Re: Toys out early!

I was never one to collect toys...

The only thing I will probably get is an Enterprise.

A really good online source I have used for these things previously is www.newforcecomics.com. Rick (the owner) has always been top notch with his customer service and his prices are usually some of the lowest around.

I so bad want to get the 3/4" figures, but if I want a normal looking set I'll have to get two Spocks and two...Sulus? (Either Sulu or Chekov end up in their cadet uniforms with these figures, along with McCoy.)

Then there's the fun of trying to get the heads switched...

The things we're willing to do for Trek...

*sigh*
Dude, I love customising as much as the next guy but you'll be going to a lot of effort for no reason.

McCoy and Chekov in standard uniforms aren't in WAVE 1 of the toys, but they'll be along in wave 2 in the Autumn. It's not like Playmates is only releasing 10 3.75" figures, so relax!

Anyone have a clue when these will get to the UK and what price they'll be?

Re: Toys out early!

I'll have to grab at least a couple of these! They look pretty good all things considered. And it's been so long since TREK toys of any kind have been at mass retail it'll be a trip back in time in ways.

Re: Toys out early!

I'm glad to hear that some of the toys are starting to trickle out. As I've said on previous postings, I ordered all the stuff I want through my local book store, Comics to Astonish in Columbia, so I'll either see it in the Previews or get a happy surprise when I show up for my weekly stack of comics.

I may not be as young and spry as I used to, but hopefully i'll get the full sets of goodies I ordered.

Forbidden Planet have the Enterprise available to pre-order. Apparently it's out at the end of April.

^You mean u actually play with them?! I thought people only collected them to look at and never open....

If that was a reply to me, I wouldn't exactly call modding a figure "playing with them".

I have display shelves. I prefer the idea of McCoy and Chekov being in their Enterprise uniforms rather than the cadet ones.
PO-TAY-TO or PO-TAH-TO... Trekkie or Trekker... moddling [modeling] or playing... it is all the same thing. I don't really care if u do or not. My comment was about people who buy toys they never open or use... just let them collect dust or use as 'investments'. I have always considered it a laughable thing. Like they said on Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer "A toy isn't a toy unless it's loved by a child."

I have many fond memories of playing with my 3-piece Star Trek model kit... phaser, communicator and tricorder... until they finally fell apart, then I saved and bought another kit and played with it.
My paper route paid for every model kit I could buy. Every ship, the bridge set and Spock shooting the 3-headed monster.

in Germany, they ask 12,95€ for one which is MORE than double.
More than double is about right for all Star Trek books, comics, toys, etc. sold internationally. Always has been.

If you get a local distributor they'll be cheaper than air-freighted mail order. But not by much.

Hey...here's a question.

Any online sources we'd be sure to get what we want from?

I always went crazy during the previous PLAYMATES days, having to go to a dozen different stores to find all the figures I wanted.

Easier to buy online, even if it costs a little more.
Amazon.com has some

Was at Walmat and Target today, only Walmart had anything; the figures with bonus bridge section included. One quarter of the display rack was already sold.

Re: Toys out early!

Hrm. I seem to remember there being a small scale (1/50 or so?) version of the movie Enterprise announced a while back, but I'm beginning to think I remembered wrong. I'd really like one in that scale to put on my desk at work. Ah well. I went hunting today and came up with zip. Going to try TRU tomorrow. I'm excited to see Trek back on shelves!
