Trekback Tuesday: “Captain Sisko” from “Trials & Tribble-ations” figure review

Welcome to another Trekback Tuesday! On this episode, we look at a figure from a classic DS9 episode, “Trials & Tribble-ations” and check out one of the figures from a wave of mid-90’s Playmates figures that covered this fan-favorite episode.

Captain Sisko is decked out in his retro garb from the episode, and we review the figure in-depth, as well as enter a contest that ended 20 years ago! If you want to see what the heck we are talking about, watch the video above!

Trekback Tuesday: “Gul Dukat” figure review

The scourge of Cardassia, the sorrow of Bajor, and the next figure we are looking at as part of Trekback Tuesday – meet Gul Dukat.

From the first wave of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine action figures by Playmates, Dukat is arguably the most evil character in all of Trekdom. Does his action figure hold up to his evilness, or is it just plain bad? Watch the video to find out.

Trekback Tuesday: “Lt. Jadzia Dax” figure review

We continue our journey into Deep Space Nine on this episode of Trekback Tuesday by meeting their science officer, Lt. Jadzia Dax! The oldest member of the DS9 crew, this version of Jadzia by Playmates is not quite as old but still qualifies as a retro figure by todays standards. We take a look at her and see if she holds up more modern figures.

Plus, Space Caps!

Trekback Tuesday: “Dr. Julian Bashir” figure review

We continue Trekback Tuesdays still on board Deep Space Nine, as we take a look at the resident medic, Dr. Julian Bashir.

Trekback Tuesday: “Quark” figure review

Continuing where we left off last time on Trekback Tuesday aboard Deep Space Nine, we wander onto the promenade to check out this Playmates action figure of the local barkeep, Quark. Was this retro figure worth the gold-pressed latinum we paid for it, or should it be tossed out into the breach? Watch the video to find out!

Trekback Tuesday: “Chief Miles O’ Brien” figure review

It’s time we take a break from exploring the galaxy and see what is happening by the ole’ wormhole.

On this episode of Trekback Tuesday, we meet the newly transplanted chief of engineering aboard the Deep Space Nine space station, Chief Miles O’ Brien. Fresh from serving aboard the USS Enterprise under Captain Picard, O’Brien was from the first wave of DS9 action figures by Playmates. Does this figure hold up to the standards of action figures today, or is it back to running the transporter room for him? Check out the video to see.
