USS Defiant in the SDCC interphase

Diamond Select Toys have announced their San Diego Comic Con exclusives, which include a new variant in their range of model starships. Available in an edition of two-hundred at the convention in July will be the USS Defiant NCC-1764, made in a translucent green plastic to give Defiant an otherworldly look as if it is in the interphase, from The Tholian Web.

Like the previous convention exclusive cloaked Klingon bird of prey, this particular edition will not feature the electronic light and sound features from the standard USS Enterprise model (as you'd be able to see all the wires). More after the jump:

Images via ToyArk, which I think it's safe to assume do not represent the final product; the graphics appear to have been added after, and hopefully wont be so wonky on the real ones!

This isn't an entirely new idea, there have been at least two other USS Defiants issued, and both the previous versions went with a glow in the dark effect. Those were limited edition Hallmark Keepsake decoration, and an AMT model kit.
