Hawthorne Village STAR TREK train!

May 12th, 2009 (07:18 am)

Hawthorne Village, when it isn't making miniature Christmas houses, makes head-scratchingly strange collectibles, like The Village of Horror, or this LORD OF THE RINGS train set: "Pardon me orc, is that the Minus Morgul choo-choo?".

Now comes this STAR TREK train set. I just can't picture their audience; both Trekkies and model railroaders would be mortified to have this, I'd think.



Maybe if it was a miniature mag-lev train, or something. As is, I can only picture it's the gift your Great Aunt orders for you because she knows you're into that Space Travels show.



Also, pictures from 1970s STAR TREK conventions! (By way of bonniegrrl)

Disturbing. I would imagine that the Vin Diagram for people who love Trek AND model trains would yield a pretty small group.

But I've been wrong before. I mean, how many Trekkies out there would NORMALLY buy commemorative plates?
