I'm still looking for the regular Ent-D and Voyager from that series. I doubt they'll ever show at TRU here, and Hobby Lobby, my source for wave 2, isn't getting them either.

Hopefully online stores continue to get them, for however long (or briefly) this line lasts.

I'm weak.  I went back and picked up the 1701-D and Voyager.  I'll probably buy more.  Hoping the comic store gets series 4 in so I can pick up the other Cube. 

I expect these are long gone from US retail?  Ebay I suspect will be the source to backfill.

So essentially that means it's a good thing I didn't pick up the DVD sets at this point, since now there's bound to be a remastered set.  Or maybe I can get the original sets cheaper. 

Space channel is starting them up again, I've seen the recent ads on the tube 8)

New Episodes digitally remastered or not, I bought season 1&2 of the original series in the funky packaging.  After watching it on ebay and at retail for a long time sitting at $130 CAD or so, then finding it at $56 CAD at Walmart, I snapped it up.  I'll get season three at next payday and be done with it :)

Here's something for you Star Trek fans... Christies 40 Years of Star Trek: The Collection auction.

Dang, I spent a good time looking through the lots, some pretty good stuff up for grabs from various areas of the ST universe if you have a deep wallet!

I like this prop, Picard's Ressikan flute from the episode "The Inner Light". Estimate $800. - $1,200 U.S.

Christie's underestimates Trekkies, pulls $7.1 million

Serious ******* $$$!  :o   :o

Quote
Christie's estimated that a replica of the Starship Enterprise used in "Star Trek: The Next Generation" would command between $25,000 and $35,000.

The actual haul? $576,000

The model is 78 inches long!

Trivia tid bit: Family Guy and American Dad creator Seth Mc Fairlane bought one of the Enterprise models from the Christies Auction.

Has anyone had any luck locating Legends of ST vehicles at retail? Most reputable online stores sold out a while back, and my local TRU or Hobby Lobbies never got them in. I'm still looking for the regular Ent-D and Voyager.
