I got the impression that they concentrated most of their budget on making the physical ships. Which is fine by me.

The model is bigger than the Furuta models & slightly smaller than the Gorgi Ent-D.

Very impressed although £10.99 a fortnight is quite a lot. Would rather pick the editions I want rather than having to subscribe to the entire collection.

It's the way part works, your only option otherwise to see if any become available on ebay.

The Hot Wheels Ent D had the best saucer profile of any offering at any size. It is very easy to get the galaxy class too flat up top.

How did you go about doing that? Is it on their website or did you contact them or just go in store?

I was going to go into my local WHSmith or comic shop and ask if they'll have them all in as I don't plan on spending 240ish quid a year on this as only interested in the main Starfleet vessels.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I'm using the main FPUK website, not the international one. They have each issue listed separately either to purchase or pre-order.

http://forbiddenplanet.com/106811-st...ise-ncc-1701d/

The other regionally specific sites and the international one should offer them as well.

Had the 1st issue loving it but £240 a year is expensive and the magazine is only 18 pages long. But I'm nor moaning to much the the die cast model is pretty good better than jonny lightning or futura ships ?? IMO anyway.

I've decided to choose and pick which ones i want !!! But might even subscribe yet as well waiting for issue 2 see what the movie E looks like ???
US price is $20 per issue. ($40 per month = $480 per year) Which is about the average price of a Blu-ray. So I figure if you can afford 2 Blu-rays per month, then this collection ain't bad. Hell, I spend around $600 per month or so on Blu-rays, CDs, Facebook Credits, and Google Play (Android) purchases. So I just have to budget in that extra $40.

Have you guys seen Issue #7 Klingon K'Tinga?


Issue #6 Voyager doesn't look too bad either.

If ordered directly from Eaglemoss, the US release date Oct.9th. So for all those in the US checking their mail boxes daily...relax...we still have 6 weeks left.

I've just got my USS Yamoto made by jonny lighting on the left and the new magazine die cast model to the right I assumed that both would be the same size but as you can see they are not.
Is it my imagination or does the neck of the Eagle Moss model look too thin in the back. It doesn't flare as much as your Jonny Lightning one.
