I've seen Archer and TPol being sold in both their original uniforms from ENT, as well as in the astronaut/away team uniforms. ?Wish they'd have one of Trip, tho. ?He was probably as important of an action figure as Archer and T'Pol. ?I do see Reed and Mayweather, but no Hoshi, Trip, or Phlox from what I can tell... ?Needless to say, there are plenty of DS9 action figures like Sisko, Worf (which can probably double as a TNG character), Dax, and Kira. ?Wish they'd have Quark and Odo as action figures, tho...

Actually, Diamond Select DID make an Odo figure. Still no Quark though. Boo!

...or a Ferengi in general.  That species definitely did deserve to have a figure made for it.

Does anyone out there want a Jake Sisko action figure? How about Wesley Crusher? Or Neelix?

I'd buy a Jake Sisko figure, if they made one. He wasn't nearly as annoying as Wesley. There is a Wesley figure, but I didn't buy it.

Neelix? Hmmm...I guess. But first they'd have to release the other Voyager characters. Apparantly they made a Seven Of Nine (which looks really good) but they cancelled it along with the Sisko/Dukat and Borg Waves. Hopefully, when the economy gets better, or when people show more interest with preorder sales, then we'll get them all, including the rest of DS9 (Quark, Garak, Jake) and all of Voyager crew.

Fact of the matter is when ArtAsylum was doing the figures the quality was better, but I guess they sold the rights to Diamond at a hefty price now Diamond gives us less quality the TNG figures hardly move, and some of the remakes of TOS figures has horrible paint jobs, like Spock and Uhura.

Well, Amazon seems to have a Diamond Action Figure of Seven of Nine up for Pre-order, I know that she was plumb hawt in Voyager, and may be worth the consideration.

AA/DS is the same company just a different name. I personally haven't experienced a drop in quality in their products.

Well look at the ENTERPRISE, Borg Assimilation Line and the detailed heads of the NEMESIS series, and compare them to DS9 figures or even TOS figures...

There has been a huge drop in quality. While the ENTERPRISE figures could compete with NECA and McFarlane toys, the new ones simply lack the quality.

No drop in quality when it comes to ships... their latest release (the Enterprises D - regular and AGT variant) come close to studio model quality.

They seem to be focusing more on the ships and props now & less on the figures and that could explain a few things.

I am really very pleased with their ships. With the announced Enterprise-B, the Excelsior and the Klingon Bird of Prey (with moveable wings), they have three big classics in waiting position, which will surely by hits.

Btw. the Enterprise-D is selling... and how it is. The AGT exclusive is sold out and the first load of regular Enterprises is almost, too.

I wish DST would focus on ships only and NECA would get the figure liscence.

I almost bought the ENT-D(regular) at the Vegas convention, I honestly thought they did a better job with the ENT-E.

I am waiting for the ENT-B. They need to do the ENT-C or at the very least an Ambassador class ship.


There is a new Japenese company making Johnny Lightning scale ships now and they are amazing:

Yep, got that, and I got the ST2009 "Iconic Vehicle" as they call it, but the ST2009 NCC-1701 is made by Playmates, which I'm unaware if their quality would stand up to that of Diamond.

It doesn't, although there will be several model kits available soon.

I wonder why they're afraid to produce figures and ships from DS9 and Voyager, we got some of the DS9 figs except for Quark and Nog, but I'd like to see a Janeway and Neelix figures.
