    I actually think the vengeance is okay for a bad guy ship, it looks like something you'd see the mirror universe terran empire build.

    I have to admit from the top view though it looks like you could open a giant beer bottle with the Vengeance though.

    Vengeance looks ok-ish from certain angles. From behind it's horrible with those paper thin, horribly design nacelle struts.

    That Revell model looks really great! And I regret not getting the Hot Wheels Abrams Enterprise when I had the chance... Oh well, I still have the one from Playmates plus the props which were all pretty decent :-) Too bad Playmates aren't doing something similar for Into Darkness...

    In some shots, that Klingon BOP remembers A LOT a Jem Hadar bug.... I believe that is clearlly visible that inspiration was taekn from Jem Hadar....

    The Hot Wheels Ships are Showing up on Amazon now, I'm gonna hold off on ordering and keep checking with my local Toys R Us first, If they don't have anything after a couple of weeks, I'll prob. Jump on amazon, I MUST have a Kelvin.

    Forty dollars for the Vengeance seems a bit steep.

    Worse case scenario, I order them from walmart or toys r us.com, my local Toys r us may not carry them, they have the Kre-o's which are not selling well according to the employee I spoke with, and he said some of the Trek 2009 stuff sat on the shelf for 2 years before it was practically given away. So I'm starting to wonder if these will pop up in many brick and mortar retailers.

    The Kre-Os have been selling decently at my local TRU (both the deluxe Enterprise and the smaller version actually can't stay in stock for very long). The other stuff, though, is doing fair to meh.

    I got the Fighter Pods Enterprise for my son and the Kreo Klingon Bird-of-Prey for me the other day at the local TRU.

    My son loves the Enterprise and keeps eying my Kreo set. :lol:

    These have cropped on my eBay suggested items thingy.

    Look pretty sweet. I have this image of the new 2013 edition however with no bussard detail. Hmmm. Anyway, this is the image on my eBay list.

    If anyone has one is this the final version. I'm checking all my local toy shops but I'm not holding on to hope ill find one so it may be an Internet jobbie.

    Is love a kelvin and nuEnt in 1:500 scale. So awesome. I'm still working on my PL Refit, been on that for 4years on and off inbetween two house moves.

    I've been to several stores looking for the mini hot wheels model with no luck. Retail on it is $0.99, but resellers are making nearly $10 due to its limited availability in most markets.

    It's mixed in with all the other toy cars.

    I actually found one of those at a Kroger of all places, I want an extra one so I can face it off against my soon to be purchased u.s.s. vengeance.

    Ha haaa. I live in the UK so my nearest Kroger is approx 4,000 miles away.

    Yeah, I had to google Kroger. :lol:

    Basically our equivalent is a Tesco or Asda supermarket.

    I will keep an eye out. I found Hotwheels KITT, BTTF DeLorean, Batmobile, ecto1 and oddly, the mars curiosity rover, which is pretty neat, all in a supermarket. Fingers crossed they will turn up.

    Lol. well, in all honesty, I think I found the one Enterprise that all the Ebay and Amazon scalpers happened to miss. Still have yet to even see a mars rover or an ecto one.
