Re: Toys out early!

I was at both my "local" TRU stores today. One had only the Enterprise and the other had only the Transporter Room playset. I didn't see any comms, trics or phasers yet.

Re: Toys out early!

The Toys R Us website lists all the new film toys as coming soon, and offers a pre-order option.

Oooh, groovy lights on that thing! I gotta say, it doesn't look half as bad as the Playmates publicity shots made it look.

Forbidden Planet have the Enterprise available to pre-order. Apparently it's out at the end of April.
There are some payment security concerns with FPI

Re: Toys out early!

I got the Enterprise phaser communicator and tricoder. I did this in te hope that it would help and make me like the production design of this movie better. The toys are all done very well! I have to say that! We did a comparison with TOS Enterprise. the refit, both from DST, and this new Enterprise from playmates. THis was not comparing the toys but the actual designs of each ship. Hands down TOS and the refit are just much better looking from every angle. THe problem with JJ's Enterprise is clearly that the warp engines are way to close together! If they had placed them where they should be placed this new Enterprise would look OK! The phaser, comm and tricoder well they all are ok. I would probably gone in a different direction with the phaser in itys design! The ship is my major problem!

Re: Toys out early!

I gotta say I'm kinda impressed with what Playmates has done with the Enterprise. Yeah, its got a few classic Playmates design problems (screws not hidden, some parts appear bulky, etc.) but the lighting is pretty impressive (minus the light bleed.) Did anyone notice that the nacelles are pushed forward a little more than on the actual model/ship in the film? Makes the whole thing look more compressed. Wonder why they did that.

Re: Toys out early!

Cant wait to pick this up, although it suffers the same light bleeding problem Art Asylum's NX-01 had. Although chances are this ship was made by Art Asylum and Playmates just stuck their name on it.
