Star Trek Returns To Playmates For New Line Of Figures

Star Trek figures are coming back to stores and from a familiar place. Playmates, after a while of teasing us, revealed their new line of figures and toys based on the mega-popular Sci-Fi franchise today. It has been twelve years since we last saw Playmates Star Trek toys, and they are hitting the ground running starting this July. Figures releasing then will be from Star Trek: The Next Generation,  Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, and Star Trek: Discovery with figures from the past in retro-style cardbacks to mimic the Playmates figures of old, while Discovery figures will be on a new cardback. They will be in the 5-inch scale. There will also be a new 21-inch Enterprise and Phaser from the original series. You can see the figures and such and get more info below.
