Beam Me Back to the ’70s, Scotty

A time when both playsets and carrying cases ruled the land. Well, Diamond Select?who have been re-making the old Mego Star Trek figures, along with some new ones?have boldly gone one step further by announcing they’ll be re-releasing the old Enterprise Bridge playset as well. This classic nerd-toy includes a slick Transporter and captain’s chair, but Diamond has added an interchangeable viewscreen (for seeing oppressive masculine aliens and sexy feminine aliens, natch) and decals. Best of all, it folds up into a swell carrying case, so it can easily be put away when someone you want to respect you comes over, like a family member or a woman. The retro set will be released in spring of ’09, and cost $60.
