What Do You Think of the New Star Trek Galaxy Figures?


Star Trek Galaxy Figures Video Review

The new Star Trek Galaxy Figures are the first official Star Trek figures since 1999 but will fans and collectors welcome the move?

To be up front and honest I've never been a big fan of the playmates toys and have often found them to be substandard with poor quality and sculpting BUT on figures of this size that are obviously targeted at a much younger audience that is, to an extent, understandable.

After all, this particular series of Star Trek figures is aimed at the younger, i.e. childrens, mass market.

As such I can forgive most of the discrepancies and inaccuracies but...

will I buy them?

Unlikely.

But what do you, or your kids, think of them?

A hit or a miss?

You can read what others think at the bottom of the page.

Will they be collectible? Are they worth buying as an "investment"?

I doubt it, unless...

The movie becomes a huge success and captures the imagination and hearts of a new generation of fans.

The problem, I believe, is that the Star Trek license is facing a crossroads.

It needs to start attracting a younger audience, a new generation of fans in order to survive

These 3.75" figures are highly detailed, fully-articulated, and come with removable utility belt, Phaser, and standing base.

The 3.75" figures will be compatible with all Star Trek playsets.

Each 3.75" figure will also come with a random Bridge & Transporter Room playset accessory that allows you build out the entire Bridge and Transporter Room playset when you collect all the 3.75" figures.

The Star Trek Galaxy figures include:

It has been a decade since Star Trek action figures were rendered in the traditional "play friendly" size. Now, with the new feature film, Playmates Toys returns to world of Star Trek toys in a big way with 10 3.75" action figures...(read more)


I'm starting tonight with half of the new 3 3/4" Star Trek wave 1. There are a total of ten in this first wave, and tonight I'll be looking at Kirk, Spock, Uhura, Original Spock, and Nero (the bad guy in the new film)...Michael Crawford MC Toys (read more)


The new Star Trek movie is the most anticipated movie of this year for me. I'm a big Star Trek fan and it's great to see that after a few years of a much-needed break, Star Trek has gotten a new lease on life from JJ Abrams. It's also great to see Star Trek toys back on the shelves. But the pics on the 'Net of these figures made them look rather disastrous. Surely they can't be that bad, can they?...(Read more) Dork Dimensions


I have to give Playmates some credit for at least attempting this ("this" meaning a 3 3/4" Star Trek line.) Star Trek figures have either been well-articulated, but too large and expensive, OR too small and lacking in articulation and detail. This one definitely falls somewhere in the comfortable middle.(Read more...G5TV)

What do you think?

Love them, or hate them?

Leave your reveiw and let me know.
