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.
They drop in July, though Amazon is currently taking preorders for these newly-announced dolls of Kirk, Spock and Uhura (Uhura is currently listed as unavailable) for $34.99.
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…]
If the Funko POP! figures have proved anything, it’s how much fans love chibi-style, adorable takes on their favorite charactes. QMx has had some products like that with their Little Damn Heroes line, but I think these new Q-Pop Trekkies figures hit a different scale of cute.
The Trekkies are about 4.5″ tall, made from PVC, and available in an open edition. The wave includes Captain Kirk, Uhura, and Spock and all were designed by Mohammad Haque. They come with a tiny word balloon, and the surface is dry erase. You can insert your own quotes and words using the marker that comes with each figure. That part is especially clever.
As with anything QMx announces, these aren’t available to order or even pre-order yet. Head to the product pages to sign up for the waiting list to get the first chance to pre-order when the product is released in Q2 2013.
Check out the Spock and Uhura figures after the break.

The Potato Head figures come in packs of two and are expected to ship in August.
