    Just got my shipping notice from EE. Can't wait to get this out of the box. I noticed that EE has a nice unboxing video that I don't remember seeing.

    I finally got around to unboxing the bridge play set, and I couldn't be more happy with it. I weighs more than I expected, being made completely out of wood I guess that makes sense. The paint apps look awesome, tons of little details. Each of the wall sections is glued down and has a single wood screw to hold it in place. It's very solid. I doubt that I could make a better video than the unboxing on the EE site, so I wont try.

    I thought it was interesting that the box says some assembly required. Maybe they thought they were not going to be able to fit the assembled front of the bridge in there. It was snug but it all fit nicely when you opened up the box, and no assembly is required. The box is heavy duty cardboard and has some great images on it. The back shows all 10 of the available Star Trek Pin Mates, well images of the actors. There is a nice little foil exclusive edition sticker on the back. Mine is 350 of 500.

    I would highly recommend this to anyone that likes Pin Mates, or is nostalgic for the old Fisher Price little people sets.

    as a side note I don't recall how to attach images, so hopefully this works correctly.

    Thanks Ssylyss. Do you know if these scale well with minimates?

    I don't own any minimates so I'm not sure. The pin mates are 2" tall with an approximate 3/4" diameter base if that helps at all.

    Here they are in their new home on my desk at work.

    Thank you for the VERY kind review! I initially did think that some assembly was required, so we added that to the packaging just in case. 2016 was our launch year for this product line. You should be seeing more of these in 2017, along with new characters and product types within the Pin Mate line.

    I can't wait to see what is coming in '17. Hope there are some play sets planned as well. Have you considered selling figure blanks that could be used for customizing? Not sure if there would be a demand for them, but I would buy some.
