Beaming Kirk and Spock Action Figures

by John Thomas

One of my favorite aspects of the original Star Trek series was the Transporter. Not only was the technology super cool, but they were always using it to create incredible drama, either when it malfunctioned and when they had to use it to beam a crew member up from the surface of an ultra dangerous planet just at the last second.

Funko’s Reaction line has just a couple of Entertainment Earth exclusive action figures that incorporate the Transporter in a really interesting way. They have used likenesses of Spock and Kirk from the classic series and created them in mid-beam – basically they have put sparkly paint on their lower halves to make them look like the Transporter is in the process of sending them out into the beyond. The figures cost $12.99(USD) each and are 3 3/4 inches tall.

While I am sure lots of Star Trek collectors will snap these up, I have two issues. First, the face of the Spock figure is a lot more authentic looking than Kirk’s, and why didn’t they add an audio element. If you could press a button and hear the classic tinkling Transporter noise then these would be a lot more fun.
