Borg Cube, MIB, recently sold for $74.99 + free shipping after 1 bid.
 
This would have been crazy money a year ago, but I suspect that people watching the Picard show are thumbing through eBay on their phones and are finding that something like a Borg cube in that size was only made by Pmates, and a quarter century ago. So if they want something like that, to scale with some Micro Machines, their options are limited.
 
Having said that, do you think this cube will be opened, or left in box? Because if you wanted a loose cube, those are on offer like once every couple weeks or so.
 
Needless to say, this will be a hot item throughout the run of the Picard show.

USS Defiant, MIB, recent sold for $135.00 + $15.00 shipping after 1 bid.
 
This is a lot of dough for a boxed Defiant these days -- $150 at the door -- but if you want one in the box for some reason, like for an unboxing video or as a gift or something, you could still find them for a bit less.
 
Well sold. Which I will attribute to the Picard show once again.

Two Voyagers, two very different results. I'm not sure what happened with the higher result, but perhaps even the lower result was plenty of dough.

 

For some reason Voyager, along with the Defiant, remains in very high remand despite the fact that a fairly good number of them were made.

Enterprise E from Insurrection recently sold for $71.00 + $10.99 shipping after 20 bids.

 

This is about an average result for this day and age, and these remain in demand.

USS Defiant, MIB, recently sold for $117.50 + $10.99 after 21 bids.

 

This is slightly on the high side, but I can't call it crazy money because crazy money is around $200 these days.

It appears that someone paid ::sigh:: an absolute modern record for an MIB Borg Cube, with this example selling for $100.99 + $11.75 shipping after 4 bids.

 

Eagle-eyed readers may note that this example was numbered 000348, a fact which was hyped by the seller in the listing. Now, I'm a fan of low numbers and everything, but this is a lot of dough for an MIB item that probably will not be opened for like another 40 years. Low numbers among big ships rarely commanded a premium back in the day, and it's odd that they sometimes do today.

 

Perhaps this is the effect of the Picard show we're seeing. 

 

Well sold, as they say.

 

By the way: is it weird that the cube was not released for FC with just an updated box? Seems like it would have been a fish in a barrel, esp if the outside panels were updated with the FC cube design.

Agreed about it being odd they didn't re-release the Cube. Instead, they went for an all-new design with that slightly wonky Borg Sphere toy.

Yeah, the sphere was.... not great in terms of sales at the time, but they were quite limited in what they could plausibly do for the film. I always thought some kind of snap-together, disassembled cube with a sphere that could come out it might have done well, scaled roughly to starfleet Micro Machines ships, like the DS9 station, but even that sounded pricey.

 

The box art was a little dull too.

 

The one thing about the sphere that seemed good was the fact that it's about to scale with the E.

 

I still haven't bought a sphere & haven't seen an example of a loose one in real life. Like the Transporter playset, I always keep putting it off.

USS Voyager recently sold for $193.50 + $18.55 shipping after 18 bids.

 

This is where these have been regularly trading for the past decade or so. Still, the supply of MIB Voyagers is not really drying up after all that. Every month a couple or more go for $150-$220 pretty reliably.

 

Pretty average result these days really.

 

This one is numbered around 51000, so think about that volume, who bought these, where they went, and the remaining demand 25 years later. Also, this is a much greater span of time than from the original Star Wars vehicles to the market clamor for them in the late 1990s, for perspective.

USS Defiant recently sold for $76.00 + $20.00 shipping after 8 bids.

 

One of the lowest results for a boxed Defiant in recent years, and for you only have to look a some of the posts above. Demand for these remains high, just like with Voyager, and is showing no signs of dissipating.  

 

Well bought.

It probably wouldn't have been feasible at the time but I would have loved it if they did an Akira or any of the other new fed ships seen in the movie.

They needed to do an Enterprise-A first, hah! They kinda missed out on some painfully obvious crowd pleasers, that in retrospect seems like merchandising malpractice

 

Would love some large federation ships like the Akira, Nebula, Ambassador, Miranda, Oberth.
