    I still have the WRATH OF KHAN set, but one of my favs was the Gorn figure, and it turned into stankin' goo. Tossed it out. :(

    The 12" Piece of the Action figures are very rare.. they produced 1,000 for the European market and re-used the original 12" Spock body, which was giving the Vulcan salute. Obviously this didn't really fit with the Piece of the Action themed figure, and collectors weren't too pleased.

    NewForce then commissioned their exclusive for the US market, also limited to 1000. But they had Spock's hand changed to standard.

    NewForce also distributed the figures so that both Kirk and Spock has matching collector numbers.. you recall how Playmates used to give each a serialized number..
