The Voyage Continues With Star Trek Legacy Minimates!
May 10, 2013

Anticipation for the newest Star Trek film invariably leads us to think about the legacy it is a part of. All of the Star Trek films, TV series and other stories that have ever been told in the Star Trek universe have led us to this moment. So what better way to celebrate the legacy of Star Trek than with a toy line that touches on all eras of the franchise?

In June, the first series of Star Trek Legacy Minimates will hit stores, and no matter what era of Trek you hold most dear, there is a two-pack of 2-inch mini-figures just for you. Two separate assortments will be available, each with different uniforms, characters and species, not to mention a shipload of weapons and accessories.


At comic shops and specialty stores, both movies and TV shows will get figures:

– Admiral Kirk & Khan (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan)
– Captain Picard & Borg Queen (Star Trek: First Contact)
– Captain Sisko & Jem Hadar (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine)
– Captain Archer & Xindi (Star Trek: Enterprise)

Then, at Toys “R” Us and toysrus.com, the scope expands with four exclusive pairings:

– Captain Kirk & Kahn (gold shirt) (Star Trek: The Original Series)
– Captain Picard (captain’s jacket) & Hugh (Star Trek: The Next Generation)
– Captain Sisko (vest) & Gul Dukat (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine)
– Captain Janeway & Seven of Nine (Star Trek: Voyager)

Finally, comic shops and specialty stores will get the long-awaited Minimates vehicle of the U.S.S. Enterprise, with opening bridge dome and engineering section, a removable command chair with display base, and an adjustable display stand. The standard edition will come with Captain Kirk, a communicator and a phaser rifle, while a “Trouble with Tribbles” edition (with green-shirt Kirk and tribbles) and a “Mirror, Mirror” variant (the I.S.S. Enterprise with Mirror Kirk) will be available exclusively at Entertainment Earth and Action Figure Xpress, respectively.

Six TV series! Two movies! Sixteen Minimates! And three Enterprises! The return of Star Trek Minimates starts in June!

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
