FIRST LOOK: Playmates 6" 2009 Star Trek Movie Figures
Star Trek: Jay Cochran - 2009.01.17
I woke up this morning to find this little surprise in my inbox, a first look at what appears to be the James T. Kirk figure form Playmates Toys 2009 Star Trek movie line. Though it is possible the appearance of the final version of this figure may change from it shown here, it does seem like they got the likeness of actor Chris Pine who plays Kirk in the new movie down pretty good.

Playmates who brought us a tone of fantastic Star Trek toys in the 90's will be launching an entire line that consists of 3 3/4", 6" and 12" figures along with playsets and vehicles for the new movie.

The Star Trek movie will open in theaters on May 8, 2009 and new toy line from Playmates should start hitting shelves sometime around April 2009. CLICK HERE for more information about the movie, and stay tuned to TNI in the near future for more info and images on the toys.

More ugly toys from Playmates. This is what happens when studio suits let money be the decision maker rather than quality.

The likeness to Pine is good, the Phaser is at least interesting looking, but....the cosmic cardigan sweater ( his tunic) and throwback articulation just does nothing for me. Nothing about this excites me, so I'll have to wait and see what else comes along.

WOW. [b]Playmates[/b] might be saving me some money too! The [i]Terminator[/i] stuff was god awful. No wonder they don't answer your calls and hide their US-based phone number on their website! My friend is a dealer trying to get an appointment with them for the 2009 US Toy Fair and it&#... read more

Looks like I will have to be saving some serious extra cash this year! Playmates looks to be the new wallet crusher for me... This line sounds awesome.

That's a terrible looking figure. It looks like a throwback to some bootleg figure sold in dollar stores in the '90s. Not a chance that I'll waste money on this line.

I don't think the figure looks aweful but I'm not sure I can get into another toy line. Especially considering it's a different company, different scale, based on a whole different Trek time line, I don't see how they'll fit n with the figs I already have. I'm sticking with... read more
