    I wonder if Mirror-Kirk would get rid of the goatee. :D

    Hey! That’s it! That’s how they can bring back Shatner! When the movie cast goes into the mirror universe, their dopplegangers are the original cast :)

    Here’s a bigger image of the guy, if you dare!

    Space, the expanding frontier (and waistline).

    These are great, keep ’em coming :-)

    ATTENTION! I’ve opened this up to all things Shatner, so help us imagine how different the world would be if the classic role had been won by our favorite costume model…

    This is hard…they are all so funny….but I like the one with by peasant where they are stuffing him into his outfit like a turkey…:)

  9. November 5, 2009 at 10:37 am

    Drew’s actually makes me want to see him in Star Trek!

  10. November 5, 2009 at 11:09 am

    me = Drew by the way. :-D

    I have to say that I like Peasant’s squeezing into the uniform image the best. Something about his cheeks…

    Okay, one of the problems with forwarding links to friends is that, for whatever reason, my log-in got kept in the link.
    I certainly didn’t say “I think he is hot”. Gonna have to have words with Adrian about that…

    I like the fat captain kirk action figure

  14. November 5, 2009 at 5:24 pm

    Oh there’s more. I’m going to have to change my vote to the Action Figure. Nice work there.

  15. November 6, 2009 at 4:52 am

    My vote goes to the international Star Trek poster. That poster is SO un-Star Trek (Independence Day anyone?) that seeing “xxl kirk” in place of the laser causing those waves and mushroom cloud just had me laughing.

    Gotta say I like the Corvette one.

  17. November 6, 2009 at 9:38 am

    I am dying of laughter this is a fun deal! STAR TREK I am glad always has some humor attached to it.

    Holy hell i haven’t laughed so hard in a long ass time!

    The further down the page i scrolled the more i kept laughing :-D

    Funny stuff, Mojo.

    But watch out!

    That guy, you’re making fun of, might come after you.

  20. November 7, 2009 at 3:36 am

    It would be nice if we could find this guy – he’s a star now! I think he would be quite intrigued by the amount of attention he’s getting. The campaign for a cameo in the next Star Trek movie starts here!

    Also, I believe the humour stems from the manufacturers odd choice in selecting an unusual ‘Captain Kirk’ model rather than at the stand-in’s expense. I don’t think he’d be upset by it at all.

    I agree, they have to put this guy in Star Trek oficially now. The “Phase Two” guys should sign him up. Maybe not “mirror universe” Kirk, but definitely “fun house mirror universe” Kirk!

    I can’t just pick one……. :-)

    I gotta’ say… that “Fat Capt. Kirk” action figure is the best and most original. Being a long time Star Trek fan who got the Enterprise toy set and Kirk, Spock, Scotty and Klingon MEGO dolls for my fourth birthday, that really brought back memories. Awesome job, whoever did that one!!!

    Second place to Adrian’s “Right, I ate the Gorn… what next?” which made me laugh out loud. One of the funniest things I’ve seen in a long time. And as a child of the seventies, I think the runner’s up should be the T.J. Hooker photo by Joom and the animated series fat Kirk by Church.

    As far as pure photo-shopping talent, making the image almost transparent, I think the “Khaaaaaaannnnnn!!!!!” photo submitted by Capt. Jon and the Kirk-holding-the-Enterprise model by Mojo look the best. (Great job with the shadows and adding the grain to the image, Mojo!)

  23. November 7, 2009 at 3:49 pm

    I especially like Sean’s and SRH’s entries. :)

    The Tribble one is mine!

  24. November 8, 2009 at 12:34 am

    And he could do Priceline commercials too!

    so far, I’m going to have to go with either, “Kirk on a horse”, the horses face is priceless…or the Mego Action Figure, very original.

  26. 27 Shane
    November 9, 2009 at 3:47 pm

    ok…my final vote will have to be for “Tribbles” by Snazz.
    I thought about doing something with Tribbles, but it never occurred to me to make him eating them…had me laughing!

  27. November 9, 2009 at 5:54 pm

    I gotta cast my vote for the Kirk Action Figure… genius.

    I gotta give the Animated Series some love.

    I’m going to vote for the KHAAANNNN entry by Captain Jon

  30. 31 Willy
    November 11, 2009 at 3:41 am

    They all are good but the KHAAAANNNN by Capt Jon is PhotoShop in it’s best. Hope he never gets a pic of me (oh that’s right … he has zilliaons of STARFLEET photos).

    Props to “Shane” on The Undiscovered Country scene… kinda says it all, doesn’t it? Ha!

  32. November 11, 2009 at 9:06 pm

    Awww, I’m torn between the MEGO figure and the Genesis KHAAAAAAN … but I think I’ll vote the MEGO.

    So help me, the Priceline tugged my heartstrings, too.

    Now, I’m just waiting for this unknown model to throw his weight around and finally claim his residuals ….

    The TUC one is by far my favourite (after the tribbles)

  34. November 13, 2009 at 5:21 pm

    Just wanted to say that RiffTrax has announced plans to riff Star Trek 09. I only bring this up here because every time they riff on something, they always make their own little posters of their riff to fit with the movie. Well, Kevin Murphy’s head is spliced over our very own XXL Captain Kirk. :D

  35. November 16, 2009 at 8:27 pm

    mmmmm Tribbles must taste good!

    gotta vote for the tribble eater!
