Star Trek Fighter Pod Custom: Admiral Pike

This version of Admiral Pike is based on Bruce Greenwood’s character in Into Darkness.

This figure was made from a Star Trek alien Fighter Pod body and a Star Wars Fighter Pod series 3 Han Solo head.

Micro Force Series 3 Found!

I was going by a Target that is somewhat out of my normal rounds, so I decided to pop in just in case they had Series 3. And they did! Series 3 and 4 had both been out in the UK for awhile, and I was beginning to wonder if they were going to be released elsewhere.

I picked up three packs and got three new figures and some reprints from the original Fighter Pod series. I scored Snoke, Chirrut Imwe, and Rose!

I love the little Chirrut picture on the back!

As a bonus, due to what I’m assuming was a factory mistake, Rose came with not one but two Sandtroopers!

Star Trek Fighter Pod Custom: Berlinghoff Rasmussen

One of my favorite ST:TNG episodes is “A Matter of Time” from season 5. In this episode, while the Enterprise crew is trying to save a planet from a global catastrophe, a time traveler from the future, Berlinghoff Rasmussen, arrives to observe. Picard and crew wrestle with the ethics of whether or not to use future knowledge to solve a present danger. And, spoiler, there’s a great twist in the end (are spoiler warnings necessary for something that aired 27 years ago?)

While the role was originally written for Robin Williams, it is delightfully played by Max Headroom actor Matt Frewer. His performance is just plain fun to watch as he intrigues, amuses, annoys, and frustrates (sometimes all at once) the Enterprise crew.

This figure was made from a Micro Force Hologram Luke Skywalker body and a Fighter Pod Chekov head. His coat is made from clay, and he is holding a stolen tricorder taken from a Fighter Pod McCoy.
