U.S.S. Enterprise

I own a small toy store in

I own a small toy store in Chicago and I had one hell of a time selling the "new" Enterprise. The fans really thought the ship got short changed by Playmates and a lot of them quoted some of the same flaws you pointed out. I personally will wait till Diamond Select Toys gets it and gives it a proper treatment.
On a side note, I do have to say, I burst out laughing when Kirk says "Give 'em everything we got!" and the toy makes 3 little phaser noises! If thats all they got, they better turn around and stay home!

I didn't want to promote

I didn't want to promote another company's work in-review, but I agree with you 100%.

I recently discovered DST, and was thoroughly impressed with their various Enterprises, especially the -A, -D, and TOS. So, if you hear about DST making a remake Enterprise (I haven't, cause I'm new to them), go for it! I would certainly consider getting a DST remake since it would presumably be about the same size as this one- 14".

. . .

Well, don't forget that he intentionally held back the photon torpedoes in that finale, so it wasn't really "'everything we've got'".

. . .

Oh, speaking of which, in the video I pointed it out with subtitles, but I don't think it was enough to really drive my point home:

When Red Alert sounds, those LEDs flash on-and-off so rapidly and brightly that I feel like they're gonna make me have a photosensitive seizure or something! (The camera- which can only shoot a maximum of 20fps at the largest video resolution- was incapable of tracking the rapid blinking, so it just blurs a little.)

Nice review, I'm sure if a another "New" Trek movie is made there will be more high end collectibles made. Also the Bussard collectors are pronounced "bee-u-sard" and not buzzard, now if you'll excuse me I need to wash my Starfleet uniform and practice my Klingon lol.

Um... I never said

Um... I never said Bussard with a "Z"-sound.

I do still plan to get the Starfleet Phaser, but at this point that will be the only other "Star Trek" toy I have a mind to get, since figures aren't my thing. If they were to make a Shuttlecraft... I might change my mind.
