Project Cutaway Enteprise finally revealed, plus new Minimates, and, rocks...

A little over a year ago I reported on the first tantalising tease of a new cut-away model of the USS Enterprise coming from Dragon Models. Then we heard nothing, until now! StarTrek.com report Diamond Select Toys will apparently be releasing this impressive model, which looks like this:


The 18" pre-painted model is expected to retail for $174.99!

StarTrek.com have also revealed a new range of Star Trek Minimates! We already new the new Minimates styled USS Enterprise model was on the way, but now it seems that was just the start of a relaunch of the range which will see an impressively diverse range of Star Trek characters. Not just TOS, or even TNG, but also DS9 and Enterprise too! Including the first ever figure of a Xindi (who thought we'd ever see new Enterprise toys again!?). Star Trek Legacy Minimates series one will consist of the following two-packs:
  • Admiral Kirk and Khan, from The Wrath of Khan.
  • Captain Picard and the Borg Queen, from First Contact.
  • Captain Sisko (season seven) and Jem Hadar, from DS9.
  • Captain Archer and Xindi (Commander Dolim?), from Enterprise.

And finally, the latest innovative new product from DST is, a rock... I'll let StarTrek.com describe the "Star Trek Enterprise Rock Art":
Yes, this is exactly what it sounds like; a 5.5” rock slab has been painstakingly emblazoned with a full-color image of the Enterprise. The Rock Art is accompanied by a display stand for desktop or shelf display. It will cost $29.99.

Cutaway Enterprise? Awesome!!!

Minimates? Not my cup of Earl Grey, but I applaud the variety!

Erm... a rock. 2 out of 3 ain't bad!


That Sisko is more like season 4/5 with that uniform.
