Diamond Select Toys previewed the new Star Trek action figure line back in February, and today the company announced The Original Series Series 5 will arrive in August.  The fifth series picks up where the Art Asylum line left off and gives fans updated versions of characters based on classic Star Trek episodes.

  • Captain Kirk – Based on the illustrious Captain’s appearance in “The Enemy Within,” this alternate green and gold uniform is combined with an all-new Captain Kirk head-sculpt. Accessories will include a bottle of Saurian brandy, a favorite of “Evil Kirk.”
  • Dr. McCoy – the cantankerous Chief Medical Officer of the starship Enterprise, Dr. Leonard McCoy was seen in this short-sleeved uniform on several occasions – including the fan-favorite episode “The Tholian Web.”
  • Nurse Chapel – Portrayed by legendary STar Trek actress Majel Roddenberry, this marks the character’s action figure debut in the DST line. Nurse Christine Chapel originally joined the crew of the Enterprise to find her missing husband, however her dedication to duty and attraction to Mr. Spock helped keep her around for years.
  • Yeoman Rand – Also making her action figure debut, ambitious officer Janice Rand is included in this assortment along with her signature hairstyle. Although the sparks occasionally flew between her and Captain Kirk, their relationship remained professional and developed into a decades-long friendship.
