New Trexels drinking vessels

Icup, makers of novelty kitchenalia, including a number of previous TOS themed releases, have expanded their Star Trek range with some new Trexels releases. The pixelated forms of Kirk and company can now be found on the side of a set of four twelve-ounce glasses:


And a landing party about to meet the Gorn also features on a plastic cup, which has a screw on top and reusable straw!


That's all for now, but I'm sure this isn't the last we've seen of the pixelated crew: The Trexels designs originated as a fan art project in 2010, before be picked up by CBS who have since applied it to more posters, lots of T-shirts, and various other products which have been coming out pretty regularly ever since (check out my first report on Trexels for a look at some of the other stuff). Rather pleasingly the concept came full circle a couple of years ago, and is now also a real video game, released as a mobile app.
