    I'm going to have to get one of those... an old Enterprise model got smashed by a clumsy electrician a while back and needs replacing :(.

    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.

    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.

    I like how posable it is on it's stand, never seen a Trek model do that.

    I don't like how the lights shine though the plastic in areas it shouldn't.

    Do the lights/sound effects have different modes?

    Is that how it came out of the box or was some assembly required?

    Nope.

    Actually yes. I do have an NX-01, new in the box.

    :lol: I know, what a worthless thing to keep fresh, but it was a gift intended as a "collectible" so I am obliged.

    Before Art Asylum took on the ST licence (for ENT and TOS), its sculptors were sculpting numerous figures for the last few waves of Playmates' previous 4.5" figures, such as Andorian w/ serape and Gorn, and 12" Ambassador Shras.

    Nope. It is purely Playmates. Art Asylum had nothing to do with the production of the toy (I visit there regularly).

    I myself would like to see what Diamond Select would do on this version of the Enterprise.

    First step, ALL LIGHTS ON mode!
