    Yeah, that would be awesome.

    Given how much of a commercial opportunist Roddenberry was, I can't imagine his estate would turn down any chance to make a few $ off his likeness. I think it's more a matter of would enough collectors want a figure of Roddenberry, but that's just a guess.

    On a related note, since Carol Serling passed last year, maybe Rod's heirs will be less resistant to the idea of a figure or statue. That would sell, as he was a much more visible part of each TZ than Roddenberry was in Trek. The lack of Serling was the only real downside of the BBP figures from a few years ago.

    ^Serling makes so much more sense as a figure. He was front and center doing intros for TZ and would be recognizable.

    Roddenberry is just a fat old guy in a sweater.

    Star Wars released a George Lucas as X-Wing Pilot *and* a George Lucas in Stormtrooper armor. Apparently Hot Toys made an unlicensed "Director" figure as well.

    I know that Star Wars has a much bigger collector base, but if you did a Gene Roddenberry as Captain April... maybe released as a convention exclusive... I think it would sell.

    ^I’d buy one just so he could make all my Next Generation figures miserable.

    They should also make a Majel Barrett three-pack with her as Number One, Nurse Chapel and Trois mother.

    That sounds good except for having a Next Generation figure in it. I won't be getting any Next Gen figures. I'm sticking to the original series and not expanding. I'd be fine with a two-pack, though. I'd buy a set with Gene and Majel together.

    LonnieFisher, that is a great idea! They could do a special line of "Star Trek Couples" and they could package a Majel character with Gene, 1930s Kirk with Edith Keeler, Sarek and his wife and perhaps Decker and Ilia from The Motion Picture.

    I had the James Brady Gene Roddenberry head, and tweaked it up a bit for a custom Gene Autry.

    I had pics of it on the customs thread a few years back, but sold it off since.

    Wish I could get my hands on another sculpt, and add him to my Trek collection.
