#84190 NX-01 Re-Release

Wonder why it changed.  It is correct on my first run, non-HD version.

The more they overthink the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain.

Not to nit pick, but the running lights on TOS Enterprise are incorrect.  Green should be on the starboard/right side, red should be on the port/left side.  BUT, this is a definite buy for me!  All in!

Apparently, this has been floating around for a while, but its the first time I've seen it.  Whatever it is, please wish it into the Delta Quadrant.

#76842 Hallmark Star Trek Debuts TODAY!

Posted by 2thGuy on 14 July 2014 - 09:11 PM

I might be interested in the USS Vengeance, but I'm not sure.  The dioramas don't usually do much for me.  


I don't think the Hallmark ornaments are as cool as they used to be.  Maybe it's just me.  Plus, they're so pricey these days!  $34 for a ship ornament? Wow.


I'm kind of a completionist.  Once I had the first ST ornament (1991 TOS Enterprise 1701), the Hallmark ornament debut weekend became a tradition for me, as is the day after Christmas when I double or triple up on the Star Trek stuff at 50% off.  When you think about it, the Hallmark offerings are just about the only ST merchandise that you can find in wide retail release.  Seeing it online is one thing.  Holding, touching and then buying in real time is something significantly more fulfilling for me.  Yeah, the ornaments are a bit pricey, but given the lack of anything else Star Trek currently available in the retail world, I'll take it.

It was a great Star Trek merchandise weekend for me!  First, got all of the ST Hallmark offerings for this year, including the limited edition Vina.  This morning stumbled upon 5 of the 6 Star Trek Hot Wheels pop culture vehicles at my local Target.  After the frustration of being shut out of most of the Into Darkness offerings, today, I'm a happy guy.

Whatever your religious affiliation may be, Merry Christmas everyone!   For me, this site is a small oasis of daily joy in a sometimes chaotic world. Thank you to everyone who helps enable my obsession.  Best wishes, health, and happiness in the New Year.   



#73196 Mattel Hot Wheels Star Trek Revived

Posted by 2thGuy on 05 December 2013 - 04:42 PM

I think that this may also signal the end of ANY future Star Trek merchandise coming from mainstream toy companies.  If Mattel can't make this work..........However, perhaps the Trek universe is better served by the "boutique" toy companies that focus on quality, and market to the hardcore collectors, rather than the mass market.   This I can tell you, I was totally disappointed about the lack of Trek product during this past movie cycle.

Cool!  Mine should be arriving in a couple of days!!  Might be reason for a Trek movie marathon at my house this weekend!  

#71850 What would you like to see in Star Trek 3? (13)

Posted by 2thGuy on 30 August 2013 - 03:50 PM

I, for one, am very appreciative of the work done by Abams, Kurtzman, Orci, Lindelof, et al.  They took a moribund/dead movie franchise and resurrected it for another generation, ESPECIALLY overseas.  That much said, I'm looking forward to new leadership that will take us, and the series, into the undiscovered country.
