Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

My order of the Akira & Equinox arrived today. I ordered it from Eaglemoss website on the evening of March 19th, so two and a half weeks basically, not exactly next day delivery but it's not that bad I suppose.

And I am happy with them, very nice work. It's great to be able to look at them at different angles, so cool. I see a few of the older ships are back in stock on their website now so I might have to order a couple more, maybe Defiant & Voyager

Are you in the US? Cause if so, I'm going to be pissed since the Equinox isn't even out for subscribers yet. But I'm guessing/hoping you're not, and hence they did come out for such, so I don't have to be pissed.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I'm still waiting for my first issue to be delivered. Despite being available to buy from shops for over a week now. Not happy.

Haha, no UK.
My friend at work who subscribes has already got the USS Dauntless and I believe the next one is the Bajoran Solar Sail Ship.

I've just ordered Defiant & Voyager too from the site, and I'll be going to Forbidden Planet later this week and I'm hoping they have the Dauntless in.




The magazines are a nice little extra, I just found it odd how for the Akira magazine there's just blown-up/zoomed in shots from First Contact and few DS9 episodes, and none used from VOY: Message In A Bottle, when you get quite a good look at one in that.

That's how it was here in the states. Normally you get both issues in between releases in stores, so one is early and one late, but you get two at a time.

Yeah the Akira looks great, I can't wait to get it. It's my favorite ship and I'm so happy it's finally getting a high quality model.

I've subscribed but I've only got my first 3 ships so far, so it's still going to be a little bit for me.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

My Voyager just arrived this morning, which to say I only ordered it 4 days ago isn't bad at all (to say it took almost 3 weeks for my Akira & Equinox to arrive)

Although I ordered Defiant at the same time which hasn't come, which I thought was odd as the above both came in the same delivery. So II guess it'll be sent seperate.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Superior to hot wheels I'd say.

Far superior to the Furuta ones.

Most important: these ships are giving us ones we've NEVER had in a physical format before.

And that makes me buy them no matter what.

Because if these don't sell? We'll never see another Akira, or Equinox, or Prometheus, or Jem'Hadar ship or... you get the point.

But if they do sell? We'll see more from this company and it'll tell others we're interested in these non-hero ships we didn't see each week. Flying in the face of the conventional "wisdom" that all fans want is new copies of the 1701, 1701-D, Klingon bird of prey, and so on... *facepalms*

While I agree to an extent, if I'm getting never before seen ships, I want the hero ships made in the same line. If it wasn't for the ridiculous amount of advertising this company has done, I would have missed out like I did on the Furuta ones or the museum scale set.

We get the hero ships all the time in x-versions. It's great that the other ships receive their fair share of the spotlight. Sure, I'm also looking forward to Kirk's 1701 TOS-style, but I can easily wait for that for months it that means getting my hands on the 1701-J finally, for example.
