Hot Wheels Star Trek USS Vengeance
Hot Wheels just came out with a new ship based on the movie Star Trek Into Darkness. The ship is Captain Marcus‘ Dreadnaught class USS Vengeance!
The USS Vengeance is a part of the 2014 HW City series, number 75 out of 250.
The ship’s body is diecast metal while the nacelles are plastic. The whole ship has a dark silver metallic paint deco. The saucer section has a cut out V and appears just like it does in the movie. The bottom of the ship has a hole in it for the included display stand.
The display stand is basic black plastic with a Star Fleet Federation logo.
The USS Vengeance Hot Wheel model isn’t to scale with the USS Enterprise they released last year, but this is a basic Hot Wheels model and they aren’t always in scale with each other.
Though with a little perspective trickery you can come close to approximating the right scales.
The display stand is also a bit different from the USS Enterprise one. The USS Vengeance stand is slightly bigger and has a tab added to the peg that plugs into the ship.
For under $1 you can’t go wrong with this toy. You get a fairly accurate model of the USS Vengeance that’s a little over 2 inches long that feels very sturdy and displays nicely.
