Kate Mulgrew Calls ‘Star Trek: Prodigy’ Characters In Live-Action A “Likelihood”​




:unsure:

Apparently Kurtzman is promising a big trek crossover event. So maybe, hopefully, we'll see Prodigy and Lower Decks characters in live action.
I like Prodigy as an animated series. Lowers Decks, meh.

I’d be more interested in seeing Scott Bakula back on screen.

Hey guys, I just opened the Janeway figure for Father's Day, and while I was putting one of the hands on the right arm, the wrist peg snapped off. Anyone know if there are other pegs I can substitute on it? Or will Exo6 send the wrist pegs out if requested?

Didn’t it come with extra wrist pegs? I also opened Janeway for Father’s Day and I’m pretty sure extras were included with mine…

Mine didn't. BUT remember that Janeway had a second production run, it may be that the second run added additional pegs.

Snapping Janeway's pegs is a known issue - one of mine is hanging by a thread. If anyone's found an off-the-shelf replacement, please share!

I believe I recall Nanjin mentioning that the EXO-6 female bodies weren't ready in time for Janeway and that she uses a body from a third party. That may mean that extra pegs can be found out there in the wild if we know what to look for.

Yeah, at first I was like "Oh. Of course there are extra pegs. There's always extra pegs." But not in this one.
So, if it is a 3rd-party body, maybe I can get some extras elsewhere. Or Nanjin, whenever he pops in, can maybe direct us on what to do.

Addendum:
So I had emailed Sideshow support last night, and what do you know, less than 12 hours later they are already shipping me new wrist pegs.
I know we all like to give Sideshow crap on here, BUT I have always found their customer support to be top notch. THey could have easily just said "Oh, that Janeway shipped out to you in March, we are under no obligation to replace it since it's been months already." But instead they just are shipping the pegs without argument. They also replaced the whole Hot Toys Aquaman I'd gotten from them that had a scuffed rear end, and replaced the Sideshow R2D2 dome that didn't light up properly. I'm honestly pretty happy with them. I've dealt with lots of companies that give a lot more pushback than Sideshow has ever given me.

Seven is up for pre-order in case anyone else who doesn't visit the VOY thread wasn't aware.

If someone is interested in preordering Seven and they don’t have the wherewithal to check the active Voyager thread…they probably don’t want it badly enough to deserve a heads up in this thread. :LOL:

I tried not ordering Janeway because then I'd need every other essential Voyager figure. So I ordered her for my mother's birthday (since she is also a fan). But then I ended up getting her an apple watch, and then somehow forgot to change the delivery address from my office... so here she is!

She's pretty cool. I wonder how long before my co-workers notice her? She's an "action figure" after all and not a doll, so totally legit right? Lol

So were more 7 Of Nine figures produced then originally intended? Never expected her preorder to still be active anywhere based on previous discussions in this forum - but I may have missed something.
She’s an open order like all the others so far rather than being limited like TMP will be.

Just stick to the captains like me (and even then, not all captains!)

I do make an exception for Spock and some of the core TNG crew.
I started off as a 'Just the Captains' collector.

Then the EMH was announced...
Then Mission Chicago happened...
Now I'm a Captains + Entire Voyager crew + Other things I might want.

I was always going to grab up as many as struck my fancy, personally (Which is a lot).
I've already basically shelved any other franchise bar certain long-term wants. It'd be nice, for instance, to ever get a new sixth scale Big Chap alien. Or Candyman. Or a sixth-scale Pfeiffer Catwoman. But other than that? I'm pretty much only watching for Star Trek releases these days.

I ordered just Janeway- I probably would have grabbed Picard at that point for a Captain's club, but they are sold out. Which is good because if I got Picard I'd need to get Q. And the Captain's chair at least. I'm a big fan of George Takei so I would get Sulu, but I don't want Mirror Universe version, so that makes it easier to pass. Plus he'd be all alone bc I'm not a fan of any other guy original ST, well, except for Spock I guess. But not Mirror Universe Spock. He looks weird.


So with original Star Trek guys out of the way, I figure just Janeway, and then I ordered Tuvok to keep her company. But then of course I preordered Seven because Seven. I was never a big fan of the EMH, but if I'm getting the other three, it seems petty to leave him out, and maybe I'll regret it one day when he's sold out and only available from secondary sources. Or maybe not. Still deciding...

I'm also probably going to get Burnham. Because female leads are just not that common in sci fi and solidarity and such. I think she can hang with Janeway.

I do wish they all had rooted hair, but not waiting for that to happen.

I ended up ordering at Timewalker toys for free shipping and absence of taxes. Plus, they sent me a DM so I wanted to reward their tenacity.
I had signed up with Collectorzown initially, but their prices are a bit higher and I didn't have any coupons to use, so I never paid for my cart.

I often order through Sideshow because it's easy and points. But they do charge taxes these days and their shipping has gotten so high. Plus last time I ordered a pricey doll from them they didn't even bother taping the shipper shut. So that gave me a heart attack. Plus they no longer save points from year to year so that is annoying.
