Action figure updates: DST Borg, Discovery Titans, and Mego

Got a bunch of Star Trek action figure updates today, including the latest from Mego and Titan Merchandise. But first, let's check out something new from Diamond Select Toys:

We got our first look at DST's forthcoming Star Trek Select Borg action figure a few weeks ago, and now it's up for pre-order - Entertainment Earth anticipate an March release. DST have released a new image, which disappointingly doesn't show the arm implants included:


The description makes it sound really fun though, with the assortment of interchangeable parts allow this one release to make many different drones (hopefully DST will release many more photos to show off this feature!):
A Diamond Select Release! Resistance is futile! No Star Trek fan can pass up the opportunity to own the ultimate Borg action figure! This 7-inch, fully poseable action figure is based on the Borg's appearance in Star Trek: The Next Generation, and includes multiple interchangeable parts, including human and Klingon heads, various eyepieces, different tool arms and a removable vest. You can create dozens of different configurations and build an army of Borg! With a full 16 points of articulation, this figure comes packaged in display-ready Select figure packaging with side-panel artwork. Sculpted by Patrick Piggott!

At the other end of the action figure continuum, Titan Merchandise debuted their first Discovery toys at the Star Trek Las Vegas convention recently, and have now released high res images of them too - Hopefully these will also get a wider release at some point... So far they've produced a single 3.5 inch Titans vinyl figure, of Michael Burnham, and a 4.5 inch vinyl USS Discovery model too:



Finally, Mego have been releasing new photos of their first wave of action figures in the Mego revival on their social media channels. That includes all of the Star Trek characters in this initial assortment, the mirror-Kirk and Spock two-pack, and Sulu and Chekov. All are available now, exclusive to Target.
