Entertainment Weekly announced this morning that CBS and Mattel have joined forces, in honor of Star Trek’s 50th anniversary, to create three barbies: Uhura, Spock and James T. Kirk. It’s interesting that they didn’t round out the rest of the crew, I mean where’s Scotty, Bones and Chekov? I’ll have to do it old school and turn Ken into one of the other characters, like when I turned Ken into Magnum P.I. 

They have a very 1960’s Barbie look to them, which is great, and will be avail be for $34.95 later this month.

I also mentioned that  MAC Cosmetics will launch a Star Trek line at San Diego Comic-Con next month in celebration of the 50th anniversary. I cannot wait for that!!!


EW also mentions several other fun, Trekkie things, that will be available this year including a live event series called Trek Talk that will cover topics like:

The Prime Directive – Exploring our universe, ethically
