All the latest super-deformed Star Trek toys

The trend in super-deformed cartoon/caricature style toys shows now signs of slowing down, and in just the past few months the world of Star Trek toys has seen many new examples. Continue below to check out all the latest releases.

Just out from Funko, is the first Star Trek figure in their new Dorbz line. Like the long established Pop! vinyl range, Dorbz have a particular style that is used across the various licensees Funko have. This first beaming Spock figure is exclusive to GameStop, although I'm sure it's just a matter of time until a regular Spock comes along as part of a larger Star Trek Dorbz collection.


Speaking of Pop! vinyls... The final figure in the Star Trek Beyond collection was belatedly released in August. The survival suit version of Chekov is also a GameStop exclusive, and joins the previous Fyi exclusive Kirk counterpart.


At a rather smaller scale, Bulls I Toys launched the Star Trek Chibis range in July. There are twelve TOS characters to collect, which are available either as one box set, or in blind bags which contain three figurines each. The box set comes with additional chrome-gold (50th anniversary of course) versions of the Kirk and Spock figures.



The blind bags meanwhile contain translucent variants of the characters, in either blue or glittery gold (as photographed by I Collect All The Things).



Bif Bang Pow had their latest Star Trek bobble head ready to go in August, this version of Sulu is of course based on his hallucinogenic moments in The Naked Time.


Hallmark launched their new characters-in-cars Squeelys range this September, including Captain Kirk of the car-ship Enterprise.



And finally, saving the weirdest until last... USAopoly's Funedibles came out of the oven in September, each character it modelled on food, and in the case of the Star Trek line at least it's call cakes! Available are "Captain Cup Kirk", "Spock Tart", and "Gorn Bread Muffin".







You can also find pins of the characters! (These ones were given away at the Star Trek Mission New York convention)
