    Art Asylum has the Reliant out as well, or will I hope.
    Hot Wheels had one

    That's been a work-in-progress for about a decade. I don't think it's coming any time soon. They still haven't released the Enterprise-C!

    Houston, we have a problem...
    I'm not sure they still have a license. They haven't said anything about any Star Trek products in quite some time...

    Art Asylum was bought out by Diamond Select Toys years ago.

    They do still have the licence. They brought out a couple of Kelvin Kirk and Spock figures last year, as well as the gold Enterprise-C as a convention exclusive.

    I think they reissued the Enterprise-A recently as well.

    DST has always drip-fed this stuff because they struggle to get retailer support. Worth noting that McFarlane brought out a couple of Kirk and Picard figures a while back, and then nothing else followed, despite them making a bit of a fanfare about getting the licence and promising Burnham and Spock next.

    I think the market for Trek collectibles is just really small these days.

    They need an Internet billionaire to prop them up.

    I'm sorry to go on a tangent of my own, but personally I'm not convinced that pinning a thread makes people use it more. The ol' “Can I suggest an Art Contest?” thread is a good example of that. I also really want to avoid having a bunch of pinned threads at the top of the forum which you always have to scroll past to get to the actual threads with new content. It's my thinking that If the demand is there for a thread, it will be used. In this specific case it's just that the conversation naturally drifted to a point where it could have continued in this lounge thread. I don't hold it against anybody if they didn't use the lounge thread. My heads-up earlier was just meant as a friendly reminder. :)

    I totally get not wanting to have a bunch of pinned threads crapping up the top of the forum; I've been there myself in the past. But this thread was definitely "out of sight, out of mind." :)

    I agree. And I gather that a pinned thread isn't subject to the necro rule.So there is that as well.

    Relating to Warped9's speculation about the behavior of a physical model of the "Aqua Shuttle", something that should NOT work as a submersible, but somehow does...

    ^^ Yep, I’ve seen that. That was kinda cool. I know many years ago I’ve seen firsthand an actual large Seaview model in the water that could cruise, submerge, surface and maneuver. I don’t know if anyone has ever done that with a Flying Sub model—it would be cool to see.

    There is this.
