Star Trek released the first look at the Prodigy line of figures from Playmates.
Colletors and fans with kids who want to play with new Trek toys are in luck, as the long-expected Star Trek: Prodigy line of Trek action figures has been unveiled. The new line will include Dal R’El figure with Murf, Gwyndala, Jankom Pog, Hologram Janeway, and Zero, with Rok-Tahk coming in 2023.
Of the new action figures, Rok-Tahk and Hologram Janeway aren’t shown in the preview posted to Star Trek.com. The toys will be available in October of 2022, and according to the press release, the new line of toys will include the USS Protostar as well.
The new line of Trek action figures for Prodigy was presumed to be the reason the toyline came back to Trek after nearly two decades of not working together. The toyline was immensely popular in the 90s, however, and helped lead to both Trek and Playmates reaching more fans than people probably ever expected.
"These five-inch, 1:14 scale figures will feature 14 points of articulation and come packaged in a brand-new blister pack style designed exclusively for the Star Trek: Prodigy toy line.“We are excited to be bringing Star Trek: Prodigy toys and accessories home to families for the first time. This new lineup we are unveiling is highly focused on playability — we want kids to take the toys out of the packaging and engage in imaginative play as if they were part of the Star Trek world themselves,” said Karl Aaronian, senior vice president, Playmates Toys.The action figures will be available at online retailers beginning in October 2022 and on store shelves in spring 2023. New Star Trek: Prodigy ships, vehicles, and role play toys will be available later in 2023."
Star Trek: Prodigy joins the other new line of action figures from Playmates
The Trek: Prodigy will join The Wrath of Khan, The Next Generation, and Discovery with new figures. With Khan Noonien Singh, James T. Kirk, Spock, Patrick Stewart, William Riker, Data, Saru, Michael Burnham, and the six Prodigy figures, that ups the return line to 14.
The non-Prodigy figures will be available in July.
