Remember when Paramount rebooted Star Trek with a series geared toward a much younger generation? Remember how that spiraled into terrible, angsty fan-fiction TV shows featuring Klingon intercourse and political commentary as subtle as a kick to the crotch? Me, too! Now you can relive how it all began with Hiya Toys’ Kelvin Timeline action figures!
Although Kirk and Bones are small, they feature similar articulation found in Hasbro’s Star Wars Vintage Collection figures. From my experience with figures from this company, They’re great display pieces but come off as a little too fragile to be taken out of the packaging. Thankfully, their packaging makes them look great on the shelf.
The two Starfleet legends will be released during the first quarter of 2024. They can be pre-ordered directly from Hiya Toys.
“This brand-new James T. Kirk action figure stands at 105mm tall and faithfully reproduces his appearance from Star Trek 2009. He is dressed in the iconic yellow uniform representing command and strategic personnel. The Starfleet emblem on his clothes, communicator, phaser pistol, and other accessories are all finely detailed, capturing the essence of his character even at the 1/18 scale.”
“This brand-new Dr. McCoy action figure stands at 105mm tall and faithfully reproduces his appearance from Star Trek 2009. He is dressed in the iconic blue uniform representing medical and science personnel. The Starfleet emblem on his clothes, the meticulously crafted two medicine bottles, and medical equipment accessories are all finely detailed, capturing the essence of his character even at the 1/18 scale.”
Kirk will have the following accessories:
- Star Trek logo base
- (2) interchangeable hands
Likewise, Bones comes with character-specific parts:
- (2) medicine bottles
- Interchangeable hands
- Medical pouch
- Medical Tricorder
- Star Trek logo base
Honestly, I don’t have an issue with how either of these characters was portrayed in the trilogy. The stories they were thrust into sucked, not to mention the whitewashing / total character overhaul of Khan Noonien Singh.
