Diamond Select Toys is shipping some very long awaited items this week, including Captain Kirk from the new Star Trek Select line and series 1 of the Star Trek Legacy Minimates.
I’ve been waiting for this for a while, so I’m pretty happy to see Trek hitting in a big way this week from DST. The Star Trek Select line looks by all accounts to be a winner of a series even in this early going. Kirk is extremely faithful in his representation and looks spot on like actor William Shatner. And who’s going to complain about getting a free Khan?!
As for those Minimates, I’ve been waiting forever for them. Some of these characters have never seen action figures of any kind before and they’re all classics from their respective shows/movies.
So yes, there is a good sized amount of Star Trek merch coming this week, but that’s far from all DST has in store for you tomorrow at comic and specialty shops. You’ll also find the very cool ‘Hulk through the ages’ box set of Minimates and the super-cool Han Solo in Carbonite bank – that could easily just double as an awesome desktop or collector’s shelf item.
Check out what’s new and in stores tomorrow:
