    I'd love a continuation of the 3 3/4 line.

    Not when it comes to toys--that one's real simple. Hasbro holds a license from CBS to make a full range of action figures, vehicles, and role play toys like they do their Star Wars, G.I. Joe, and various Marvel Comics (Spider-man, Iron Man, Avengers, etc.) lines.

    Hasbro opted to just make Kre-O Trek toys. Their future plans for Trek toys is anyone's guess.

    Youll have to buy them online if they're not sold out. ALL the Hot Wheels ships SOLD OUT on Amazon. I did get my Kelvin though!

    Gotta agree this was the problem with the 2009 action figure line. They would have been much better off concentrating on a single size and producing a larger range of them rather than trying to split up the pie with all the different figure size variants.

    I also got the feeling Playmates took the licence for granted a bit. They thought they'd be able to produce a large range like they did back in their 1990s heyday, so they left out figures like "standard uniform" Chekov and McCoy presumably on the assumption that they'd just be able to release them as part of a second wave at a later date. Of course, the second wave didn't come. :(

    Anyone know why the Hallmark Kelvin is going for $100 on ebay?
    I thought the Hallmark figures were usually between $30-$40

    The person who's selling it on eBay wants to make $60-$70 in profit.

    Toys R Us is about the only place in my area that seems to sell Star Trek toys. It's a shame. Probably because they don't sell as well.

    Looking at completed auctions, all the $100+ ones are for the SDCC exclusive battle-damaged variant.

    The more exclusive the item, the higher the asking price.

    If it's one of the ones that makes sound/vibrates, set it to Klingon mode if you really want to piss off the cat.

    OK.....I see as they are preorder. The Hallmark ornaments have not been released yet. I wish we could get a decent model kit of the Kelvin.

    I found another Hotwheels enterprise at Wal-Mart, despite their best efforts to keep Trek stuff of their shelves, it was hiding in the corner like a diecast cockroach. In Wal-Mart's defense (can't believe I'm uttering that phrase), the customer base they have, 99.9% of kids and 95% of adults who visit there are not interested in Star Trek merchandise. as another poster stated elsewhere, alot of us Star trek fans have a little bit of delusions of grandeur when it comes to how popular we think star trek is out in the world. (not very) I am thankful enough for the tie in merch. we did get.
