In May 2009 Mattel released their first wave of Star Trek Hot Wheel vehicles and back in January they released the second wave. Now the third wave with some repaints and some new ships (including the Narada) is available exclusively in Costco stores. Details below.
Star Trek Hot Wheels Wave 3 available at Costco in Mattel Fan Pack

The third wave is a welcome addition to this series. The first two waves of the Star Trek Hot Wheels die-cast ships were well made. The 7" scale is a good size to allow for interesting details, but they are not too big and can easily adorn your office or all be displayed on a single book case. The most exciting bit for this series is the inclusion of the Narada as this is the only Narada toy available (Playmates never made one) and one of the few 2009 Star Trek movie items available this year.
