Inspired by the Mego ‘Star Trek’ figures of the 1970s, Diamond Toys, is giving Captain Picard and the Borg the retro treatment! The company will kick off its ‘Star Trek’ Retro line in Winter 2012. ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ characters will go into production for the series’ 25th anniversary, starting with Picard and a Borg, with more to come.
At eight inches tall, the figures will feature real cloth costumes and asking price will be approximately $20 each.
The figures will be available at comic shops, specialty stores, and online retailers. They’ll also be on sale through the Diamond Comics Distributors’ Catalog.
But it doesn’t end there, kids! Go to Diamond Toys today and see what they have to offer! The Star Trek Replica’s section offers phasers, tri-corders and even tribbles, the ships section is chock full o’ goodness from the original series to the Enterprise E.
The Action Figures section is huge and offers a full range of classic figures, Next Generation, DS9, and feature films. This of course doesn’t take into consideration the many other fabulous toys, replica’s and other neat stuff packed into the easy to navigate web site. See item’s from such Sci-Fi main stays as Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Planet of the Apes and more.
There are tons of other cool items as well, my personal favorites are the Universal Monsters Select figures, like the Frankenstein Monster, Creature From the Black Lagoon and the Mummy action figures!
