Although this product may be just a tad out of most people's budget, it will definitely make a great conversation piece! And bet your bottom dollar - people will be lining up at your door just to be able to see it, much less sit in it.
Star Trek Captain Kirk Chair
Retailing for just under $2200, whoever owns this fully-operational puppy will be captain of his or her own ship! Designed from actual Paramount Studio drawings, the swivel seat is covered in leather while the majority of the chair is made from wood. And this is not just any flimsy chair you can simply push around either. The chair measures 41 x 42 x 39 and weights a bit over 200 pounds.
Captain Kirk Chair
The limited edition chair, from Diamond Select, has a heavy iron base and amazing left and right armrest controls. With the flick of a button, you'll be able to use the red and yellow alerts, hailing frequencies, cool lighting, intercom controls and more - right from your chair! Sound effects that are out of this world include hail, warp speed, background noises, photon torpedoes, phasers and more. And even better - phrases such as "This is Captain James T. Kirk of the USS Enterprise" and "Prepare for attack all hands Battle Stations" are included! Now that is cool!
A mini-replica is included in each purchase. Why not buy the big one for dad and give the small one to your son? After all - Father's Day is right around the corner! But you better hurry - only 1701 Star Trek Captain Kirk Chairs are being made. Pre-orders are currently being accepted.
Note: The chair contains small parts - not recommended for children under 3.
