What will the Borg bring you?

With the year almost halfway gone, our attentions will soon began to turn toward the holiday season and gifts for the Star Trek fans in your life. Hero Collector is already geared up to help you make these tough decisions with its latest Star Trek-themed product—a Borg cube Advent calendar.

Its design matches the ominous and iconic villain that has terrorized Starfleet for far too long, but this cube calendar includes gifts instead of weapons and threats of assimilation. The cube contains 24 high-quality gifts and accessories, which should only be opened once a day. And as for what items are included in this calendar set, we only know about three right now, which include a coaster set inspired by the console screens from The Original Series, a pair of Enterprise-D socks, and an espresso cup commemorating the first warp flight in human history (in 2063).  And there are 21 more surprises to be unveiled.

When will the Borg arrive?

This unique calendar will be available in September, but before we get to how you can pre-order it, you should know that each day’s gift comes with a note that details the story and trivia behind the product. And they’re all wrapped and pretty in branded tissue paper. And the Borg cube is perfect for storage and to display your Star Trek collectibles once you’ve finished opening all your gifts!

Ben Robinson, Hero Collector’s General Editor revealed another special detail about the calendar—everything in it is exclusive so these are items you don’t have and neither will the fan in your life. So you can buy knowing this is one gift that isn’t already on your friend’s keeper shelf.

"“I’m so pleased we’re doing this Borg cube Advent calendar. All the items you get are fun, useful and charming. I think they will really make people smile. There’s a lot to be said for that. Everything in the Borg cube Advent calendar is brand-new and exclusive. So, you can buy it for someone knowing that they won’t have any of it… Even if that person is yourself.”"
