Star Wars and Star Trek have more than JJ Abrams in common this week as Diamond Select has some very cool releases in stores now from both famed franchises- and Marvel fans, you’re not out in the cold either.
As a big Trek fan, this weeks new releases do my heart well. A Tricorder and classic communicator set and an Enterprise B replica? Yes please. There’s such a dearth of quality Star Trek collectables on the market right now, I’d take pretty much anything. The fact that this stuff just looks so darned cool is icing on the cake.
So lets get to it-
