Today we pick back up with our Spring Collection Preview of Trek Collectibles, with some big news, and by big we mean literally huge. After 42 years, it isn’t very often that a product appears that is completely unique to Star Trek. Luckily, CBS Paramount has partnering with some interesting companies this year, one of which is RoomMates which has a line of amazing Star Trek wall decor items. TrekMovie has all the exclusive details.
RoomMates brings Trek decorations for all kinds of fans (and rooms)
RoomMates is the largest manufacturer of decorative peel-and-stick products in the world (a division of the venerable York Wall Coverings company) and their first wave of Star Trek products, based on the classic Original Series, represents a diversity of products meant for all kinds of fans and types of room.
XL Wall Murals
Have you ever wanted to turn your hobby or entertainment room into the bridge of the USS Enterprise? Now is your chance! RoomMates is making available a choice of XL (very XL!) wall murals. Their first wall mural turns your room into the bridge of the USS Enterprise. The mural comes in two sizes: The full wall sized (9 feet by 15 feet) retailing for $249, and for rooms that have a ‘chair rail’ there is a 6 foot by 10 foot version (selling for $149).
If you don’t want to redo a whole room, RoomMates also has a "Peel and Stick Wall Set" of stickers. This set includes 4 10"x18" sheets containing 31 design elements from the original Star Trek, including characters, the Enterprise, emblems, tricorders, and popular quotes (such as "Live Long and Prosper"). These are perfect for painted walls, but can also be applied to furniture, automobiles, lockers, glass tiles, and computers because they remove without residue or paper backing sticking. They can be used again and again as needed. The set of four sheets retails for $12.99.
Giant sized stickers
RoomMates are also releasing ‘giant’ 5 foot stickers of TOS era Kirk, Spock, and McCoy. These will be more stylized (and akin to TAS) than the wall mural and wall stickers. Each will include a couple of smaller stickers. The sets will retail for $21.99 each. For this set, the designs have not been finalized, but RoomMates provided us with their latest working version.
The A-Peal of RoomMates
Star Trek fans are, as we all know, a diverse crowd. What is nice about a line like RoomMates is that it appeals to various kinds of fans, and have so many different uses from decoration to craftwork. RoomMates is offering products for fans of the various versions of Trek, and offer products that can be used to decorate entertainment rooms, hobby rooms, garages, offices, or even electronics like computers. RoomMates has licensees for big franchises such as Marvel, DC Comics, Transformers, and Disney, so it is also nice to see Star Trek joining good company.
