Diamond Select Reveals New Star Trek Toys at Toy Fair 2010 February 15, 2010

by John Tenuto , Filed under: Feature Films (TMP-NEM),TOS,Toys , trackback

Diamond Select Toys showed some of their planned Star Trek items for 2010 and 2011 at the New York Toy Fair this weekend. Reports coming from the show reveal a new ST: III new Klingon ship toy and disruptor, a Minimates vehicle, and new Retro-MEGO figures. More details and photos below 

 

New Star Trek toys coming from Diamond Select

New Ships & Props

As they did last year, Diamond Select is showing off a USS Enterprise NCC-1701 B, the latest in its line of Enterprise toy ships. But now they are showing a target date of November 2010 and a retail price of approximately $50. DST (and Art Asylum working in conjunction) have previously released the Enterprise in its NX-01, 1701, 1701 A, 1701 D, and mirror universe varieties. We should expect lights and sound effects on the Enterprise B, as with previous ships.

Also being shown at Toy Fair is a very detailed Klingon Bird of Prey from Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. The card accompanying this ship has no specific date except 2011 and has an approximately retail price of $50. This looks to be an excellent ship and would represent the first ever non-Enterprise ship from Diamond Select Toys.

Role playing is not forgotten. Recently, DST released their Star Trek: The Motion Picture phaser and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan phaser (both available at Entertainment Earth). At Toy Fair, they have shown a Klingon Disruptor from Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. Like the Bird of Prey, there is only a date of 2011 and a price of approximately $45 listed. When the disruptor is released, we could all have fun saying "Over there! All but Kirk!" Just watch out for those microrobes on the photon tube’s surface.

New Minimates & Mego

The Minimate line endures with another DST first. This December, fans could obtain a battle damaged Minimate Spock with a scaled Galileo Shuttlecraft! This is the first time a minimate sized ship is being offered and hopefully more items will continue to arrive in this popular format. The combo pack is $12.99

Megomuseum.com is reporting on four new 1970s retro styled action figures from DST and EMCE Toys. EMCE Toys has been making very faithful reproductions of the 1970s MEGO line of action figures and the USS Enterprise playset. In addition, they have been adding new figures previously unavailable in that original line, such as Sulu, Chekov, a redesigned Gorn, and Khan, yet styled to look as if they always belonged to the line. The new retro styled action figures for 2010 are Captain Pike, Salt Vampire, Vina, and Nurse Chapel. While no pictures are available yet, a photo of the Klingon disruptor has the Nurse Chapel action figure visible on the left (see below). EMCE Toys is also partnering with other companies to produce reproductions of the famous 1970s line of DC Comics World’s Greatest Super Heroes characters and new retro styled Twilight Zone action figures, including one of the "Gremlin" from William Shatner’s famous episode.

1. WVTreker - February 15, 2010

Cool! Gotta get some for the boys! (and me!!)

2. LCDR Arch - February 15, 2010

Hmmm….I don’t think my wife will believe me that my 2 daughters wanted that Klingon disruptor! Oh welll, I want the Klingon disruptor!

3. Jeyl - February 15, 2010

Bird of Prey looks to be interesting. As is the klingon disrupter!

4. S. John Ross - February 15, 2010

The minimate shuttle is cool :)

5. AstroSmurf - February 15, 2010

Those ships are awesome and both will be added to the collection. (I have always loved the Excelsior class.)

6. S Pinsent - February 15, 2010

The Enterprise B doesn’t have the proper Nacelle Caps. They had blue bussard collectors in the movie. That one has the Excelsior Rounded fronts.

7. Captain Rickover - February 15, 2010

# 5
Perhaps this means DST will release the Excelsior too and they just put parts from it’s prototype and parts form E-B prototype together for Toy Fair presentation. That would be great! I adore the Excelsior-design!

8. Captain Rickover - February 15, 2010

And before I forget:
This Bird of Prey looks great too! I love it already now. I hope there will be a version with little HMS BOUNTY letters on it’s belly :)

9. Razorgeist - February 15, 2010

The Enterprise-B wont be out til 2011! Oh come on thats gotta be a mistake.

10. Mantastic - February 15, 2010

November 2011? Really?

11. Tommunist - February 15, 2010

Enterprise B will be Nov 2010, according to the little sign front of the toy.

12. jonboc - February 15, 2010

When are they gonna get it that TOS sells? DST cancelled their Kruge figure line due to lack of interest while Kang is impossible to find, and when you DO find it, you can’t afford it! Yet, inexplicably, rather than a TOS era Klingon disruptor and battleship, (perfect companion pieces to the highly successful and wildly popular TOS phaser and Enterprise) they develop the ships and Klingon Tek from Trek 3. I give up.

The good news: I’ll be able to eventually pick them up cheap in the bargain bins.

13. Oregon Trek Geek - February 15, 2010

Hopefully they’ll fix the nacelles previously mentioned above, but even if they don’t, I’ll get the B model. I always loved the Excelsior class. I even liked the hull additions for the Enterprise B….

I also really liked the Ent B bridge in Generations….

14. ryanhuyton - February 15, 2010

#12 I have the feeling the Bird of Prey will be a hot seller. But I agree they should have released more Kang figures instead of limiting them to a few hundred.

And I can’t believe we have to wait til (late) 2011 for the Bird of Prey! I want it NOW!!

15. MikeTen - February 15, 2010

LCDR Arch, you can always ask for it for Father’s Day 2011, but then you will have to give your wife something nice for Mother’s Day ;)

That’s how I got the Enterprise-A last year.

16. Capt Brando - February 15, 2010

the wait for the E-D from AA was long…I don’t expect these to be out for at least 18 months from now, maybe longer

17. Will - February 15, 2010

Gotta save my pennies. Going to get one of each. My Wife got me the USS enterprise HD and I got hooked on these ships. Bird of prey looks great

18. Shunnabunich - February 15, 2010

I love how most of the photos have little “do not photograph” signs visible in them. :D

19. ryanhuyton - February 15, 2010

I have the Enterprise-D, Mirror Original Enterprise, Refit Enterprise, Enterprise-E, TMP and TOS phasers, TOS communicator, TOS science tricorder and a bunch of action figures.

The MIrror 1701 is cool because it has the Terran Empire symbol on the saucer and nacelles. AA/DS did a great job with the ships. The D is the best because of the saucer seperation. They did a great job with the refit in regards with the Aztec detailing. And the props are great as well.
Hopefully they reconsider releasing the Borg figures.

20. andrew - February 15, 2010

I don’t understand what takes so long. Telling me about some toy that I can buy in 2011 is like telling me about some burrito that I’ll have in July or a traffic jam in 2016. I don’t care.

21. RoobyDoo - February 15, 2010

Looking forward to the new ST Megos. EMCE is releasing some LOST figures in a similar style as well.

Here’s my modest collection:
http://collectingthefuture.blogspot.com/search/label/Mego

22. CarlG - February 15, 2010

Whatever happened to that model kit of the new Enterprise that was supposed to come out? It feels like that got announced ages ago, and then nothing happened.

23. Starfleet06 - February 15, 2010

Good eye #6. Hope they correct that oversight before production.

24. Psylent1 - February 15, 2010

Any word if there will be ships based off Star Trek Online?

And what happened to Mattel’s starships? They have disappeared from stores that were selling them.

25. Weerd1 - February 15, 2010

@24 I had to order the last one from Entertainment Earth. Ironically, it was the only one in the line FROM THE HORRIBLY UNDER MERCHANDISED NEW MOVIE!!!!!! You would think THAT’S the one they would have made sure was in stores…

26. Shatoupee - February 15, 2010

Where are the new (non-retro) action figures? None this year?

27. Mantastic - February 15, 2010

@11 Looks like they changed it. Before it said November 2011. That’s good.

28. Michael - February 15, 2010

I love the ships toys as much as the next fan, but why do they keep making new versions of the same things: 1701, 1701-A,B,D, etc. Why not an 1701-C toy in that $50 price range? Don’t tell me the fans wouldn’t buy it – it would be something new, it’s from a beloved episode, and there’s a big hole in the ship toyline to fill!

Also DST needs to make a NOMAD toy pronto. If they did it would be on every Star Trek fan’s desk (at work and at home). In over 40 years of toy production there’s never been a licensed Nomad toy, and that’s a pity (and it’d be from another well known/liked episode). Imagine one with lights and Vic Perrin’s booming voice coming from it. Heck, make it to scale with the Mego figures!

29. TonyD - February 15, 2010

Kind of disappointed by the Trek showings. Where’s the Reliant? or the D7? or the K-Tinga? How about the Vulcan Shuttle? or the Grisson? or the TMP communicator and tricorder to go with the phaser?

Instead we just get more stuff that’s already been done before. Bummer.

30. ryanhuyton - February 15, 2010

#28 Or how about the Botany Bay?

I too would like to see the Enterprise-C. A Captain Garret and Alternate Yar figure would be nice as well.

Other things I’d like DS/AA to produce:

TOS Romulan Bird-of-Prey, FC Borg Cube, DS9 Defiant, TMP/TOS Klingon Battlecruiser, Zefram Cochrane’s Phoenix, Reliant, Voyager and the Stargazer. Most of these are unlikely, but DS/AA did say they were considering the Reliant.

31. devon - February 15, 2010

Love the retro Nurse Chapel, but where’s Yeoman Rand???????

32. ryanhuyton - February 15, 2010

I also clicked on the link under the Bird-of-Prey photo. I saw the close-up of that ship and man, what a beauty!

33. Michael - February 15, 2010

I’m sorry but it all looks like PM and AA runoffs……nothing new or exciting here. *yawn*

34. Tommunist - February 15, 2010

I’m in for the Enterprise B (and maybe the Excelsior, if they do it). Not interested in non-Federation ships. Enterprise C, please!

I suppose the Kilngon Disruptor will make it ino my collection, but again, plenty of phasers and communicators and tricorders.

The other ships people list on their wishlists are highly unlikely, me thinks, based on comments from DST and Art Asylum in their Q&A blogs. That said, the Relaint should come out!

35. ryanhuyton - February 15, 2010

#34 DS/AA said they are doing an Excelsior as well as the Enterprise-B.
I would say that the Enterprise-B will have a wide-release ( Similar to regular D, E refit,etc) while the Excelsior will be an exclusive at one or two online sites ( Alt-D, battle damaged refit, E etc.).

36. Psylent1 - February 15, 2010

Wasn’t Polar Lights supposed to have released an USS Akira class model kit last year?

That is the ONE ship I really want to see in any form; Toy, model kit, Micro-machine, Furuta,….someone please make an Akira!

37. Jim Cude - February 15, 2010

Love the “No Pictures” signs everywhere- stick it. Why come to a convention with equipment if you don’t want someone to photograph it???

38. Zebonka - February 15, 2010

Come on guys! TOS disruptor please!?!?
It was not fun ordering resin parts and trying to paint them up …

39. Desstruxion - February 15, 2010

The Enterprise-B will be nice in my collection. Hasn’t the BOP been done to death. How many does anyone really need? How about a Stargazer or Equinox? What about Enterprise-C? How about a detailed Defiant (DS9) or a Galor class cruiser? The USS Raven was interesting. The Oberth has never been done in a toy/collectible format in that size that I know of. I’d buy em all if they’d just make em.

40. Entropy - February 15, 2010

“Over there, all but Kirk.”. EPIC EPIC WIN

41. Robert Cassidy - February 15, 2010

SO, what happened to the TWOK Communicator they showed off last year?

42. Capt. of the USS Anduril - February 15, 2010

Hmmmm….At first, I really wanted that Bird-Of-Prey, but on closer inspection, it seems as though the wings are fixed. Sorry, but pass.

The disruptor, which is NOT from Star Trek III but from TNG onwards(and maybe STVI), is a must have though. I had the old Playmates one a long time ago, and this looks to be a worthy successor.

43. Commodore Kor'Tar - February 15, 2010

The Klingon Bird of Prey and the Disruptor will make fine additions to my collection as will the Enterprise B and the Excelsior when they come out .

*saves shiney gold rocks left and right*

44. Mark Lynch - February 16, 2010

Personally, I’d like to see the tricorder and communicator from ST:TMP released by DS, Along with every phaser, communicator and tricorder incarnation through each and every original cast movie.

I already have the TMP phaser which is absolutely amazing. More than 30 years on and its design has not dated. Waiting for the TOS phaser and communicator from them too. Really looking forward to that.

45. Will - February 16, 2010

If you don’t know DST’s methods by now, here’s the way their release dates work. They set a release date, which is not real. They solicit orders from retailers, and will not go into production until they’ve reached a threshold from which they feel comfortable they’ll break even or possibly start to make some money.

Until they reach that threshold, the release date will be moved, and moved again, and moved again, until enough retailers have placed orders, or, until they decide to cancel the item.

Usually this process adds half a year to a year to the release date. So, November 2010 means late 2011, if past patterns continue.

46. captain_neill - February 16, 2010

I want the Bird of Prey, looks awesome.

47. Lost Forever - February 16, 2010

My biggest disappointment with regard to Trek ships has been the ever-delayed Nero’s NARADA. Will this ever see the light of day? Anyone have any recent (2010) info?

Im going to be saying “Over there, all but Kirk” for many, many days to come…

Also on the subject of merchandise, is there ever likely to be a blood orange (ST2009) Star Fleet academy jacket/suit available?

48. Holger - February 16, 2010

I want a realistic DST Galileo Shuttle, not that Minimates stuff!
The rest looks very good, I might get some.

49. COMPASSIONATE GOD - February 16, 2010

“48. Holger – February 16, 2010
I want a realistic DST Galileo Shuttle, not that Minimates stuff!
The rest looks very good, I might get some.”

Agreed! A scaled shuttle for the figures would be a must-have! One thing I would LOVE to see is a full-scale FX version of the “Where No Man Has Gone Before” phaser rifle! There’s never been a consumer-friendly, already-assembled replica before, and if produced in limited quantities (with Shatner signature on a display), it would likely be a success.

I’m pleased with the retro-MEGO figures, but i’m more concerned with the DST TOS figure line expanding. There are so many famous characters yet to be produced (just as famous as Kang or Kor in the grand scheme of things), and would be hot sellers. Imagine a 2-pack based on “A Private, Little War” (you can guess which figures would be in that one) or “City on the Edge of Forever” (Edith and 20th century Kirk). What about a scaled, FX Guardian limited release playset?!? Ideas, DST, ideas!

50. danno - February 16, 2010

Bird of Prey looks good, but fixed wings up and landing gear down, pass. Ent.-B taker, but I was more excited about having an excelsior than the Ent B. The Excelsior was smooth, sleek, looked bast. Then generations game along and someone said “Lets slap some fins and a hull flare on it!”

51. Dac - February 16, 2010

The geek in me can tell that Enterprise B has Excelsior nacelles on it still – The Ent B had extra fins on the front of the nacelles the Excelsior didnt have.

52. still...old...friend... - February 16, 2010

MORE MEGOs…er…retro cloth figures…
Maltz need :

Mr. Leslie (this is mutiny mister!,…yes, sir…)
Capt. John Christopher (i’ve never really believed in little green men)
Capt. Christopher Pike (now thats more like it, bartender)
Gary Mitchell (crush you all like insects!!!!)
Sarek (how do YOU vote?…Sarek of Vulcan???),
M-113 salt vampire (Leonard?!??!?…)

Oh, and while we’re at it, how about 2-packs of Kirk and Spock (Errand of Mercy disguise), Gary Seven & Roberta Lincoln, Number One and Yoeman Colt, Ruk & Andrea, and …

Giant multi figure gift sets: Spectre of the Gun Showdown: Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scotty, vs Wyatt, Virgil, Morgan Earp, and Doc Holliday!!

And the coup de gras: The Savage Curtain faceoff set: Kirk, Spock, Abe Lincoln, and Surak vs. Col. Green, Kahless, Zora, and Genghis Khan, WITH Yarnek (with light up action and voice sound bites!!!!!!)

53. THX-1138 of 9 - February 16, 2010

I have got so many of the AA/DST items that there is no way I’m not getting the B. Although I am worried about the discrepencies in it’s appearance. I remember opening up that Enterprise D and seeing that HORRID neck and getting no response from them on why it looks like such a fail. I don’t really have a desire to get the BOP as I have already built one that is more detailed than what they will produce. I’m waiting on the C to round out the collection.

The disruptor will look good next to the 2 TOS tricorders and 1 New Trek tricorder, the 2 TOS phasers, 1 TMP phaser, and 1 New Trek phaser, and 4 TOS communicators and 1 New Trek communicator on my shelf already.

As always, I wish AA/DST could secure licenses for the ships from the new BSG and for the old UFO series.

54. DS9 IN PRIME TIME - February 16, 2010

That disruptor looks awsome!

55. Constellation 1017 - February 16, 2010

All these hundreds upon hundreds of Star Trek figures released all these years & nobody has ever officially come out with a Commodore Matt Decker figure? WHY???

56. Anthony C - February 16, 2010

those nacelle caps are not cannon!

(wait… is it 2006 again?) haha

57. Desstruxion - February 16, 2010

Put the Abramsverse nacelles on the Excelsior!!!!

58. Scott B. here. - February 16, 2010

Re: #12 – jonboc – 100% agreed! If there are two slap-your-forehead props that have been shamefully ignored by toy makers for years, it’s the D7 battlecruiser and the TOS Klingon disruptor. More TOS toys, sez I.

Re: #20 – andrew – Thanks for the laugh! Have a burrito on me.

Scott B. out.

59. Imrahil - February 16, 2010

I’d also like a D-7. The playmates BOP was nice, but it really just convinced me that I don’t want a BOP in my collection.

I have the AA Enterprise hanging in my office; a D-7 would look nice across from it.

60. Holger - February 16, 2010

Yes, a D7! Definitely!

Maybe next year.

61. THX-1138 of 9 - February 16, 2010

#59

I’m curious as to how you hung it. Did you drill holes and attach eyelets or something of that nature? I have for years tried to hang various models of my TOS Enterprises without having to drill or disfigure them but have had no luck. That thing is so unbalanced it could only exist in space.

62. Scott B. here. - February 16, 2010

Re: #61 – I hung my Playmates Enterprise by running a nylon thread through the holes in whatever the teardrop shape is called on the top of the saucer section, and tying that end off. Then the other end of the thread I looped around the fantail. Find the balance point in the thread and hang it from a hook or eyelet screwed into the ceiling (or around the drop-ceiling frame, as I have in my basement studio).

With the DST Enterprise … you got me. Good luck.

Scott B. out.

63. Dr. Image - February 16, 2010

Always thought the Excelsior looked like a toilet with the lid down.
The E-B is somewhat more attractive- also, they changed the scale of it compared to the Exc., I think.
Now- bring on the Grissom!
AND a decent Galileo 7!
Figures? I want a Roger Korby complete with peeled back hand skin flap!

64. Scott B. here. - February 16, 2010

Re: #63 – What’s always been funny to me about the Excelsior is that it was originally supposed to be an ugly hunk of junk. Scotty had contempt for it. It was a giant punchline in TSFS. Even the name makes one think of packing material — throwaway fluff — as much as it does the New York state motto (or Stan Lee).

I know the ship has a lot of defenders, and I’m sure the designers thought they were making something that looked credible as the next starship design … but I’d bet that the design was also supposed to look ungainly, over-designed and homely when compared to the Enterprise.

Scott B. out.

65. gigshaft - February 16, 2010

Scott B: Actually, the designer said the intention of the producers was to make something that looked too “new” and a bit off-putting, so he went about designing something along the lines of “the Enterprise done by a Japanese electronics company.”

Personally, it’s the “off-putting” qualities that I like about it.

Oh, and forget the BOP… It’s D-7 all the way! The D-7 rocks! From this moment forward I’m lobbying for a D-7!

66. ryanhuyton - February 16, 2010

If you watch the making-of music special features on the Blu-Ray for the new movie, you’ll notice an AA/DS TWOK Enterprise hanging in the studio where the music is made and recorded.

67. boxker - February 16, 2010

Enterprise B! Man, I’d rather have the Excelsior. Why did they have to ruin it by putting that piece of junk around the secondary hull. Makes it look stupid, almost as if it was thrown on as an after thought.

68. David Stoeckel - February 16, 2010

What about Excelsior? They said they were going to do that ship? I’ve been wondering myself about the Mattel Star Trek Ships(I wish they would do more). One ship I would LOVE to See Them do is USS TITAN NCC-80102. It is COOL!!! I can’t wait for the Ent-B to hit stores, but I wish it didn’t take so long for it to hit stores(November?). I’m still kicking myself for not buying the All Good Things Ent-D when it was available. Oh, well…. I can only hope Diamond Select/Art Asylum will do more of them.

69. Imrahil - February 16, 2010

#61, 62:

I used fishing line (I was a bit worried at first that it was too thin and the E was too heavy and it would gouge lines into the ship, but it’s been fine). I looped some around the neck strut of the saucer, tied it off, and likewise around the pylons just below each nacelle. Then I anchored it at three points to screws with eyelets into the ceiling and one wall. Basically at random; I was pulling on the strings until I got a position I liked (there are two screws into the ceiling, and one into the wall). The Enterprise is now swooping down at me when I come into the office. :)

One thing I like about the DST version is that while it’s heavier than a styrene model, it’s also a lot sturdier. Those things are light but flimsy, and this thing survived intact a fall from the top of a 6 foot shelf (damn that stupid stand!). In fact, that’s why I decided to hang it instead.

70. Imrahil - February 16, 2010

Here she is: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3457/3806373615_84b728e0a8.jpg

Er, and here. :) http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2632/3807188500_1aa9af6c67_b.jpg

72. THX-1138 of 9 - February 16, 2010

#’s 62, 69, 70, and 71-

Nice. Thanks for the info. At this point, between my ship modeling and my ship collection, if I were to hang them I would have a tremendous traffic jam about 10 inches from the ceiling.

Imrahil, I had the same thing happen to my TOS Enterprise from AA/DST. It wasn’t the stand that failed though it was one of my kids bumping into the display rack where the ship sat at the top. Stand broke and the saucer and nacelles were wonky. I glued the stand back together and with some gentle convincing I got the ship straightened out. I have thought about getting the new remastered Enterprise from AA/DST but upon closer inspection the grid lines on the saucer don’t line up! And the yellow band of weathering on the saucer is just sort of a yellow strip. Pass.

73. THX-1138 of 9 - February 16, 2010

Here is the TOS E after the fall. Sort of a good angle for not noticing any wonkiness. Although the wonkiness is repaired:

Never mind. The links are the wonky thing. i’ll try some other time.

76. Will - February 16, 2010

THX, re “I remember opening up that Enterprise D and seeing that HORRID neck and getting no response from them on why it looks like such a fail.”

You didn’t get the decal sheets that they sent out to everyone when the neck of the ship turned out to be unfinished? They may not have emailed people individually but they handled the situation on their website (artasylum.com).

77. Scott B. here. - February 16, 2010

Re: #65- gigshaft – thanks for reminding me about that “Japanese electronics” line. Exactly! Also, I’m with you on the D-7 (in case you didn’t see my earlier post in support of it). A most neglected ship to be so important!

Re: #69 – Imrahil – Good job! Thanks for the pic. She looks lonely though — I think a Klingon battlecruiser would look GREAT squaring off against her. :-D

Scott B. out.

78. seanyboy - February 16, 2010

Is it just me or is the Klingon Bird of Prey really, really overdone. There is so many different versions from models to toys. I really wish they did a Klingon Ship that was not as replicated. The All Good Things Klingon Ship would have been really cool, as well as the old battlecruisers. I guess AA wants a sure fire seller, which I can’t blame them for.

All well. When I heard they were coming out with a Klingon ship, my first thought was the BOP, and I am a bit disappointed, but nevertheless, I will definitely order it.

The landing gear is an original idea so I guess they have that going for them.

79. seanyboy - February 16, 2010

#67…. in a way, as I am sure you are aware, the ugly fins on the front were a way to protect the original Excelsior. They added the fins in front because the producers of Generations knew they were going to blow a hole in the side of the ship, so without damaging the excelsior filming model, they threw those ugly things on to protect it.

80. Capt. of the USS Anduril - February 16, 2010

RE: BOP Landing Gear

For those complaining about the landing gear, they are optional. ;-) Take a look next to the stand. I still don’t like the fixed wings, and that’s not even landing mode.

#79 Ironically, though, a new Excelsior model was built for “Flashback” an episode of Voyager. They erred big time when they gave it glowing nacelles like the 24th century ships. In “Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country”, the Excelsior’s nacelles didn’t glow. Excelsior and Miranda class ships didn’t have glowing nacelles until around the time of the Dominion War.

82. James Cannon - Runcorn Trekkie UK - February 17, 2010

#79…. Agreed on the BOP. It HAS been done too many times.

I would like a Enterprise-C, a Reliant, a Kelvin and maybe a Grissom.

Alien wise, a D7 Klingon ship, maybe even a Ferengi maurauder… something that hasnt been done to death.

83. COMPASSIONATE GOD - February 17, 2010

#82:

A D7 would be fine, along with an FX K-7 Space Station. Imagine that.

Though I know the potential would be sort of limited, I would love to see the TOS pilot communicators released as FX props!!

84. Scott B. here. - February 17, 2010

RE: #83 – I agree. I’m surprised the Cage/WNMHGB communicator and laser/phaser haven’t been done by DST. I don’t think the communicator has ever been done as a consumer-priced toy. I’d love one.

Scott B. out.

No, I didn’t. And that is after many attempts to contact them. I guess I could try again.

86. Alex - February 17, 2010

DST just keeps getting better! Love the weathered look on the BOP and the chipped paint on the disruptor. And nice detail on the E-B. Looks like DST is finally listening to fans!

87. JYHASH - February 17, 2010

Seriously Guys? Do we NEED another frakking Klingon Disruptor?! How about a ROMULAN distruptor? Or a CARDASSIAN Phaser? Or Perhaps expand it a bit and give us some phaser rifles? Seriously, we already all have the Playmates versions of these props. Sure they’re not as Screen Accurate as the Art Asylum versions, but at least give something new and not a remake. That reminds me: HEY! JJ ABRAHMS! C’MERE YOU…

88. johnny b - February 17, 2010

I wonder what happen to the other Excelsior class and the larger klingon Vor’cha class? Are they still coming out with them.

89. doug_skywalker - February 18, 2010

An Enterprise-C would be awesome (could compliament my model of the same ship). But what about Constitution variants (Defiant, Constellation, Exeter, Excalibur)?

And forgive me for saying, but Grissom would be ‘meh’…how about a USS Pegasus instead?

And, oh yes, a USS Kelvin PLEASE…and maybe include exclusive Lt. Commander/’Captain’ George Kirk and/or Captain Robau…

90. Danno - February 18, 2010

@ #61
Most of the Enterprises I’ve seen hanging often use a “cradle” method. One string slug under the saucer, and one string per nacelle. Its definatly a method for a “low risk of bumpage” space.

91. ryanhuyton - February 18, 2010

I would like to see them do the prototype U.S.S Prometheus from “Message In A Bottle”. One ship seperating into three. Very cool. Very unlikely. One can dream though.

92. Matt S - February 18, 2010

Don’t get your hopes up for a Nov. release for the Enterprise-B. I’ve been collecting these ships for years and they’ve never come out on the release date. I don’t know why they even give one. Expect it around spring or summer of next year.
As for the BOP, they have done that to death. I wish they would do the Enterprise-C to finish off my Enterprise collection, then go on to another ship

93. Robert - February 27, 2010

so when will we see a 1/350 scale klingon k’tinga battle cruiser to go with enterprise A.

94. Robert - March 26, 2010

Where can i get a 1/350 scale Kingon K’tinga battlecruiser ? It would great with my U.S.S.. Enterprise A model that i have. Let me know.

95. REd dwarfer - May 10, 2010

I say let them take their time with the ships. I mean their last releases of the future and reg enterprise D had horrible quality control issues. I want the bird of prey to be decent and if it means I have to wait longer that’s fine.

96. David Pease - May 31, 2010

What would sell?? TOS is MUCH more in demand than the rest! Outsells TNG or any of the others.
Here’s my (for what it’s worth) suggestions:
TOS KLINGON DISRUPTOR AND COMM
TOS MCCOY MEDKIT (SCANNER, HYPOSPRAY, READER, POUCH, ECT)
U.S.S. RELIANT
ST3 PHASER
ST5-6 ASSAULT PHASER
ST3 KLINGON COMM
U.S.S EXCELSIOR (A NX VARIANT WOULD SELL ALSO AND EASY TO DO)
TOS KLINGON D7

AND FINALLY…. A TOS BRIDGE PLAYSET!!! THE TRANSPORTER WOULD BE A WISE DECISION ALSO!!!

I’m a huge fan of DST / AA star trek toys! Keep up the great stuff!!!!!!!

97. Robert - August 22, 2010

When is someone going to make a 1/350 scale k’tinga battlecruisr for us all to buy?

98. mark - August 28, 2010

Yeah they need to make a K’Tinga class D7 and the USS Reliant from Wrath Of Khan, seems it’s too much to ask almost…………….

99. Admiral DarkMan - October 27, 2010

When will the enterprise-b be out

100. Robert - November 8, 2010

Still looking for a 1/350 scale k’tinga battlecruiser model kit.

101. Robert - January 30, 2011

And still we sit and wait for new model kits to come out.

102. SometimesIhatestartrekfans - May 16, 2011

The ships look great! I don’t like the Mini Mates and think they’re hipster gimmicks, but I do like the Mini Mate shuttle-craft.

103. Robert Atherton - May 21, 2011

Woah! A Klingon Bird of Prey, with posable wings! DST has outdone themselves over and over again. I hope they’ll make and release other federation starships like the Stargazer or the Khan sabotaged Reliant. It would really be great if they could make some other alien ships.

105. Jimmy - July 13, 2011

Anyone want to bet that these ships never see the light of day?

106. M. Scott - August 14, 2011

I just read a Q&A on art asylums website not too long ago and someone asked him why it’s been two years since we’ve seen these ships. He said they are still going to do them because they are going to open a new factory. A question before that he answered that they only release two ships a year. They are releasing the AGT Enterprise-D and the Nemesis
Enterprise this year. I think they’re still doing them, but we probably won’t see them untill next year. It’s a shame because I really want the Enterprise-B now!!

107. jkno - September 17, 2011

Cannot wait to get that Klingon Bird of Prey. But seems it will take a looooooong time until released alas.

108. Robert - November 1, 2011

DST and Art Asylum have had nothing but problems releasing ships. Their 2011 ships have already missed several target dates and one of them isn’t even a new ship, just a re-release. And always they complain about how Trek doesn’t sell well, insinuating that if it did, they’d be more diligent with the line. In essence, they are blaming the fans for their ineptitude. Playmates did far better with the line (sales wise) and those were toys sold to kids at Toy’r'Us. The stuff these guys produce is generally quite a bit nicer (though you can tell when they get lazy. There is a reason they are redoing the Entreprise-E. The first one was totally wrong) but every year they seem to pull back on how many ships they produce and it is not very long before they are all sold out. The preorders for the Ent-E and Ent-D are already sold out places and some third party people are gauging the prices, and the ships aren’t even out, so don’t give me some line about them not selling well. It is an obvious lie. I have sent them two emails about updating the preorder date and they haven’t done that yet either. Just lazy, lazy, lazy.

109. Robert - November 18, 2011

Its the fourth quarter i’ve looked on bigbadtoystore.com to see if they’re out yet. Any word on when they’ll be available?

110. Andy - December 10, 2011

Diamond Select make great looking ships but their production lines and Distribution is rubbish, As soon as they release a ship it is sold out then after 8 months of waiting for the next lot they either sell out or stop making them, Also they say they are making new models yet after a year there’s nothing.
Bandai were not the best but at least they knew how to build a proper production line and distribution network, I only hope Bandai get the rights to make Star Trek models in the very near future!!!

111. Robert - February 16, 2012

I heard over on Facebook that the Klingon Bird of Prey is being produced as we speak and that they have a few minor things to do with the disruptor. As for the Excelsior and Ent-B I highly doubt we’ll ever see them. Which, to me (and probably others) is very dissapointing. I’ve never been good at building model kits that’s why usually buy the prebuilt DST version of the ships/items.
