Captain Kirk

And so do we. From Trekmovie:

"Diamond T has announced in their ‘E Spectrum’ online newsletter the its first exclusive for Toys R’ Us is none other than an Admiral Kirk ‘Khaaaannnn!’ 7" action figure. The action figure commemorates the iconic moment when Kirk "doesn’t mince words" and "expresses his true feelings" about Khan from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Star Trek toys are already starting to show up at TRU, and the Kirk exclusive will be available soon.

William Shatner’s famous vocal oscillation has been featured on licensed t-shirts, however this is the first time the outburst has been rendered as an action figure. Star Trek II actually did not have any figures around its release, although Playmates did put out a Saavik and Khan in the 1990s and in 2007 DST started offering a whole set of figures and toys to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. The line includes some exclusive and limited items, such as Captain Clarke Terrell and Genesis Radiation Khan action figures. Now, frustrated Kirk joins the line."
