Star Trek toys have a long and weird history. (If you haven’t yet, check out the “Star Trek” episode of The Toys That Made Us!) And last year, Playmates Toys returned to the fold when they reacquired the license for all Star Trek properties. The new line launches this year, and yesterday they, along with Paramount Consumer Products, revealed a first look at the upcoming figures for Star Trek: Prodigy.
The five-inch, 1:14 scale figures will feature 14 points of articulation. They will be packaged in a brand-new blister pack style that has been designed exclusively for the Star Trek: Prodigy line.
The figures will be available from online retailers in October 2022 and hit store shelves sometime in spring of 2023. At launch the line will include Dal R’El (with Murf), Gwyndala, Jankom Pog, Hologram Janeway, and Zero. Rok-Tahk will be available early next year. Also available next year, expect new ships, vehicles, and role-play toys all from 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.
Star Trek: Prodigy, which currently streams on Paramount+ and will air on Nickelodeon later this year, follows a young crew of escaped prisoners who find an abandoned Starfleet vessel called the Protostar. They are guided across the universe by a holographic Kathryn Janeway, who introduces both the characters and the audience to everything there is to know about Starfleet.
This is a show that works on multiple levels. Kid or adult, long-time fan or relative newbie, there will be something to love about this series. If you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend checking it out! It’s only ten episodes, so it will be fairly easy to binge. You’ll definitely want to get caught up before season 1 returns later this year!
