Star Trek

I was a huge fan of Star Trek: The Next Generation when I was young. I'd watch it with my mother, watch reruns well into college on TV. I was also a fan of DS9 until they started playing around in the wormhole too much, and Voyager until they killed Kess.

Since Playmates made so many of these things, and since they are currently worth almost nothing in the resale market, I've decided to build a little collection of these three shows. Just the basic versions of everybody, no weird costumes or multiple uniform changes.

This will probably be a collection I build fairly quickly through trades, but I'm sure a few items will remain elusive. 

My collection so far:

Captain Benjamin Sisko and Jake Sisko

Major Kira Nerys and Gul Dukat

Quark, Morn

Lt. Commander Warf

POP! Vinyl

POP! Vinyl figures by Funko

These are all adorable. They started showing up at Barnes and Noble stores a while ago, and I held off buying any until they made the Manah Manah guy from the Muppets. I don't want all of them, nor do I want all of any particular wave, however I am picking up a few here and there.

My Collection So Far:

Manah Manah

Dr. Teeth
