You are the toy you choose to buy.
There’s already a Spider-Man Ice Cube Tray, but apparently the good folks at Diamond Select Toys realized those ice cubes were a bit childish in appearance and probably not appropriate for use at my dinner parties. Hence, they have another silicone model that is far more sophisticated and better for cooling off your favorite crime fighter after another day of dealing with street thugs and super-villains.
Diamond Select Toys recently announced this Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan communicator to be released in November 2009. Modeled after the communicator used by Admiral Kirk in the film, this also features sound effects from the movie (i.e., you can set it to play the famous “Khaaaan” clip when you open it). This one will set you back about $30.
There are replicas and then there are replicas. Diamond Select Toys is going to be offering a full-sized replica of the Captain’s Chair from Star Trek TOS, complete with working lights, sound effects and a few Shanterian phrases (not sure if that last one is a bug or a feature). This one will set you back $2,000..
Diamond Select Toys recently announced that in 2009 it will release a Retro Star Trek Bridge Playset to accompany all of the Retro Star Trek action figures its been selling based on the original Mego models.
According to DST,
A timeless part of many childhoods, this set includes a variety of features found in the original design as well as a few upgrades! Among the classic elements returning are the working spin-around Transporter mechanism, fold-up design with carrying case handle, interchangeable view-screen graphics, do-it-yourself decal sticker sheets as well as plastic chair and table accessories!
I had the original Mego Star Trek playset as a kid. Loved that spinning transporter. Damn, now I’m going to have to go out and buy all the retro Star Trek figures to go with this.
