"Star Trek: Insurrection" by Playmates Toys

Once bitten, twice shy...what happens when you're bit a second time?  For their Generations line, Playmates was burned by producing figures in uniforms designed for the film at the time the figures needed to be sculpted, but were tossed by the time of filming.  For their First Contact line, they erroneously thought that a new, six-inch scale would make the line more dynamic and appealing.  So, when the third of the Next Generation movies went into production, someone decided to just stick with producing Collector Series figures.  To their credit, the line was well produced.  Still, one wishes Playmates had managed to issue 4.5" scale figures of the movie properties with the same attention to articulation and sculpting that they brought to the TV series characters.
