For the Trekkie on you List from Way Back When

Lately I’ve been finding a lot of vintage Trek merchandise on line, and since this is the giving time of year, I thought it would be fun to see what was in Trekkie Stockings in years past.  There was some Trek merchandise in the 60’s (remember those AMT models?) but Trek merchandise really boomed in the 70’s when it hit  syndication and merchandisers had a cash cow on their hands!  Some was pretty cool, some was downright awful, but it was all fun!   I’ll be posting Trek merchandise from time to time.  Enjoy, and see if you remember or received any of this stuff!

I had this poster in the ’70s

Yup, had this too!

Rare Kellogg’s Corn Flakes Trek masks – dig the ‘android’ !

No troublesome dangly cords with this ‘electric phaser gun’!

And with this Remco Rocket Pistol, you could really rev it up! ( I think this was a standard design that they just slapped a Trek sticker onto!)

The magnificent Mego toys of the 70’s

The incredible Telescreen Console – Great artwork!

Not quite sure how it worked but it looks like Kirk’s man-cave!

Say there! Uh-Oh, Spock’s in Red!

Because Spock knows the best way to get down to a planet is by parachute!

In this Trek game, Kirk and Uhura are in the Science department!
