The F-Toys Confect Co. Ltd. is a manufacturing company headquartered in Osaka, Japan which was established by Toyohiko Furuta in 2001, following his retirement from Furuta.

Like Furuta, the company is widely known as a "gashapon" or "candy-toy" producer that has marketed many lines of figures and models over the years. F-Toys has produced many licensed products from entertainment properties such as Star Wars and Thunderbirds.

Star Trek releases Edit

F-Toys manufactured pre-painted ABS miniatures of Star Trek starships as the "Star Trek Fleet Collection 1" and the "Star Trek Starfleet Collection". They were retailed in Japan by Platz as licensed "blind box" gashapon product lines in 2008, 2010, and 2016.

The ships were designed for F-Toys by FineMolds, a renowned Japanese modeling company, and were packaged with adjustable, individually-labeled stands. Typically, a small amount of assembly was required.

These models were produced in 1:2500 scale, excepting the USS Enterprise-D which was scaled at 1:5000 and the Into Darkness USS Enterprise which was scaled at 1:6200.

Star Trek Fleet Collection 1 Edit

Released in November 2008

Limited Edition ISS Enterprise Edit

Limited quantities of the Terran Empire version of the ship seen in Mirror, Mirror were retailed by Platz at the Wonder Festival 2010 convention in Tokyo and through their online store.[1]

Released on 25 July 2010

Star Trek Starfleet Collection Edit

This set was a modified re-release ("reboot") of 2008's Star Trek Fleet Collection 1 where the USS Enterprise (refit) was replaced by the 2013 version of the alternate reality's USS Enterprise. A "secret" ship was not included with this set and the 2016 version of the Enterprise NX-01 did not have painted panel lines or windows.

Released in October 2016
