All Hands, This is the Captain...

Diamond Select Toys is excited to announce by far the largest collectible this side of the Neutral Zone, the classic Star Trek Captain's Chair replica! That's right, Captain Kirk's instantly recognized command chair from the bridge of the U.S.S. Enterprise can finally be yours!

This iconic sci-fi release measures an astonishing 3 1/2 feet wide by 3 1/4 feet deep and stands just under 3 1/2 feet tall. The chair itself is constructed of high-quality fiberglass and features plastic, metal and wooden accents to recreate the legendary original prop. Highlights include a newly-engineered base to allow full 360° rotation, a leather seat cover, working indicators and switches as well as your favorite sound effects from the classic Star Trek series!

Detailed schematics of the Captain's Chair supplied by Paramount were used to iron out the various chair designs and create the ultimate Star Trek lifestyle accessory. The right-hand console includes settings for Yellow and Red Alert, Pod Jettison, Micro Tape and the ship's Intercom while the left-hand panel features Hailing Frequencies, Viewscreen Activation and Shuttle Operation controls - each with sound effects or light-up details.

This impressive piece can be ordered through any comic book store and will ship in two pieces. Due to varying shipping costs and the size of this item, we strongly encourage interested customers to request a shipping estimate from their retailer of choice prior to purchasing this item.
