Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I believe Akira just came out yesterday, but everything in the USA is a pre-order, so Im looking to buy one on Ebay, nothing yet!

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I've got a dumb question that's probably already been answered somewhere in this thread, but here goes...

Are back issues/individual issues available to order? Or do I have to get a subscription? I'd love some of these ships. Others, not so much. It'd also be easier on my wallet to not be locked into $40 a month.

Thanks!

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

They're available for purchase individually through comic book shops and on their site, but stock fluctuates quite a bit:

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Ok, thanks! Maybe I'll see if my local comic shop can order a few. What are the chances of me getting my hands on a DS9 or Defiant? Are they out yet?

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

DS9 is out and listed on the linked page, but is out of stock online. I've been told they should be available again in the new few weeks.

The Defiant is listed on the page I linked to (#9 on the list) and is in-stock.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Just got my third shipment, well really fourth as DS9 came by itself. And I was again very pleasantly surprised on the quality of the models. The Romulan Warbird was easily the best version I have of that ship. And Voyager was my favorite of that size of the design, though here the competition wass closer with things like Hallmark doing a really strong job as well.

Nice that the seam was far less noticeable in real life as opposed to the closeup footage.

What was odd was for the first time they changed when they debit my card 7 days earlier.

but if it helps get me closer to the rest off the US I am all for that. As the ships are starting to get really cool.

It's unusual though that the Akira-class never had the shipnames on them

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

^^^ It is unusual. In fact, unheard of. I suspect it was likely an accidental omission by the rendering team that built it. The only other ship I can think of with a similar lack of name labeling is the USS Vengeance, which has no name or registry at all, as far as I can tell. The latter is probably intentional, as it was supposed to be a super-secret Section 31 ship. US Navy subs have their registry numbers removed from the sails all the time before undertaking black ops. The Thunderchild, however...yeah, it should be there but isn't.

Not a problem. Happy to have helped.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Well, I signed up. So far, the only model I have a slight issue with is the Borg sphere. From what I've seen, there's a stand holder on the bottom and the top of the model. Why would they do that? It just looks odd.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I got issues 5-8 and DS9 yesterday. Going to have to email about DS9. One of the lower pylons is severely out of wack.

As for the Akira-class, if you look at the magazine cover, the Thunderchild does have its name in the pix.

I see you're located in the UK though, the UK are several releases ahead of us across the pond, since it was released there first. We were charged for the Borg Sphere and Defiant a week or two ago, so they should be arriving here in the States in the next week or so, assuming the shipping delays from December/January are resolved.
