New Star Trek Figures!

I finally got some Art Asylum/Diamond Select Toys Star Trek figures, and finally took a couple of pictures of them. So here they are.

Now, what figures are they, you ask? From left to right, top to bottom:

TNG Season 1 Captain Picard with Captain's Char
TNG Season 7 Captain Picard
First Contact Captain Picard
TNG Season 7 Lt Worf
TNG Season 7 Lt Reginald Barclay
TNG Chief Miles O'Brien
Nemesis Commander Riker
TNG Season 7 Commander Riker
TNG Season 1 Commander Riker with Captain's Chair

Ensign Ro Laren
Nemesis Deanna Troi
Nemesis Lt Cmdr Geordi LaForge
TNG Season 7 Lt Cmdr Geordi LaForge
TNG Season 4 Ensign Wesley Crusher
TNG Season 7 Dr Beverly Crusher
Nemesis Dr Beverly Crusher
First Contact Data
TNG Season 7 Lt Cmdr Data
TNG Nurse Alyssa Ogawa

Chancellor Gowron
DS9 Season 4 Lt Cmdr Worf
DS9 Chief Miles O'Brien
DS9 Julian Bashir
DS9 Season 7 Colonel Kira Nerys
DS9 Captain Benjamin Sisko
DS9 Season 7 Cmdr Worf
DS9 General Martok

I'm really happy with these. They're a nice size, most of them are at least pretty good likenesses, and of course, I love the characters, so that's an added bonus.

More pics will be showing up when I have time for the Pic of the Day.

Pic of the Day 74

Batman Beyond, DCUC Wave 4 (Despero Wave), by Mattel

Batman Beyond is among the greatest animated shows ever, as such, I was really looking forward to this figure, and it doesn't disappoint. Except for the plain silver batarang, which should be black and red. I painted this one, but obviously after I took this picture. It looks better now.

There is also an unmasked variant of this figure, originally exclusively available from KB Toys, but they went out of business prematurely, so Mattel recently made the figure available to other retailers, and it is currenlty showing up at Walmarts, in wave 7 revision cases.

Strider, mini bust by Gentle Giant.

Wow, can't believe it's been almost two weeks since I posted pictures. The Picture of the Day feature will be resuming immediately, but the Star Trek week will be delayed a few days, pending the arrival of a bunch of new Star Trek figures. Stay Tuned! In the meantime, buncha DCUC pics.

New Stuff, April and May 2009
