HotWheels makes Star Trek ships now?!?

Post by Tailhappy on Sun Nov 03, 2013 7:24 pm

And of all the places I find one, it's at the grocery store.



The funny thing is, I've been looking at HotWheels a lot lately, a lot more than usual, and have never seen a ship, but apparently they've been making these since May, and the ships from Into Darkness too.

Wasn't even trying to find one at Pick N Save, just happened to notice the one row display they had, and two Enterprises were hanging from it.

Most of the latest Hot Wheels have been pretty lame in my opinion. I havent bought any in a while.

I just put them in shoe boxes and stick them in my closet. Every so often I take them out and look at them. They're cool, they're just miniature model cars.

I'd say I probably have about 4-500 of them. All in mint condition. I never buy any of the goofy ones though, only the more realistic ones.

That's cool. There are definitely way sillier things to collect. Do you still have a lot of the bigger models?

You mean like the 1:18 scales? No, I gave most of them away. They were taking up too much room.

I sold a lot of my little and big toy cars to buy a real one. Also video games and whatnot. I may be growing up. But I will still drop a buck or two on something like this, because.... its a buck.

Yeah it's the "refit" that they flew in the movies. Not quite the A, but it had a different deflector, engine nacelles, and bridge.

I remember when Micro Machines had Star Trek models (at about the scale of the HW model above, not teeny-tiny). They were plastic, but they were pretty well-detailed.

Yeah I had a set of TNG ships. They had little stands too, and yeah... very detailed for as small as they were. The Enterprise D even had a removable saucer section.
