Arex would be cool, however, I think it would be hard for them to make it so it doesn't look cartoon-ish. I know he was in the animated series, but it would be better imo, if they tried to make him look as he would had he been in TOS. Just look cooler, me thinks.

I just found an Art Asylum VOY: "Timeless" Captain Laforge figure where he has a red shirt and 4 pips at a local comic shop for $3!  After reading IFM, I had to get it being so cheap.  I've never heard of this figure before.

Any it sad that there is no major line out, Art Aslyum is cool but I like to hunt stores and those figures can b hard to find. The last movie line of toys killed any chance to have a regular production I think.

Those ST09 figs were a big failure to me.  I keep seeing them at Toys R Us for cheap but they are so bad I can't waste my money on them.


I also enjoy the thrill of the hunt.  I've made good finds looking in comic shops as I travel around.

I bought nothing Trek 09 in toys or figures. The Phaser and Tricorders were to plastic  The communicator should be a Cellphone option.


They allowed a company the rights to produce a TOS comm phone a few years back but the company never got it out for sale. Plus it had a recording of Worf. I wrote the company and suggested they use Worf for a Blackberry that looked like a TNG tricorder and not on the TOS phone. they never responded and I still don't have a Trek phone.


although I do use a flip style phone that is a dinosaur compared to what is now out there.

The art asylum prop replicas are quite good.  I wish they'd make a TOS phaser rifle.

As far as I know, this would be the only VOY figure Ary Asylum made.  Of course, all they had to do was change the color of the collar.

^ I was on topic!


Oh yeah -- Crystalline entity. That'd be cool. You could build it up like a 3D jigsaw.


There is a Garak action figure out there but it's Playmates i think, and not very good. (as in, not very well sculpted.)

Ah, Kuka ---uuhhh Okatu...


Yeahp, they can just go and sell us a little puddle of goo. Great. Only $84.99, folks!


They could bring out a DS9-Mirror Set. That could be kewl.
Or the Ferengi from DS9, Quark, Rom, Nog, Zek, Brunt etc... (Oooh, Question: Is ther a Quark action fig from Art Asylum already? I know Playmates brought one out in the 90s, but what about a more modern toy?)
Art Asylum should do the toys for the next film. Playmates just failed. Epicly. (I thought Wave 2 of 2009-the wave that never was- was actually pretty cool...
http://trekmovie.com/2009/06/13/exclusive-preview-of-playmates-2nd-wave-of-star-trek-movie-figures-toys/ . Unfortunately, Wave 1 sucked too much tribbleshee for them to bring out another wave.)

Mirror figs could be cool and easily done.  They don't even have to resculpt the heads, which is the hardest part.  Well, I guess the figs would need a scowl.  The Regent would have to be the first they do.

I have the ST09 communicator.  It is definitely worth having, but my Art Asylum TOS communicator is far better and more interesting.
