    I don't know if it is the same in the US, but....

    I was in Liverpool TRU today, and I heard a tape playing on repeat near the action figure section.

    Included on the tape was......

    "Resistance is futile"

    "Your culture will adapt to service ours"

    "We will add your biological distinctiveness to our own"

    Inspired by this recording, I scoured the entire store for Star Trek toys but found NONE.

    Is this the same in the US.

    Playmates, the company that last had rights to make Star Trek toys (the company who was doing those Action Fleet-knockoffs, Strike Force, by throwing a fit with Paramount and demanding the ONLY toy license for Trek at the time) gave up the license after the line stopped selling, mostly due to Playmates' own mistakes (1701 problems, the Tribbles in package, exclusives, resizing the line, removing articulation, selling too few of core characters in main costumes) so no Trek toys are on shelves anymore , but next month, we'll be getting a 2pack of TOS-era Kirk and Roddenberry: http://209.197.117.27/databases/acti...ow_article=139
    And Paramount is shopping around for a new toy manufacturer to take up the Trek line of toys. Perhaps Hasbro could acquire it and get the MM Trek line back in business.

    Yeah, a Gene Roddenbary figure, pretty cool lookin' to, on StarTrek.com they have a color picture of the 6" figure 2-pack and it's up for pre-order at NewForceComics. Really cool too, it's Kirk sitting in his Captain's chair and Geen has his hand on Kirk's shoulder, but the really cool part is that even though it's a memorable collectible 2-pack, the figures have major articulation, Kirk has 18 points and Gene has 16. Kirk also comes with his communicator and phaser, I can't wait for this set! We need a Jedi Luke & George 2-pack like this.
