    After a couple year hiatus, Diamond Select Toys is returning to producing 7-inch Star Trek action figures. This winter, DST plans to release the first in a line of Star Trek Select figures, depicting iconic characters from across the Star Trek universe. Each figure will come in DST's famous Select packaging, and will include a diorama-style display base as well as interchangeable parts to recreate scenes using that diorama.

    The first release depicts Mr. Spock as he appears in the classic episode "Devil in the Dark". This figure includes a cave diorama with a Horta alien - the first Horta toy ever made! Spock himself will have interchangeable legs for standing or crouching poses, and interchangeable hands to hold a phaser or establish a mental link with the Horta. He even comes with an alternate screaming head. The figure will be available in early 2013, and will be followed by James T. Kirk, as well as numerous other important and fan-requested characters from the Star Trek diaspora.

    Re: DST Returns to 7-Inch STAR TREK Figures

    Well, I am glad that more Trek figs are finally on the release schedule, but not happy that it seems they will just be starting all over again with the main characters. Guess it's the pressure from retailers who only want "recognizable characters".

    But what I really want are secondary characters and villains. I already have multiple Kirks and Spocks!

    I'll get this one too (this looks like the nicest Spock head sculpt yet), but I'd still love some army-builders like Cardassian and Dominion soldiers, plus many other characters like 7 of 9 (Borg and humanized versions), Gul Dukat, Vorta Weyoun, Harry Mudd, Cirano Jones and some Tribbles, the Salt Vampire, Mark Lenard as the Romulan Captain and as Spock's father, Yeoman Rand, Nurse Chapel, a Mugato, etc., etc.

    Now if we are just going to be starting all~ over again with the main characters --this time releasing them just ONE at a time-- it'll take 10 YEARS to get to any of those characters that I really want.
