Probably a dumb question, but...

Postby tmlindsey » Thu Nov 30, 2017 5:43 am

How desirable are the original waves of Fasa Trek miniatures from the early '80s (and the old Ship Recognition Manuals, too, for that matter)?

I know I have a small number of them that I haven't looked at in about a decade and are on my list of "need to clear out stuff I don't use/access/enjoy anymore".

Thanks in advance!

I have them all. The manuals that is.

The ships? Depoeding on which ones.

Have the manuals & some of the books myself - "back in the day" I didn't even know they had the miniatures

But if I knew they existed I would have been all over them

I saw the TMP Enterprise and Reliant at the first convention I ever went to (waaaaay back in 1983) and started getting them since there wasn't a kit of the Reliant (for decades!) and just bought the ones I liked until I got tired of trying to paint the tiny things and started scratch-building/kit bashing instead.

I know I have the two above, the NX-2000, Klingon BOP and some Romulan ships. I'll put up a full list as soon as I unearth them but I didn't know if they were really sought after or not. Sounds like it depends :)

To me they were the original "Pokemon".... Gotta Get 'em all! but now as I'm older I'm looking for them in a larger scale.

I had a few, painted them and everything. Who knows what happened to them. Probably got vleared out by my parents after I moved away to college :lol:

i would say the miniatures are highly sought-after. especially if they are in their original, unopened packaging.

i would try ebay and use various search terms. also, try star ranger miniature forums [i don't have the url, but you should be able to find it on google], which i think is still viewed as the mini starship mecca.

keep in mind three groups might the ships;

the collector = more mint = more $$$.
the gamer = bragging rights = not as much return.
gaming/modeler/kit basher of some kind, if the parts are damaged.

january always used to be a good time for selling when i was selling on ebay back in the day. xmas never saw good results, unless you were a buyer. that's going back 10 years though, so i don't know how the landscape has changed now.

Thanks Xen, I might do a search for them after the holidaze.

Nothing mint in package, all built and painted to varying degrees.
