It looks like Kirk and Spock can be preordered, but I don’t see anything about Uhura. Anyone have a link?

That's "See the new Star Trek 50th Anniversary Barbie action figures".*
  • “Mister Spock. How…is your…relationship…status?”
    “Captain, I feel that Bobby is the cutest boy on our starship. I long to duel over him during Pon Farr.”

Dark Helmet: Did you see anything?

Colonel Sanders: No, sir! I didn’t see you playing with your dolls again!

But how can a Barbie be a Barbie if it’s not Barbie? What an epistemological nightmare!


#7

It says ‘Barbie’ right on the box… in teeny tiny letters, next to the words “Black Label.”


#8

For once the plastic hair feels entirely appropriate, eh?


#9

If marketing has taught me anything, it’s that limited edition anniversary black label collections released to boost profits and recognition of a flagging brand are always worth a 500% mark-up!


#10

eh, Spock looks right, Kirk is about right if we’re talking first-season Shatner, but Uhura was never a waif. Gotta thicken her on up, Mattel.


#11

I don’t know; every time I look I see Quinto more than I see Nimoy.


#12

Man, just seeing Kirk holding that phaser reminded me why the Exploration set was one of my favorite toys growing up:

Maybe I need to replace mine right about now…


#13

I don’t need these. I don’t have the space for these. But I really want them anyway. :crying_cat_face:

At least they got her face correct.

Plays well with the Barbie & Ken Star Trek Giftset (30th Anniversary Collector Edition) from 1996? Meh, those dolls are lame, as were the 2009 Star Trek movie figures; the young Spock is barely adequate, http://www.amazon.com/Barbie-Doll-Star-Treks-Spock/dp/B00142TSCY/ but the others are far too generic. You need to start swapping heads in order to build your dream team of bridge officers. This etsy creation is a good start, though it relies heavily on the vintage Barbie aesthetic: https://www.etsy.com/listing/58361812/to-boldly-go-barbie-8-x-12-fine-art

These OOAK dolls go a bit further, and I think are on the right track: https://www.flickr.com/search/?user_id=51795427%40N02&view_all=1&text=star%20trek

And I’m surprised by the lack of TNG Barbie figures; after a brief search, I can only find one worthy of mention, but this Seven of Nine Voyager doll is a real standout: http://dollduels.com/view.php?id=2092

I had to Google to learn why I have never seen a set of Spaceballs action figures: “George Lucas gave Mel Brooks his blessing to make Spaceballs on the condition that no action figures be made, as they could be confused with actual Star Wars toys.” https://www.reddit.com/r/todayilearned/comments/2p031z/til_george_lucas_gave_mel_brooks_his_blessing_to/

Or at least give her knees a 3rd dimension…
