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.
We continue Trekback Tuesdays still on board Deep Space Nine, as we take a look at the resident medic, Dr. Julian Bashir. From the first wave of Playmates DS9 figures in the early 90’s, how does the good doctor hold up to todays standards of being a good action figure? Check out the video above to see for yourself.
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!
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.
Our weekly episode of Trekback Tuesday was almost interrupted by this inter-dimensional scoundrel, but we were able to seal him up in a clamshell… until we opened him to review.
On this episode, we review Q in Starfleet Uniform from the “Star Trek: The Next Generation” line by Playmates. Is the toy as good as the actual being, or should we send him off to be judged for his crimes against the universe? Watch the video to find out!
On this episode of Trekback Tuesday, we look at a retro figure of a retro character – Yeoman Rand from TOS. One of the later figures closer to the end of Playmates run on Star Trek toys, how does Rand hold up to our review? Watch the video to see!
In this second installment of Trekback Tuesday, we look at the Klingon Warrior Worf action figure by Playmates from 1993, wearing his first season uniform. How does this classic figure from over 20 years ago hold up to today’s standards? Watch the video to find out.
