Do I! I still have a vivid memory of getting a head lump when my toddler threw just the saucer section at me one time.aackbar01 said:Do any of you remember the older Playmates Die-Cast 1701-D?? THAT one was SOLID.
darthMagnus I love your retarded monkeys comment!darthMagnus said:So I noticed the other day that Hot Wheels has taken their star trek page down off their main website. I have a sinking feeling that this means the line is about over. Not that this is too surprising. We have repeatedly mentioned that it seems to have been handled by a bunch of retarded monkeys. The writing has been on the wall for a while I think. Everyone should snap up anything left and hope that we actually do see the new Enterprise and Narada before the hammer falls.
Nope, that's the only one I've gotten so far. I was underwhelmed.Darth_Morpheus said:Have you collected all the Hot Wheels ships? You mentioned that you now have the Comic Con exclusive. I didn't notice any of the other Hot Wheels versions in the pictures. Maybe because they are bigger.
I like the drydock case and the idea of showing the ship under refit, but it's not very well executed, really. Much less accurate and detailed than many of the others. The wonky angle of the saucer is hard to miss, too! I display it with the drydock shell closed so it actually looks pretty cool in there. But still, I was thinking of putting a blinking Hallmark Enterprise into the drydock instead... that would look even better.Darth_Morpheus said:Do you think the Comic Con was worth it now that you have it? I'm still contemplating purchasing that one.
I don't think so... same QC issues with the ship, from the pics I've seen. The box might be fixed, though!Darth_Morpheus said:Also I noticed that some of the new Hot Wheels wave 3 ships are up for sell on ebay. There are 3 battle damaged ships and an Enterprise A refit. I wonder if that one is different from the mislabeled refit that has been out for awhile?
I really like the smaller ships (JL, Furuta scale) best but I recognize how insanely prices have spiked recently... luckily, most of my ships were $4 each when I got 'em.Darth_Morpheus said:One last question since I'm full of them today, if you were to choose one line of Trek ships to collect which one would you choose or which one is the best to focus on?
No worries!Darth_Morpheus said:Thanks for posting all those pictures DD.
The Hallmarks are really nice... they got me into ship collecting in the first place!darthMagnus said:I'm really liking all the hallmark ones. It's kind of sad that they have done a better spread of ships than anyone save for Furuta. Now if they would just put out a 4th set...since the last was quite mediocre.
I'll grab the Enterprise XI and the Saratoga, if they ever come out. Maybe the Bounty, if the paint improves. How about you guys?darthMagnus said:Is anyone actually going to get the newer HW models now that Playmates is putting out ones from the new movie?
That would be awesome!darthMagnus said:If you want I can take some pics to show the differences. It might help your decision to buy.
