Canadian firm Mega Blok is out with several new TOS-themed plastic brick sets, but the most spectacular is the Enterprise Bridge -- which comes with Kirk, Spock, Uhura, and Sulu.
You gotta be a mega-fan of brick sets for this -- which has nearly 600 pieces and two instruction books replete with 82 different assembly steps!
And, in my opinion, this is the best part: Mini Mega Blok Trek Props!
That's pretty Awesome DaveThanks for that.
Thanks for Sharing. The company in the old Northern Telecom Building close to me in Lachine. Made in Canada...Interested.-Steve
Nice set that actually captures the right feel and the likenesses are pretty good too.
Agreed. I especially like what they did with the console graphics.
I simply must have this!
I got mine for Xmas and I've been having fun with it on facebook ever since..I call this one "Texting and driving in the 23rd century.".
That's pretty cool.
One more... (politically neutral observation)
That Kirk looks more like Vic M than William S. LOL! (at least to me)
You'll have to try the Mega Bloks Enterprise. That thing is a beast! Took me several days to get it built.
These Mega Bloks sets aren't accurate to any degree, but they are better than many Trek-related "toys" have been in the past, and really fun to build. I have them all but the Enterprise, the bridge set and the Klingon D7 are my favorites. Unfortunately they've been discontinued, so grab 'em now if you're interested. They may have collectible value going forward.
I have been watching the price on this massive kit (3098 pieces) for a while. It started on Amazon at $250.00 and has gradually gone down since xmas. It is now at $79.99 w/free Prime delivery. Of course I snagged one...if you are interested, now would be the time...I can't imagine a better deal ever coming along.
The Bussard collectors even light up.
This is a very cool set! It was a bit exhausting to build but it was fun. Since Lego has the patent to number their parts bags, Mega Bloks can't do it so their parts for this set are a bit unorganized. I'd suggest spreading all the parts across the floor and separating them by color and type of piece. It will make the build a lot easier so you don't spend so much time looking for the parts. It's really heavy when complete. Also, there is on most sets, a tricky part with where the bridge connects to the saucer. There seems to be some weird thing where you may have trouble making the parts stay together, You'll see what I mean when you get to that section. I had to use super glue to make those pieces stay together. That's a great price for the set! Have fun and good luck with building it. It'll keep you busy for awhile!
Never, will I do this.....
But that doesn't mean I don't like watching you do it.Quite the undertaking, and massive as well. Tough one to make space for, at least!
I picked one up last week when it was $99.99 -$20 coupon on Amazon. I've enjoyed building the other Mega Bloks Trek kits. Far from accurate, but a fun diversion and I've been impressed with the quality.
The box this kit comes in is pretty impressive, it's the size of a small suitcase and heavy for what it is.
I was at a hobby shop in Rochester, NY last week and they had the kit (boxed up) hanging from the ceiling. The box is HUGE and looks heavy (19lbs!)...they were asking the full retail price $249.99.
