The Star Trek x Kidrobot collection has recently been unveiled, and two of its standout items are inspired by the alien race Borg, which was first introduced in the Star Trek: The Next Generation series.
The two Borg-inspired Star Trek x Kidrobot plush toys are as follows:
Star Trek x Kidrobot Borg Cube Plush
This 13-inch Star Trek: The Next Generation Borg Cube Light-up Plush features LED lights that glow green when turned on, creating the perfect ambiance for assimilation. The top opens to reveal a hidden compartment inside for Locutus of Borg to sit. Priced at $16.99, the plush is now available for preorder on the Kidrobot website with shipping slated for the third quarter of the year.
In the Star Trek universe, a Borg cube is a type of starship used by the Borg Collective, whose ultimate goal is to achieve perfection by assimilating every group of humans it encounters. Described as mighty and omnipotent, Borg cubes are considered one of the most destructive weapons ever known.
Star Trek x Kidrobot Locutus of Borg Plush
The Star Trek: The Next Generation Locutus of Borg Phunny Plush measures 7.5 inches in the seated position. Like all items from Kidrobot’s Phunny plush line, this toy is made from premium plush materials and is softened to supreme huggability. A perfect companion piece to the Borg Cube Plush, this toy is now available for preorder on the Kidrobot website for $39.99 with shipping slated for the third quarter of the year.
In the Star Trek canon, Locutus of Borg was the Borg designation forced upon Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) after his assimilation in late 2366. Locutus of Borg served as a spokesman for the human race during the Borg’s attempt to assimilate Earth, so that the process would be as quick and efficient as possible, with the fewest number of casualties on both sides.
Fans who like to buy both the Borg Cube Plush and the Locutus of Borg Plush can save $6.99 by ordering a bundle of the two plush toys for just $49.99.
Other plush toys from the Star Trek x Kidrobot collection are based on the Star Trek characters Badgey, Gorn, Jean-Luc Picard, and Spock.
