Star Trek KRE-O Enterprise Giveaway!!!

"I have been, and always shall be your friend." - Spock, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

   I've had Star Trek in my blood since I was young. My father was a big fan. In fact, I spotted him once laying on the floor, watching one of the films where Spock was meditating,.....and my dad had his hands in same meditation pose. What a fan! I was too young for the first feature length Star Trek film, and it could have broken me since I had NO idea what it was about. However, by the time Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan came along, I was ready to be shaped and molded. My brothers and I have used phrases from that film to this very day, 30 years later. Khaaaaaaaaaaannn!!!!!

   So you can imaging the excitement that built when Star Trek Into Darkness came out. The J.J. Abrams 2009 version has been viewed many times in our home, by husband AND wife alike. We missed the highly anticipated sequel in theaters due to three kids that have taken over our lives. It came out on video yesterday, September 10, 2013 on video. We quickly grabbed a copy and got all set up after the children were in bed. The adventure began and we both were biting nails throughout. What a ride. I'll be watching that one again and again. While this is not a review, I can still say that we were both thrilled with the flick. 

   That being said........ A little while ago, we were included in a promotion by Hasbro, and received some of the Star Trek KRE-O play sets. My children loved the puzzle atmosphere of trying to put the ships together. The little figures that come with the ships are almost enough for them to play with. The ships that have a unique LightTech feature made them all the more fun to play with. My 'Lil Man helped me put together Spock's Volcano Mission ship (Retail $19.99). It took about a half an hour or so. I attempted the Klingon Bird-Of-Prey (Retail $29.99) and decided to time-lapse video the thing. That one took me about an hour, and the kids were chomping to get their hands on it. 

   And so........ To commemorate the video release date, I wanted to pay it forward and hold a Star Trek KRE-O Enterprise Construction Set Giveaway!!! My children have gotten a lot of joy out of building the sets with dad, and using their imaginations on their own with the finished product. Here's a chance to get in on the action!
