What do Captain Kirk’s butt and tribbles have in common? No not that. Get your head out of the gutter. The answer is that both have spent time on the starship Enterprise’s Captain’s chair. That chair is an iconic piece of sci-fi and now you can own a scaled-down replica that looks just like the real thing.
QMx’s 1:6 scale replica of Captain Kirk’s favorite chair looks sweet. It not only swivels like the real deal, but it also plays sounds and has light-up controls. This replica is extremely well detailed. It’s perfect for your 1:6 scale action figures. Well, Kirk anyway. You wouldn’t put anyone else on it. Except for Scotty when the Captain’s away on a mission.
This is the best replica of this chair I’ve seen. It has four different light and sound settings including standard bridge operations, ship-wide announcement, viewscreen scanning, and red alert. It stands 8″ tall so it’s great for your office desk, and is powered by either three AA batteries or a mini-USB plug (not included).
Grab one today from ThinkGeek for $99.99. It’s a great tribute to the days when Star Trek was truly an action-packed western set in space. They don’t make them like James T. Kirk anymore. And this is his seat.
