The title is actually a joke. EVERY toy line in the 90s went the Mighty Max route, from Power Rangers to Ninja Turtles. You name it, there was a micro-playset of it. One of the coolest was the Starship Enterprise from Star Trek: TNG!
This recreates the bridge of the Enterprise in vivid micro-detail, though I wish it came with a lot more figures. I had to grab a few extras from elsewhere. While the bridge is the main draw, there’s a few other nicely detailed areas like the brig, the captain’s ready room, and the bar!
I always wanted one when I was a kid, and managed to get one long enough to take some ridiculous photos.

This is something of a work in progress, but it’s presentable enough to share here: my custom Mego Battle Van!
Made from an LJN SWAT van and some Coleco Rambo parts, it doesn’t resemble the Battle Van as much as I would like — I would need a nice A-Team van with articulated doors for that — but it still looks pretty great.
I had the choice between this van and the Mobile Bat Lab, but went with the SWAT van because it had a more realistic and military look to it. The Punisher would never drive a 60s flower power mobile.
It also comes with my custom doll of Micro, Punisher’s partner-in-crimefighting! He and the van come tricked out with all sorts of accessories: a roof-mounted minigun turret, a tripod missile launcher which can also be mounted to the roof, a VHF radio set with handpiece, a laptop with removable disks, and whatever other toys I can cram into the back.
Frank also had a slick hog to ride for doing drive-by drug deal raids or reluctantly teaming up with Ghost Rider.
