Boldy going where no Minimate has gone before …
Ahead of the release of Star Trek 2 (or Star Trek 12 if you’re keeping “trek” old school), Diamond Select Toys has released this sweet Minimates version of the Starship Enterprise with Captain Kirk in the center seat. How cool is this?
A Diamond Select Release! Designed and Sculpted by Art Asylum! Star Trek Minimates return! After a long absence, DST is bringing back Trek Minimates with their most spectacular Minimates vehicle yet — the starship Enterprise!
The ten inch Enterprise, designed by Art Asylum, features the bridge and a special “Jeffries Tube,” which runs down to the engine room. The Enterprise is the flagship for the relaunching of Star Trek Minimates. It features an exclusive, collectible Captain Kirk Minimate as the first figure in the new set.
The Enterprise and Captain Kirk set costs $24.99 ($5 off the list price of $29.99) from Big Bad Toy Store, and is available for pre-order only with a scheduled delivery date of this December. That means you can have it for your favorite trekkie in time for Christmas.
The new Star Trek film by JJ Abrams and starring Chris Pine, Zachry Quinto and Karl Urban is scheduled to be released in the Spring of 2013.
Get em while they’re hot!
