Playmobil Goes Large With A ‘Star Trek’ Bird Of Prey Playset


As a parent, we’re all dreading the upcoming holiday season. It means we must try to hunt down whatever the hot new toy is, which has been made even worse because of supply chain shortages. I don’t look forward to having to sucker punch grannies to make sure my kid is happy on Christmas morning, but we all gotta do what we gotta do.

And what is going to be this year’s must-have plaything? The Playmobil Star Trek Bird of Prey, of course! All the kids are begging their parents for it. Just imagine seeing the joy on their little faces when they can reenact the climactic battle between Captain Kirk and the Klingons on the Genesis planet!

Yup, Playmobil is continuing to court the collector’s market with franchised-themed playsets and vehicles. The Bird of Prey is pretty pricey, although it’s smaller than the U.S.S. Enterprise playset. Expect to pay $299.99 when this thing is released in December. While the Playmobil U.S.S. Enterprise focused on the original Star Trek series, the Bird of Prey jumps ahead to Star Trek III: The Search For Spock. Yeah, that’s a weird choice. The smart choice would have been to use it as a Star Trek IV playset with two whales included, but maybe that’ll be the next set.

Regardless, we get a Commander Kruge figure in this set, which is almost worth the price of admission alone.


Commander Kruge’s Klingon Bird-of-Prey, Star Trek fans can travel to different worlds in the Federation, the Klingon Empire, or even the Genesis planet. PLAYMOBIL`s Bird-of-Prey with Lights and Original Sounds is based on the movie from the 80s Star Trek III: The Search for Spock and expands the PLAYMOBIL Star Trek universe. Explore the legendary starship with many mechanical and electronic functions and meet one of the most notorious Klingons, Commander Kruge. Kruge’s crew, Admiral Kirk and Mr. Spock as well as the planet Genesis are also included in this playset.

The Bird of Prey comes with the following figures and accessories:

  • 1 Klingon Commander Kruge
  • 1 Klingon Maltz
  • 1 Klingon Torg
  • 1 Klingon Gunner
  • 1 Admiral James T. Kirk
  • 1 Mr. Spock
  • 1 bottom plate (Planet Genesis) with lava and tripod
  • 1 suspension
  • 4 monitor disks
  • 2 disruptor guns
  • 2 swords
  • 2 communicators
  • 1 pistol
  • 1 electronics module
  • 1 flame large
  • 11 flames small
  • 3 trees
  • 4 pairs of arm cuffs
