Re: Latest acquisition!

I'm not sure exactly when in 2013 this came out, but the omnibus of "Kevin Keller: Drive Me Crazy", featuring the George Takei guest appearance in issue #6 ("By George!" by Dan Parent) of this "Archie" spin-off, was available in a local comic store this week:

George Takei supplies an introduction. There are also three more non-George stories and bonus features.

The alternate covers (below) for the individual issues are included in the omnibus:

"Captain, the tricorder identifies the alien as a sitting duck."

"No Time Like the Past" by Greg Cox arrived Down Under on Tuesday! I collected my copy tonight from Galaxy Bookshop, Sydney.

Obi-Wan Kenobi mistook him for Darth Maul.

Deep foliage?

Or drunk. In Australia, a drunk person is often described as "legless". (Which causes some interesting comments about Legolas, too. The "party elf".)

This is the latest in the series of Diamond Select money boxes.

Re: Latest acquisition!

Spock's legs? Judging by the bloated yet satisfied expression on the duck's face, I imagine possibly it's eaten them. This might fit with the perturbed, slightly pained (meaning deep agony, because this is Spock), yet scientifically curious expression on Spock's face. And the tense, ready-for-action stance of the Andorian (Therin?), who is clearly reaching for his phaser.

"A strictly carnivorous duck. Fascinating..."

Then again, if I recall correctly, this duck was raised in a factory by alligators, yes? I imagine it's picked up some unusual habits.

Re: Latest acquisition!

Tonight, Galaxy in Sydney had the companion book/box for the Running Press "Light-up Phaser". This one is a light-up "Starship Enterprise" and features a model of the TOS ship on a stand, plus a miniature 32-page illustrated book by Chip Carter. It even references TAS's Robert April!

This looks really awesome with the lights on. I was very pleasantly surprised by how bright it is!

Re: Latest acquisition!

Lee Cole's awesome Star Trek TMP sticker book. The amount of thought that went into these background details is amazing.

(I'd love something similar for Into Darkness, after seeing all the Starfleet stickers they plastered over the NIF target chamber building to help transform it into the Enterprise's warp core on the BR extras... one can dream...)

Agree. I bought a few damaged copies quite cheaply in 1980, as spare stickers. (The heavy pages can pull out from the binding.) I put a large Starfleet Headquarters logo on the front door of my flat when I moved in 1984, as some Trek friends were congregating there to get dressed in costume for the ST III gala premiere night.

I moved out of that flat in 2000, but the sticker is still on the door. There have been four different long-term tenants (only one a Trek fan) since then, but the sticker was still there last time I visited.
