Here’s an ad that I meant to post on the “other” toy blog a while back, but then I forgot about it. After seeing a commercial for the new Star Trek flick I remembered how awesome it was and decided I had to share it again if you hadn’t seen it already:
Despite the questionable quality of the Star Trek figures from Playmates, that’s a damned fine toy commercial. It’s just like the old school commercials of old, you know the ones that actually make toys look like a lot of fun. In fact, it looks like it was made back when Playmates were making their old Star Trek line in the 1990s.
I’d flirted with getting the bridge set at some time (even though it’s completely ridiculous most of the pieces are sold separately), this ad does a great job of convincing me that the transporter set is worth a look as well. It’s amazing that they can actually teleport toys these days, I mean, I can’t come up with any other explanation for how that thing works.
