Diamond Select Toys are now offering their Star Trek: Into Darkness Kirk And Spock Select Figures  These figures are part of the 7″ Select line and have about 16 points of articulation. Included are interchangeable hands, weapons, effects pieces, communicators and transport pod display bases.

A Diamond Select Toys release! The toy line everyone’s waited for is finally here! Since J.J. Abrams debuted his new Star Trek universe (the “Kelvin Timeline”) in 2009, fans have asked for a screen-accurate, 7″ scale, fully articulated line of toys. Now, DST has brought the new timeline to the world of Select action figures! These screen-accurate figures of Kirk and Spock capture the costumes and faces of the new movies, and each features approximately 16 points of articulation, as well as multiple accessories and connecting transporter pads. Packaged in display-ready Select action figure packaging with side-panel artwork for shelf reference.

Thank you to Diamond Select Toys for providing their Star Trek Into Darkness Kirk And Spock Select Figures for review.

Availability: January 2019

Both Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock are packaged in the standard Select packaging with artwork from the movie on the front, and an image of the actors on the sides, and images of the figure as well as a description on the back.

 

 

Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock are based on their appearance in the 2013 film Star Trek: Into Darkness and are sculpted to match the likeness of Actors Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto. The figures are sculpted in their Star Fleet uniforms with Captain Kick in his gold command uniform, and Mr. Spock in his blue science officer uniform. Captain Kirk stands at roughly 6 3/4″ tall and Mr. Spock stands at 7″ tall, making him taller than Kirk just as he should be. Both Kirk and Spock have sculpted textures on their Star Fleet uniforms, with the communicator badge on the upper left side of their chests, silver stripes on their sleeves, and black shirts around the collars. Both of the pants are in a dark grey, and they have black boots, with Spock’s being taller than Kirk’s. The sculpts are very similar to each other, but as they are similar, these two figures have 100% new sculpts and they don’t share parts as it may seem like they do. The shirts and pants are wrinkled, which gives it a realistic look and feet to it, and the boots have silver buckles on either side of them.

 

 

The figures so have the same articulation, and they include ball jointed heads, ball jointed torsos, ball hinged elbows, swivel biceps, hinged elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, swivel-hinged hips, swivel thighs, double jointed knees, hinged and rocker ankles.

Each figure also comes with many of the same accessories, except that the larger of their phaser rifles have different sculpts and Spock comes with a “Life Long and Prosper” right hand sculpt. Mr. Spock can hold his phaser rifle in both hands, and as Kirk’s is shorter, he cannot. Both figures also include interchangeable hands (4x Kirk, 5x Spock), a phaser, two shorter phaser rifles that share the same sculpt, two longer phaser rifles that are different, effect pieces for both phaser rifles that are yellow and red, communicators and transport pod display bases.

Overall, Diamond Select Toys is offering two great figures here that have a superior likeness to Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto, and both of the sculpts and accessories look as detailed as they do in the movie. These figures should also be compatible with the older Art Asylum Star Trek figures, including DST’s upcoming Borg Drone. Both figures are available at comic shops now, and can also be ordered at the stores below:
