    Star Trek Ships

    A pic of the new Hot Wheels packaging for their 1:50 scale Star Trek ships: http://us.st12.yimg.com/us.st.yimg.c..._2044_19359809

    Cool!

    I'm looking forward to Diamond's Enterprise D hitting soon.

    That doesn't look so bad, but I'm guessing it's fairly small based on the ridges inside the tray.

    Thanks for the pic, Blue... I'm still liking the ship design and its karaoke microphone engines. I'm guessing these'll be Furuta-sized... a wee bit bigger than JL. Paint looks good to me...

    Trek ship pics

    Found a few higher rez pics of the new HW ships:

    Looks like they're doing some repaints, too... I've seen a "battle-damaged" 1701A and BOP, and the USS Saratoga's listed.

    A few other Trek ship products... check out the "Romulan Narada" ship! WTF!?!?!

    Looks like a peacock got caught in a mulching lawn mower!

    Hmm, I wonder which Saratoga. There's the Saratoga in TVH that is a Miranda-class with the "roll-bar" (as people tend to call it) like the Reliant, and then there's Sisko's Saratoga that had no bar.

    I have to say, I'm liking the look of the ships as well as the stands. Granted, for a thin ship the stands look a bit overbearing and ugly, but they look like they'll be just as sturdy several decades later as they were fresh out of the package. I'm just going to hold off excitement until we get ships some unique ships instead of the same old stuff.

    Plus, I'm a bit ticked that it's yet another Klingon Bird of Prey that can't raise it's bloody wings. Did Galoob find the ONLY person that ever thought of including this feature? Granted, it was on their second go at a K-BoP, but it's such an entertaining feature that it really should have been standard after that.

    Thanks for the pics. Kinda standard toyetics on the HW pieces, sculpt and deco, but not shabby (unless they're over $6). The stands are way too big, that's so true.


    Peacock caught in a mulcher, great way to look at it. Seems like another extension of the Nemesis aesthetic - crappy.

    Galoob Ferengi Battleship prototype

    This looks kewl but the starting bid's $350 on eBay.... puh-leeze.

    Galoob Star Trek "FERENGI" Battleship Prototype. Size is 6 inches long. This prototype was shown at the New York Toy Fair in 1989 and was also pictured in the 1989 Galoob Catalog. Toy Fair showroom photos can be provided upon request to authenticate this prototype. There is a minor damage to one decal, as shown in one of the photos, otherwise this beauty is in excellent condition. This is a rare item. A SIMILAR PIECE WAS PREVIOUSLY SOLD IN 1998 for $749. The Blister Card shown in the photo is INCLUDED in this auction. The Blister Card is a first-run print and the rear of the card is blank. This prototype is hand-made of cold cast resin using rubber molds, and hand-painted in fine detail. Prototypes are fragile and should be handled with care. The decals (if any) are extremely delicate. Some decals (INTs) are made of wax base and can easily be rubbed off. Prototypes should NOT be handled with dirty, wet or hot hands. Great collector's item

    Looks like a legit and nicely done Marauder to me... nicer than Furuta's... shame it never made it to production. Didn't realise it was an "enemy starship" 'til now... quake with fear, puny earthlings.

    It's just not in my operating budget for this month... whoever paid $749 is gonna be so ****ed...

    Interesting find. It's a very good sculpt, but VERY handmade even in the tight lines. I actually remember seeing it in the catalog, but the small shot made it look less... um, bad. The price isn't unreasonable, I guess, but no way I'd be spending anything approaching that price for it. And it's SO easy to fake.
