Lights and sounds on DST's new starships

Diamond Select Toys have posted lots of videos demonstrating the lights and sounds on the latest additions to their Star Trek starship model range, the USS Enterprise-B, and Klingon Bird of Prey. Here is a video of each demonstrating the light and sound effects:




And here is another video of the BoP showing how the wings click into place (this one was done with an unpainted prototype). I'm a little disappointed the wings don't somehow move in tandem, but at least the click and hold at the right angles.



They've posted several other videos showing more or less the same things; if you want to watch them all, head to the DST YouTube channel.

The BoP is expected this month (November). Pre-orders: Amazon.com, Things From Another World, Entertainment Earth, Forbidden Planet.

The Enterprise-B is due in January. Pre-orders: Things From Another World, Entertainment Earth, Forbidden Planet.

In a recent Q and A they confirmed there are plans for a USS Excelsior variant too. They also noted the release date for the Enterprise-E, which is meant to be the first ship in a series of re-releases of all the previous DST starships, has shifted once again; with it now expected late this year or maybe even early next.
