Default More details on the uniforms and Enterprise!!! *SPOILERS*

This is a more detailed description of the new toy line that is coming out with the movie. This comes from the German Toy Fair.

http://www.aintitcool.com/node/35566


"Let’s start with STAR TREK. One of the toy companies had a special room
filled with upcoming Star Trek toys. As a fan I look at the new JJ Abrams
movie with both excitement and hesitation. I think the reboot is a good way
to bring Star Trek to a new younger audience. I can’t imagine that the LEGO
Star Wars kids will run hot for William Shatner as Kirk or even Scott Bakula
as Archer. So in terms of survival the reboot is a good thing. But my fears
were that JJ Abrams would bring too much realism in Star Trek – like the tv
series Enterprise, ignoring the magical atmosphere of the original series.
Fortunately I feared too soon. In the special Star Trek room were about 50
action figures, a few phasers, playsets, Spock’s ring, Spock’s ears and the
new Enterprise. The action figures were not the final versions, but you
could hardly tell that they weren’t from the original tv-series but from the
new movie. Kirk wore his famous yellow uniform (and black trousers), Spock
his blue one (a little bit darker though) and Scotty the red one. The
Leonard Nimoy Spock had a white monk-like robe, that looked like a variation
on the one he wore in The Search for Spock. Highlight was Zoe Zaldana as the
new Uhura. She wore the same red communication uniform, but this time the
skirt was much shorter and there was much more emphasis on her breasts. In
this movie she will give Seven of Nine a run for her money!
The phasers and communicators were almost the same as in TOS. Even the
sounds were identical. And then… the new Enterprise. As a toy it had a great
TOS feel to it. It’s a little more ‘organic’ than the original one and I
think the two warp engines and the ‘bite’ taken from the central body are a
little bit bigger. The floor of the new transporter room is red, by the way.
Also shown was another spaceship. It resembled an octopus and could have
appeared in one of the Matrix sequels. I don’t think it was Romulan."

Thumbs up Cool toys

It sounds like the toy line is going to be pretty cool. I remember having all the action figures from the original series and the bridge playset. They never came out with good affordable communicators or phasers though. The kid in me can't wait to buy these, er um, collectables.

The toys sound pretty good, can't wait to see them. WIth Playmates carrying the license, it shouldn't be too hard to find them.

"Bite in the central hull..." I think is refering to the area below the shuttle bay... This will probably resemble TMP refit; this will help us understand how the original ship was transformed into the the refit version. I am pretty excited to see what they have created...

It also looks to me like they used the full-size set built for the exterior shots in the original ST:TMP in the trailer... These were later replaced with CGI in the Directors Cut DVD.

Oh and I love toys! LOL I hope they let Polar Lights do a 1/350th scale model of this NCC-1701...
