Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

The "Federaion" misspelling on the Thunderchild would bother me unless I consider that I needed a magnifying glass to be able to read it. Next up for me is the Galor class and the USS Equinox. I'm wondering when to bow out of the series though. I don't have infinite shelf space.

By the way, the Borg cube looks almost nothing at all like the free gift illustrated on the Eaglemoss web site apart from being a dark grey cube with some faux pipe work and green bits when you power it on (batteries not included).

Well as I have said before, I'm just getting most of the Starfleet vessels, but that's due to more personal taste and costs than shelf space.

I'm already feeling the shelf-space pinch, and I'm only ten issues in. Nevertheless, looking at the list, there are so many more I'll be getting.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Has anyone in the US started receiving the next shipment? I'm expecting it in the next week or so, if there schedule holds true, but they may still be backed up from the DS9 release.

Nope. Charged and waiting.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

No new shipment, and no DS9, yet my card has been charged for both.

I must say that's the one and only thing that's irritated me about this whole subscription. In general, I have absolutely no complaints. They've had great customer support whenever I've needed to contact them via phone or email, and they've delivered high-quality books and ships (mine, thankfully, never arrived broken or misshapen), and yet I find the extreme lag time between card charging and arrival to always be extraordinarily bothersome.

Yes, I know it's in the UK, which is the primary source of the delay, but I would have engineered their dispatch system so that cards aren't charged overseas until they're ready to ship locally. They should know when this happens when their satellite shipping offices are ready to send things out. In this day and age of credit card fraud and identity theft, I always have to make a conscious effort not to allow my blood pressure to rise when it happens, as I know it will always work out in the end. They have no idea what level of trust I am extending to them in this regard.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

That's very interesting to me, it's a completely valid point, but it also marks how much shipping times have changed in the last several years.

5-10 years ago, it was nothing to place and order online, have the card charged (or eCheck processed), wait some amount of time for the funds to process, wait for the product to actually ship, then wait 2 weeks for the product to arrive by mail.

Now, we're used to places like Amazon with a huge infrastructure so I can place my order today and get it as soon as tomorrow for a nominal extra charge.

I just find it interesting, I do agree that them having your money for 3 weeks without a product (or even some sort of update) should be avoided.

I assume English isn't his first language, he may be having problems communicating what he was thinking.

My guess would be "I don't see why anyone in the UK would care about Star Trek, don't they have Doctor Who there?"


Ah yes because we all only watch one show and it has to be made in our native country...

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I actually think it's pretty cool that both shows are "cross cultural" as it were. I've never been a big Whovian but a lot of my friends (and co-workers) are. The Brits make a lot of good shows it kinda bugs me that here in America we have to make our own version of everything, or shows made in countries like Canada have to be "Americanized" before they are put on a major network out here.

Anywho back to the topic, I see that the Abramprise is about to be released in GB soon, anyone have any idea when it will be released here in the states? I'm mostly asking because I'm wanting to know when to expect my wallet to take a major hit again...still recovering from DS9!

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I only want the new Enterprise one if the magazine has top/side/fore/aft etc views of the actual CG model from the movie - I've asked a couple of times on their FB page if it'll be the case, but I take it from their lack of response that it won't be.
