Is it easy for you to find ST merchandise?

HMV carries TOS/TNG/VOY on DVD, but none of the movies or ENT, only season 6 of DS9.  That's probably better than a lot of people have it, but not great.

The local Walmart has action figures and all the old movies on DVD, and the new Blu ray discs.

Same with us here in The Philippines. After the new movie, hardly anything. Even the series/movies DVDs are hard to find now though around 2005 they were quite readily available for some reason.

I have no problem finding Trek stuff. In fact, I just bought the new Diamond Select Tricorder toy the other day from Toys R Us. It is really cool, and very accurate to the original prop.

I can't even find the DS9 dvd's

Long Island is a total Void when it comes to Star Trek fandom and merchandise

My goodness, I am LONG overdue for a visit to Toys R Us. I just haven't been near that store in ages.

My local one carries all the Trek stuff from the new movie, plus a lot of the Diamond Select stuff. They also have the die-cast Hotwheels Starships, which are great!

There is a local store, Gotta Have It Collectibles, that has a ton of fanboy stuff...but the owner is first and foremost a Trek fan.  So, the new and the hard-to-find are all in the confines of this store.

pretty much no, except for like Star Trek Monopoly at the Gameboard store in the mall. or if I looked probably figurines from the last movie in the toy section of most stores I would think. But for anything else which is pretty much everything, I get on Ebay.

I have to order most of my ST stuff online, including the tv seasons.

I only have to go to the other side of the country. :sarcastic:

The Magazine and Books (generally) can be got locally.

I can usually find the DVD's, some books, and comics in town, and the local comic shop sells some ST action figures and models, but they're hideously overpriced. ¿

Weirdest place I've ever found anything ST was Hot Topic :laugh:

Books can occasionally be found. And DVDs. But over-all even the major cities in all of New Zealand have proven to be a veritable void when it comes to a lot of other stuff. And even when it comes to books and DVDs.

Star Wars and LOTR stuff is heaps easier to find. But even sci-fi and fantasy as a whole are under-represented, I find.
