You may think I've blown this out of proportion, but this time I have undeniable SCIENTIFIC PROOF!!
POINT 1: Diamond Select Toys has licenses for both Star Wars and Star Trek
POINT 2: Diamond Select has never done a cross over line for fear the universe would fold in on itself and time would explode exponentially from the center of a newly formed black hole. Proof of this nearly happening lies in Bristol Palin almost winning a dance competition and the movie Burlesque.
POINT 3: To work a loop-hole in the cross over/black hole theory, Diamond Select chooses a February release date to launch the coolest collectibles ever conceived for both their Star Wars and Star Trek lines, simultaneously.
Solving for X = Diamond Select being the cause of the civil war in the past. I hope you are happy boys. Of course Diamond will argue that they didn't actually MAKE the Star Trek item in question and are only selling in in their Previews catalog, but that's just apples and pears.
So their horrifically awesome creations are not a waste, here's the skinny...
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back - Slave 1 Bank : The hit DST bank line continues with a brand new Star Wars-themed release! Bounty hunter Boba Fett is one of the most iconic and popular characters in the Star Wars saga, and his distinctive starship, Slave-1, nearly brought an end to the rebellion with its precious cargo — the Carbonite-encased Han Solo. Now you can capture the relentless bounty hunter’s ship as your very own as this colorful and detailed vinyl coin bank, perfect for saving your well-earned bounties or just for display!
Star Trek: Classic Captain Kirk Statue : Hollywood Collectibles proudly present James T. Kirk, Captain of the starship Enterprise, as he directs shipboard operations from his iconic chair! With an authentic likeness of William Shatner as Captain Kirk, and with no detail spared on his Captain’s chair, this statue is a must-have for any Star Trek fan! This incredible piece of art is constructed from heavyweight polystone and then hand painted to the finest detail. Sculpted in 1/6the-scale, Kirk is 10” high seated in his chair. This statue is a Limited Edition of just 600 individually-numbered pieces.
Quake in fear.
