I would be so all over 4" Star Trek figures especially with decent sized vehicles/playsets. Thinking with the star wars vehicles as far as scale goes. I would love to have some of the ships like the bird of prey, and of course the different Enterprises. That size works so well, and actually I was looking at the older galoob figures and thinking on picking those up.

4 inch figures like the new gi joe with the nice detail and articulation would be awesome!! That seems like a trend going. I look forward to the hellboy 4" line as well as the Marvel line. If they do make a star trek 4" line I would hope they make from all the different areas especially Enterprise.

I believe a company like playmates could really cash in on this if done right.

If the figures were made in the 4 inch style that gi joes are now they could really be something.

Awesome scale that could allow playsets and vehicles like the shuttle craft would just rock.

Plus the detail and the accessories could kick butt.

Has anyone heard how much longer DST will be making these? Another thing causing me to loose interest is the thought of them ending the line and not getting everyone that should be made.

Well, according to Artistrix's post here


I would have to guess the end is in sight. And there seems to be a very real possibility that they will NOT be making all the figures that "should" be made (Quark, Jake, Nog, Kira in her ACTUAL uniform).

Add to that the fact that Playmates will be doing the movie toys--why, I don't know--and I can imagine the DST figures going out with a wimper.

Now I certainly HOPE I'm proven wrong because this is one of my fave toy lines.....and I really want Quark and Kira.....

Star Trek is one of those things for me that I get into in cycles. Right now I don't like it so much but I could in a month. I have been like that about Star Trek since the first films. A big factor right now is the delays in the waves. It's hard to stay interested when they never get released.

I am looking forward to the new film. Hopefully that will spark my interest again.

I had forgotten that I had TNG5 ordered still. Right now I am to the point where I don't care if I got them. I a have been thinking about selling all of my Star Trek figures.

Hold off! New movie hype is just around the corner.

*Sigh* The Nemesis Beverly was originally listed as being released in February 2007...only 2 years late!

Since all you're waiting for it a Troi head swap, I'm sure people could do it on their own.

But you're right, frusterating....
