Marauder Mo action figures

Marauder Mo was a 24th century Ferengi action figure for male Ferengi children. One of the accessories available was an energy whip.

Quark owned several Marauder Mo figures as a child, and they were later considered valuable collectibles. However, Ishka noted that their value would have been much higher if Quark had left the figures in their original packaging. (DS9: "Ferengi Love Songs")

Background information

Marauder Mo action figures

Marauder Mo was originally mentioned in Ira Steven Behr and Robert Hewitt Wolfe's novel Legends of the Ferengi. Behr commented, "The Marauder Mo, Quark's boyhood toy, came directly out of the book." (AOL chat, 1997) Ishka's admonishing remark to Quark about not saving the action figures in their original packaging was a gentle in-joke dig at Behr, who was an avid collector of action figures and felt it was vitally important for his figures to remain unopened, so that their commercial value wouldn't decrease. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion (p. 446))

The Marauder Mo action figures were designed by John Eaves. He drew a concept sketch of the figures, dated January 1997. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion (p. 446)) Eaves named the figures "Slug the Looser", "Lorg Lattinum" and "Braq the Big Spender". (Deep Space Nine Sketchbook: John Eaves, DS9 Season 5 DVD special features) He also made a box full of the action figures, which turned out to be very popular with the members of DS9's production staff, including Laura Richarz. "They were so cool, everybody wanted one," she concluded. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion (p. 446))

The DS9 eBook Rules of Accusation mentions another figure in the Marauder Mo line, Dilb the Destitute.
