Actual Star Trek actors now available at knock-down prices!
Forbidden Planet’s website appears to have branched out from comics and merchandising and that, and they’re now flogging actual actors from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
The bargain of the year appears to be Avery Brooks, better known as Commander Benjamin Sisko in the series, although he’s also strutted his stuff in Spenser: For Hire and A Man Called Hawk.
Right now, you can buy Brooks for just £24.99 – you can deploy him to do some light housework or maybe sit him in a corner and get him to replicate some of his voiceover work from documentary films such as Jesus: The Complete Story, Land of the Mammoth: Ancient Evidence, The Ballad of Big Al, The Science of Big Al, Engineering the Impossible (The Coliseum), Greatest Places, Echoes From The White House, God vs. Satan and Jewels of the Rift. Some of those may be made up as we lifted them straight off Wikipedia.
We immediately ordered ourselves an Avery Brooks, and we’re hoping it’s not a misprice. Then, after perusing the site a little further, we came across a Jolene Blalock (T’Pol in Star Trek: Enterprise.) She’s a little bit more expensive at £39.99 but then again, she is considerably younger than Brooks.
Watch this space – once they both arrive, we’ll be breeding them and hopefully setting up some kind of live webcam thing…
