TOY FAIR 2017: STAR TREK Bendables Are Coming From NJ Croce

Beam them up!

Our favorite purveyor of top-notch bendables, NJ Croce, is adding a new property to its excellent line later this year: Star Trek.

From the back of the company’s 2017 catalog.

If they do half as good a job as they’ve done with, say, their Batman ’66 line, this will be worth popping open a fresh bottle of Romulan ale.

The first Batman ’66 bendables boxed set.

No prototypes to show yet, but here’s what the company’s command staff told me at Toy Fair:

— There will be two boxed sets: The Bridge will feature Kirk, Uhura, Sulu and Chekov. The Transporter Room will include Kirk, Spock, Bones and Scotty.

— If these do well, there’s the possibility of aliens, though not at the start.

— There will be a Kirk/Picard two-pack.

— And get this: They plan to release Admiral Kirk and Khan as 6-inch bendables. (After all, it is the 35th anniversary of The Wrath of Khanthe greatest Star Trek story ever.)

— They’re looking to start rolling some of these out June/July.

So keep reading 13th Dimension, because we’ll be updating this as things progress. Also keep an eye out for our full NJ Croce report from Toy Fair — because we’ve got more to tell (and show) you.

  1. I don’t want to sound like a conspiracist but I don’t understand the very conspicuous absence of The Riddler in the packaging and promotion of the DVDs and box sets like this release. Is there something going on with the Gorshin estate I don’t know about? Are his heirs making things cloudy and difficult the way Jimi Hendrix’s sister is doing with his image? The Riddler belongs in the discussion of the big stars.

    • The Riddler will be in a second boxed set that’s coming out shortly, Andy. The Riddler wasn’t in Wave 1, that’s all. No conspiracy here, I assure you.
