Which is ridiculous, because there is a full HD CG model used in a YouTube video that looks better than any thing in any version of TMP. Look up a video called "Star Trek- A Space Odyssey". EDIT: Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvPr...e_gdata_player It's a full HD recreation of the space dock scene from early in the film from the initial shuttle pod approach and fly around, to clearing moorings and departure to a flight through the solar system past Jupiter and then a jump to Warp. Point being, is that using this model, they could recreate every exterior scene in the film.

I got the pilot run of these last May/June. Good models, interesting enough magazine. Will probably get some more.

Rest assured on Eaglemoss - check out their Marvel Figurine Collection which ran from 2005-2012 (actually, maybe a bit into this year as well). Amazing models, and a real commitment to complete what they set out to do (that was so popular it kept getting extended).

The reports that they needed a new factory to handle production are true.

The reports that they underestimated initial demand was also true.

They released their little test run (like they usually do with the partworks) and somehow forgot to remember that, in these internet times, everybody (nationally and internationally!) can learn about the new series within minutes! Suddenly, it wasn't just a few folk in the SW of England that were interested...
Agreed, as I'm in the NW of England and subscribed to it for the inital run. Hopefully they'll learn the lesson next time that in the Internet age they might get subscribers from outside the trial area. Let alone international interest.

They've released a new photo of several...many models, including the Defiant, K'Tinga, and Intrepid (Voyager). https://www.facebook.com/StarTrekStarships
Damn! They really do appear to be of a higher-than-normal quality I've come to expect from most mass-produced ship replica lines. I'm very psyched for these things.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

New photo of the three subscription loyalty bonus models up: Borg Cube - it's HUGE! (looks to be 6"x 6"x 6", maybe 6.5", I can't tell), "AGT" ENT-D, and Enterprise Dedication Plaque.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Can someone with Facebook ask them about confirmation of pre-order e-mails (and why such aren't sent out)?

(No, I do not have a facebook account. Nor will I ever.)

Do they have Twitter?

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Seems like several other people have had confirmation email issues as per their posts on FB. I got mine within minutes of ordering. Might be due to your spam/junk filter.

Yep, just checked my email backlog...it's from startrek-ships@eaglemoss-service.com. You can subsequently email that address for issues pertaining to the confirmation email or call 0844 493 6091

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Looks like a few people on Facebook were asking about Canadian shipping too and got this encouraging reply:

"we are arranging this at the moment and hope to have some more news for you in the next few weeks"

Well, we can hope.

Good luck. Not much luck getting replies by email. However, posts on their FB page usually get responses from staff.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I subscribed last Saturday. Got an email within seconds. I was expecting to wait until at least Monday for confirmation. looking forward to this line. Now my only problem is trying to find room for shelf space to display them.

Considering it'll be months before even the first one arrives, and they'll be well staggered out after that, you have plenty of time to sort out a display arrangement.

And if you look further through Youtube you'll find several videos from various fans that surpass things from even more recent shows.

Paramount could easily render a new model of far greater detail if they wanted, but so far I'm unaware of them even trying.
