The price is the main turn-off. I mean a couple months back I picked up an original on eBay with a BIN of 35 bucks.

Ares6009 - 2008-12-16 @ 3:19 am

I figure it will run about $60. Which is sad, considering I'm sure the original (same) ran probably about $15. Still, to be able to hit that spinner (the transporter) and see the figure 'vanish', that would be something....

I guess it's more about how much you will pay for a memory. The construction is weak, colors completely off, and the only action feature is the transporter. While that makes me cringe now, I do remember it was all the Enterprise I needed as a kid, and I guess that's what it's all about.

Wheeljack35 - 2008-12-16 @ 12:09 am

Yeah meaning it will cost an arm and a leg

hamsterboy - 2008-12-15 @ 6:16 am

Digging this up because I've heard that TRU will be carrying this. Here's to hoping they get the retro stuff.

Devastator_2000 - 2008-09-01 @ 5:37 pm

I used to have this set a looong time ago. Dont really remember what happened to it. My guess is I lost it allong will almy other toys when my parents decided to get rid of my toys.

Wheeljack35 - 2008-08-24 @ 6:22 pm

WOW I haven't seen that since I was a kid

It has vinyl walls

yojoebro82 - 2008-08-24 @ 2:20 pm

I have the original and I use it to display my non-Mego TOS crew. Their scale fits pretty well as long as you don't mind the trippy colors of the bridge......

By the way, looking for a few parts for this:

the transporter

2 view screens

2 consol stools if anyone can help!

Bespin refugee - 2008-08-24 @ 7:10 am

Just found it

It's a Mego scale ('Retro Cloth') playset planned for early '09

ARROW - 2008-08-24 @ 5:51 am
