Re: USS Titan in The Official Starships Collection

Question for subscribers...

What's the cost per model after all the introductory and bonus stuff is ignored?

$20 US? more?

I'm charged $43.80 USD per month for 2 ships (+ magazines) including shipping so roughly $22 USD per ship. They really are very nice, detailed models for their size. Better than anything I've seen except for high end models.

I get mine at my local comic book store, and I pay a flat $20 (plus tax) for each ship. (The nice thing about going through them is that I can pick and choose.)

Re: USS Titan in The Official Starships Collection

I would SO LOVE seeing my Titan added to the collection. SO please please get as many signatures as you can. I would also love seeing the Aventine, the NX-Refit, and the Enterprise-F added to the collection as well.

I can only second all of the above.

Really? That's three Galaxy classes and one Sabre class... and we've already got the Enterprise-D, and a Sabre is apparently provisionally on the list already. I'd much rather see new designs each month, rather than just have them stick different names and registries on models they've already produced.

Re: USS Titan in The Official Starships Collection

Ooh yes Da Vinci! Make me a Sabre class!

I feel like the 'star' ships from all the continuing books series should get a model, if we're going for the Titan (even if the Titan is the only one that's actually canon-ish). But as you say, that seems a bit pointless if they're just the same model with a different name painted on it.

At least Titan, Aventine and Da Vinci would be so-far-unique designs.

How about a model of the Vanguard station? or of the new DS9?

8of5, great interview; thanks for sharing that with us.

Question for you folks; I have been ordering the ships via my local comic book store as I am ending up getting only about every other one (a tad pricey to acquire them all, and there are many I'm not interested in), but for those of you ordering directly through Eaglemoss, what number are they up to? The most recent one I can acquire is the Enterprise-E, though I can order a few more numbers past it (up to but not including the Oberth). One of you mentioned the Prometheus, but I didn't know if that meant it was being ordered, or if you had it in hand already.

Additionally, I am of the understanding that if you order 12 ships, you get the 3-nacelled Enterprise-D from "All Good Things". But is that 12 straight ships via subscription, or just 12 ships ordered in any order through Eaglemoss?

Thanks for any tips in the right direction, folks.
I'm doing pretty much the same, getting all the Fed ships, at the moment I have 13 of the regular ones and the two specials and will be getting the Vengeance when that's out at somepoint in the future. Any, I have no idea what they're upto outside here, but I did see yesterday issue 27 and the Enterprise Era Romulan Bird of Prey.

As for the Enterprise from All Good Things, you need to be a subscriber for it and to be honest, the one I've seen, it's not that great.

And yes, I also signed up for the Titan if and when it ever gets made.

There is a thread up in General Trek that was created to discuss the collection, I don't really follow it though, just seems to be people discussing if they got emails, deliveries and Eaglemosses supposedly bad customer service.
Saw this after I posted some more detailed questions in the Gen Trek discussion thread, Dimesdan; thanks for the reply.

Are these models made of plastic? Or do they have metal components?

They consist of metal and plastic. The hulls are mostly metal, the nacelles and pylons often plastic.
