Star Trek retro cloth action figures

Starting in 2007, Diamond Select Toys launched a line of action figures based on those produced by Mego in the 1970s. The "retro cloth" range is a mix of faithful reproductions of the classic figures, updated versions of some characters, and brand new characters not originally included in the line.

Typically the series was released in waves of two characters, featuring a Starfleet character with an alien. Almost all the characters are from TOS, with the exception of wave nine in the series, the only TNG characters in the range.

The series had regular releases until 2012, totally twenty-one characters and a playset.

    Appendices

    Several more characters have been teased or previewed, but not yet entered production.

    In the prototype stage at the same time as the Pike and Salt Vampire figures, there were also to be new Mego-style versions of Nurse Chapel and Vina as an Orion Slave Girl. Indeed it appears they would have been paired up differently had all four characters been released.


    The TNG packaging also featured illustrations of Data and a Klingon, implying they would have been next had the TNG line continued further.

    In 2016 DST planned to reissue the range, but due to lack of retailer interest only the bridge playset was released again. Had the reissue gone ahead, some of the pairing would have been changed, with Spock released alongside Khan. Additionally two new figures were planned: Ageneric red shirt security officer figure, which would have been issued in two variants, with black or brown hair, and one with officer rank stripes. He was to have been joined by a variant of the original Cheron figure, with the black and white swapped, making this Lokai rather than Bele.
