Playmates marks its much-anticipated return, after a 12-year absence, as the global licensee across action figures, vehicles, ships and role play for all ViacomCBS Star Trek Properties.
The Original Series USS Enterprise replica ship in 18-inch scale with lights and sounds is among the toys featured in the summer 2022 launch of Playmates Toys’ new collection of Star Trek action figures and accessories. The first figures and toys from Playmates will be available this summer in a collection of retro figures from the Star Trek TV and movie franchises, and from the latest series on Paramount+.
The five-inch, 1:14 scale figures will each have 14 points of articulation and be packaged in either 1990s nostalgic packaging or newly designed Star Trek Universe blister cards, depending on the character.
The first wave in the Star Trek Universe collection, available online in July 2022 and in stores in the fall, will include Lt. Commander Data, Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Commander William Riker, Admiral James T. Kirk, Mr. Spock, Khan Noonien Singh, Science Officer Michael Burnham and Commander Saru. The collection will also include the Original Series Enterprise replica ship and the Original Series Phaser.
Playmates will continually expand the Star Trek collector line with fan-requested favorites based on the dozens of Starfleet heroes and aliens featured in the brand’s 13 motion pictures and 11 live-action series – from the original 1960s show through the current hit shows on Paramount+, including the premiere of “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.”
Additional Star Trek Universe collection figures and accessories scheduled for release in early 2023 will be announced later this year.
