SDCC 2010 Exclusive Starfleet IWG Figures by Rocket World

We’re still almost two months away from San Diego Comic-Con 2010, and already Rocket World has unveiled what might prove to be The Blot’s favorite SDCC exclusive, Starfleet IWG! Rocket World’s I.W.G. (Insurgents Wilderness Gruppo) have officially joined Starfleet with this officially licensed project from CBS/Paramount Studios. Starfleet IWG takes IWG animals and re-imagines them as characters from Star Trek: The Original Series.

Starfleet IWG includes three characters, Lt. Commander Hannibal, Capt. Titus and Commander Affonso, each of which comes with accurately reproduced Star Trek TOS accessories. Those accessories include a cloth uniform, a Tribble, a Phaser, a Communicator and a Tricorder. Starfleet IWG is a serialized edition, with each figure being limited to just 300 pieces.

Rocket World was founded in 2001 by artist and designer Patrick York Ma. Melding his love for animals, character design and underscored by his dissatisfaction with the current natural world order, Rocket World burst onto the nascent collectable “designer vinyl” scene in 2002 with the I.W.G. The I.W.G. are a feisty and rebellious underground group of self-aware animals who were given sentience by a group of mysterious alien beings. The I.W.G. have organized and taken up arms to fight against any humans that have killed, exploited their kind and/or polluted their habitats. The I.W.G. are cute yet decidedly deadly, and their narrative can be described as Che meets Animal Farm with a dash of pulp science fiction thrown in for good measure.
