Star Trek Rockets To LaunchPosted by T'Bonz - 19/03/12 at 12:03 pm
MPC model rockets, popular in the 1960s when Star Trek first aired, are set to return this autumn with several Star Trek rockets included in the release by Round 2.
The three Star Trek rockets will include the USS Enterprise 1701, the Klingon Bird-of-Prey, and the USS Reliant NCC-1864.
The new rockets will include three thirteen-to-twenty-inch tall Star Trek rockets, all of which can be “assembled in less than an hour,” and which come with Star Trek decals. Engines, igniters, recovery wadding, launch control units and launch pads will be sold separately.
Each Trek rocket kit “utilizes graphic elements from specific Star Trek ships to create very-stylized, high-impact themed rockets that can fly up to 260 feet high. The parachutes are covered in color, Trek-centric graphics designed to make an impact as the rocket descends.”
“MPC rockets are a great fit for the market as there are currently no other licensed rockets,” said Round 2 Owner Tom Lowe. “These rockets are poised to make a strong statement at retail.”
The Star Trek MPC rockets will go on sale in September.
