It is possible that this is more of a sign of the economic times we are in than anything to do with the movie.

The playmates Enterprise isn't too bad.

Quote: "Playmates VP of marketing Paul Fish tells TrekMovie that they hope to pick up the license for the 2012 Star Trek sequel, and they expect that film to be even more "toy friendly." "

What the heck does that mean?

But still lacks the detail and quality of the DST models.

IMHO they should have gone with NECA doing the figures and DST making the ships.

Playmates just looks cheap.

Take a look at their Terminator line, and compare it to NECA's Terminator line.

There are parsecs between both.

They did a very nice job with the Tricorder, Phaser & Communicator all of which are accurately detailed.  They do have the usual "toy" scale issue though.

We would have three figures, a ship, and a prop maybe if we were lucky.

The toys could be better. They are not bad but I was going to buy some in the store and decided against it. They were expensive for the quality of toy it was. The sculpting can be better. Please do not take this comment a wrong but this is another way Star Trek can learn from Star Wars. They have a very successful toy and video game franchise in comparison.

Cant touch Ertl for their quality line of Trek models. You just had to be good at painting them and putting them together. ¿Nowadays you can only find them on Ebay for like $70 a pop.

Flop.

No more waves of toys based on JJ's crap.
At least not based on this movie. :D

Edit: The title should read Playmates' JJ-Trek toy line = FLOP.

Looks like people are finally getting the message, I've been saying for months how much those stupid toys suck,

pretty soon people will realize how much the movie sucked, won't pay to see the sequel and that'll be the end of JJ Abrams' idiot-fest..yippy ! :D

You said people wouldn't pay to see the new movie when it came out and that after a good opening weekend it would disappear.

You were wrong about that. So how can I believe you when you're so wrong all of the time?

Look, SaturnsRings, life is full of disappointments...Clearly that Fathead Rat JJ Abrams took the fans for a nut-ride in his nutty movie, even I was on the ride for a minute, but then I said "This isen't right, Star Trek is not suppose to be like THIS." So alot of other people are seeing the light...
If the demise of Abrams' goof-fest begins with the toys then the movie, so be it..
Maybe this will send a message to those stuck up loons at Paramount. ¿;)

Maybe it has more to do with Star Trek never being a kids toy type of franchise?

Or the fact that the economy is bad?

Have you ever considered these things or are you just to ignorant to figure it out?

Look DJ6200 we know you don't like the new movie and Abrams so do you have to keep repeating yourself about it over and over and over and over again? You don't have to post in this forum.

NO, Buster, Star Trek always had good toys for kids, the Megoes in the 1970's Kids didn't have a problem buying them, now they're going for $100.00 each..
Playments were booming in the 1990's with toys from TNG, TOS, DS9 and Voyager with playsets 4 inch figures , 7 inch, 9 inch and 12 inch..DUH ? somebody must had been buying those, or are YOU to ignorant to see that the new toys just suck.
