Playmobil recently took on LEGO and some of the massive Star Wars sets in their Ultimate Collector's Series lineup with the 70548 Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 Playset. It was touted as "the biggest and most deluxe Playmobil playset created up to this point" with a $499.99 price tag to match. However, you can order one here at Entertainment Earth for $299.99 with free US shipping at the time of writing. That $200 discount is, by far, the biggest we've seen on this set to date, and it probably won't last long.
While you're at it you might wan to keep tabs on the Playmobil 71089 Star Trek Klingon Bird of Prey Playset, which went up for pre-order this week. Details are scarce at the moment, but we expect it to be as impressive as the Enterprise set. Pre-orders are also available here at Entertainment Earth for $299.99 with a release date set for January. You won't be charged until it ships.Buy the Playmobil Star Trek U.S.S.
