Limited-Edition Trek Pins and Pin Sets Coming Soon

FanSets, a just-launched company, will offer limited-edition Star Trek pins and pin sets, with unique art and technology, designed to appeal to casual and serious Trek collectors alike. The pins will feature Star Trek characters, ships, actor autographs, sound effects and music, as well as cutting-edge, patent-pending Augmented Reality (AR) technology. FanSets will produce pins inspired by The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, Enterprise, The Animated Series and feature films 1-10, as well as pins celebrating Star Trek's 50th anniversary and the special events planned during this celebration year. The collectible pins will be priced starting at $8.95 and FanSets will have 50 pins in their first assortment.

One of the partners of FanSets is Dan Madsen. A longtime StarTrek.com guest blogger, Madsen is the former founder, president and publisher of both the Official Star Trek Fan Club and Official Star Trek Communicator magazine.
Highlights of the FanSets launch will include:

  • Limited-edition pins (fixed number production - destruction of molds after production run)
  • General release pins (unlimited production number)
  • Exclusive membership club pins (only available to club members)
  • High-quality construction and technology, and original and impressive artwork and images. 

The pins will be available for purchase on the FanSets official website at www.fansets.com. There, fans can also learn about coming events and products, a special membership club that will be coming later this year, and receive exclusive “members-only” pins and special savings.

Additionally, FanSets will also have its special booth at conventions around the country, including Star Trek Las Vegas, Star Trek: Mission New York, New York Comic-Con and many other sci-fi/comic conventions around the U.S. Fans and collectors will also be able to find the official Star Trek FanSets pins in specialty stores in the U.S., Canada and around the world.

For those intrigued by the Augmented Reality (AR) pins, they'll be available later this year and will showcase an entirely new way to experience fan memorabilia. AR pins will each be associated with a particular 3D image that can be viewed through a special Smartphone and tablet app. When particular pins are collected together, the app recreates a scene from the corresponding Star Trek TV show, movie or print media in glorious 3D, such as a space battle from the Star Trek universe. The app will feature light, sound effects and theme music with accompanying battle sounds. The music begins to play as a moveable portion of the pin is activated.
