Um... so it happened again. More incredible Star Trek bargains thanks to #Gumtree . I was already pretty stoked at the original listing featuring figures of the crew of the original #Enterprise from 1993 by #Playmates . Each including a phaser and corresponding base.
The other part of the listing was #CaptainKirk and the original series command chair by #DiamondSelect . I never knew the chair lit up and had sound bites from the series. This along goes for way more than the asking price of these figures. But it didn't end there.
The seller had told me he had other Trek items he was hoping to sell and showed me a variety of them including boxes of #Eaglemoss die cast ships. I grabbed these four for peanuts: The Delta Flyer, SS Botany Bay, The Phoenix, and the USS Grissom.
The cherry on top is this 1994 USS Enterprise by Playmates. Although not exactly in pristine condition it was a bargain at $20 and it still lights up and makes sounds.
I think I may have spent less than a third of what these would have gone for elsewhere. Geez it's been a good week... #StarTrek#tos#theoriginalseries#actionfigures#commandchair#starship#diecast#toys#collectibles#collector#bargains#geekystuff
Today's #eBay delivery has me all excited. It's the 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' 20th Anniversary Season 1 Captain Picard and Command Chair by Diamond Select (from 2007). It was never my original goal but when I realised that I had quite a few of these Picard figures I decided to try and see if I can get all the Diamond Select versions of my favourite captain. It just so happened this UK-based auction popped up at around the same time.
Picard is wearing the uniform as it appeared in season 1 of TNG while the chair itself is based on the updated design that first appeared in season 2 (which I prefer). The chair even features decals of the controls.
This goes for a variety of prices, many outside my preferred range. I think the most I saw was around $150. I won this for AU$16 (postage was only a tiny bit more) 😁
I have another DST Picard figure on the way (and one more to hunt down that I've let slip through my fingers twice now). #startrek#thenextgeneration#tng#captainpicard#patrickstewart#commandchair#anniversary#diamondselect#artasylum#auction#toys#collector#bargain
