This thread is like porn for Star Trek fans. Love it, your collections are amazing
The Kirk and Spock shrine.
Methinks the shrine needs a thorough dusting...
No one else has a collection they want to post?
I love seeing what other people have and feel worthy of collecting.
And it allows me to show my wife that I'm not the only one with a
large Trek collection! ;-)
Don't throw it out. You've got a second childhood coming (trust me!) and he'll be really pissed if he found out you got rid of it!
I appreciate the enthusiasm; however, having just turned 57, I am beginning to believe that even my 2nd childhood is now behind me!
I got rid of a lot of stuff, but kept many books. I recently got some models, including one of my beloved Enterprise-C. Im so out of touch I didnt know the C even had a model for it.
Here's some of the newer stuff but I havent arranged it all yet, and there's no way Im pulling all my books out of the shelf for a pic.
How about some Franklin Mint pewter Enterprises, + 30th Anniversary Hallmark Enterprise
and didn't everone buy the Trek Barbie and Ken set? (got this one as a gift)
(I guess they flipped Kirk/Shatner's head around to match Ken's hair part)
and one of my biggest regrets is NOT buying one or more of these in 1991. The first Hallmark in this series, I remember seeing them and not getting one! The have and are going for $200-300
I still have it, and put it on the tree every year. The box is a little worse for wear, but the ornament is in great shape. I also have Spock, Data, Riker, Sisko, and Picard.
How about some digital Trek stuff!
I don't have too much aside from the DVDs and box sets - although I've inherited a fair few books from my dad. Shatner and Nimoy autobiographies, TNG book about the bloopers and so on (can't recall fully as I haven't seen it for years!) and a great TOS anthology paperback. Must have been released in the early 90s as it had segments on all the films up to TFF.
Probably a pretty well known one to you lot, not sure of the title. Man, I loved that book. Had a picture of the cast from the 60s on the Enterprise bridge on the back. Think it may have had Kirk and Spock on the front.

Clockwise, from top: A "United Federation of Planets" beanie bear; "The Penetrator" glow-in-the-dark starship condom and hexagonal box; a zombies "Star Trek" patch; "Star Wrek" VHS candy; and (centre) the Kraft "marshmelon" dispenser and plastic cutlery from "Star Trek V: The Final Frontier".

Customs - Star Trek action figures by Therin of Andor, on Flickr
Depicted here are some of my one-off customs: Trader Worf from "Deep Space Nine: Trials and Tribble-ations"; alien crewmembers M'ress and Arex from Filmation's "Star Trek: The Animated Series"; the Rhaandarite bridge ensign from "Star Trek: The Motion Picture"; Tuvix, from the "Voyager" episode of the same name; and Doctor Selar from "The Next Generation: The Schizoid Man", made by customising the head of one of Suzie Plakson's other characters, the Klingon K'Ehleyr, and attaching it to Doctor Crusher's body, which gives Selar the uncanny visage of the actress who portrayed her.
The large Andorian Starfleet officer was created by combining elements of two Funko "Wacky Wobbler Bobble-Heads".
The boxed "Captain Janeway figure as seen in the 'Voyager' episode, 'Flashback'" is a licensed Playmates figure, made as an exclusive for New Force Comics. Ian won a listserv competition with his design. The brief was for contestants to suggest a figure that would be popular enough to attract lots of online buyers, but could be assembled by Playmates using all pre-existing parts. This figure uses the head of the regular Janeway figure on Saavik's body.
Colorforms Star Trek set by Therin of Andor, on Flickr
This popular cartoon-creation playset is dated 1975. As per the era, the play pieces were printed on pieces of blue, red, yellow and white vinyl. Some pieces were lost by the previous owner. Kirk, Spock, Uhura and a distant transporting crewman are included. (Like the Mego action figure playset, there's a transporter on the bridge.) Alien heads supplied are Dr Sevrin the Tiburonian (whose hippy-clothed torso is also present), either Lal or Thann the Vian, and the false-Balok puppet head.

Tribble by Therin of Andor, on Flickr
Screen-used tribble prop from the 1960s "Star Trek" episode, "The Trouble With Tribbles" by David Gerrold. This is supposedly the last of its kind, found in the back of a drawer in David Gerrold's garage in 2002, and he wrote a letter of provenance for it! Over 500 prop tribbles were made. Tan tribbles like this have a unique two-toned fur due to being dyed darker with toothbrushes after each unit was made.
Famous Faces Spock mug by Therin of Andor, on Flickr
I missed my chance to pick up the dog calendar for 2011 that featured the "Star Trek" Spock caricature on its cover last year (I held out for a reduced price as the year raced towards December, but they quickly sold out), but today I found several of the canine images... as mugs - and cheaper than the original calendar. From Takkoda (UK).
Salt Vampire by Therin of Andor, on Flickr
My retro Mego-style Salt Vampire from the "Star Trek" episode, "The Man Trap".
Spock's indispensible marshmellow dispenser! That takes me back.
I'd love to tell you all about the original set of Spock ears from TOS I have and one of Shatner's uniform shirts. I'd like to, but I can't since I don't have either of them.
Mostly, I have some books that have already been featured, some die cast ships from Mattel, and a shoebox full of Micromachines. Also, many of the film soundtracks, and a copy of the Bible from pre-pilot of TNG. A few other assorted toys, and a uniform shirt in the First Contact style.
It really is cool seeing stuff that I used to have in some of other people's photos. Most notably, the Spock model with him squaring off against the 3-headed snake. I didn't paint mine, so it didn't look as good as in the photo here, but it still brings back memories.
LAFA your collection is absolutely phenomenal!
Loving all the model kits you've made.
How about Aenar antennae?

I'd resent those antenae if I didn't think you really did deserve them.
Posted this in the thread about uniforms. But here's my uniforms:
Starfleet Uniforms by Clark "Kal-El" Kent, on Flickr
The regular duty uniform is the high-end, screen-accurate replica from Anovos.
While the wrap is a fairly good replica made by a costumer — the braid and insignia aren't as screen accurate.
Those look amazing. Thanks for posting it.
