Star Trek: Collectibles
We’re pleased to announce the official release of Bye Bye, Robot’s eight newest posters. If you attended Vegas Khhaaan this year and stopped by the Bye Bye, Robot booth you had the inside scoop and saw them (early) in person. Maybe you were even there while Ira Steven Behr (writer of TNG’s “Captains’s Holiday”) signed a copy of the new “Escape to Risa” poster. I know I was, and it was a blast! Well, for the rest of humanity (and extraterrestrials, alike), who didn’t have the pleasure of spending a week in Vegas reveling in all things Trek, we’re here to tell you all about the new posters.
I’ve never been so impressed with an artist’s skill before. Ok, ok…I had to squeeze that pun into the article somewhere, so I thought I’d give you a break and get it over with quickly.
Now, feast your peepers on the new line of posters we’re Bye Bye, Robot is launching today. It’s a brand new, fully licensed, series of Star Trek ships as shown through the artist Jeff Foster’s eyes. His style, being highly influenced by the Impressionists of the late 1800’s, brings this unique juxtaposition of past and future together. No longer is your fandom stuck in the game-room, these art pieces can bring your Star Trek collection straight into your living room. Their beautiful colors, delicate technique, and iconic imagery appeal to fans and art collectors alike.
We're as excited as a Klingon Warrior at a blood wine all-nighter.... That was followed by a "GLOURIOUS BATTLE! QAPLA'!!". In our hot little hands is the preview limited edition MONOPOLY®: Star Trek Klingon Edition box that includes the 1/6th scale Chancellor's Cane from Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, box art & Klingon Empire proclamation. The actual game board and pieces have yet to be released, but the fine folks at USAopoly passed along the preview sample to us, so we could take a few pics and post them here for your viewing pleasure.
First off, the box art looks fantastic. It includes nice vibrant colors featuring recognizable Klingon symbols plus a sweet bat'leth at the top. Opening the box reveals the placeholders for the "Honor" & "Combat" cards, plus the Chancellor's cane. The cane is made from a rubber type resin and has a forged looking stand for displaying.
