Diamond Select Toys question...

I'm new to this forum and this is my first post, so I apologize in advance if this topic has already been discussed.

Last month I started collecting the Diamond Select line of Star Trek action figures. I recently visited their website and was disappointed to discover that their list of figures is inaccurate. I'd seen a Shinzon, Viceroy, and several other figures from the various series in my local collectors stores that are NOT listed on their website.

I scoured the internet for a COMPLETE list of action figures that they produced but I cannot find any. Does anyone know if such a website exists? If not, is there anyone out there with the will and the patience to type out a COMPLETE list in this thread? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

One more question. Has Diamond Select discontinued their Star Trek line? I haven't heard of anything coming out for the rest of the year or 2010. It would be a shame not to see a Guinan, Quark, Kira in Bajoran attire, or any of the Voyager characters for that matter. They make an Ogawa figure but no Dukat or Janeway? Doesn't make sense. I hope they sincerely are planning to continue. We need Borg Queen and J'emHadar among others.

The NEMESIS wave was made in 2002 by ArtAsylum.
In 2003 DST bought AA and integrated it into its company.

As far as I know there is no official list of DST products, but some fans have made a really detailed one:

Check out TrekToy.com for further information.

For now it seems they are milking TOS to death, with the 4777463th variant of Kirk (going to the toilett Kirk) and the 2233th variant of Spock  :eyesroll:

So far, there are no plans for a VOYAGER line, or to continue the DS9 line.

You can also check their official blog at ArtAsylum.com for new updates.

Thanks Captain_Storma! Those links were VERY helpful! And the Q&A with Art Asylum was very informative. Shame there's no plans to continue with DS9 or Voyager but hopefully we'll see something in the near future.

You're welcome.

Yeah, a real shame... I am getting tired of their Kirk and Spock re-re-re-re-re-re-releases ;)

They even cancelled the Sisko in captain's chair set, just to release just another Kirk in chair set.  :eyesroll:

TOS is way overdone these days.

Yeah... I preordered that Borg Wave, the Sisko/Dukat double and the Sisko in captain's chair (since I love the Defiant)...

And what do we get:

- Sleeping Kirk
- Washing Kirk
- Kirk breezing
- Kirk crying
- Kirk vomiting
- Kirk *post whatever you want here*

The E-D is breathtaking... at least the ship sector seems to work.
With the Enterprise-B and the Excelsior coming in 2010 and the Klingon Bird of Prey later the same year, they really have a nice lineup...

So were the Sisko/Dukat and Seven Of Nine action figures cancelled as well?

I don't think Diamond knows what they're doing, I think when ArtAsylum was doing the figures the quality was better,
BUT I do like the Enterprise-D, that thing is big and the detail is spot on.
They're also coming out with McCoy in his short sleeve shirt and Yeoman Janice Rand !  :D

I don't know about everyone else, but the prices here for the action figures are daylight robbery! I've actually stopped getting them, unless they're ones I rally like to get, ie Captain's Chair Sisko... :sarcastic:

Agreed with everyone.  Diamond Select has made some really cool ships but they have killed it with the TOS figures.  I bet the president of DS is a lifelong TOS fan who can't stand DS9 or Voyager.

TOS is awesome, but come on DS.  Atleast they did a great job with the Enterprise D but they need to make a Defiant or even a Voyager.  

And yes the figures are way way over priced.

In my opinion, they need to finish the DS9 line before they do anymore pointless TOS figures. We need Kira in Bajoran uniform, Quark, Garak, Jake & Dukat. They could end it there and I'd be satisfied. I'm just glad they finished all the major TNG characters although Guinan would've been nice.

I think we can forget about seeing any VOY figures.

Yep... won't see the light of day.  :(

Pick a Kirk reissue instead...  :eyesroll:

And yes... their ship department knows how to do the job well. The Enterprise-D looks terrific.
With the Excelsior and the Enterprise-B preparing for launch we will get two other beauties soon.
