A most unusual Star Trek collectible collection is starting this January from the Hamilton Collection: statue figurines of M&M’S ® brand versions of the 1960s crew!
The first approximately 4” tall resin figurine is entitled “To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before” and will be M&M’s “Spokescandy Red” character dressed as Captain James T. Kirk in his iconic chair. The figurine includes hand painted details. The collection continues with issue two, “Live Long & Prosper” (presumably an M&M dressed as Spock) and three, “Bad News Gentlemen, I Melt For No One” (which hasn’t been revealed yet).
Star Trek is following in the proverbial footsteps of Star Wars which during its 2005 Episode III: Revenge of the Sith marketing campaign had a successful partnership with M&M’S creating candy editions of famous characters from a galaxy far, far away.
Additional Star Trek figurines are also planned, each costing $29.99. Preordering and subscription details at Hamilton Collection’s website.
