Toys & Packaging From J.J.'s TREK Hint At What We'll Be Seeing In Stores (And On Screen) Soon...

Merrick here...
Images of toys from Abrams' STAR TREK movie are making their way across the Internet, providing our first look at packaging & better looks at several figures & designs from the film.
You can find many more toy images (figures and gadgets both in and out of packages) via THIS flickr photostream. Many (if not all) of the pics seem to originate from THIS Japanese website, which appears to be taking pre-orders. Most/all of these should be hitting stores in late April. "Original Spock"? Sounds like a soft drink...

    This year's Superman Returns

    by Muki

    Star Trek will be this year's Superman Returns. Young models playing classic characters, check. A over-rated director with geek cred, check. A massive budget spent almost exclusively on CGI, check. Fuck all story, check.

    Who the fuck cares when AVATAR is fucking our eyeballs in 2009?

    by Motoko Kusanagi

  • Feb. 10, 2009, 11:13 a.m. CST

    is AVATAR still going 3-D?

    by rben

    reason i ask is i may not be able to watch it. I had lasix done years ago and a while back i tried to watch Meet the Robinsons in 3-D and literally couldn't see the images. Which makes me wonder if the same thing would happen to me if i tried to watch Coraline. Or has the 3-D been refined better since then. Any lasic peoples out there having the same problem i am?

  • Feb. 10, 2009, 11:25 a.m. CST

    Here's a question...

    by Hairy Nutsack

    **SPOILER**<p> Okay, so we know the new look and alterations are a result of an alternate timeline thingy because the Romulan goes back and changes something, but had this not happened then everything would have looked O.S. right?<p> This movie is a likely hit, but can anyone see them devolving the sets etc. into the O.S. look in the sequel after they've resolved the crisis in this movie? Of course they won't, so this is a reboot whether they admit it or not. Bye-bye continuity.

  • Feb. 10, 2009, 11:45 a.m. CST

    Holy crap! The new Trek film will have the Enterprise in it?

    Look at the packaging for "stackability" on the shelves

    by EriamJH

    Spock's packaging on its side looks like a roman numeral 5 -- great for those marketeers who want to relate him with "Star Trek V - The Final Frontier"

    Avatar will be screene in 2D as well. Cameron is framing all his shots as 2D, if they work as 3D it's an added bonus.

    That new Enterprise is shit

    by kwisatzhaderach

    Why did they put the engines so close to each other? I mean, this is basic, common sense stuff. Morons.

    The original 60s TV show Enterprise...

    by ccchhhrrriiisssm

    ...was a tiny, hippie-inspired model that looked like it was made out of wood. At least this thing looks plausible. <p>I do, however, hope that this ship somehow evolves into the movie Enterprise. That ship...was cool.</p> I am looking forward to this film.

  • Feb. 10, 2009, 5:45 p.m. CST

    Will there be an obese 70 yr old Kirk doll?

    by ccchhhrrriiisssm

    It would make all of those friendless Trekkie fanatics happy. <p>This film looks great! My only concern: The ship's fuselage is too short...and the engine constructs are too far back. Other than that...I love it! </p> The Enterprise in this film is sooooooo much better than that fugly ship from that old 1960s TV show.

  • Feb. 10, 2009, 5:53 p.m. CST

    The old Enterprise is shit...

    by ccchhhrrriiisssm

    What was it? PVC pipe or a block of wood held up by string? Even the interior looked like shit. It looked like plywood with LiteBrites for computers. <p>Can't wait to see someone who actually spent money on the Star Trek concept!!! </p>

    in which Patrick Stewart will make all the womens' clothes fall off, and they'll immediately try to cover up despite the fact that he already saw everything?

    I'm excited

    by Davidia

    I was never a fan of Trek, except for dabbling into some TNG. But Star Trek isn't relevant anymore to this fast-changing world, this looks like just the update the series needs to stay fresh. Oh, and tell me MI:3 wasn't awesome, go ahead, I dare you.

    re: Hairy Nutsack

    by EverythingEverywhereStinks

    Hey Hairy Nutsack, you're not seriously still operating under the belief that this film was ever anything other than a start-from-square-one reimagining of the Star Trek concept, are you? The only people who still think this is a continuation of the original Star Trek are the sad people who want to believe it because they read a mediocre comic book that was promoted as a tie-in. Lame.
