A gimlet is a small drill with a spiral end. Also a running joke about dwarves (the species, not the medical condition) in the Terry Pratchett "Discworld" books.

Besides being a Starfleet

Besides being a Starfleet fan, you're also into Discworld?? You, sir, are a man of fine tastes! ;)

Anyway, this review--like most bootreg reviews--brings a smile to my face. Honestly though, it really makes me wanna track down the original DX toy!

"Yes, this is a bootleg, but

"Yes, this is a bootleg, but not of the DX."

I think that's incorrect--it appears to be an extremely down-sized knockoff of the DX.

I just bought something similar at Tuesday Morning. Based off of the same toy, same card, but 6 inches tall, not 7 inches. The individual components are almost WST size.

It's further simplified, with Drill Boy not having arms, McCrane not having the lion chest for normal Super Build Tiger, the gun not being able to separate, etc. And the quality is absolute crap.

But it's a tiny version of a big complex toy, so for $5, I'm satisfied :)
