Or maybe he’s just going to give him a massage.
QMx have unveiled two new additions to its Master Series of articulated figures – Captain James T. Kirk and Commander Spock. You might recognize them from an old TV show called Star Trek that aired for a brief time in the ’60s. Obscure, I know.
These figures feature more than 30 points of articulation, screen-accurate clothing and incredibly detailed sculpts of the actors – Shatner personally approved his likeness, while Nimoy’s was approved by his Estate. They ain’t cheap, though. We’re talking $179.99 a pop for the standard versions with limited-edition variants including Kirk’s Phaser Rifle and Spock’s Lute fetching an extra $20. But for this sort of detail, it’s a price some collectors will consider well worth it.
These figures will be available for preorder on qmxonline.com starting on June 23, at 10 AM PT. The figures will debut at SDCC at QMx booth #4145 in limited quantities.

“The economics of the future are somewhat different. You see, money doesn’t exist in the 24th century. The acquisition of wealth is no longer the driving force of our lives. We work to better ourselves and the rest of humanity.”
Meanwhile, back here in the pre-warp era, money still has very real value. To that end, the Canadian Mint has put out a range of snazzy Star Trek coins to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the franchise. As well as a selection of $20 coins featuring full-color images of certain characters and moments from the original series, they’ve put out a coin in the shape of the Starfleet insignia (with Queen Elizabeth II’s head on the back, obviously, making her a de facto Starfleet captain, probably).
The coin itself is 99.9% pure gold and has a face value of $200 Canadian, but it’ll cost you $1,300 (approximately $1,022 US dollars).
All of these coins are legal tender—but who’d want to pay for their gas with a pocketful of Shatners? Wait. That sounds awesome actually.

Star Trek turns 50 this year, and in honor of the occassion, Paramount Pictures will release a special Star Trek 50th Anniversary Blu-ray set that has everything a fan of the original series could want.
That famous picture of Leonard Nimoy dressed as Spock and looking totally badass leaning up against his 1964 Buick is being commemorated by Hot Wheels in what could be the best SDCC exclusive of all-time.
Shelf Space… the final frontier for any toy collector, and you’re going to need just a little more to display these awesome Barbie dolls, announced to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Barbie has shown her Trekkie side. A set of dolls released to tie in with the 2009 movie were released in… well, in 2009, and before that this set of Barbie and Ken dressed in Original Series era uniforms was released in 1996 for the franchise’s 30th anniversary. By our reckoning, though, this new 50th anniversary set is the best-looking of the bunch. [click to continue…]
The crew of the Enterprise has embarked on their most dangerous mission yet—a planet inhabited by giant cats. Plus, they have to dodge gold asteroids and their own insignia.
It’s a really weird part of space.
