QMx Mirror Tribbles

If you are not a Klingon, then tribbles are just adorable, cute and cuddly creatures that are hard to resist as pets, although you should keep them away from your food supply. But have you ever wondered what they are like in the Mirror Universe? Well the folks at QMx have answered that question with the introduction of the Mirror Universe Tribble. Due to arrive late August (which means any day now) these 3.5″ diameter collections of ‘fur and fangs’ sell for $9.95 at the QMx site  and at Entertainment Earth.

OK, those coasters are Spock-ian levels of cool.
The perfect gift for the alcoholic Trekkie in your life.

I’d probably buy (at least some) crates if I could see what was in them. Do a lot of people buy things blind like this? Makes me nervous it’d just be a bunch of stuff I’d hate.

Mystery boxes are pretty popular these days. Lootcrate has a whole bunch of different lines now. Funko has subscription boxes that are partially blind since they might reveal one or two things.

My oldest kiddo gets the Gotham themed ones, they have all have had pretty cool stuff in them.. enough so that I signed up for the Trek ones last week.

What division did you choose?

Gonna beam me up one of those sunshades. Love it.

Anovos- is a small company that takes on too many projects at once.. I have been waiting for them to have TOS pants in my size for two years. There are constant delays and tons of excuses.
Their costumes are purty, just don’t plan on getting them by their projected release date.

Customers have waited over a year for the star trek beyond costume, it has been pushed back twice . Booo I say BOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Mirror Tribbles? Okay, that’s just pretty darn funny!

Actually, it is stupid as hell. But that’s just my opinion, I could be wrong.

They should have little goatees.

Why Finnegan?

“Anovos has announced a new replica uniform for Star Trek: TNG fans, the Women’s Skant.”

The skant is unisex…

We know. However, that’s the way Anovos has positioned it.

By positioning it as a women’s skant, Anovos is less progressive than TNG was 30 years ago.

All due respect, that’s not really saying much considering the skants didn’t make it past the first season.

You live in the Era of Trump.

Mirror tribbles, scraping the bottom of the barrel there eh?

What are tribbles like in the mirror universe?
Well, still the same as our universe: pests.

Here’s something to think about: tribble hair isn’t really hair. Those are sensory tendrils. More specifically, taste tendrils. Do you still want to pet it? :-P

It not a TNG “women’s” skant. These were also worn by men in the first season of the show. One of the more progressive moves by Roddenberry in showing his utopian vision of the future. Gender is largely a silly social construct.

Gender may be a social construct, but breasts are a biological fact. ;)
The bottom part may be the same (because well, skirt is a skirt) – but the upper part for women differs substantially from the upper part for men, because they need to accommodate different dimensions in different spots. And since this is an one-piece clothing item, it obviously has to have a “men’s” and “women’s” variant. And this is the “women’s” variant – which should be pretty much obvious from the photo above.

(It works both ways: you wouldn’t fit the women’s variant, unless you have a really really narrow shoulders and waist. And even if you did, it would be unsightly loose over the chest. Because, whenever the progress tries to fight the laws of nature, the progress always loses. ;))


Re: …breasts are a biological fact. ;)

I believe it was while I was watching the YOU BET YOUR LIFE game show that Groucho Marx noted that male body builders are not as breastless as you suggest.

“Because, whenever the progress tries to fight the laws of nature, the progress always loses. ;)”

Considering the barbaric things considered a ‘law of nature’ over the course of human history I am eternally grateful that you are wrong.
