With Iron Mania still sweeping through theaters, I’ve been missing toy hype for a little movie opening this weekend – Star Trek Into Darkness. Wait a minute – what do you mean, there are no toys? I guess that even with the blockbuster status attained by the Star Trek reboot four years ago (incidentally, you will get the Star Trek reboot as an iTunes download for free if you buy your Star Trek Into Darkness tickets on Fandango), toy companies and retailers have a long memory when it comes to under-performing toy lines.
Thank goodness for the Original Series, the Next Generation, and the rest of the Trek licenses that Diamond Select Toys holds. It means we have some Trek stuff to run this week! Here’s the official pics of the upcoming Star Trek Select Captain James T. Kirk. I’m glad to see new Star Trek figures from DST, but I still have a special place in my heart for the original, more poseable Star Trek figures, from back when they were from Art Asylum.
Star Trek Select Kirk Cannot be Contained! New Packaging Shots Are Here!
We recently played Spot the Spock, but now it’s time to play Kick the Khan! The second Star Trek Select figure just got new packaging shots, so we thought we’d show you what Captain Kirk looks like in his new Select packaging.Kirk comes with an engineering room diorama base, a second set of hands, a broken phaser and a control rod, as well as a second set of legs so he can deliver a flying kick to the reeling figure of Khan himself! Look for him to arrive at comic shops and specialty stores in early June! Pre-order today with your local shop or favorite online retailer!
