cool!

2. Silvereyes - March 1, 2012

I’m still looking for the “Fine” part…

3. Scott - March 1, 2012

Wow those are horrible. And the price!

4. njdss4 - March 1, 2012

“Fine” art? I respectfully disagree. Not to mention the prices are ridiculous.

5. MattR - March 1, 2012

These seem okay, but not like $325 okay (for the Gorn) and certainly not $515 worthy (for one of the larger Enterprise ones).

6. Jonboc - March 1, 2012

Dont care for these, looks like pages from a coloring book.

7. Trekboi - March 1, 2012

awesome lol

I have two original pieces of “fine art” hanging in my office. One, of the Enterprise flying through space with nebula, planet and comet, was done years ago by our then 12 yr. old son. The other, of Enterprise battling Klingons with nebula and planet but no comet, was done 14 yrs. later by the same son, who wanted me to trash/replace the first piece. Maybe I should sell them. They are certainly as well done as the above… :-)

@2 LOL

It’s a pity that these are such a clunky style. They all seem like they’re going to be. Acme Archives does lots of different styles with their Star Wars license, to appeal to all sorts of tastes. These guys are going to have to move beyond this if they want to do the same.

I’m not going to put this stuff down like some of you, but I have to agree it’s too cartoonish for my taste. It reminds me of the art and style of the video game “Borderlands” which I enjoy thoroughly, but is more appropriate for that kind of work. When it comes to Star Trek art, I generally prefer cleaner lines and a more polished look.

The poster of the Enterprise that looks like socialist art from the 30s and 40s was more my speed, in terms of a graphic art style.

12. Rob - March 1, 2012

Yikes! Everyone’s a critic…

13. Dave in RI - March 2, 2012

I think (mostly) everyone’s reaction would be far less harsh if these were advertized as regular posters rather than “fine art”, and if they were priced at say $29 instead of $160-$325+…

14. Raptor Jesus - March 2, 2012

12×30 is too small. 18×45 is too big. Both are way too expensive.

15. CmdrR - March 2, 2012

13 – I was gonna say something nice. Then I checked what I thought was a joke on your part.
You’re not frakkin’ kidding.
$335.

Um…. bye.

16. CmdrR - March 2, 2012

18″ x 45″ – $525.00*

not $335. $525. I’m so very sorry for my error.

17. jonsinfinity - March 2, 2012

@13 I agree…

I found that Charity Wood (the artist) is a co owner of Bye Bye Robot. That’s what happens when you let the artist set the prices. Seems like artist always overvalue their work.

I do think both the Enterprise prints are pretty cool though. Especially the one titled ‘NCC-1701′. Might be game on the 20×40 if it was about $300 cheaper.

I wonder how much they have to pay CBS for a license to do this.

18. Red Dead Ryan - March 2, 2012

UTTER CRAP!

19. Brady - March 2, 2012

Hmmm a Space Octopus? Really? You expect someone to walk up to the print, look at a Space Octopus, and think to themselves, “Man I love Star Trek” just out-of-the-blue? With how many decades of characters and scenes to pick from, and you draw a friggen Space Octopus? Holy crap man,

20. danielcraigsmywookiebitchnow - March 2, 2012

I keep trying to say remember “Art is in the eye of the beholder” without snickering while looking at these photos of these works of “Fine Art”

21. Aqua - March 2, 2012

Is the difference between art and fine art the consensus that fine art is crap?

22. Douglas - March 2, 2012

I’d like to add my voice to the others posting on this development. These depictions are really quite tacky. Most poster fold-outs from SciFi magazines are better. These are a bit of an embarrassment, even for a child’s room and the marketing strategy of high pricing does not work at all. Louis Vuitton can get away with the mystique of over pricing as a status symbol, but not this unfortunate merchandise.

23. Iowagirl - March 3, 2012

Love the Tribbles tryptich…

24. richpit - March 3, 2012

I don’t mean it as cruel as it sounds, but it looks like something a high school Trek fan might have drawn in the 1970′s on a book cover. Definitely not worth the prices they’re asking! crazy.

25. The Original Spock's Brain - March 3, 2012

@13 Good point.

26. Basement Blogger - March 3, 2012

I like the tribbles painting. Hey, who are the artists?

27. TrekTech - March 3, 2012

What a joke…

28. rogue_alice - March 16, 2012

#11? The “Boldy Go” series. I actually frame the best one and hung it in my bathroom. Anyone get the joke???

“I don’t mean it as cruel as it sounds, but it looks like something a high school Trek fan might have drawn in the 1970’s on a book cover. Definitely not worth the prices they’re asking! crazy.”

True.

Two months later, and there’s no buzz about this stuff, and it is not a surprise. Some defensive type might argue, “Oh, its just that Star Trtek is not that popular right now,” but that would be a smokescreen. The WORK–is inferior, and frankly, there’s too much ST merchandise out there, and most of it failing to tap into the most interested part of the fanbase.
