    Well, EMCE at least is banking on something, based on what Paul said earlier. But it seemed like it was Diamond who weren't interested in doing more retro Trek last year. Maybe EMCE are going through someone other than Diamond for their next toys?

    For ST: TOS, they have 3-4 crew and 3-4 aliens left to exploit IMO; opportunity is not a lengthy visitor. A lot of momentum and enthusiasm has been squandered.
    WANTED: NM or boxed Fonzie jalopy; POTA Fortress signal-flasher--top portion; vintage Galahad box; minty Wolfman tights; Black Knight sword; minty POTA stallion reins (brown); Lion Rock (pale) Dracula & Mummy heads; Wayne Foundation blue furniture; Flash Gordon/Ming (10") unbroken holsters; CHiPs gloved arms; POTA T2 tan body; POTA knife-swords; CTVT/vintage Friar Tuck robes.

    I really wanted one or both of the Romulan Commanders. Those were two of my favorite characters. Joanna Linville was gorgeous back in the day, and she would have been oerfect for the line.

    I keep wanting there to be some kind of update here, but I keep being disappointed.

    I feel the same way. Paul's comment on Facebook was several months ago and still no news.

    Mcfarlane can produce all characters from all iterations and Diamond still has the rights as well so can EMCE negotiate a contract specifically with CBS to do retro Trek without Diamond involved?

    I'm sick of Diamond and their small potoatos attitude towards merchandise. They're a lazy company, do things on the cheap and him & haw about costs to do business with anyone who criticizes their choices. Bottom line, if they can't afford to produce what people want, they should give up their stake and walk away.

    My comic shops grew tired of their offerings, delays and quality control and stopped ordering alot of their stuff.

    I really wish Paul and company could reach some agreement with Figures Toy Company and relaunch Classic Trek Retro as it should have been. Given the longevity of many of their other lines from FTC, like Space 1999 and DC, I think classic Trek could have several years of entries, from costume variants to secondary characters. FTC & EMCE ... maybe one day.

    Until than, I get to see retro Trek go for obscene prices on eBay and feel bad for collectors late to the party. Unproduced prototypes continue to haunt the faithful and hopeful. Sometimes it's a punishment to be a fan.

    FTC has had the boot leg trek bodies for sometime, although the quality of them is another story, pretty much buy and restring, and when they came out with the ape items, I was hoping they would do the same for trek, a variety of different color shirts like, gold-blue-red-green-orange-white-purple, etc and black pants and simply call them, Space shirts and pants.

    The mego trek heads would be fine to use, so FTC wouldn't need to get any license rights to make crew member heads.
