Do we know if they've secured the '66 license? This is a line whose treatment I would love to see Adam and Burt given.

Just my two cents....

So far SH Figurarts is currently focusing on comic book and more recent movie lines in regards to their figures.

I think that Mezco would be the company to show more interest in the 66 license since they have already produced and sold Classic Star Trek figures. They have recently announced a Dr. Zaius figure from the 68 Planet of the Apes movie as well. They have also already released a 60's version of Space Ghost in One:12 collective format which sold out as well.

Since they have announced 66 Batman in their 5 points line, it is possible (dependent on sales in this format) to try a one:12 collective version down the road. Recently their One:12 collective Batman 89 version sold out on the same day that it was announced so that shows promise for the 66 line. Time will tell.

I'm a TOS Trek fan but not an active collector of Trek stuff by any means, so I had to do a search and I must say, I dig what Mezco have done with the 1:12 range, I would love to see the '66 license get given this treatment. Even just a single wave with Batman, Robin and Batgirl would be awesome in this scale.

This is an example of Mezco's Space Ghost, the upcoming Dr. Zaius and 89 Batman in terms of production quality.

I missed out on the Mezco Trek figures, so if they get the license for the '66 show, I'll make sure not to make the same mistake.
