Playmates Reveals New Star Trek Toys for 2022

After a 12 year absence, Playmates is back making Star Trek toys! Today, they’ve unveiled the first line of products set to launch this Summer!

Around Summer of last year, Trek fans/collectors were surprised by the announcement that Playmates Toys would once again be producing figures from the iconic science fiction franchise. Today, they’ve revealed their initial 2022 line-up consisting of figures from the various series, movies, as well as ships and a replica phaser.

Even better, the figures based on the older shows/movies will be coming in some classic 90s packaging that older collectors will swoon over:

The first figures and toys from Playmates will be available to fans this summer in a collection of retro figures from the most popular Star Trek TV and movie franchises, and from the latest hit series on Paramount+. The five-inch, 1:14 scale figures will feature the extraordinary attention to detail Playmates is known for, each with 14 points of articulation and packaged in either 1990s nostalgic packaging or newly designed Star Trek Universe blister cards, depending on the character.

The first wave in the Star Trek Universe collection, available online in July 2022 and in stores in the fall, will include the following 10 characters and items:

Lt. Commander Data, Star Trek: The Next Generation, nostalgic packaging

Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Star Trek: The Next Generation, nostalgic packaging

Commander William Riker, Star Trek: The Next Generation, nostalgic packaging

Admiral James T. Kirk, Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, nostalgic packaging

Playmates has been highly regarded among Star Trek collectors for the company’s attention to brand detail, authentic portrait sculpting, and innovations it brought to the category. The toy company will continually expand the Star Trek collector line with fan-requested favorites based on the dozens of Starfleet heroes and infamous aliens featured in the brand’s 13 motion pictures and 11 live-action series – from the original 1960s show through the current hit shows on Paramount+, including the premiere of “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.”

There’s more Star Trek toys on the way slated to hit early next year. Playmates promises announcements coming for those later this year.
