Damn they look really great!  I sorta lost interest in the TNG crew after such long gaps in between the first several wave, then Geordi and Data hit and looked terrible all glossy and short...  I especially love the crew from WoK those are some really good looking figures! Cheesy

Andy, what's the deal I hear about different scales for the TOS figures vs. everything else? Is it a boo-boo of DCD Silver Age vs. Modern Age proportions, or is it barely noticeable?

The TOS stuff was made by Art Asylum before DST took over. It's a slightly smaller scale than the DST stuff, so the TNG and beyond figs, and even the TOS Movie figs are bigger than those originals. I will do some comparison shots when I get a chance.

This doesn't matter hugely, but now that DST is adding to the TOS line with characters like Nurse Chapel and Romulans etc, ppl are gonna scream if they're in the new scale. Here's hoping they get it right!

Very nice Andy,i love Martok he's a ripper so glad you got him.The Armour is incredibly nicely done.Have they made any other Klingons?There were so many that appeared in DS9.

I always loved that episode when they went back and interacted with the original Enterprise crew and the Klingons looked more human.The best line was when Worf was asked why those Klingons looked so different and he just said"We don't talk about that."[or something along those lines]Classic!

So how many figures are we talking in the smaller scale, vs. new? Is it possible they might re-do the originals to get them up to size?

I picked up Spock, McCoy, Uhura and Oriion Slave Girl when they first came out; was never too keen on the Kirk likeness and gave up, but the upcoming Chapel one is intriguing,  and the TNG figures look great in your display.

Well they did all the main characters of TOS so Spock, McCoy, Scotty, Sulu, Chekov, Uhura and Kirk, plus "Mirror, Mirror" figures. Really as long as they do Chapel right it's no drama. Those figures were amazing in terms of the detail and likenesses, apart from Kirk. I just don't think The Shat's youthful visage translates well to sculpting.

Meh. I don't think someone's trying hard enough. Someone should be able to get it. I think they went with too soft a look for Kirk. I think the Mego one was closer.

Having said that, everyone else has been spot-on.

I've got a number of the originals still, but I've been buying the new EMCE repros. They're really well done!

Yeah, my LCS gets them in but I just decided not to go down that road. Have to draw lines somewhere. They do look good tho.

Understood. There's really TOO much stuff out there. Gotta be selective, and even then I'm still in too many lines.
