Action figure updates: Mego wave 4, and TNG goes bendable

Updates from two Star Trek action figures today, starting with our first look at the fourth wave of Star Trek figures in the Marty Abrams Present Mego retro action figure revival. Four characters are offered this time, with the first images coming via ToyWiz, which reveal new packaging designs following the current Star Trek products design style - They are expecting to ship in April.

First up we have Uhura, offered for the second time in this series, following the previous mirror universe version. This prime timeline version has of course been offered before in both the original Mego series and DST revival of a decade ago; the major difference this time appears to be a different hairstyle (the same one used for the recent mirror version).


Kirk and Spock are back again, both have had mirror and prime editions already, and for this wave are offered in dress uniforms, a first for Mego-type figures:



And finally we have a Romulan Commander, a slightly odd choice given another Romulan was offered in the previous wave! This version deviates from the previous loyal remake of the original Mego design (which kind of looks like he's wearing a leotard) with a much more screen-accurate uniform.


These figures should be available more widely than last year's releases, as Mego have recently revealed their next waves will no longer be Target exclusives.

Away from Mego, NJ Croce have announced a new addition to their range of bendable action figures, and their first TNG figures following previous TOS releases. Coming soon will be Captain Picard, and a not so often chosen season one style uniform!
