This ship has been painstakingly recreated in die-cast and plastic materials then hand painted with an incredible level of detail. The vehicle also comes with a full color collector magazine. Vehicle measures approximately 5-inches long x 3 1/2-inches wide x 2-inches tall.
The 23rd century Klingon Bird-of-Prey first appears in Star Trek: The Search for Spock commanded by Doc Brown...wait no...by Commander Kruge of the Klingon Empire. The same style of ship can be seen in the rest of the original movies as well as Star Trek: The Next Generation, the next generation film Star Trek Generations, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager and even in Enterprise in the episodes "Shockwave" and "Future Tense" where the image of the ship appears on screen within a database.
Interesting note: the Klingon Bird-of-Prey model was auctioned off during the Christie's auction in New York on October 2006. It was estimated to sell for somewhere around $10,000 but it ended up selling for $260,000!
The Klingon Bird of Prey is part of the Starships Collection of Star Trek vehicles by Eaglemoss. This incredible collection includes all the most significant ships from the five Star Trek television series. Imported from the U.K. with limited distribution in the U.S., these ships are not easy to find for sale in the United States.
The collection features a full range of Federation and alien vessels including seven incarnations of the Enterprise; all the major Klingon vessels including the Bird-of-Prey; Dominion; Borg; and Romulan ships and is slated to include about 80 ships in total.
