Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum are saddened to let everyone know that Thomas Sasser passed away
last week. A professional model maker and consultant, Thomas had been one of the creative minds behind the Starship Legends toy line for the past decade.
Art Asylum first started to work with Thomas back in 2005 on the Classic Enterprise
, and Thomashad worked on every single Diamond Select Toys electronic starship since then in some capacity. His last job for DST was painting and creating the printed details for this year’s SDCC exclusive ship, the USS Defiant
Thomas’s talent, as well as his extensive knowledge of ships from the Star Trek universe, was invaluable. He will be missed both professionally and personally, and our thoughts are with his family.
