Definitely getting the 6-inch Chekov and McCoy in Enterprise uniforms. I'll just need Uhura for the crew then.

 

I hope Pike comes with wave 2 in Canada. I don't why he wasn't released with wave 1 here. Especially with him being played by a Canadian actor.

It might be cool to have them as collectors items, as it stands right now though all of my 'hobby' money goes into keeping STARTREKFANS.NET online. I think if I were to start collecting Star Trek toys though I'd start with the ones I had as a kid (and wish I still had):

Bet you wish you had that pile of unopened Classic Trek toys now.

 

Among other things, I now have a 16 year old daughter with constant interest in our excess money supply so I am not going to make plans to get any of the second wave, that way I won't be so disappointed if I cannot afford them.

my question is, where are they? These toys were supposed to be released in July and I haven't seen any new toys. I even looked on the Toys R Us website and I don't see anything. I guess they haven't released them yet, but I look every time I'm at the store

IIRC the first wave wasn't exactly 'on time' either.

I had the Mego superhero action figures when I was a kid!....thing is, at some point, the bands that kept the arms together snapped....and boy, did that wreck my playtime!!Argh. I don't even have the 'remains' now...along with my G.I.Joes. Dang it!Now, those were well-built figures, brother! (I had three, one with 'hair' and beard...)
