Toy manufacturer Art Asylum showed off its range of Star Trek toys and action figures at the recent San Diego International Comic-Con.
One of the highlights of the display was a sneak peak at Art Asylum's 'Borg Assimilation' range, set to debut in late 2002/early 2003, according to Figures.com.
The line of seven-inch figures depicts several well-known Trek species - the Hirogen, Cardassians, Klingons and Ferengi - after they have been assimilated by the Borg. A prototype of the assimilated Ferengi (as seen above) was on show together with a completed Hirogen figure.
Art Asylum also displayed its Original Series Minimates range - three-inch figures of Kirk, Bones, Spock, Gorn, Khan and Mugato. Each figure, based on Japan's Kubrick toy line, has twelve points of articulation. "Minimates will be part of a line of cutting-edge items of the future based on traditional toys of the past," according to the toy manufacturer's web site.
Enterprise wasn't neglected either, with several figures from the 'Away Team' line on show. These seven-inch figures feature NX-01 crew members Archer, T'Pol, Trip and Hoshi in their spacesuits, as well as Shran the Andorian and a Nausicaan from 'Fortunate Son'.
The first wave of seven-inch figures from 'Broken Bow,' including Archer, Reed, T'Pol, Mayweather, Klaang and Silik, as well as the phaser/communicator Trek-Tek pack, are now available. The Picard, Data, Shinzon and Reman Viceroy 'Star Trek: Nemesis' figures are set to debut later this year.
