Coming this fall: a new Gorn figure!

I love the Gorn from classic Star Trek. He probably has the highest ratio of toys-made-of-him to actual-screen-time of any character in television history :) and I own most of them.

The best likeness to date is the Art Asylum version -- but Mego has a new one coming this fall (that's a prototype for it pictured above), and I'll be first in line to get one. :) More details at the always interesting

I shall be merciful and quick ...

Very cool. Did Gorn inspire the Farseer books at all?

To some (small degree). Did they, and other reptilian aliens (such as the Sleestak from LAND OF THE LOST) make an impression on me as a kid? Sure. Did they cause me to write a parable about Galileo, Darwin, and Freud, and their interactions with Catholicism? Not at all. :)

Nice figure but it doesn't give the size of the figure, even on their website. My guess it's 7 tall."

Also, do you know of any Star Trek figures that have voice chips in them? I've got some of the Halmark ship ornaments but haven't yet found any figures with voice chips in them
