    I really wanted to track down the WOK figures in person just to tempt me to get them, but it never happened - I saw Bones & Scotty figs but the rest were no-shows and it kept the cash in my wallet.

    Rick is a great fan, all-around-nice-person, and an astute businessman. NewForce is usually located somewhere off the main beaten pathways at Comic Con.
    IMO, that is a HUGE mistake at a show like this because he has something most other etailers at that level can't compete with - a reputation for integrity to this specific brand. He should have been representing better than that, he's a good guy and deserves more eyes on the booth than what he ended up with.

    I didn't see him this year myself due to lack of time and not feeling well enough to go early than nearly 5pm on Saturday, but then I'm making a concerted effort to buy less and less stuff now due to lack of space to keep it all in.
    That's the other thing, the exhibitor hall was open 10am to 7pm yet it still seemed like nobody had time to track his booth down, that's a real shame but it does have something to do with his lack of promotions and his booth location.

    I had a great idea for another 2-pack. Captain Kirk and Picard from "Generations." Picard wearing the DS9/Vgr uniform and older Kirk in Captain's Vest. I'd be all over this. A 3-pack with Dr. Soran would be sweet too!

    Yeah that would be nice, plus a USS Excelsior toy along with USS Reliant. I don't know if anyone wants a 1701-C toy, I wouldn't mind it but I'm not hurting for one. 1701-D would be cool at least that would light up properly unlike the playmates 1992 version. The only thing DST dropped the ball with ship wise was 1701-E's non illuminated warp grilles.

    Uggh. I so want to hear about more figures:

    What about WOK Spock and Uhura? Saavik? Any of Khan's people?

    What will happen with future waves of DS9 figures? Kira? Dukat? Garak? Weyoun? The Founder? Martok? The Breen? QUARK???

    Seriously put blinking lights on it too. Light up the warp engines all parts of them that normally light up. Along with the deflector dish impulse engine and blue arboretum garden windows in the back of the saucer. Use the garden light source to illuminate translucent windows. The light on the bridge module blinks every second or so. My imagination is way too expensive for any toy company.

    I love this quote! I may have to borrow it for a future signature line with credit to James of course.

    A soooo very true quote. If DST really wanted to I'm sure they could find an inexpensive way to make these ships as realistic as possible, window lights running lights etc.

    What's going on with the WOK Enterprise? I preordered it expecting it to ship back in July, here we are almost halfway into August and still no word.

    I'd love an Excelsior and Reliant in scale to the AA/DST Constitution class. I'd like an Ent-C but like you said, it's not really high on my list. The D would be nice to get, but I think it's time to figure out a way to do saucer-separation right - we don't desperately need more lights in the saucer, the only thing that lights there are various windows which they can't do and the observation deck behind the bridge and the secondary deflector array on the underside. But we do need light-up deflector and engines, and blinking running lights on the aft.
