So, is DST done with Star Trek figures all together? I haven't heard or seen anything since the last few figures were canceled (Christopher Lloyd Kruge).

Also, can anyone give me a clue as to why DST doesn't have the license for the Abrams Star Trek? The new Kre-O sets seem to be kinda neat, but I think Hasbro really dropped the ball on this one. Guess they just didn't want to lose their shirt after what happened with the Playmates line from '09? But, they could have done even a minimal line, and it could have been absolutely incredible. What gives?

I believe even though they didn't do anything for Into Darkness that Playmates is still holding on to the ST action figure license. Hasbrro was able to get a piece of the license by going the construction toy route.

Okay, I guess that would make sense. God, I wish DST could release the new Enterprise at the very least! Maybe one of these days...
