ThinkGeek is back with their next set of Star Trek Geeki Tikis from Beeline Creative, and this time they’re jumping ahead to the 24th Century with the first wave of Star Trek: The Next Generation releases.
We reviewed their Original Series set back in September, and like that first release, the initial Next Generation tiki set is a selection of Enterprise crew and alien enemies — Picard, Worf, and Geordi, along with a Borg drone, a Cardassian soldier, and one profit-seeking Ferengi.
Unlike the TOS collection, this set only has two choices with similar bright colors — Picard in red, and the Ferengi in a vibrant orange. The rest of this set are a little muted in color, compared to greens and blues of the Original Series options.
Even the yellow La Forge design is a bit underwhelming; a nice blue Crusher, purple-hued Troi, or green Romulan tiki would work nicely to spice up the color palette. The interiors of the tikis do add a little bit of flair, with an appropriate green for the Borg and a nice blue for the Cardassian.
And speaking of Troi and Crusher, this is the second Trek tiki set to exclude the female characters; while we know Beeline Creative is planning additional TOS and TNG tiki releases, we hope that they’ll be adding the ladies to the line-up next time around.
The Star Trek: The Next Generation tiki set can be picked up at ThinkGeek now.
