    Spock and the Andorian have arrived

    I just got my shipment of Spock and the Andorian at 4pm on Jan. 2nd
    and yesterday all the Starlog pre-orders were mailed out.

    When I opened the first case, I was stunned. Spock has silver rank
    stripes. I contacted my guy in China and gave him an earfull.

    These figures have been in stores for about a week, yet no one
    has said anything. Am I being too anal about this? Is this just
    a cool variant?

    Glad to hear they are in and out. Hope all is well with you.

    I think the silver stripes are a cool variant assuming subsequent shipments are correct.

    A change to spock is great because he is so readily available vintage. Now if the poor Andorian was wrong....Ouch.

    The Andorian is perfect

    I was worried that the color on the Andorian would be too bright blue or
    too gray, but everyone I have looked at compares well to the original.

    Congratulations, Paul! Another victory (in spite of the silver piping issue...) and a great way to start the year!

    Silver stripes are Ok, if Gold ones do come out later. I will have to get both, of course. No Romulans with silver helmets, please.

    A quick photo comparison:


    That's my own childhood Spock on the left, first found under the tree in 1978. He's packing a repaired original tricorder and an old-school Dr. Mego phaser.

    I gotta say, EMCE nailed the sculpt and paint on the head. My fig is darker complected but that could just be twenty-nine years of grime. The color of the shirt, however, is distinctly lighter than the Mego version; the difference is more apparent in person than in this pic. I noticed the same thing with EMCE Kirk's canary-yellow jersey-- if this trend continues, and they get to do Scotty, he'll be wearing hot pink.

    More seriously, an issue I hope gets addressed on future releases is the hands. On my new Kirk, Spock and Klingon, the thumb is too close to the palm for a phaser to be held upright. Not a problem for the Andorian, of course! Wow, those Mego gloves really send me back...

    Okay, that's enough for a first post. Doc, I may nitpick but you and your collaborators have already achieved the impossible. Improving on that would merely be a bonus.

    Is it just me or are the aliens a little bit taller then they were originally? and so far the only thing (and this is being a bit nit picky) that bothers me a bit is the insignia on the crew members its way bigger then the originals and looks more like a letter A then the curved and smaller original insignias.
