Hasbro has teamed up with CBS Consumer Products to create a new line of Star Trek properties beginning in 2013. The toy line will be in support of the new “Star Trek” movie sequel from Paramount Pictures, which opens May 17. 2013.
While the product offerings from Hasbro will include action figures, roleplay toys, leading the product offering will be a line of premium KRE-O Star Trek building sets featuring fantastical spaceships and legendary characters from the franchise.
With that said, here’s your first look at Hasbro’s upcoming Star Trek Kre-O figures!
“The STAR TREK property is an entertainment giant known by millions across the globe and Hasbro is thrilled to be working with CBS Consumer Products to bring the franchise to life in toy form,” said John Frascotti, chief marketing officer, Hasbro, Inc. “As a global branded play company, Hasbro delivers the best properties in a variety of formats to consumers around the world. We’re excited to offer fans the opportunity to experience icons of STAR TREK in exhilarating new ways with our KRE-O building sets as well as with new roleplay items and more.”
“Hasbro and STAR TREK have always been known as innovative brands,” said Liz Kalodner, Executive Vice President and General Manager of CBS Consumer Products. “Bringing them together in this new toy line will give fans of the entire STAR TREK franchise new ways to experience the final frontier, including the first complete construction program.”
STAR TREK will mark the third major entertainment property to be featured in the KRE-O line from Hasbro. The Company successfully introduced the KRE-O brand in 2011 with building sets featuring its globally popular TRANSFORMERS characters. In 2012 Hasbro continues the KRE-O TRANSFORMERS line and is introducing KRE-O BATTLESHIP building sets based on its gaming property and upcoming live action movie BATTLESHIP, from Universal Pictures. More details about Hasbro’s STAR TREK product offerings will be announced at a later date.
