Thread: Top Star Trek wants?

  1. #1

    Top Star Trek wants?

    I have been so pleasantly surprised so far with the new mego Star Trek figures. I loved all the TOS repos and the new characters like Picard, Data and Saru look great as well. Star Trek TOS holds a special place in my heart and its the reason I got into Megos and the Star Trek shows and movies as well.

    I am praying ReMego continues to do a great job and hopefully will have more figures out in the future! I know most people wish they gave us all the TOS characters first but I do like that we are getting diversity. What is everyone's top 5 wants?

    Mine:
    1. Decker
    2. Ilia
    3. Worf
    4. Nurse Chapel
    5. Marla McGivers

    BONUS: It would be a real surprise if they did the modern movie characters... hell we are getting Discovery why not?

    I really hope they get back to TOS and making more characters (not more Kirk/Spock variants). My top wants have to include McCoy and Scotty, plus the Klingon. My top two after those would be Nurse Chapel (I was so excited by the Emce prototype from several years ago) and a security guard (Leslie would be extra-awesome).

    We could have bought up all the Richie and Al figures from Target, if they released the Scotty, who would have cleared shelves faster than a Tribble propagates!!

    I keep hoping Mego gets back to TOS soon. So many great characters yet to be made.

    Agreed. Get back to TOS. Finish out the crew, get started on the aliens, and get some playsets out, including the bridge.

    STD can’t even beat out reruns of Family Feud right now. No, I’m not making that up. It’s got a 0.2 share of the 18-49 demographic. It’s on free TV on one of the biggest networks in the world during a pandemic when people are locked in and starving for new content, and it’s losing out to sitcom reruns like Mom and Little Sheldon.

    I honestly think remastered TOS could pull better ratings for CBS than STD. There’s a reason almost no other licenser has touched this brand. Mego’s gonna take a bath on this one.

    I'd like to see Mego put out a true to 8" Mego size plastic complete Classic Bridge

    It's not as tough as you would think.

    Most of the bridge sections are almost identical --- just sell 1 bare bones section and then sell upgrade baggies for each section.

    People can buy just a few sections for different display vignettes

    Oh, and don't forget the Captains chair and Helm

    I like that it is actually connected with TOS. I think the show is pretty good tbh. I really like Michael, Saru and Cpt Philippa.

    The problem I have with STD is I just donít think itís popular enough for Mego to come out ahead on. My fear is this stuff is going to rot on shelves the way the sitcom stuff did. My local Target still has some of that wave 1 junk hanging on the pegs to this very day. For some reason they just wonít discount it. It just continues to sit there, clogging up the pegs.

    Maybe but Im hoping that people buy them because of how well done they are. I hope Michael is nice but Saru looks absolutely amazing. It blows me away how detailed he is.

    Vina as green Orion slave girl. That's the only TOS figure I'm asking for.
