Old-TOS coming from Playmates?
Well here's something interesting... according to a press release posted on Toy News International Playmates is set to release a new array of Star Trek stuff, including continuations of there current lines, a new line called Starfleet Defenders which "includes a full array of movie characters articulated in small-scale in dynamic animated-style action poses. Collectible iconic mini space ships from the 2009 movie include the U.S.S. Enterprise, the U.S.S. Kelvin, and the Narada." And notably (given until now Diamond Select Toys has retained the licenses for TV series toys) a new line of Galaxy Edition figures based on The Original Series: "action figures and diorama’s based on the classic Star Trek series. These figures will be highly detailed with authentic life-like likenesses and feature over 16 points of articulation. Iconic scenes from the most popular episodes will be depicted in two-figure pack dioramas." Fascinating.
