Mezco’s “One:12 Collective” presents new Sulu action figure

Mezco unveils new One:12 figure of Spock

The One:12 Collective is proud to present one of the most iconic and enduring characters in the pop culture lexicon: Spock from the original Star Trek series.

First introduced to audiences in 1966, the Star Trek series was a landmark show that sparked in countless fans a love of science, space and technology, and inspired many real world inventions.
Spock, powerfully portrayed by Leonard Nimoy in both the TV series and in the film franchises, embodied a new kind of TV hero: calmly logical, and cerebral but not completely devoid of human emotion. Spock has transcended his genre and has been voted one of the 50 Greatest TV Characters and has recently had a mountain named after him on Pluto.

Digitally modeled to craft an uncanny actor likeness and assembled on a One:12 Collective body with over 28 points of articulation, this figure features a series accurate outfit to create an amazing collectible.

“Star Trek Beyond” Trailer Released

Paramount Pictures has finally released the official trailer for the third film in their Trek reboot series, “Star Trek Beyond.”

A leaked version of the trailer was unofficially released not that long ago, but forget about that – this is the real thing!

Check out the new trailer below:

Not only has the original cast returned, but if the trailer is any indication, this film will have even more explosions, one-liners, and motorcycles than ever seen before in a Trek film. Yes, motorcycles. Not sure how I feel about that just yet, but I will wait to see the movie before I make too many more judgments about that.

“Star Trek Beyond” is set to hit theaters on July 22 in the US, and will star Idris Elba, Chris Pine, Simon Pegg, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Anton Yelchin and Karl Urban.

CBS announces new Star Trek TV show for 2017

CBS Television Studios announced today it will launch a totally new “Star Trek” television series in January 2017. The new series will blast off with a special preview broadcast on the CBS Television Network. The premiere episode and all subsequent first-run episodes will then be available exclusively in the United States on CBS All Access, the Network’s digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service.

The next chapter of the “Star Trek” franchise will also be distributed concurrently for television and multiple platforms around the world by CBS Studios International.

The new program will be the first original series developed specifically for U.S. audiences for CBS All Access, a cross-platform streaming service that brings viewers thousands of episodes from CBS’s current and past seasons on demand, plus the ability to stream their local CBS Television station live for $5.99 per month. CBS All Access already offers every episode of all previous “Star Trek” television series.

The brand-new “Star Trek” will introduce new characters seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilizations, while exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise since its inception in 1966.

Alex Kurtzman will serve as executive producer for the new “Star Trek” TV series. Kurtzman co-wrote and produced the blockbuster films “Star Trek” (2009) with Roberto Orci, and “Star Trek Into Darkness” (2013) with Orci and Damon Lindelof. Both films were produced and directed by J.J. Abrams.

The new series will be produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout. Kurtzman and Heather Kadin will serve as executive producers. Kurtzman is also an executive producer for the hit CBS television series SCORPION and LIMITLESS, along with Kadin and Orci, and for HAWAII FIVE-0 with Orci.

“Star Trek,” which will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2016, is one of the most successful entertainment franchises of all time. The original “Star Trek” spawned a dozen feature films and five successful television series. Almost half a century later, the “Star Trek” television series are licensed on a variety of different platforms in more than 190 countries, and the franchise still generates more than a billion social media impressions every month.

Born from the mind of Gene Roddenberry, the original “Star Trek” series debuted on Sept. 8, 1966 and aired for three seasons – a short run that belied the influence it would have for generations. The series also broke new ground in storytelling and cultural mores, providing a progressive look at topics including race relations, global politics and the environment.

“There is no better time to give ‘Star Trek’ fans a new series than on the heels of the original show’s 50th anniversary celebration,” said David Stapf, President, CBS Television Studios. “Everyone here has great respect for this storied franchise, and we’re excited to launch its next television chapter in the creative mind and skilled hands of Alex Kurtzman, someone who knows this world and its audience intimately.”

“This new series will premiere to the national CBS audience, then boldly go where no first-run ‘Star Trek’ series has gone before – directly to its millions of fans through CBS All Access,” said Marc DeBevoise, Executive Vice President/General Manager – CBS Digital Media. “We’ve experienced terrific growth for CBS All Access, expanding the service across affiliates and devices in a very short time. We now have an incredible opportunity to accelerate this growth with the iconic ‘Star Trek,’ and its devoted and passionate fan base, as our first original series.”

“Every day, an episode of the ‘Star Trek’ franchise is seen in almost every country in the world,” said Armando Nunez, President and CEO, CBS Global Distribution Group. “We can’t wait to introduce ‘Star Trek’s’ next voyage on television to its vast global fan base.”

CBS All Access offers its customers more than 7,500 episodes from the current television season, previous seasons and classic shows on demand nationwide, as well as the ability to stream local CBS stations live in more than 110 markets. Subscribers can use the service online and across devices via CBS.com, the CBS App for iOS, Android and Windows 10, as well as on connected devices such as Apple TV, Android TV, Chromecast, Roku players and Roku TV, with more connected devices to come.

The new television series is not related to the upcoming feature film “Star Trek Beyond,” which is scheduled to be distributed by Paramount Pictures in summer 2016.

In a brief new interview with Hey U GuysStar Trek 3 writer and co-star Simon Pegg revealed some more insight into the rush to complete the next Trek film ahead of the looming launch of production in July.

We’ve got a draft, and now we’re doing notes on the draft. The time’s all squeezed, you know, because it’s kind of like… uh… we start shooting in six weeks!

I laugh when I say that, but really, I am terrified. It’s a very compressed process, but I think it’s bringing out the best in us and it’s an interesting experience.

You can hear what Pegg had to say about this starting at the 1:50 mark below:

The third film in the Trek trilogy series is expected for a release in summer 2016.
