Though I’m not able to pick up as many new LEGO sets as I want to these days due to time and money, I have found this past year that I’m torn between picking up new building brick sets by the additional choices offered by KRE-O. Should I grab that LEGO Universal Monsters inspired set or the Transformers KRE-O set? Tough choices to be made in the toy aisle to determine what will be displayed on my shelf.
Now the choice is about to get a wee bit harder thanks to the option of building my very own KRE-O U.S.S. Enterprise and that is not the only set that will be offered from the upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness line.
From the Press Release: KRE-O STAR TREK U.S.S. ENTERPRISE Building Set
(Ages 9 years & up /Approx. Retail Price: $69.99/Available: May 2013)
Explore the final frontier with the crew of the U.S.S. ENTERPRISE, the iconic ship from the STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS movie. Inspired by the ship featured in the film, the KRE-O STAR TREK U.S.S.

Kids and fans alike will be excited to join KREON figures of CAPTAIN KIRK, SPOCK, and DR. MCCOY on the bridge to defend against two villain KREON figures.
