Inaccurate. Star Fleet would never allow infants to join their ranks. He has to at least complete Vulcan Elementary School.
It is only logical.
That’s how I kept reading the title in my head.
plus even in Vulcan Elementary school there is no way they’d be wearing cheap crushed velvet tops.
not even velvet – thats velour. Can you imagine how many velours had to die to make that?
someone is crying for the dead velours somewhere – I CAN FEEL IT.
need more thumbs.
It’s velour. VELOUR!
Vulcan infants were allowed until the fateful day of the Kobayashi Doo Doo.
I totally thought you meant Kakeru Kobayashi. Lord knows how big his doo doo must be…
Which, as we now know, takes place in a hole.
I think its safe to say most of us want and need this. Even if it’s creepy baby doll syndrome
I do not want or need it. Since the first thing that popped into my head was Mia Farrow saying, “It’s eyes, what have you done with it’s eyes!”
The only way that doll would cross my threshold would be through its own volition. And there not enough diapers that could hold in my peeing myself it that were to happen. And the screaming. Lots of that.
I want one… O_O So cute…so adorable…so logical. The price is insane though. I’d only pay $350 for it if it was: A) Made out of gold or similarly precious substance, and B) I actually had $350. ^_^’
This makes me want to go brush up on my Klingon…
Actually, I think they confused Star Trek and Planet of the Apes!
I thought I saw a touch of monkey there, too. Then again, I see that in pretty much every reborn doll except for the ones where I see some corpse. Or zombie.
If I oculd afford this, I would buy it for my mom. She’s a treckie!
LOL, double derp. Trekkie
But is she treacly?
oh, yes, the Derp force is strong today!!!

i’m praying you’re not serious.
Anyone who makes costumes for hamsters is bound to have a mom who likes weird Star Trek collectibles. It’s only logical.
And her little his and hers coffins are really cute.
Mom owns about 8 star wars themed tshirts, I bought her all of them but one. And she wears them ALL the time.
I am serious.
I love my mom, if I could afford it, I would get her all kinds of whacky stuff.
Got a problem with it? Bite me.
If I could afford it (and I would have to be a billionaire with a Scrooge McDuck sized money swimming pool to justify the price), I would buy it for myself. I’m not even that big of a trekkie, I’ve just always had a thing for Leonard Nimoy. This way, I get a Spock baby without having to deal with the moodiness of Pon Farr. It’s win/win!
Comment of the day just because you know about Pon Farr.
and for those of you what are having a WTF moment: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pon_farr
But it looks like neither Leonard Nimoy nor Zack Quinto.
I thought babies were supposed to be, like CUTE.
THis is the closest to a baby picture of Leonard that I could find in 2 minutes:
I don’t know… I see a resemblance.
I also see a resemblance to Jerry Orbach. I’m pretty sure that’s just the haircut.
I’ve seen him in a couple of episodes of “Highway Patrol” when he was about that age. It was the voice that gave him away. And he was in a “Sea Hunt” episode that I surfed past awhile ago.
I dunno, I’m seeing a little Lee Harvey Oswald, myself…
Who knew Leonard was into amputees? HOT
Forgive me for this, but
OMG HE WAS SO CUTE DDVLKNADFLKNSFPKNG:LNDFG:L
*Ahem* Sorry ’bout that. It’s probably the influence of the jewish half of my family that has me so thoroughly obsessed.
Cute? You must not have seen too many babies, then.
The boy Nimoy, from his book “I Am Spock.” Pic lifted from http://ontd-startrek.livejournal.com/209960.html
Looks more like Alfred E. Newman, to me, but hey.
Warning: If you scroll down the linked page, you will see…VELOUR.
I dunno, he seems pretty cute for a baby Orc.
The two ugliest people I went to school with got married. Then they had children. We all thought that maybe their folks’ mismatched looks might re-sort and the kids might be cute. My mother called us all idiots and said the kids would be hideous. Mom won the bet. Those kids are terrifying. Bless their little malformed hearts.
Thus proving that ugly really does go clear to the bone.
Yeah, I feel ya. No pun intended.
I get it in the fall/winter. *Stifles self
Oh gods Pon Farr…
TREKKER. But have we “reclaimed” the other term?
my logic tells me this is horrifying.
Logic. You has it.
Star Fleet would never use velour. Shower curtains, maybe. But not velour. This isn’t the 70s.
Spock was from the time of velour
And glitter rick-rack.
Actually the glitter ric-rak is completely accurate. Unfortunately.
Dammit! You’ve managed to rick-roll me using my own illogical word associations!
They’ve confused the Federation with the DOOP.
The universe lacks enough thumps to express my love of your comment.
In space no one can hear you thump.
Mugsy, you never fail to rise to the occasion. (Here’s hoping you’re female; I can’t recall.)
Since I can only give it a thumbs-up once, I shall toast your awesome comment with a glass of cham-pagen. I find it to be the most erotic of alcohols.
*sigh* /Kif Kroker
You mean Romulan Ale, don’t you?
(Except for when it was. Later, in the movies. But they still never used velour. I think Kirk’s green shirt might have been a good quality velveteen, but I’m not 100%. I love the green shirt. ANYWAY.
>_> don’t look at me like that.)
I think they used velour in the original series and his green surplice (wrap) shirt wasn’t velveteen.
I mean, the guy wore skin-tight shirts that showed every ounce he gained, pants that stopped and flared out well above his ankle and wimpy boots, but he was a MAN, damn it, and didn’ wear velveteeen. Crushed velvet, maybe, ’cause that drapes nicely.
So skin tight you could see the ribbing of the girdle they made him wear…
Actually according to Star Trek Wiki:”These uniforms were made of xenylon, an algae based fabric with a special appearance not often seen in the clothing in more primitive eras.”
Who knew my Coi pond was a fabric mill!!
THAT IS AMAZING. I didn’t even know that was a thing that could be a thing. God damn, I love Star Trek. And I love that green shirt even more. I don’t know why, but that one has always been my favorite, probably because it was so different from any of the other uniform shirts in the series.
The dvds I have aren’t the remastered ones, so I can’t actually see the texture very clearly. THE MORE YOU KNOW.
it’s like crushed velvet I thought.
What immediately came to mind:
“They’re eating her, and then they’re going to eat me. OH MY GOOOOOOD!!!”
For visual reference:
You know, not much compares to the horror of reborn dolls.
Not to nitpick, but I’m sure you meant up-born dolls.
That’s a very difficult position to get into if you’re pregnant.
I’m dead, Jim
I’m in between ‘reborn’ dolls and RealDolls for ‘Most Unsettling Trip to the Uncanny Valley’.
For me, this wins that prize:
There’s a Penn State joke here, but even on Regretsy that would be wrong.
Jerry Sandusky – is that you…?
Yeah, choking on my water. So sorry.
Vulcan babies have graduated from the Starfleet Acadamy? How Illogical!
There’s got to be SOME rift in the space-time continuum to allow that.
for the discernible collector…
indeed, I totally agree!
Illogical, yet strangely lovable!
(Damn, there go my human emotions again…)
This is the first reborn doll that hasn’t made me shrink back in horror.
If it looked more like the pic of Nimoy as a little boy above, it’d be the first adorable reborn I’ve ever seen.
Tell me again, what makes these reborn?
Well, the materials that went into them were originally something useful.
They’re hand-assembled from factory parts in the seller’s home to be born the first time. Then they’re packed in a box and follow the long birthing canal known as the USPS to your door. When you open the box that’s been sitting out in the rain all day on your porch while you’ve been at your unfulfilling job, that’s when it’s re-born.
And now, following your frantic phone calls asking for babysitting for this re-born, your friends are deeply concerned about your mental well-being.
Steampunk, you are highly logical. And I love seeing you everywhere.
I kinda want it.. it’s adorable..
I know. I’m not remotely a Trekkie nor am I a lover of creepy baby dolls, but it’s just so…oddly cute. Who knew a baby Vulcan would stir my non-existent mothering instinct?
Why can’t it be duplicated? That seems highly illogical. I’m pretty sure I could figure out how to duplicate that. But I’m a Star Wars person. I’d rather make a baby Admiral Ackbar.
Scotty is still working on the Replicator.
AND I WOULD BUY THAT BABY ACKBAR IN AN INSTANT. If I squeeze him can he say “it’s a trap!”?
Oh dear God, yes!! Please?
Holy shit, those are impossibly terrifying. Except for baby Chewbacca. Still slightly terrifying but at least I can see him as a cuddly something instead of a creature out of one of those B horror movies where the dolls come to life and eat you.
I had a plush Chewbacca and R2D2 as a sprat. Once I took the bandolier off of Chewie, he was seriously cuddly. Wish I still had him/them; I could probably put my (non-existent) kids through college. -_-;;
Leia looks like a baby monkey, and Baby!Han looks hungover. Yet I suspect Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford were probably normal-looking as babies.
That Chewbacca will live in my nightmares…
Baby Ackbar would be an adorable little tad(pole) Or a newt?
Please!! Leave well enough alone. The thought that the hideous thing cannot be duplicated is only good thing about it.
Highly illogical… that these people would “sculpt” such ugly little monkeys instead of cute babies. Seriously.
It’s like they thought we wouldn’t realize they took a gay elf baby and just added an applique to his shirt.
Hey, I thought it was funny. But “gay elf baby” sounds like a term of endearment to me.
Somebody get that kid to a doctor – it’s a horribly unhealthy shade of pink!
I’ve got a little geek girly boner for you!
wtf is ‘reborn’?
Let me google that for you
Sooo, since I live in a cave and missed this trend I just had to Google “Reborn Dolls”. I just had to…
That was a quick skip down Creepy WTF Lane into the intersection of I feel Sad and Disturbed Now Boulevard.
To have your innocence. Consider yourself lucky, oh pure one.
I just wish I hadn’t looked at the Wikipedia article referencing “reborning” and “reborners,” terminology which is apparently born* out of a deep disrespect for the English language.
*See what I did there?
It means they ripped it apart, painted/customized it as much as their artistic ability would allow, and reassembled it.
OMG! I LOVE IT! It’s so bizarrely awesome that if it were a lot cheaper, I would buy it! HAHA!
That’s pretty much the face I just made…
Is that the live long and prosper symbol or is he indicating he’s in the midst of a healthy #2 movement? Someone get this kid a stool softener, make it so!
I highly doubt there is anything healthy about it.
I think you confused “Mork & Mindy” w/ Star Trek, Mork had a handshake. Vulcans just gave a touchless sign.
Am I the only one creeped out by this doll?
Also, does anyone else see a strong resemblance to Dr. McCoy? Especially around the cheeks/mouth?
Looks like a baby George Costanza, to me.
Cool idea but it looks like the unholy offspring of a Gelfling and a Hobbit.
speaking of gelflings…have you heard they are doing a sequel to Dark Crystal? Supposed to begin filming sometime in 2012 with, again, a mix of live characters and puppets.
Good. CGI would be very disappointing.
Also it was ALL puppets. There were no “human” characters in Dark Crystal. I think you’re mixing it up with Labyrinth.
The closest Dark Crystal came to “Live acors” was having puppeteers inside some of the puppets.
I wasn’t mixing it up, I was referring to the actors inside the outfits, like the two lead characters, Jen and Kira: people inside the costumes when shown full-figure. Don’t really consider them puppets.
and yes, I should have said “live actors”, not live “characters”
I find that… oddly adorable. I need a drink.
my husband and i thought he looked like a love child of bones and spock. as for price, these dolls take a crazy amount of work. this may not be everyone’s taste, but i think he is *AWESOME* << (sing song falsetto with vulcan rock fingers salute)
“birth certificate and care sheet.”
Why do you need a care sheet for something you are gonna stuff in a closet?
Um, sadly? A lot of the people who own these abominations care for them. Check THIS shit out:
All you ever wanted to know – and more than you should – about this one “reborn mom.”
I thought the “Vulcan Hand Shake” was the shocker? The baby has his hand in a vulcan greeting gesture.
I have this strange obsession with ugly/old/odd/ooak dolls and this thing is just too out there for even me. Well-crafted and cute but BBBllllllrllrlrrr…I wish I’d not seen it.
Somehow he is completely adorable though.
Not a Trekkie or Trekker, not a collector of these things, and generally can’t afford to be anyway…
…but something about this I like.
It’s after lunch and I need a drink now
Was he birthed with his hand like that? Because that would be another reason I am glad I am not Amanda Grayson.
My issue with the reborns is that frequently they end up looking like the pictures we take of deceased babies for their parents. It’s creepy and in their desire to be hyper-realistic, they end up making the babies look ill.
And nothing helps the grieving process like firmly wedging one in the denial stage.
To be fair, these I doubt are for grieving parents – I doubt they would buy them. And if it’s referencing the pictures we take, that’s because often it’s the only time sometimes that they get to see their infant without all the tubes and wires. It’s not about denial, it’s about giving them memories of their child.
SOME of the people I’ve seen video of are people who’ve lost babies. For some, it IS a substitute….
Ok, that’s super sad and they need help
Live long and pampered
He’s kinda cute in a bizarre sort of way.
wrong…wrong…..wrong….complexion is allllll wrong! Should be greener since Spock’s vulcan blood is copper based. And Sarek would never have dressed Spock in Starfleet attire, he would have chosen the robes of the Vulcan Science Academy…omg I can’t begin to tell you how much this annoys me….*nerd sputter*…*geek rage*…*trekker primal cry*
I think that’s a Romulan baby about to be swapped with Spock.
only oxodized copper is green, yes?
Blah blah blah it depends on what sort of protein is binding and what state the copper ends up in. Blah blah blah, could be red, yellow, green or blue blah blah blah. Oxidation state depends on environment inside the protein.
(I worked way too much with copper in the old days.)
My blood is red, but my veins still look blue when viewed from outside my skin. Maybe copper looks green through a skin filter.
Is anyone else reminded of…
I have an issue with the term “reborn” anyway. It’s the same thing as people referring to their pets as their “children” or “babies.” (Note to the sane: most babies do not chew the heads off small animals, and hork up bird intestines on area rugs, unless maybe you’re Ozzy Osbourne’s kids, in which case, that is freaking awesome.)
In order to have been “RE-born” it would have to have been born. And I do NOT want a hunk of plastic that has been shot out of not one but two strangers’ bajingoes.
I’ve always considered those things beyond creepy and have hated the term “reborn.” However, I loved reading your objection. I’m now picturing a double barreled bajingo firing out those pestilent pieces of plastic.
(Regarding pets, I consider “furbabies” WAY more annoying than the other two because it is even more twee and isn’t even a word).
ROFL “double-barreled bajingo.” Excellent.
And a “fur baby” is that thing my cat crosses the tile, linoleum and hardwood to hork up on the nice, freshly washed rug. I will not hear otherwise from creepy people whose real kids have gone off to college.
I’m right there with you. As much as I adore my dog, I’d definitely NOT pay $40k for a surgery for him….
I’m so getting this. I guarantee I’ll never be left standing on the city bus again.
I totally grok this.
Look! A child guaranteed never to bond or return your love. Think of the time this will save!
Doing the groupie may have been fascinating, but in logically ends in regret.
A 7 year-old girl, a pair of scissors, and a troll doll will give you the same results.
my mother in law just saw this without her glasses and said, “that’s one hell of an ugly baby.”
me: “it’s a reborn doll. get your glasses and check it out.”
her: “NO. those things always haunt me in my nightmares.”
Well, those reborn baby dolls barely look human in the first place, so I suppose this was the next logical step.
That looks more like Lando’s copilot than Spock
NGL, i want it.
Babies don’t have sideburns.
That’s the only thing I like about it.
They do if they have hypertrichosis.
I work in a hospital all day with people that have suffered brain injuries and disease, so I’m generally not too surprised by the weird/off things that some people say….but sweet Jesus on a cracker, that woman takes the batshit award.
This raises so many questions for me, firstly why would he have the same haircut when he’s a newborn as he has when he’s a grown man? Why is his hand like that? To train their young to do that live long and prosper hand gesture, do they glue the fingers together like a Vulcan variation on Chinese foot binding? Lastly, why is he already in uniform? I suppose it could be a prototype for a Star Trek meets Muppet Babies show.
The first thing my mother did upon returning home from the hospital with me was give me that exact haircut. I looked so magnificent that she kept it neatly trimmed like that for the first eighteen years of my life. I couldn’t imagine anything looking better, so I took over the upkeep as an adult. Now I’m 84 and I’ve never had another hairstyle a day in my life.
I would pay money for Star Trek meets Muppet Babies.
aw it’s kinda cute.
That doll totally looks like my ex-girlfriend.
I have apserger’s syndrome and one of my special interests is dolls…but this too weird. Even for me.
