Due to customer demand and to kick off the New Year, Art Asylum, in conjunction with exclusive distribution partner, Action Figure Express and it's owner Patrick Wang, will be shipping a "SHOCKWAVE BATTLE DAMAGE NX-01" version of their ENTERPRISE star ship. Limited to only 5000 units worldwide, this item will be available for pre-orders NOW at and will be ready to ship in early March.

"Patrick had been hounding us for some time about this item," said Art Asylum VP, Adam Unger. "With the success of the standard ship and the excitement from the fans for a new version, we couldn't refuse him. With such a low number being created worldwide, this will be a great addition to the Enterprise line overall. I think if the item is right, 'battle damaged' is a cool and unique way to create a variant. The new packaging really ad's a special dimension to it as well."
