Diamond Select Toys brings a few pretty high profile items to market this week including an awesome Klingon Bird of Prey starship, Knight Rider’s KITT in full-on pursuit mode and a zombie who just wants to take a bite out of your favorite beverage.
DST has a bunch of these bottle-openers out there at this point and they never fail to make ’em something fans of the various properties they feature would want. The newest, a The Walking Dead opener, is just as cool as you might imagine with a gaping zombie maw just waiting to munch on some bottle caps.
Knight Rider stuff is always something to look forward to as well since the classic TV show really doesn’t see a glut of collectibles get out there, well, pretty much ever. Even both those items are awesome in their own right, my pick of the week this week has to be the Klingon Bird of Prey first seen in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home and then in the popular Star Trek: The Next Generation television show.
Of course, it probably doesn’t hurt that I’m a huge ST:TNG fan and I loved that movie, but the newest ship in DST’s hanger is just plain awesome. The Bird of Prey comes complete with lights and sounds from Star Trek IV and an spare set of landing gear with ‘Bounty’ scrawled on them- exactly how it was customized by the crew of the Enterprise when they commandeered the ship.
All three of these items are in stores right now for your collecting pleasure; here’s your official rundown:
- Star Trek IV Bounty Klingon Bird of Prey Electronic Starship – From the far-flung future of 1986, comes the newest electronic starship from DST!
