Wow, nice. Brings back fond memories. Too bad they didn't equip one (or more) of the Federation troops with a phaser rifle.

WOW, fantastic!!!

PS. Hmm. Wait. Are these figures made from gold-pressed latinum or some such rare alloy?

Licensing maybe?

And they are 32mm not 28mm per the link.

Really nice! But very pricy. Is Scotty's figure missing a couple of fingers?

A couple of the Fed sculpts remind me of the "Action Delivery Force" version of Hermes Conrad. The guy with the communicator mostly.

Only other quibble is the Feds are TOS uniforms while the Klingons and Romulans are TNG style.

(I finish writing and that last picture pops in, so I'll change it to – are there TOS style Klingons and Romulans too?)

£5.00 GBP per figure for a character figure is not over much given licencing costs. I prefer the TOS figures, so would need appropriate period Klingons and Romulans to go with them.

The prices appear to be in line with other boutique minis, Infinity etc. Take into consideration licensing costs, and it's not too bad. MimiMarket carries them at a discount too.

The only thing that puzzles me me is why they haven't done a generic Federation pack. As these are intended for their Star Trek RPG, it's be nice if there were figures players could use for their PCs.

A generic Federation TNG pack is due in the next release apparently.

ScottWashburn Sponsoring Member of TMP07 Dec 2017 7:48 a.m. PST

Yes, they need some Federation security people with holes blown through them!

I saw some of these at a local game store.

But at $50.00 USD a box that's too much for me so I'll pass.

Happy you like them guys!. (smile)

The Romulan set appears to have two identical poses …

Norrins08 Dec 2017 5:53 a.m. PST

If they remain true to the Modiphius boxsets, the Klingons and Romulan sets include 10 figures each respectively. It does mean you'll get a couple of identical poses.

I've got some painted examples on my blog – link

Lol. At that price, you'd think there would be no duplicates.

The Romulan and Klingon boxes have 10 each, so it's actually four repeat sculpts actually. Klingons have two.

They increased the number of minis in those boxes after all the complaints about the poor value of the boxes. Romulans are still the poorest value IMO, considering only four of the sculpts are actually wearing canon uniforms…

Klingon set looks like the best buy to me. They should work for any era outside TOS. TOS have the issue that modiphius has not released any other TOS sets for them to be compatible with (yet), but are otherwise pretty good. TNG has something like 3-4 different uniforms on display, which is an….interesting choice, Romulan box is a bit of a mess imho.

Hopefully the upcoming generic crewmen TNG era set will have a more cohesive uniform look than the bridge crew set. I think I heard somewhere that Borg are coming after that?

Norrins08 Dec 2017 1:21 p.m. PST

My Klingon box had two sets of repeat sculpts – the Klingon shooting from the hip and the Klingon female waving the Bat'leth above her head.

Those Romulan uniforms are just begging to be painted as wearing plaid flannel shirts… ;-)
