Re: 2013 Star Trek HOT WHEELS - Excelsior, Kelvin, Vengeance, BoP

Finally got my Hot Wheels ships in the mail. I purchased all four:
- Kelvin
- STiD Klingon BoP
- Vengeance*
- Excelsior*

*Because the ships are not scaled to each other, the Vengeance is shorter but fatter than the earlier (2009) Hot Wheels Enterprise.

*Excelsior is off too. Longer than the TMP Enterprise refit (as it should be) but skinnier.

Both are nice representations, but the sizing issues prevent me from being able to display them in diorama form with their opposites. But then again, I had no problem doing so anyway with my Micro Machines starships from the '90s.

I wonder if Hot Wheels will make more series of ships soon, or if these are the last until the next Trek movie? If these turn out to be the last miniature starships by Hot Wheels until Trek 13, at least I'll have the Eaglemoss miniatures to tide me over.
