If you have been bemoaning the fact that Leonard Nimoy has stated he has no interest in playing Spock anymore (or acting for that matter), you’ll get a small moment of relief, and humor, on this week’s The Big Bang Theory.

Nimoy will lend his voice to an 8-inch, cloth costumed Mr. Spock figure from Diamond Select Toys’ Star Trek Retro Cloth action figure line! An exact replica of the classic 1970s Mego figure (faithfully executed for Diamond Select by the designers at EMCE Toys), Mr. Spock has a conversation with Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) in a dream, and convinces Sheldon to open up a rare, mint-in-box Teleporter Playset (released in the U.K. by Palitoy in 1975).
