Product News July 2016
During July 2016, we covered a ton of Star Trek and geek-related products. However, we might have elided over them a little too quickly, or maybe you didn’t get a chance to see the pictures?
Not to worry. Because we have got you covered.
Recently, CBS Consumer Products announced their new licensees for the 50th anniversary year. And the range of products is truly dizzying. And these are just a handful!
First of all, we just loved these Star Trek Beyond-Inspired Dresses & Tunics from ANOVOS! Sizes small to 2XL, priced at $165 apiece. Plus they will ship during the fourth quarter of 2016.
Next up are these ultra-comfy-looking Star Trek Lounge Pants. Think Geek is retailing them for $14.99, sizes Small to 2X.
CosplaySky is now offering Star Trek Into Darkness Marcus Shirt Uniform Costume Blue Version. And they are sized XS to XXXL; price reduced to $29.99.
Check out Star Trek.com’s Comic Con Gear. For example, this 50th anniversary gold delta shirt retails for $26.95 and comes in sizes Small to XXL.
Have you seen this gorgeous Star Trek 50th Anniversary Badge? Because it’s $19.95 from StarTrek.com.
Food and Drink
Tribbles-inspired beer is coming to Comic-con and STLV. Although there is no word on prices yet, be sure to check out their website.
Plus, now you get to beer me up, as two Star Trek beers are hitting the market just in time for the new movie. And then the second, also from Shmaltz Brewing Company, will debut at Mission: New York and is called Voyage to the Northeast Quadrant.
First off, make sure to toast your many victories with the Star Trek Planetary Glassware Set. It’s only $39.99 at Think Geek!
Next, outfit your bath in style with the Star Trek TNG Enterprise Blueprint Shower Curtain. It retails at Think Geek for $24.99.
And then there’s the Star Trek TNG Uniform Bedding Set – it’s just what you need to explore strange, new dreams! The set costs $49.99 – $89.99, depending upon size. Plus they offer a duvet cover and sheets. And you get four pips, so relax and dream of command.
Or you can survive the chill of Andoria with the new Star Trek TNG Fleece Blanket. It’s $24.99 at Think Geek, and comes in blue, gold, and red. Because it’s a throw, it would probably look best with the sheet set for a twin bed.
Next up – you saw it in Star Trek Beyond and loved it – the USS Franklin model coming as Star trek Beyond home video bonus!
