    Plaid Stallions The First Star Trek Action Figure



    Something that didn't get mentioned in the recent "The Toys That Made us" was the first Star Trek action figure wasn't of Kirk or Spock it was of Janice Rand?



    This Japanese toy line is something I've seen in small black and white catalogs since I was a teenager but at the recent MegoMeet celebration I got to hold one and stupidly not buy this? What is up with me?




    In 1966, A Japanese toy company decided to make a series of fashion dolls based on the ladies from various genre shows like Tara King from the Avengers, Agent 99 from Get Smart and Janice Rand from Star Trek.


    None of this was licensed and let's face it, it ain't a stunning likeness but the little Star Fleet uniform (complete with accurate insignia) is adorable.


    My thanks to Corey for letting me share this, it kind of haunts me I didn't grab this....

    Wow, I wish I had seen this at the Meet! It's so early it's based on publicity photos before the show even started to air!

    Okay, this is just absolutely phenomenal!!! There's surprisingly so much they got right with the details. Toy history like this is just mind-blowing. Thank you for sharing this with everyone.

    The only time in history Miss Hathaway was considered glamourous.

    Whoa, I have never heard of these before. I'm guessing that they were made in Japan for the US market (as I'm pretty certain that some of those TV shows never aired in Japan in the 60's). It's funny, at the Meet I was talking with Corey about the 60's Japanese Lost in Space dolls made by Marusan but I didn't even notice this on his table. How much was he selling it for?

    These are interesting, were they ever released in the U.S.? the Beverly Owen Marilyn Munster is my favorite, plus I thought she was much prettier than Pat Priest.
