As the release date for J.J. Abrams' Star Trek
movie gets closer every day, the Star Trek products are rolling off the assembly lines. This is one of our favorites. You too can own your own plush Tribble, which was featured in the classic original episode, "The Trouble With Tribbles." The Tribble costs $29.99 and looks just like the one in Kirk's hand in the screenshot. Here's the description:
Whatever you do, don't feed the Tribbles! Recreating one of the most memorable and adorable aliens ever to appear on Star Trek, this Original Series Tribble plush features real sounds and motion from the iconic episode "The Trouble With Tribbles"! Trigger the Tribble's calm, soothing coo's or switch the six-inch fur-ball to agitated mode for the ultimate in Klingon detection!
We feel quite sure there won't be any Tribbles involved in the new Star Trek movie (how cool would that be?), but surely they will show up sooner or later as the franchise progresses.
You can get your Tribble at Diamond Select Toys
and Collectibles. Roddenberry.com also has lots of Responsive Tribbles here
