DST have now solicited the Kirk bust bank, and released a new image of it too. The eight-inch tall vinyl Kirk will be joining the Spock bust bank which was released earlier this year, but by Entertainment Earth’s reckoning you’ll need to wait until March to get the Captain.
Video preview from Entertainment Earth, for the latest Wrath of Khan bobble-heads from Bif Bang Pow - Following the release of Kirk, Spock, and Khan, earlier in the year, the rest of the Enterprise crew will be coming along from November.
Alas these books have yet to surface, and according to a recent blog by Star Trek comic collector Rich Handley (who worked on the newspaper strip reprint books) it seems IDW might not be going ahead. Rich has called for a campaign to alert IDW of the demand for these, including encouraging fans to write to IDW to let them know. I echo Rich’s request; these amazing and rare comics deserve to be seen by a wider audience. Come on IDW, make it happen!
