Corgi Signs Deal to Produce Star Trek 40th Anniversary Collectibles Corgi Signs Deal to Produce Star Trek 40th Anniversary Collectibles; Plans Include Replicas from Original Series and Star Trek: Next Generation
News-Antique.com - Nov 30,-0001 - Corgi International Limited (NASDAQ:CRGI), the leading name in die-cast scale models, has added another license to their already impressive portfolio, by signing a new deal with Copyright Promotions to produce a range of commemorative products to celebrate Star Trek's 40th anniversary in 2006.
The first two die-cast replica models from the Star Trek range will be launched in February 2006; the USS Enterprise NCC-1701 and the Klingon Bird of Prey. Both spacecraft have become synonymous with the Star Trek global phenomenon, with the Enterprise having been featured in the very first episode screened in 1966.
In May 2006, the third launch to come out of Corgi's commemorative range will be the Next Generation Enterprise NCC-1701-D. Set nearly a century after Star Trek, the show featured a new starship (also named Enterprise) and a new crew. Star Trek: The Next Generation was the highest rated of all the Star Trek series, and was the number one syndicated show during the last few years of its original run in the 1990s.
A limited edition run of all three ships will be available in Autumn/Winter 2006, each coming with a specially designed light up mount.
David Wootliff, Corgi's marketing director said: "Star Trek, like Corgi, has entertained generations of children and grown-ups over the years, and we are delighted to be able to commemorate such a significant achievement with top quality replica models".
