December 15th, 2021 by Marc Comments

Oh, man, are we going where no Nerdy site has gone before!

The lovely folks at Playmobil have given us one of the amazing USS Enterprise NCC-1701 sets to giveaway to one lucky reader… and trust us, we wish we could just hold on to it, but this thing is a beast an, after a truly awful couple of years, we really want to make someone’s Christmas!

The set is one of the largest Playmobil has ever created, comes with the full crew and has more play features than Batman’s utility belt. It also has full lights and sounds and can be displayed on a table or shelf or can be hung from the ceiling – which may be for the best as this is a beast of a toy/collectible.

And how do you win? well, just answer this simple question:

This version of the USS Enterprise appeared in which Star Trek series? 

Think you know the answer? Then email it, with your full name and address to or PM us on Facebook [here] or Twitter [here] on or before Sunday, December 19th with all those details and we will pick a winner on Monday, December 20th and will be in touch shortly after to let you know you won.

Beam us up, Scotty! Discover the impressive U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 in a whole new light with the interactive Star Trek AR app from Playmobil! Explore the legendary starship, with its iconic bridge and engineering. Interact with her famous crew, featuring Captain Kirk, Spock, Uhura, McCoy, Sulu, Scotty and Chekov. Have fun recreating iconic scenes from the original series show, or set off on new adventures. With a removable roof, the entire bridge and crew are playable! Equipped with lighting effects and original sounds and dialogue from the show, you too can join the adventure of the Enterprise’s historic five-year mission. Dimensions: 100 x 48 x 34 cm (LxDxH)

Who doesn’t know the legendary Starship Enterprise? Space, the final frontier – in the 23rd century, Captain James T. Kirk and his crew embark on their mission to foreign galaxies. For five years, the Enterprise is on its way, many light-years away from Earth, to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone. Now the legendary starship U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 is available in the PLAYMOBIL version as an exclusive collector’s item. Of course, including the famous crew with Captain Kirk, Chekov, Dr. McCoy, Scotty, Sulu, Uhura and Spock in Starfleet uniform.
The PLAYMOBIL Enterprise has a bridge with rotating chair for Captain Kirk, workstations for all crew members, cell phone holder and storage compartment for phasers, communicator and other equipment. In the hull is the engine room with two stand-up workstations. To activate the light and sound electronics, the dilithium core must be inserted into the container and placed in the engine room. Power can be supplied via batteries or USB connection. When switched on, Captain Kirk personally announces greetings. The buttons on the center console on the bridge can be used to control various light and sound effects such as the warp drive, torpedo or alarm sounds.
The set includes Captain Kirk, Spock, Uhura, Dr. McCoy, Sulu, Scotty, Chekov and many more accessories as well as a display cradle and wire to suspend Enterprise from the ceiling.
The set runs for £449.99 and can be bought here.

Competition closes on Sunday,  December 19th at midnight [BST]. Normal T&Cs apply, no cash prize alternative can be offered and judges’ decision is final. UK entrants only.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
