    The Galoob TNG figures are actually my favorite Trek toyline. Sure, they were kind of no-frills and the articulation was simple, but they were toys meant to be played with and didn't require you refinance your mortgage to buy them all.

    They were certainly better than Playmates' Star Trek XI figures, IMO.

    Based on the new pics of the Kreo BoP, I think it's safe to say that it looks underwhelming from the front. They got rid of the defining Klingon design element of a head on a thin neck, so now it looks like a generic fighter craft.

    That's what it looks to me too. I think it's safe to say that it's Bird of Prey in name only.

    ^ which doesn't look like a scrawny fighter craft and I was talking about the Klingon Bird of Prey.

    Oh look, it's the 22nd century Romulan ship with out-of-place Dominion warship nacelles!

    Not sure if anyone's posted it yet but here's a pic of the Kre-O Gorn.

    (Oh, and Galoob was acquired by Hasbro so it could totally come back!)

    And that's the cool alien from the Kelvin bridge! But ... no Pope Robau?

    I think the only way Galoob name would come back is if Hasbro did a series of 2-inch Titanium diecast Star Trek ships like they did for both Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica.

    Different alien (Grasia) but supposedly same actress who played the non-CGI parts of Alnschloss K'Bentayr. I also see the mysterious Lt. Sprog in that set.

    Patience, me boy - not until you see the white smoke go up from the rooftop of Bad Robot HQ.

    ..and if it's Gray Smoke...,

    ... that means they just decided to toss Robau into the fire... :devil:

    Personally I'd prefer Action Fleet vehicles but I'd really like Johnny Lightning Star Trek ships to make a comeback. Those were nice.

    Either way I couldn't manage to find the new Enterprise that Mattel allegedly produced. I ended up settling for the Hallmark ornament, which is actually pretty cool.

    I'm curious to know if KREO's are all hasbro has planned for the new movie, it would not surprise me, given as how the playmates action figure and playset line bombed, (I remember reading about all the stuff they had planned, but never released, a shuttle for the figures, a narada drilling platform playset, a star trek "cop" roleplay helmet) I would have loved to see some of that stuff, but I have to admit, playmates really borked the line by releasing a shoddy, incomplete bridge set. I got what they were trying to do, it just wasn"t a good idea. and vinyl mats are not acceptable as floors. Hopefully Hasbro releases a small line of figures, with the COMPLETE crew.

    I forgot about the Action Fleet vehicles, even though I've got quite a few of them in a big box in my closet. Those were awesome. Ditto for the Johnny Lightning ships.
    Most people had to find the Hot Wheels nuEnterprise from online stores. They were released fairly late, after most retail outlets had stopped ordering more ships for their shelves, IIRC.
    I think Kre-O is all we're getting from Hasbro for Star Trek XII. With the movie's release now only months away, anything else would have been revealed at the recent Toy Fair, IMO.

    I pretty much agree with you, Hasbro is playing it safe given how poorly the playmates line did. I'll still be buying the majority of the kreo's though. Along with several of the hot wheels ships and the kelvin ornament.

    Scotty...

    OOps... No... ... don't know my left from my right apparently... :(

    Where's Dr. McCoy??

    I don't see a dark haired, blue shirt one other than Spock...
    (with the pointy ears)

    ...and who's the Red-head in the front row on the right??


    And... how come No Female ones??
    (though I do see Uhura displayed on the wall in the back.)

    I also wonder who got taken out of the display and replaced by the two (three?) extra Klingons??

    They drew a pair of boobs on it so i'm guessing Uhura.
