dollars for the communicator, phaser and tricorder, to $114.89 for the 12" four figure collector set, which includes Kirk, Spock, McCoy and one other character.
