January 27, 2009

All Hands, This is the Captain…

Classic Star Trek Captain's ChairDiamond Select Toys is excited to announce by far the largest collectible this side of the Neutral Zone, the classic Star Trek Captain’s Chair replica!  That’s right, Captain Kirk’s instantly recognized command chair from the bridge of the U.S.S. Enterprise can finally be yours!

This iconic sci-fi release measures an astonishing 3 1/2 feet wide by 3 1/4 feet deep and stands just under 3 1/2 feet tall.  The chair itself is constructed of high-quality fiberglass and features plastic, metal and wooden accents to recreate the legendary original prop.  Highlights include a newly-engineered base to allow full 360° rotation, a leather seat cover, working indicators and switches as well as your favorite sound effects from the classic Star Trek series!

Detailed schematics of the Captain’s Chair supplied by Paramount were used to iron out the various chair designs and create the ultimate Star Trek lifestyle accessory.  The right-hand console includes settings for Yellow and Red Alert, Pod Jettison, Micro Tape and the ship’s Intercom while the left-hand panel features Hailing Frequencies, Viewscreen Activation and Shuttle Operation controls – each with sound effects or light-up details.

This impressive piece can be ordered through any comic book store and will ship in two pieces.  Due to varying shipping costs and the size of this item, we strongly encourage interested customers to request a shipping estimate from their retailer of choice prior to purchasing this item.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
