Star Trek original series fans, say goodbye to your bank accounts. In advance of this weekend’s annual Toy Fair convention in New York, Funko has released images of the first four ReAction Kenner-style retro action figures in their new Star Trek line. Today you can pre-order each of the figures from Entertainment Earth, with a projected March 2015 release.
Spock, Bones, Sulu, and Uhura and the first revealed, but we expect more to come this weekend in this and the other lines teased this past Christmas by Funko’s CEO as discussed here at borg.com.
Click on the figure images above to be among the first to pre-order the figures from online superstore Entertainment Earth. These first images look very similar to the original series crew from the popular Playmates line back in the early 1990s, sold in a boxed set shown here:
It’s the first time Funko is re-issuing a brand that had a similar-scale version previously in production. Playmates’ huge line of figures were slightly larger at 4 1/2 inches, and with more points of articulation. The Funko figures follow the 3 3/4 inch Kenner style consistent with the rest of their licensed figures in the series. We think these first figures look great, with great packaging design.
Look for a parallel line of action figures from Star Trek: The Next Generation coming soon from Funko.
