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*
A lot of these ships are available are available as resin Garage Kits- StarshipModeler carries some in their online store. The problem is kits cost a lot more (the 1/1000 scale Akira is almost 18" long and lightable, but also cost about $200). I simply do not have the time with my new family to build as I used to, the Eaglemoss replicas are a nice way of getting rare ships to display.

You would think Wal Mart would pick these up...
WalMart only carries the very top ten fastest sellers these days. They used to have a decent toy/hobby department, now it is just action figures and wheeled vehicles in a couple of Aisles. I hate having to order most of what I want online now, but retail stores simply do not carry as much as they used to.

I got charged for May's shipment today. It was $14 more expensive for binder 2.

Only the first one was. I remember they gave me the option to opt out when I signed up and I had to double check to make sure I would get them. I'm sure you can opt out of any future binders if you call them up.

I opted out. But just recently asked to add them back on and I am glad I did.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Very cool. IIRC, they originally said the E-E was based off the First Contact studio model, but this article says it's made from the all-CG Insurrection version, which should make some folks happy. I don't particularly mind either way. Good looking ship - the Vor'Cha too...

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Yeah, I think they both look great. These are two of the ships I'm most looking forward to, especially the E-E. My only concern is, due to it being a long ship, it'll be quite a bit smaller than the others (similar to the Excelsior).

You mean Battlecruiser? The Dominion Battleship is a bit different than the Battlecruiser.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Got my Equinox and Thunderchild yesterday. I used to run a PBEM RPG with a Nova-class ship, so getting my hands on an actual one is supremely exciting! Never thought anyone would bother!

Also neat to see the Thunderchild; like any ship that post-dates the old MicroMachines, I didn't have a good feel for its shape and dimensions before.

The magazine with the Equinox asserts that the Deep Space Nine Technical Manual is canonical.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I never noticed a difference between the Vor'cha in TNG and DS9 but according to the article the DS9 version was "more colorful".

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Calling Eaglemoss tomorrow to bump me forward to match the rest of the US. So in two to three weeks will be getting 6 models, it will be like Christmas.

I expect the E to be quite a small release.

I am really beginning to want them to do an Excelsior class as a Special just to get a good sized release. I think I might feel the same about the Enterprise E.

IF the release goes past 70's what ships would you like to see (or shuttles, stations, ext).

Here are my top ten Request. *
* Only list ships that have been used in tv or films. As much as I might want ships outside of TV or movies, I won't the collection first to really mine the film / tv universe.

Pasteur
Space Dock
Regula One / Orbital Facility
The ECS Fortunate (one of my favorite designs)
Deadalus class (its official thanks Sisko model)
Vulcan D'Yker Class (I don't think its on the list)
Space Station K7
SS Botany Bay
Pre Federation Intrepid
Merchantman

Only want Shuttles if they decide to do ten are so.
