    They do. Hasbro has a license to produce Trek toys from TOS to Star Trek XII.
    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    I always enjoyed Pez, I'm a casual collector. I don't have many, what ever has caught my eye. I have several Star Wars, mostly Darth Vader. I actually think this set is the best sculpted Pez set. I really like it, I'm glad I was able to find it.

    My buddy gave me the TNG Pez set for my birthday. As soon as I opened, my heart flew. It was a great way to celebrate the 25 years of TNG and to realize what a good show it was all over again. The characters look like they are modeled after the Season 3, 4 time period, which is when the show hit it's stride. I'd be less impressed if they used season one!

    My local TK Maxx had the Royal Starships doids for £9.99 and the Ewok 5 pack for £14.99! Bargain considering they go for twice that on eBay and specialist shops.

    When you convert pounds to dollars that makes the Ewoks a lot cheaper than most U.S. Toys 'R' Us stores are selling them for. The last time I checked the set was still going for $39.99.

    I greedily bought the lot. The accessories with the Ewoks and the B-A-D Starship droids means you can mix and match and create your own characters.

    I ordered the Diamond Select/Art Alsyum Enterprise-E from Big Bad Toy Store. I couldn't make it out to the comic shop at all and they had to put the ship back on the shelf, so I just decided I would order the ship online. It should be here in a couple weeks :)

    As a lifelong geek about the 1966-68 Batman series I wholeheartedly approve of this. We haven't had enough collectibles and toys based on the Adam West universe if you ask me. There were a slew of them made when the show was originally on the air but little since.

    Vincent Price Egghead figure, anybody? That would be eggcelent.
