Ha! That’s great!

2. Netranger - May 8, 2013

I am really disappointed that these are the only “toy” tie ins for the movie, what hoping for more die cast ships or at least more role playing items-

3. Jim - May 8, 2013

“Put your hands up”

“Ok ok their up…. AND NOW THERY’RE PUNCHING YOU!”

I have to admit I laughed, I could almost see Sterling Archer say that line.

4. Bob - May 8, 2013

Toys R Us has an exclusive Fighter Pods line

5. Vorus - May 8, 2013

Actually, that was pretty good. Some poking fun at Trek “Red alert! Shields up! Lens flare!”, and some poking fun at the fact that they’re blocks. The best part was when Kirk removed his helmet and had to put his hair back on.

If I had kids, I’d definitely buy these.

6. Steve Johnson - May 8, 2013

I wouldn’t mind seeing a lot more of that. That was very well done.

7. Khan was Framed! - May 8, 2013

I’m not sure if it’s the same in the movie, but that so called “bird of prey” looks more like a small fighter craft.

A “Bird of Prey” is a much larger scout class vessel, housing anywhere from 12-30 crew. I hope team JJ haven’t messed this up!

Is Hasbro planning to launch any decent toys for this movie?

Figures? Ships? GIJOE/Transformers cross-overs?

8. Nony - May 8, 2013

Dammit, Scotty, why didn’t you press the purple sticker.

9. Jason - May 8, 2013

THere’s not gonna be any regular action figures?

10. Johnny - May 8, 2013

Freakin Awesome! I wish the Kre-O Enterprise was based off of that design. I would actually pick it up.

11. Huong dan dang ky M88 - May 8, 2013

Attractive part of content. I just stumbled upon your website and in accession capital to claim
that I acquire actually loved account your blog posts.

Any way I’ll be subscribing to your augment or even I fulfillment you get entry to constantly fast.

@9 — I’m sure hoping there will be because I’m definitely not interested in any of this although the stop-action short was fun.

13. Bumhead Keeper - May 8, 2013

This alternate, alternate universe transmission from Talos 4, is better than the movie. Makes more sense too. :^) Kidding.

14. Aix - May 8, 2013

Great job!!!

15. AyanEva - May 8, 2013

I thought that short would be cheesy but I gotta admit, it was pretty awesome! Still doesn’t make me want to buy the toy but it was awesome.

16. Supreme Dork - May 8, 2013

This short should be shown in the cinemas before STID.

17. CmdrR - May 8, 2013

Blockness rules!

Love the hair gag and the one-liners.

18. Marja - May 9, 2013

This was actually quite funny, lots of in-jokes (“you’re disarmed!”) ! I almost didn’t watch it and I’m glad I did

(but I think Kre-O are just about the ugliest toys ever)

19. T'Cal - May 9, 2013

When was the last time you walked into a store of virtually any kind that had a toy section, even a small section, that didn’t have Star Wars toys? Convenience stores, department stores, electronic stores, CVS, Walgreens, not to mention Toys R Us, etc. The youth market is where TPTB have continued to drop the ball. Trek needs to be market so much better than it has been and it needs to be relatable to kids so that there is a next gen Trekker. Toys, collectables, action figures, better video games, animated tv shows and movies, etc. Why are they ignoring this huge $egment of the market??

20. David - May 10, 2013

Ditto comments on #2 and #19

21. The dude - May 10, 2013

Why do I suddenly want to but these lol!

22. Defiant - May 11, 2013

“Red alert, shields up, LENS FLARE!” LMFAO!!!!

23. Lexomatic - May 13, 2013

Yes, it was very amusing — but I’d like to note that the animation techniques and brick-life conceits (e.g., swapping hair) have been established in amateur films by LEGO fans over the past decade (see, e.g., brickfilms.com and bricksinmotion.com) and, to a lesser extent (by volume of output) in official shorts by the LEGO Company.

Speaking as someone who compares modular building systems, Hasbro’s KRE-O bricks are LEGO System-compatible and, in many cases, direct copies of recent specialized elements. The “Kreon” figure is more agile than the 1978 LEGO Minifigure, with ball-joint hips and shoulders, and a swiveling waist; with features (arm constrictions and ankle-holes) designed to accept accessories for the original Transformers-themed sets. The heads are compatible between the two styles, but do *not* put Kreon Megatron’s helmet on a LEGO head — it’ll stick. Tolerances on interlocking building bricks are *extremely* tight.
