My Thoughtsimage

On the day I learned that I would review the KRE-O Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise Construction Set, my husband and I also headed to the theater close to home to watch the new Star Trek Into Darkness movie.     As we were driving there I was sharing with my husband that I was looking forward to get the KRE-O set and that I was thinking that this one would be for me this time.   We have been blessed beyond measure with Hasbro in the past but when I applied to review their new line of KRE-O based on the Star Trek movie, I secretly hoped to get the U.S.S. Enterprise one.    Imagine my delight when I got the confirmation!    So when I share this to my husband, he looked at me with a twinkle in his eyes and said: “We should build it together!”. 


Thought we had good intention in making this work together, it just could happen by finding time to do it together.   So my husband graciously told me to go ahead and do it.   Which I did slowly over a period of 2-3 days because an homeschool mom can be quite busy sometimes.

So slowly I started to build my Entreprise.   One of my kids wanted to have the “elf”… to which I rapidly corrected “Spock is not an elf but a Vulcan! Besides Spock is mine (he is one of my favourite Star Trek characters).”   I first started the build the inside of the saucer section and the detailed instructions quickly made me go through the building of the rest of the Entreprise as well.   In the end, I thought this building experience took a bit of time and effort as I find the blocks are a bit harder to snap together than other building blocks out there.   But once it’s all together it looked good and I was quite impressed in the effort on making it as realistic as possible.

The characters itself – five in all in this set – are fabulously made as their legs, arms and body can twist as they move.  You will have Captain Kirk, Spock, Dr. McCoy, and two unknown men – you know the kind that are brought to an going away party but don’t come back because they get killed…  


And here’s the final product all assembled!   A nice Entreprise that has blue lights when we press a special button hidden under the fuselage of the vessel.


I do have a couple of issues that I need to double check – the top of the saucer of the NCC-1701 Entreprise is not clicking properly.   It’s just a matter of adjusting it I think.  However, my second issue has to do with Captain Kirk’s hair.   For some reason, it keeps popping out of the head and when that happens he becomes bald…   Not quite the Captain Kirk that we know.  So I am debating on what to do.  One option would be to glue his hair in place.  The other could be to contact Hasbro to see what can be done.  

Other items available are the KRE-O Star Trek Kreon Figure Packs, the KRE-O Star Trek Klingon Bird of Prey Construction Set, the KRE-O Star Trek Space Dive Construction Set, the KRE-O Star Trek Transporter Trouble Construction Set, and the KRE-O Star Trek  Spock’s Volcano Mission Construction Set.   But honestly I think the best one if the KRE-O Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise Construction Set!
