The Future Begins Part 4: Burger King Toys



We continue our look at the merchandise for the upcoming Star Trek film with this first look at the new toys available exclusively at Burger King's with the purchase of their Kids Meal. The promotion begins the week of May 4. These super deformed toys are very similar to the ones produced in 2005 for Burger King's Revenge of the Sith promotion. The cool thing about these is that they also come with sound chips, so each figure has a line of dialogue from the film. The promotion will also include some super deformed mini vehicles and props. The Enterprise toy will play a piece of the Alexander Courage theme to The Original Series. Other vehicles include The "Jellyfish" (Spock's Ship), The U.S.S. Kelvin (George Kirk's ship), A Federation Shuttlecraft, The Police Hoverbike seen chasing young James T. Kirk on the first trailer and a Klingon Warbird.



A TOS style communicator and tricorder miniature will also be available. Burger King will also have a set of four collector's glasses available for purchase. Posters advertising those have begun to show up at Burger King restaurants nationwide. Also keep an eye out for a TV commercial to go along with this promotion. The commercial was actually shot on the Enteprise set at Paramount during principal photography of the film.

  4. Yeah, but where's the fun in that? Just kidding, some stores will sell the whole set as well, at least they did that hear for the Star Wars watches promo.

  5. I hit a BK today at lunch, asked about just buying toys and they brought a couple forward and I bought them both... along with a #1 with a DP!

    So I now have Kirk and Scotty! Thanks for the tip guys, now I need to find a BK with a larger selection of toys... Oh and the glasses looked cool as well, might need to go back and get some of those as well.

  6. Cool; I just got back from meeting my wife for lunch and we scored a complete set of the glasses (which are really cool) and one of each of the following toys: Kirk, Scotty, Tricorder, Shuttle.

    I have to say, I was not impressed at all by the paint job on Kirk; his fists and face were splotchy, especially his nose. For 90 cents, though, I suppose I ought not complain.

  7. You can buy the set of glasses for $6.99. I just picked up a set.

  9. I'll probably go back and try and just buy the toys too. Although a lot of sets have been popping up on ebay at decent prices. Might also consider just getting one of those sets.

  10. The woman at Burger King wouldn't sell me the toys. She said I'd have to buy one kids meal for each toy.
    I'm going to just get the set on Ebay and not waste any more time going to BK.
