    About 2 more weeks until the US starts getting theirs. And I'm waiting with bated breath

    I've not seen anything from TOS in their line-up. Then again, most TOS ships have both A) been done to death and beyond X infinity and B) where so detail-less by modern standards that they're pretty silly when done.

    The less re-tread we get in this line, the better, IMHO. I have no need for yet ANOTHER of the TOS 1701, Romulan Warbird, or D7 battle cruiser. I have 12 variants of each as is!

    I would like the D7 and Romulan Bird-of-Prey from TOS. The Romulans are my favorite aliens in Star Trek, so I would like to have all of their ships.

    I was at my local comic book store on Sunday and they had Eaglemoss' Batmobile collection for sale. They were really nice quality in person. So I'm hoping that the pictures of the starships are doing the actual models justice.

    Only 8 more days!

    I believe that the TOS 1701, Romulan Bird-of-Prey, and the D7 were on the early provisional list. As well as that big yellow ball ship with all the bubble parts that make up the ship. Why this ship I have no idea. A Doomsday Machine would be more appropriate I think.

    EDIT: Those models were listed as "Specials"...except the 1701. Whether or not it remains on the ultimate list is anybody's guess.

    According to MΑ, the 23rd century Romulan BoP, Fesarius ("that big yellow ball ship") & TOS 1701 were on the early list (although the TOS-E was after the both the TMP-Enterprise AND Enterprise-A!), while Botany Bay, D7 and Antares (TOS-R only, based on TAS cargo drone) have been mentioned since.

    There are no TOS ships in the final list of the first 30 issues though, only movie-era, TNG-era and ENT-era (with the ENT Romulan BoP moved waay up, ahead of the TOS version, interestingly).

    [As for Doomsday Machine, I wonder if that was intended to be a Special, and has been put back since, after DS9, those are going to be mostly used for JJverse ships rather than Big Stuff.]

    According to Memory Alpha, three more issues have been added to the confirmed list of 30+. The Valdore Class (Romulan ship from Nemesis), Hideki Class (the other Cardassian ship), and the Runabout.

    AWESOME!!! If they're adding new stuff the run, I still hold out hope for the Centaur and a couple others.

    They pretty much confirmed Centaur in a FB comment. I posted a screenshot earlier in the thread, I think.

    You do know that the run of this collection was 70+ (+ "Specials"), right? Those extra 3 I named are just issues that they have confirmed the order of. I think by the time this collection is done, I would be surprised if it doesn't go above 100.

    Watch this page for Issue News:
    http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Star_Trek:_The_Official_Starships_Collection

    There's at least another 20 models (over the 70) that are or may get made.

    Anybody in the US receive their subscription number via email yet? I just want to know if I should worry.

    I doubt that you will receive the number until the release date. That's how it worked here.
