Star Trek: Transporter Series
Playmates Toys 1998 series of Star Trek: Transporter Series figures had a lot of unique thoughts put into them, and for the most part stands out as a really good line. For starters, the package is so unique when compared to your average bubble package. Of course the downside to this is that they're easily crushed, and mint condition ones can be difficult to track down.
We love the concept of the lower half of each character being clear plastic as if they are truly beaming to or from somewhere. For kids, this would be a great feature - Especially if you had a regular version of the character to swap back and forth. We can only imagine the amount of fun we would have had with these in our younger years - Not that they're not fun now.
Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott*Lt. Uhura
Lt. Commander Geordi LaForge*Lt. Worf
Though the majority of the series was released retail wide, there are a handful of figures that were made exclusive to Target. These four can be extremely challenging to track down, and more so to get them at a reasonable price.
Ensign Pavel Chekov*Lt. Hikaru Sulu
Yeoman Janice Rand*Nurse Christine Chapel
Star Trek is definitely no stranger to the toy isle. The franchise has had numerous series since its inception in 1966. We're sure many more toys will follow.
