STAR TREK - The Motion Picture PLAYMATES Figures.

Hi. Thought to show you my collection of Star Trek- The Motion Picture (TMP) - (1979) .
These 5" Figures are by Playmates- being produced in the early 1990s. My collection was made up in 2014.

 Above: Shown is the full array of my 13 figures for Star Trek -The Motion Picture.

From L to R. 
Ensign Chekov, Mr Spock, Captain Kirk, Dr McCoy.

From L to R.
Mr Scott (Engineer), Nurse Christine Chapel, William Deker, Chekov.

From L to R.
Dr McCoy, Lt Uhura, Ilia Probe, Mr Sulu.

From L to R.
Mr Sulu, Yoeman Janice Rand, Bashir, Dax.
( I included the Bashir and Dax figures as 'Extras').

Above: These are my seven Conversion Figures.

Conversions: Mr Scott, Nurse Chapel and W. Deker.

Conversions: Chekov, Yoeman Rand, Bashir and Dax.

It cost a fair bit to do my seven converted figures as I needed two different figures for each final converted figure. Yoeman Janice Rand was the most difficult to do as I had to re-model the figures hair from the 'Beehive' of TOS to a more 1970s style for Janice.
( You may note the 'hands' on the female figure conversions are not exactly the right color - I have now a bottle of Vallejo acrylic paint which will be better and I will do re-painting tomorrow).

UPDATE: 14th Sept 2017.

L to R: Deker, Rand, Dax, Chapel.
Have re-painted the hands and necks of these figures.
The Vallejo acrylic 'Flat Flesh' works well.


The figures shown above are the complete range from Playmates for The Motion Picture (1979) Series. I think Playmates missed a golden opportunity by electing not produce a complete range of figures. However, I am very pleased with my 'Conversions' and am certainly glad to now have a complete range of characters.

Well - that is about it for now.
Until next time.
