Star Trek fans: get ready to open your wallet nice and wide. Shown off late last night, there is a new set coming from Playmobil that should raise eyebrows in the fandom. The U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 is a staggering 42 inches long and 18 inches wide and includes a ton of lights and sounds, all controlled by an app on your phone or tablet. It also comes with every character and accessory that you could possibly want to come in this set, a display stand, and even a wire so you can hang it from the ceiling. The price is where the shock comes in: $499.99. This is the biggest playset in Playmobil history and maybe in Star Trek collecting history. Check it out below, and preorder one for yourself here.
