Overpriced Holiday Gift #1

It’s that time of year again where I round up the weirdest gift ideas I can find in the catalogues that rain through my mailslot.

This first one is something that I might secretly want for myself if it weren’t for the price.  Yes, I’m a Trekkie so this appeals to me:

It’s a Kirk and Spock Transporter Figure Set.  “One shake of our water tube transporters recreates the effect [of beaming up], with flashing red, green and blue LED lights, enhanced by swirls of gold glitter.”

The hitch: the set costs $49.98 plus tax, shipping and handling.  That seems kind of pricey for something I’d play with on Christmas Day and then put on a shelf to collect dust.  Maybe there are Trekkies more devoted than I, but I refuse to even ask Santa to fork over $50 for this.

However, for all you lottery winners, here’s the link if you want to buy one: http://www.thingsyouneverknew.com/product/code/55944.do?showPrevNext=false

Beam me up, Scotty!
