AMT® To Release Set of Three Iconic Ships from “Star Trek®: The Motion Picture” & “Star Trek® II: The Wrath of Khan”


SOUTH BEND, Indiana – 05/29/2012 – AMT®, a brand of Round 2, LLC, will introduce to its popular 1:2500 scale Cadet Series of model kits three ships featured in Star Trek®: The Motion Picture and Star Trek® II: The Wrath of Khan. The newest Cadet Series kit, licensed by CBS Consumer Products, will include one each of the U.S.S. Enterprise™ 1701 Refit, the U.S.S. Reliant™ and the Klingon K’Tinga. These will be produced from all-new molds and have never before been available in this scale as plastic model kits!

“We’re proud to bring these new ships to modelers,” said Jamie Hood, Senior Designer at Round 2. “Our Cadet Series is a popular line, and these three ships are a great addition to the fleet!” Hood added that the new models are being created with beginning builders in mind; they have only a few parts and snap together for an easy build! The Cadet Series is great for seasoned model builders too – at a final finished size of just 4” each, these models offer the challenge of getting all of the small-scale details perfect.

The U.S.S. Enterprise Refit and Klingon K’Tinga were first seen in Star Trek®: The Motion Picture and the U.S.S. Reliant is featured in Star Trek® II: The Wrath of Khan. All three models will be produced from brand new molds. The U.S.S. Enterprise and the U.S.S. Reliant will come molded in white plastic, and the K’Tinga will be in gray plastic. Along with the all-new molds, new graphics have been designed as well to let modelers put the finishing touch on their build.  The included decal sheets provide thoroughly researched surface details for each ship.

AMT’s Cadet Series Star Trek®: The Motion Picture three-piece set will be available in hobby shops or at in late 2012!

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 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,,, Boing-Boing,, 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.
