Our third and final article covering Toy Fair 2018 in New York City looks at the latest Star Trek products that were on display from Gentle Giant, The Coop, NJ Croce, and a new game announced by Looney Labs.
Gentle Giant unveils ‘Discovery’ Fleet Flyers
Gentle Giant Toys unveiled their first ‘Fleet Flyer’ small-sized plastic models of ships from Star Trek: Discovery. Each ship is sculpted using digital models from Discovery and even though they are priced at only $7.99, they offer a lot of detail. Each ship comes with an articulated arm stand and suction cup so they can be attached to any smooth, flat surface. The first series is planned for this fall and will feature five ships from Discovery’s first season: USS Discovery, USS Shenzhou, USS Europa, Vulcan Shuttle and USS Clarke.
