The return of Playmates to Star Trek toys is akin to Kenner being reborn from that tactical Joe missile strike that killed them. Playmates best known for TMNT figures they made their empire on and then produced an ungodly amount of Trek toys. Finally comes back to more Trek, just long enough away to really make us want them again. Good job son, damn good job you got me that’s for sure.
