The ‘Star Trek’ franchise has been taking science fiction fans where no man has gone before for over half a century! Over the years there have been a number of fantastical toys and collectibles produced by a vast assortment of different companies, but these next ones look to be setting the new high bar! Space may be the final frontier, but we’re only at the beginning when it comes to McFarlane Toys and the ‘Star Trek’ license! This year at New York Toy Fair 2018 McFarlane was showcasing the first of their upcoming ‘Star Trek’ line which will include 7″ scale figures and prop replicas for starters!
Kicking things off with their new 7″ scale figure line are two of the biggest names in the history of the ‘Star Trek’ franchise! If you’re going to launch a new toyline, you may as well come out swinging with the heavy hitters, and McFarlane has done just that with all new figures of Captain Kirk from ‘Star Trek: The Original Series’ and Captain Picard from ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’! These figures feature highly detailed sculpts, character specific accessories (like Picard’s Flute and an alternative “Make It So!” Hand!), and are fully articulated with a what appears to be 16+ points of articulation!
Diving into their new Role play products, the new ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Phaser is another new item that’s out of this world! It’s got a detachable Hand Phaser, and the body has an ejectable ammo clip! Plus the standard fare like lights, sounds, and some alternate lenses for the laser light to go through so you have different Phaser settings! The icing on this cake is that this high quality prop replica ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Phaser only has an MSRP of $35!
These are only the first offerings, and McFarlane officially has the license to the entire ‘Star Trek’ brand with the exception of the ‘Kelvin-Verse‘ (aka “The J.J. Abrams films”)! With as good as these look, here’s hoping that this line will live long and prosper!
