    Ah, I completely forgot about the Innerspace line! I had (and still have) the Cardassian ship that comes with Odo and Dukat figures. (At least I think it's supposed to be Dukat.) Pretty cool what they were able to do at that tiny scale. And I love that they included little gimmicks in their models, like the viewscreen image that can be rotated with a dial on the underside of the model.

    EDIT: Correct me if I'm wrong, but we never did see the actual bridge of a Galor class ship on any of the shows, did we? I mean apart from the limited view in those viewscreen shots.

    I never had the Cardassian ship! My holy grail was the Defiant, but I could never find it. :sigh:

    The innerspace toys were cool. I had the Stargazer, the Hood, the Bird of Prey and the Galor class.

    I had the Phaser, Enterprise D, Romulan Warbird, Borg Cube, TNG Shuttlecraft and the NASA Apollo command module.

    I don’t think I had the Cardassian ship but I can’t remember for sure.

    Why do you all say "had"? What did you do with it?
    I only watched TOS for the first time in 2015, and I bought the shuttlecraft. I would buy more but this is the only TOS thing sadly.

    I'm having a hard time to photograph the Playmates figures because of the plastic shine. What was the thing again that I should spray them with and where can I get it?

    The Apollo ones are pretty accurate, not distorted like the others.

    Loving all the Innerspace chat ;)

    I only bought the first four models they released. I was having a hard enough time finding all the 4.5” figures, plus all the ships and accessories. I couldn’t afford to start another line!

    BTW I’ve just reviewed the first series of TNG figures on my Instagram page: https://instagram.com/p/CCoeAVkl706/

    Argh, now that I've seen these custom accessories, I'm compelled to buy some for my Trek figures. :p

    There are still some biobeds available, but you should not wait too long. When the bridge chairs got up, they sold out within 45 minutes. You should follow their Facebook or Instagram to get notified when there will be more.

    There are also many accessories for the other ship classes.

    I recently found my old Playmates Enterprise-D. I would love to display it in my office for the nostalgia factor, but I kinda want to refurbish it with a paint job and what not. However, I was wondering how I could get new stickers for it. I found a site, Sticker Fixer, that used to sell them, but they no longer have them in stock.

    Any thoughts on how were I could get a new set of Enterprise-D stickers or if there is a model out there that is comparable in size that I could use the decals from (maybe try to get a set from the company).

    The Playmates D was the beginning of my collection - a damn fine model for the early 90s!

    If you can find a scan of the stickers you could probably get it printed. Alternatively I think the AMT kit is a similar scale, so would probably do.
