^In the film, we saw when the Vengeance first dropped out of warp, shutters close over the deflector dish. It's there, just protected when not in use

Finally found the Enterprise from the Hot Wheels Imagination line at a local CVS Pharmacy. Cute little ship for a $1.50.

The deflector has its own deflector?

I had to order mine. It looks in scale with the Vengence.

I wish they made the series a bit larger. You have the best aft view of Vengence.

The Klingon ship reminds me of The Betty from Alien 4

On a related note, CultTVMan just had the Revell J.J.Prise available to order over the weekend. Their shipment sold out in 3 hours!

I've not seen anyone with the completed model yet other than the one we've already seen when it was announced... It sure is one great looking model...

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

Hey Peeps!

My USS Kelvin has shipped from BBTS (Yay!). Should be arriving in the next week or two.

Also - managed to score a USS Vengeance from an online trader (which should be arriving any day now - so excited!!!).

...and, managed to find a HW Enterprise (regular HW green card) at retail!!!

Very happy with all these HWs beauties - can't wait for the larger diecast starships to arrive... and I'm absolutely hoping that HWs have more Trek starships up their sleeve, in coming waves.

Here's what I'd like to see in upcoming waves:
-Re-release of TOS Enterprise
-Re-release of NX-01
-STiD refit-Enterprise
-With a few add-ons, the Excelsior re-released as Enterprise-B

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

I missed out on the earlier Hot Wheels runs. But I wasn't "hot" on them anyways, since I like the Diamond Select size ships. That said, I am awaiting my shipment of the new case from Entertainment Earth. I really wanted the Kelvin and Vengeance!

I also plan on ordering the Eaglemoss subscription. The paint detailing looks great, and this is the only way I'm gonna get certain ships. I've always just been a "starfleet ship" guy, but some of the alien ships proposed might be cool!

Incidentally, Eaglemoss got permission from CBS to do "nuTrek" ships; looks like they will be "specials" in addition to the main line, perhaps subscription only.

Either way, it's a lot of money. And who knows if they'll reach their proposed 70 ship plan!

^^^ I'd be up for all of those! A refit Enterprise would also be a nice variant.

Add to this, an Enterprise C, all the Trek XI federations ships seen (Armstrong, Mayflower, etc...) and the three-nacelled Excelsior (red starship, seen at Spacedock in STID) - and I would be a very happy collector!



PS: My HW USS kelvin arrived yesterday!!! And it's a beautiful as I hoped it would be...

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.

Get the Hot Wheels Imagination Series Enterprise. It's the perfect scale for the Vengeance.
