I though it would be nice for us to share some of the toys from the American based science fiction tv series and movies that we all grew up with. Who still can remember shows like Star Trek (All series), Star Wars (cannot leave this one out!!!), Battlestar Galactica (old and new), Lost in Space, Land of the Giants, Thunderbirds (Ok this is English), Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon (this is really old), Voyage to the botom of the sea, Seaquest, Space 1999 (English again), Airwolf, Knight Rider (everyone wanted a KITT!!), Batman (animated and live). Just so many!!! Lets share share the poisonlah.

Let me start off, who still remembers Space 1999 that aired around 1975-1978..... during what I consider to be the Golden Age of Science Fiction. Its about occupants on the moon, living on "Moonbase Alpha". The story begins as the moon is knocked out of earth's orbit by a nuclear explosion. The occupants then meet Aliens and encounter strange phenomena that require them to work together. Their primary mode of space transportation is via a spacecraft called the Eagle. Gerry Anderson, really pulled this one off, very nice spacehip.

Excerpt form wikipedia:
QUOTE
The Eagles are powered by four nuclear fusion rockets and carry fuel reserves for 48 hours of flight. Artificial gravity force fields built into the Eagle enable it to accelerate up to 15% of the speed of light, giving it a maximum range (with extra fuel reserves) of several light-days.

The Eagle also has the capability to enter the atmosphere of a normal-gravity planet and then land using its chemically-fueled landing rockets, and take off and return to Moonbase Alpha.

The onboard computer system can handle guidance, astronavigation and interpretation of sensor data; it can even be flown using remote control from Moonbase Alpha and guided safely down for a landing.
And I have just received a specialized version of the Eagle called the "Laboratory Eagle" made by Product Enterprise, sold in Japan under Aoshima and lastly made in China.

QUOTE
which carries equipment of a more scientific nature than the standard Eagle, they are usually fitted with additional airlocks for decontamination purposes, and appear to have small but well-equipped laboratories on board, that can be detached from the main space craft.


Enjoy the pictures....

Laboratory Eagle just out of the box. The ship comes with a cardboard backdrop of Moonbase Alpha. Very thoughtful of the manufacturer... very nice to display together with the ship.
Attached Image

The ship is held very snugly in its plastic packing. The Eagle is really beautiful. We will never see this type to ingenuity ever again.
Attached Image

The Cockpit and the superstructure that attaches the cockpit to the engines. The cockpit, the engines and the laboratory module are completely Die-Cast. So its a very heavy toy. And the paint work is top notch, look at the black speckling over the white cockpit.... just lovely.

Nope, can get under RM400. But sadly Aoshima has stopped licensing this spaceship from Product Enterprise. Now just got a handful of ships left. However fret not, coz Product Enterprise has no plans of stopping production so you can always find it... from Product Enterpise in England rclxub.gif

WHOA, the ArtAsylum U.S.S. Enterprise-D (All Good Things version) has shipped in the US!!

Personally, i dont like this version of the Galaxy class, but looking at the picture gives a size scale comparison of the upcoming original Galaxy Class Ent-D to the Sovereign class Ent-E.. and yes! they are to scale! smile.gif

this is from someone's collection, not mine:

will be getting my Ent-A next week smile.gif and the Ent-E and -D when BBTS received the -D preorder smile.gif woohoo!!!!

..btw, the new movie Enterprise shown in the pic above (second frm left, next to the NX-01) is from Playmates, and not ArtAsylum/Diamond.. the reviews on that ship are all negative, especially concerning the exposed screw-holes, the messy paint app and the ugly molded mark of the manufacturer code (or stuff).. Will wait for ArtAsylum's version, which will probably be a long time.. sigh sad.gif

Only flaws i find with this ArtAsylum replica is the REALLY flimsy stand, and the fact the lights are not "blue" enough, kinda blue-whitish..

It's a Beautiful ship nonetheless smile.gif now just waiting for the -D and -E smile.gif

Hi there bro smile.gif

I'm not exactly sure, but a fellow Trekkie informed me that you can get STrek stuff at MyScif-Fi Ouspost near Cineleisure..

I got all my STrek stuff from e-Bay though, since im located in Sarawak smile.gif

Do you mean figures from the latest series 'Enterprise'? those figures are very rare now; even on eBay the prices are wayyyyy high sad.gif probably because the series was canceled.

Anyone remember a cartoon from 1999 called The Iron Giant? Its set in the the post WWII cold war era of 1957 during which there was an escalation of tension between US and the Soviets. Anyways the story is about a Giant Metal Robot that crashes into earth from Outer Space. The show is silent about the robots origins. The robot subsequently befriends a young boy..... Google for more information about this cartoon. Highly recommended.

The cast of the cartoon is quite impressive, voiced by Jennifer Aniston, Harry Connick Jr., Vin Diesel among others. I love the story and the animation so I went ahead and bought an Iron Giant figure. Pricey is the word.
