I was busy today - can anyone already see what this will become? ;)
I started out with glueing and nailing several pieces of styrofoam together to get a base. Then I coated it with cardboard as that will be easier to paint. Styrofoam will melt if spray painted with the wrong paint (that is not acid-free). So be careful if you want to attempt that too!

As promised, the introduction post for Doctor "Bones" McCoy. He comes with moving tricorder, phaser, communicator and lots of hands like Kirk and Spock. But his best bit is the medical set! It connects to his pants via magnets. And all the items can be taken out.
And he even has the small ring! It is loose and can be put on any hand. And the Exclusive version even has the medical tunic.

Many more pictures under the cut!

Okay, first for everyone who like me has an earworm since my previous post ;) Here is one of my favorite songs, I've loved it ever since I was a child and had no idea that it was from a musical. Here is the really funny interpretation with John Barrowman and Ruthie Henshall. One of the first songs I found that night when I found out that JB sings: Anything you can do I can do better

But I digress. Here is the promised proper introduction post for the Mezco Kirk. He is 16,5 cm / 6,5" high. And he has ONE advantage over the 12" QMX Kirk which you can see when you click the LJ cut ;)

“Anything you can do, I can do better…"
The Mezco Kirk has arrived and it is a tiny version of the big one! I love both of them. I’ll do a proper introduction post yet. Just wanted to get this teaser picture out.

I just watched this Simpsons episode on German TV and giggled my way through the end credits, done in true Star Trek TOS style. They are spot on! My favorite are the cat lady with cats as Tribbles, and the twins. Yours?

Some picture of my first Mezco Spock. The Mirror Mirror version was first available at SDCC and can now be ordered at the Think Geek shop. There is also a Cage Spock variant available. Ordinary Spock has been out for a few months but has not reached German shops yet. There will be also Kirk and Sulu in October, and they work on a Captain's chair. Maybe we'll even get the whole bridge, that would be cool.

So far no plans to make the golden Mirror Kirk but I hope they'll do him one day.

These are 1:12 scale, even smaller than my other action figures, but with real clothes and great faces. With about 70 USD they cost more than normal figures, but considerably less than the 1:6 collectors scale. They also come with several hands for different poses, just like the big ones. See more pictures behind the cut.

Kirk has finally beamed in. I am bringing you lots of pictures of all the great accessories he comes with, and I also have tried different poses and angles with the different hands. As expected, he is simply amazing. Everyone is saying that but it is still true. I also yet have to unwrap Spock. So much awesomeness! See it all behind the cut!

For those not in the know, this weekend is the big 50th anniversary Star Trek convention in Las Vegas with pretty much everyone there.
I just want to share three really nice pictures.

Look [personal profile] annejack!

It's San Diego Comic Con weekend and Quantum Mechanix have published pictures of their upcoming lines. I am posting just the TOS stuff, there is also Next Generation, Supernatural, Firefly and Justified.
And I'll get my Captain's Chair! Yay! For those that are wondering, Uhura and Chekov are in the making as well. The whole team.

They even got details like Bones' pinkie ring (it belonged to DeForest Kelley's mother and he never took it off) and Scotty's missing finger (James Doohan lost it in the Normandie) right:

The second small set, sword fighting with Klingons! From the episode "Day of the Dove".
That's it, I won't get the huge Enterprise model, it's over 300 USD and I have no place where to display it. But I'd love getting the Kirk and Spock that come with it, in dress uniforms...

Here's a picture of it
