I was charged for the next two issues, so we should be seeing the shipment here in the next week or so.

Prometheus has landed.

Does somebody have picturs of the Krenim weapon ship? On the few public images, there's no view straight onto the bow.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

It's being reported that they announced at the Vegas Convention last week that Eaglemoss has expanded their initial 50-issue estimate to 90-issues

The current plan is to do 90 total ships with Eaglemoss (instead of the original plan of 50).

That's odd... I thought the plan was always 70ish ships...

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Got charged this morning for the regular issues this month. Hopefully we don't see another delay in the subscriber gift (AGT E-D) and I can get a 4 ship shipment next week.

Yeah, all I knew about 50 was that they moved the TOS Enterprise from 69 to there. Well, at least we have a new solid number; and it increases the chances they decide to do models of the big ships like V'Ger and Gotmoo.

That's what I gathered. But I'll take 90

It was more like they had three catagories, "definitely", "maybe" and "if we sell enough we'll consider it".

There were about 50-70 solid entries on the list with other provisional ones. But it looks like sales are good enough for them to go ahead with their entire list now.

Exactly this. Both the Eaglemoss and Memory Alpha sites had split up the list into different categories.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I hope they don't squander the opportunity with a bunch of the random ships-of-the-week from Voyager. Although the Assan Racer from "Drive" which is clearly a direct rip of a Cylon Raider (right down to the double pentagon symbol) would be acceptable.

Out of curiosity, what would you like to see? It seems like TOS, the Movies, and TNG only used a handful of ships, many of which have already been released or are already in the works.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Had to go back to see exactly what they were doing. These are what I would like to see, based on what they haven't listed:...to name a few.

I could probably do without all the odd DS9 frankenfleet kitbashes, but I would still prefer them to many of the random, and sometimes repetitive, Delta Quadrant flotsam we saw every week. I was always more partial to practical miniatures over CG anyways...

I wouldn't mind those ugly kitbashes. I love the Centaur design and some of those other ships would be interesting "oddities" to collect.

I haven't looked at any of the lists in a while, but where there any Kazon ships being planned?
