As for myself, I used to be a diehard toy collector. I have the original set: Ken as Kirk and Barbie as Uhura, I guess but white. What I like about this new set is that the Uhura is the real Uhura. There is no need to have an altered version just so Barbie can fit in.
As I’ve mentioned before, I used to be a toy collector. Aside from these tough economic times, my priorities have changed due to raising a family. The $50 to $100 I used to drop down every couple of weeks has dropped to dramatically to the $1.99 special at Burger King for the Star Trek glasses. Also, if follow my blog, you’ll notice several referennces to Adam Smith’s Invisible Hand Theory. In a nutshell, you’ll understand why I will be willing to wait several months to a year until demand drops and so will the price. But man, they are so cool.

After years of boldly going where no one has gone before, the Star Trek franchise is going back to the beginning! In the highly anticipated movie set to debut in summer 2009, audiences will discover how it all began, with the most famous crew ever to command a starship bearing the name Enterprise.
Star Trek follows Captain James T. Kirk, the half-human/half-Vulcan First Officer Spock, communications officer Lieutenant Uhura, and the rest of the legendary team in their early days at Starfleet Academy and aboard the Federation’s flagship.
