Brand new Funko Pops feature classic Star Trek characters.

Star Trek fans are going to want to head to Target for these exclusive Funko Pop collectibles. A new line of Star Trek figures is being released under the Funko Pop brand specifically to Target retailers according to various outlets. The figures go on sale on July 25.

The new line will feature classic Trek characters that focused on a more villainous line. The mirror versions of James Kirk, Spock, Sulu, and Uhura are all featured, as well as the infamous Gorn that Kirk fought. Not only that, but the Original Series version of Khan Noonien Singh (with dyed skin) is also a part of the set. For those looking for less villainous versions of Kirk and Spock, you’ll have those as well.

Star Trek merchandising is finally picking up after over a decade

Even before Star Trek: Discovery aired, the Star Trek brand really didn’t have any new merchandise coming out. Art Asylum released some figures for Star Trek: Enterprise but the wildly popular Playmates action figures that had been produced for over a decade had come to an end, only to get a second-life as slightly altered figures for the 2009 Star Trek film. There weren’t any more produced after that until the 2021 announcement that Playmates was getting back into the Trek game.

With that announcement, there seems to be a rush of interesting memorabilia coming out, including a bizarre, yet intriguing, German-Lego-like set of Trek ships and gear. Those seem to only be available in Germany, so you’re not going to be able to get that unless you have friends in Germany who can purchase, and then ship it to you.

While there remains no Trek-Lego-set, the hope is that’ll change in the near future. Lego isn’t the brand to bend a knee to anyone, so just because Star Wars is working with Lego doesn’t mean anything. More than likely they may just not see value in huge Star Trek-branded Lego sets.

Most of this is part of ViacomCBS’s plan to push the new series, Prodigy, on younger kids, which means a rush of toys and accessories. It also means collectors get some interesting new pieces for their collection as well.
