Overall, the Hot Wheels line of Star Trek replicas has been a bit underwheming. The ( most of the time ) decent sculpts have been marred by uneven detailing, slipshod paintwork, and the use of second rate materials such as soft plastics for parts that need some strength. Many ( including myself ) have complained bitterly about the lack of metal in a line of toys that were marketed as "DIECAST METAL" on the packages. Wisely, Mattel has seen the light and decided to drop that misleading description from the boxes of later releases.
This replica turns out to be one of the better of the bunch. The overall components look to be pretty correctly shaped and there is some nicely sculpted detailng, especially on the top of the saucer and the inset areas of the engines. As usual though, the painted on markings are hit or miss. Some are well done while some are inexplicably missing. Once again, there is very little diecast metal used in the fabrication of this toy. The only section that appears to be metal is the central section of the engineering hull. The rest is plastic ( why the designers of these toys don't cast the support pylons that hold the engines aloft is unfathomable to me. This would keep them from drooping over time ... a common complaint with most of the Enterprise replicas ).
Strangely, while this release would seem to be a popular favorite that would sell well on it's own, Mattel went with the odd decision to release this toy only in a megaset containing six Hot Wheels replicas with the Star Trek edition of their "Scene It" DVD Trivia game. This set was only available in a limited edition from Costco, and is sold out. So now the only way to get one of these is through secondary retailers, who presumably scooped up several of these megasets, and have broken them down to sell the pieces individually ( usually at a price nearly equaling the original cost of the set! ). It's up to the individual collector to decide if it's worth paying nearly twice what one of these would have cost, had they been sold individually.
