As yet another sign of Star Trek’s return to the mainstream, more and more companies are announcing exclusive Trek items for the San Diego Comic Con (July 23-26). Genki Wear, makers of Star Trek themed fragrances has a special Khan cologne, and Mattel introduces an exclusive USS Enterprise in Space Dock Hot Wheels edition. Trekmovie has all the details.
KHAAANN! Cologne – at SDCC (and online today only)
Genki Wear, whose previous Star Trek fragrances include Pon Farr, Tiberius, and Red Shirt, will be offering a cologne inspired by Khan Noonien Singh himself. With a tag line of "engineered to be superior," the cologne is limited to 500 bottles worldwide. Khaaann! cologne has a "clatter of citrus and bergamot" and "midnotes and vetlver." The main fragrance is "a smoky ambergris scent."
Fans who wish to smell superior can get their "Khaaann" by visiting the Genki Wear booth at SDCC (Booth 3149) where all four Star Trek fragrances can be sampled and purchased with the help of three lovely Starfleet officers dressed in TOS and ST09 Starfleet uniforms. Khaann! retails for $40. For those who KHAN’t attend the SDCC, Genki Wear is offering a "12 hour online sale" of the Khaann! cologne beginning today, July 17th, from 9AM to 9PM EDT at shop.genkiwear.com
Mattel SDCC Hot Wheels Exclusive
During the past few months, fans visiting Toys R Us or Targets may have noticed something special in the toy car aisles: Mattel has been releasing what they call "1:50" scale versions of various Star Trek ships. These are about 5" depending on the ship (wave one includes the USS Enterprise refit, USS Enterprise D, USS Reliant, and a Klingon Bird of Prey). Retailing for about $15, these are excellent for display.
At SDCC, Mattel will be selling an exclusive and limited "USS Enterprise NCC 1701 under construction in spacedock" version from Star Trek: The Motion Picture (which celebrates its 30th Anniversary this year). The item includes a spacedock section which doubles as a display for the famous starship.
You can pick up the Enterprise in spacedock SDCC exclusive at the Mattel Booth (#3029)
