Once again, Diamond Select Toys goes with a variant of a previously released ship for their Comic-Con exclusive. This time it is a “Cloaked edition” of the Romulan Bird of Prey.

Think Geek Phaser-controlled Rock Mood Light

The creative people at Think Geek have come up with something different with the Star Trek Phaser controlled Rock Mood Light. This item “faithfully reproduces Sulu’s Alfa 177 planetary experience,” when he had to use his phaser to heat up a rock to survive the freezing cold. By firing a replica Type-1 phaser at the rock, you can “access a whole spectrum of relaxing atmospheric settings and provide an ambient glow in numerous colors.” The Mood Light will be available at booth #3349 for $70 (limited to one per customer).

I really dig the M’Ress, Arex, and Saru pieces. Everything else ranges from #meh to #areyoukiddingme.

James

In terms of quality,it’s the usual tat. The exception for me is the Saru bust, which looks decent

JRT!

Tehy’re event items,not exclusives. The second they’re available,officially,outside of the con they loose the right to be called exclusives. It’s all in the name,lol! I like’em though,and might even try to get them while there. Also like the BoP.

JRT!

Oooops,I meant THEY’re of course,not tehy. Thought there was an edit here at one point?! lol!

Way to go, Diamond Select. You can’t get the Reliant or TNG phaser released, but you can sure release a “repaint” of an existing ship. Either piss or get off the pot!

Benjamin Adams

And it just looks stupid, since the “invisible” look means you can see the interior seams and pegs of the model.

CmdrR

An empty box would be more screen accurate. It really does look awful.

DSTZach

I don’t think anyone would pay us for an empty box.

Fasafan

Yes! This! WTH!?

DSTZach

By definition, a repaint is much easier to produce, as the sculpt does not need to be modified and approved, the sounds do not need to be isolated and approved, the lighting and electrical components are absent, and the price of producing such an item is already established, thereby avoiding a complicated cost analysis. The Reliant and the Phaser are still working through their own issues (both are with the factory now), but you’ll see new Trek items at SDCC — maybe even a ship! No plans to get off the pot, if by “pot” you mean high-quality Star Trek products.

Boris govnic

Just so you know eaglemoss is going to release their large version of the Reliant before DST does; how many years did it take you to do a cost analysis to figure out everyone wants the darn reliant? I’ve seen the movie twice in movie theaters I’ve actually made the effort to do so. If by cost analysis you mean how many repaints can we do well yes it’s a fact you won’t be able to repaint the Reliant and call it some other canon ship and frankly you’re frustrating your customer base and losing credibility. Take that back to ground Chuck.

I actually have an older one of those ‘cloaked’ Romulan ships around here somewhere…

I'm Dead Jim

You’ll probably find it as it’s about to fire on you. ;)

Haha! 😎👉👉

Captain Dunsel

Is Binney & Smith EVER going to get around to releasing an Odo figure?

aceman67

Instead of a romulan ship, how about you give us the Enterprise C so I can complete my collection, Diamond Select?

DSTZach

It’s certainly possible! Not as a limited con exclusive, though. Production run on a new ship starts in the tens of thousands.
