Last week we showed you packaged pics of Star Trek Select Spock
. Now it’s Captain James T. Kirk’s turn. He comes with a part of the Engineering area of the U.S.S. Enterprise, and can be displayed in combat with Khan from the classic episode, “Space Seed.” Khan himself is part of the display base and not removable. Kirk comes with a second set of hands, a broken phaser and a control rod, as well as a second set of legs. He beams down in June or you can preorder him here
was the first to post these pics of Hasbro’s Kreo line of Star Trek toys. The new series will mostly focus on the new J.J. Abrams film, but a few familiar faces from other Star Trek films and television programs will make appearances. The biggest set features the U.S.S. Enterprise, with Kirk, Spock, McCoy and two unnamed bad guys. The 18-inch long ship requires 3 AAA batteries to power the glowing warp engines. All 432 building pieces and 5 Kreon figures will run you $69.99. The Klingons step into the KRE-O spotlight with the Bird of Prey building set. The ship only has room for one pilot, so you’ll have to choose whether Kirk, Uhura or the two Klingons will get to drive. The cockpit lights up and each wing has a firing projectile. That will run you $29.99 when it releases in May. Spock’s Volcano Mission Set features our favorite Vulcan in his special lava suit, Sulu, a shuttle with a light-up cockpit, a zip line, and an erupting rock. $19.99 will take you on this away mission. Scotty stars in the Transporter Trouble Building Set. The chamber illuminates while Scotty battles a bat’leth wielding Klingon. That will cost you $14.99. For $7.99, you can build your own fleet of micro-starships. The assortment includes the U.S.S. ENTERPRISE, KLINGON D7 BATTLE CRUISER, U.S.S. KELVIN and the JELLYFISH. Each building set comes with a LIGHTTECH illuminated display stand and approximately 34-42 pieces. Also for $7.99, you can create your own showdown between Kirk and a bad guy with a really big gun that fires small projectiles in an illuminated air lock. Finally, you will be able to purchase individual Kreon figures. Series one will feature GORN, CAPTAIN NERO, KEENSER, GRASIA, KINGON and LIEUTENANT SPRONG. In the fall we’ll be able to pick up 12 more characters including CAPTAIN KIRK, SPOCK, BORG DRONE and GENERAL CHANG. Look for most of these toys to hit retail in May.
