I hear ya, but if what Eagle Moss said is to believed, they were truly caught off guard when they learned the initial 5 issues were a test run. And because some folks placed orders but never got their issues, does lead creedence to the claim that the factory didn't have the stock to fulfill orders.

I just hope Eagle Moss has it all sorted out this time, because I would love to get a complete set. Especially with all the First Contact/DS9 era ships.

It is taking all my self control to not preorder. When it comes out in fall I should have money though, so we'll see if this actually flies.

Well it's not uncommon for a magazine to have a release in one region of the UK to test demand before going national.

As Eagle Moss let the magazine go out, they can't be caught off guard. Someone at Eagle Moss had to ok the distribution of the magazine.

The only thing that might have caught them off guard was the demand, they underestimated the demand.

I hope they get enough demand to see it all the way through as I have a wormhole forming in my wallet that leads straight to Eaglemoss.

I won't pre-order and do the whole thing though. Yes, I will purchase many of the ships, but not all. I can tell you now that I will get most of the Federation ships (all the Enterprises) and a few alien ships.

I guess I could say that out of the 65+ ships that will be released, I will buy at least 30 of the ones listed on the Memory-Alpha page.

Well in the UK depending on where you buy it, some retailers only go upto issue 8 (at most) on part-works. After that they go to firm sale only (i.e customer save), because they can cease being sale or return.

I made mention on their FB page that there was a conspicuous absence of the Klingon Negh'Var class in the Ship List. Out of all ships NOT to do, wouldn't think that would be one of them. Wasn't the first appearance of those in "All Good Things"? The Future ENT-D will be one of the special issues, so I'm wondering if the Negh'Var will be a special issue as well.

Their FB page also has a photo showing the Reliant and Vor'cha models on a computer desk. Reliant was painted. Vor'cha was not.
Now that you mention it, I didn't see the Pasteur on that list either. Oh well, there's ones I'm looking more than that.

Obviously, the image of the Reliant and Vor'cha are a work in progress.

Yeah, I may not get all of them myself.

None of the ships from "Nemesis" were terribly memorable for me, for instance. Same goes for some of the alien ships from "Voyager" (kind of ambivalent about the Hirogen, Malon, and 8472 ships, though the Krenim one might be interesting). The Suliban cell ship doesn't sound very exciting (again, I'd rather have the Andorian ship or the second Vulcan ship). Ferengi Marauder? Meh. Bajoran sailing ship? Meh. I'm also not sure how many Borg designs need to get model treatment. (I think the cube and sphere are more than enough).

I've pretty much never met a Federation or Klingon design I didn't like (aside from those hideous kit-bashes, with the exception the Centaur and New Oreleans class). Granted, most of them have been done a million times, but I'm really excited for the ones that haven't. Really looking forward to those Dominion/Breen ones too. (You could pose them in some neat little battle scenes, if you ignored the scale difference).

It'll be interesting to see some of the never-done Xindi ones and a few other 22nd century ships.

I think there's only 3 Borg ships. The Cube, Sphere, and the Queen "Diamond" ship.



Can't remember where I saw this question asked, but someone was asking what the Prototype Klingon Bird of Prey might be. Well, I think it's probably the Bird of Prey from ENT.

I meant, in this collection. If by Renegade Borg Ship, you mean the one that was in that 2-parter cliffhanger from Seasons 6 & 7?

The collection includes the Cube, Sphere, Diamond, and a Borg "probe" from "Dark Frontier". It doesn't look like they're doing the rogue ship from "Descent".

Again, frankly I think the Cube and Sphere are sufficient and would've like to have seen a few other ships in place of the Diamond and Probe.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

http://www.startrek-starships.com/usa/ship-order.html list of planned releases thus far (22 of the 70 right now)

I've signed up.

I'm a starship junkie. I've got resin models of a couple - the Titan (Riker's) an Akira, a Peregrine fighter - and pretty much every other physical representation of a starship ever made. From the Johnny Lightening to the Furuta Japanese to Hallmark ornaments, micromachines, playmates, AA/DST... you name it I've got it.

I just hope it does well and completes the whole line.

Tell your friends, folks. Get 'em to sign up. Word of mouth is the only way this will get out.

Man I just hope this happens now. I want all those ships. Mostly I want the never-released ships... lol.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Any of you pre-order? Did you get a confirmation e-mail? Any of you use PayPal? I've got no confirmation e-mail which always worries me... :S

We should have a thread somewhere where people can post pics showing off their ship collection.

The fact that they're releasing it the year of a movie (which is likely not a coincidence) can't hurt. I think the fact that they couldn't keep up with the demand initially is encouraging. Perhaps they'll even add some ships to the list.

Unfortunately, as is the case with a decent Netflix selection, Canadians like myself are left out.
