Here we bring you a sweet exclusive, the first group photo of the entire cast from the upcoming blockbuster film "Star Trek." Hmmm. Don’t they look a bit … stiff?


OK, sorry. It’s been a long day. Actually these are the nifty, new 6-inch "Trek" action figures from Playmates Toys. They will retail for $8.99 and hit shelves in April.

I love the older Spock in the back row and bad-guy Nero looks pretty good, too, which will please actor Eric Bana, who may have thought his action-figure days were over after "Hulk. "For you collectors, keep reading to the bottom to see the specs and features.

As for "Star Trek" the film, check this out…

    Frightening that the dolls, I meant, action figures of John Cho and Zach Quinto do really look like them. But good god, they're not even close with Chris Pine.

    As a Star Trek fan and a collector of Star Trek toys I am disappointed in this first view of them. I think all the heads look awful. I was really hoping Art asylum would get the contract on this as all of their star trek toys have looked fantastic. Yes they are more pricey but well worth it. Hopefully the 12' toys look better than the 6' ones do.
    At least I wont feel bad about buying them and opening them up for my kids to play with.
