    Yes they did. Off the top of my head, I recall TOS Enterprise and Romulan Bird of Prey, and the Enterprise-E. And I think there was an Excelsior, or maybe it was the Enterprise-B. They were rather plasticky-looking, but had fun electronic lights and sounds.

    The ROM Bop was Art Asylum, that also had Excelsiors and Klingon Bops

    There was also a Playmates version, it was the penultimate release of their electronic starships (Enterprise from Insurrection was the last). The original Playmates' lines were running out of steam by then so I don't think it was released in the same numbers as previous ships.

    I'd like to see their proto-E from FC canonized as another ship class :D

    They say August now instead of July. But it is August now, so I don't know. Hopefully they'll be in soon.

    I've seen some websites updating the release to 30th of September... Guess they've been delayed

    If it’s true they’ve been delayed again it’s disappointing but not surprising.

    Like I said before, given that we still have some supply chain problems here in the US. Star Trek toys won’t get a priority to unload from the ships over food, living essentials, high end electronics, cars, etc…

    But if it’s not a supply chain issue but something more at the production level that could spell trouble for the lines revival overall.

    Haven’t looked anywhere else but it looks like all but Picard, Riker and Spock are in-stock on Amazon.

    most listings have some good pictures from different angles than what we’ve seen before. Kirk and Kahn still look the best. Data…woof.

    looks like another big difference from the old line is that the neck is sculpted to the torso instead of being one piece with the head. Not a fan of printing the production/copyright info right in the middle of the back either.

    I’m tempted to try ordering Kirk to see if it actually shows up or gets delayed.

    It was still offering me an arrival date of tomorrow if I ordered first thing this morning so I did. We’ll see what they send me.

    Bezos is a Trekkie so maybe he pulled some strings to get the figures first. lol.

    Yeah, real tiny on the bottom of the foot. There was typically a “collectors number” on the opposite foot.

    Amazon delivered my package with the new Kirk. I’ll pop it open and see if it’s legit after I get some food.

    It’s legit. Very cool.

    now if they’d just make Bones, Sulu, Uhura and Checkov.
