    I wonder if it's the one with the big star as it's logo. I used to work at the nearest one to me, although now it's a bit of a trek to get there. It may be beyond my means to pick up.

    I hope so. Then too, I can see some exec saying
    "That won't sell in the US, all I see are Marvel and Star Wars stuff on the shelves."

    Chicken--egg.

    I think I need to write a scholarly white paper on which is harder:

    A.)--Getting [Please keep political topics unrelated to Star Trek out of this forum, along with political swipes of any kind. It's really not that hard to do. - M'] to support the Space Launch System--or
    B.)--Getting toy/merch execs to do spacecraft replicas.

    They all need to be chained to the flame deflector under Pad-39B

    I may get a t-shirt and a poster. Definitely will pick up a couple of Funko's, but those aren't listed.

    I like the Mondo pint glass. I just don't know if I like it enough to see the movie at an Alamo Drafthouse, even though there's one not far from me. It doesn't seem like my idea of movie-going. But that's just me. The concept is obviously popular.

    The Enterprise and Yorktown print is sweet.

    That's almost as nice to look at as the Nacelles Monthly cover.

    (Sigh) - mostly printed decorations...

    Wasn't this movie supposed to be a big deal?- like something released on the fiftieth anniversary or something?

    The rebooted Ghostbusters seems to have more (and better) merchandising

    Much of it sitting on clearance shelves from what I hear. The problem is that the market for toys and models isn't what it use to be.

    Plus, Playmates bungled the 2009 line so badly that the retailers are so afraid of ST toys that even Hasbro couldn't interest them in anything for STID other than the Kreo sets and those little rubber toys.

    The action figures, props and play sets were atrocious. The only toy of value to come out of the 2009 movie was the Enterprise.

    I think if Hasbro truly wanted to do more with Trek than just Kre-O, they would have. Retailers would probably have been more open to a full Trek toyline from a big company like Hasbro.

    Hasbro had the master toy license, which had to have cost them a pretty penny. It seems odd that they'd just half-ass it, so I can only assume that once they'd done the marketing inquiries, etc. they simply found out that none of their customers had little interest in Star Trek movie toys.
