Where are the prime kreons hiding?

Remember, just less than a year ago, when Hasbro announced the details of the Star Trek Kre-o range, they mentioned plans for individual kreon figurines as well? There was to be a series of six nuTrek characters, released alongside the main wave of Into Darkness sets, and then later in the year, twelve more prime-timeline characters.

A little while later a German online retailer released the images to the right, of six of those prime figures. But then nothing seemed to happen, I assumed the line had been cancelled - Until one of my readers mentioned they had in fact all been released last year, in the Philippines at least. A couple of Filipino bloggers have reported on wave 2, thanks to TrekToy poster 1701 I came across The Geeky Guide to Nearly Everything's report, and Youtuber chefatron also posted a review. Between the two we can get a fairly good look at these figures, even if the rest of the world might be doomed to never actually see them in the flesh.

Here's the full line-up, with a few extra Borg drones thrown in for good measure:


The characters and packet codes are as follows:
  • 31491-11 - Captain Kirk
  • 31491-12 - Spock
  • 31491-13 - Worf
  • 31491-14 - General Chang
  • 31491-15 - Borg Drone
  • 31491-16 - Locutus
  • 31491-17 - Gul Dukat
  • 31491-18 - Khan Noonien-Singh
  • 31491-19 - Salt Vampire
  • 31491-20 - Mugato
  • 31491-21 - Quark
  • 31491-22 - Andorian Soldier
Here's a closer look at the Borg figures:


Hasbro have released two addition Star Trek Kre-O sets since the first wave, so maybe the line is still ongoing, hopefully we'll get more information at the next Toy Fair. Until then, for the best look at each of these characters you're likely to get outside the Philippines, have a watch of the (quite lengthy) Youtube review (after the jump):
