Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I see this heading downhill in the future. I had some things to say about it but it was impulsive so how about we just drop it and get back to the collection before this turns into a locked thread?

I see this heading downhill in the future. I don't really know what any of the other "complainers" are thinking, but I post to get a feel for if everyone else is going through the same problem I am. As I've said before I don't mind the wait time but I also am aware that many people are still waiting for issues that the rest of us have recieved long before, forgive me if I would like to find out if I should be concerned or not. I don't mean to be defensive but it seems like complaining about people that complain is self defeating.
I received my last order after I was billed for the next. This is the first time this has happened.

I'm assuming they are swamped with orders.

I'm getting the impression this is very popular.

Gee, the same thing happened to me, I'm glad we agree.

If we want to see complainers we should get the facebook posters on here, at the bbs posters are nice about it.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I apologize for starting this. I do realize that this is a subscription so there is a built in wait time. However, I have had issues with my account from the start. I just wanted to see if there might have been an issue like the the selling out and reordering of DS9. If there is no issues and this just happens to be a longer than normal wait, I won't have the need to call/email them.

My understanding is that they had been behind on production, and then had to replace several damaged ones. There are a few on here that have not recieved them either.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I think they're just using a slow shipping service. I called to update my mailing address a few days ago (so less than a week after I was charged) and they said they next issues have already shipped.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Anyone else who subscribes thinking of selling the the Abramsprise? I wish there was an opt-out option on a item-by-item basis for subscribers. I just don't care for the nuTrek stuff enough. Glad that thus far it's the only item from such. :S

I'm similarly ambivalent about the Abramsprise. In the UK at least, Eaglemoss give you the option of contacting them in advance to opt out of receiving any of the special issues. I've found them very responsive by email, unlike some companies I could mention.

You can opt out. The nuEnterprise is a special issue, so just as you were given the option to opt-out of the DS9 issue, you'll be given the opportunity to opt out of this one.

As for opting out issue-by-issue, that's simply how a subscription works. You don't subscribe to a magazine and then tell them which issues you want to receive. If you want to do that, then you don't subscribe and you purchase the issues individually, which is also an option.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Has anyone from Canada signed up for this? I'm interested but a bit nervous about putting $50 on my card every month. I think it's doable, given my current financial situation, but that could always change.

When are we given the ability to opt out? I just got ds9 the only reason I knew to expect it was the bank charge.

I have subscribed, but since they're still taking pre-orders, I haven't received anything yet.

But I certainly hear you about the $50/month...

If it works like in the UK, you should receive an email giving you advance notice of the special issue and specifying the date by which you must contact them if you do not want to receive it. You might want to check that Eaglemoss have your correct email address.

Looking forward to their take on Vengeance. The Hot Wheels version looks even better than what we saw on screen, what with the nacelle supports a bit more swan-like..
