    The Galor-class, USS Equinox and Abramsprise are available now; my friend just put some pics of them on facebook.
    The Equinox looks awesome!

    Yup, I just received my copies of those ships this morning. I was wondering where they'd got to.

    I could have sworn I read it was out next month, not this month.

    Just found the advert and it says the 6th March, guess that means that's when it hits WHSmith and the like it was out for subs today.

    Thanks! I appreciate the feedback. The OCD collector inside of me is always afraid there is a better product I should be chasing. I already have the Hallmark ornaments, so I'll just stick with the Eaglemoss. I'm eagerly awaiting my first shipment.

    By the way, does Eaglemoss offer the ability to "catch up" by speeding up subscription deliveries?

    Just received the Abramsprise, Equinox, Galor and Borg Cube in the post today!

    The Borg cube has a battery compartment [4x AA batteries required] which light it up in traditional green. Pretty cool.

    Hmm. So that means US subscribers will be charged the extra $40 for the Abramsprise in March, for April delivery along with Jem'Hadar & Galor? Or is my math off by a month and we get the Abramsprise in May along with Equinox & Ferengi?

    Batteries? Too bad. Part of me was hoping the cube ran off of AC power or had a USB so I could use it as a lamp on my computer desk.

    Official release list which was set up to Issue 35 (the Enterprise 22nd Century Bird of Prey) has now set the next 5.
    Issue 36 - Oberth Class (Grissom most likely)
    Issue 37 - Andorian Cruiser (22nd Century from Enterprise)
    Issue 38 - Delta Flyer
    Issue 39 - Romulan Drone Ship (from 22nd Century Enterprise)
    Issue 40 - Enterprise B

    Nice selection, the only one I don' have a desire for is the Romulan Drone.

    So personally for me out of the regular releases thats 1 that I could give or take (the Romulan Drone) and I that I still don't know why it was selected.

    That is, issue 30 (The Nausicaan Fighter from first season Enterprise). Seriously that made the choice, over say the Forunate from the same episode, which is a great, great design....

    Very pleased to see the Andorian ship as that was not on the initial listing.

    I'm impatiently waiting for 9&10. They seem to come later and later in the month. Haven't gotten billed for 11&12 yet.

    Both for me.

    Does anybody know when we're supposed to receive the Enterprise-D Dedication Plaque?

    Glad to hear I am not the only one. Wonder if the flooding has anything to do with it.

    I believe it should be in this coming issue...or is that the future Enterprise-D?

    Got the Defiant and Borg Sphere early last week but still waiting for the DS9.

    Yeah, in the spoiled Amazon Age of near-instant delivery gratification in which we now live, waiting for close to a month for something seems...well...quaint...to put it mildly. Is what it is I guess. :shrug:

    If the product itself was shit I would be mad as hell. But since they've been delivering some of the best models I've seen of many of these ships in this scale (and great printed publications with them), and more to come of ships never before made into models in the future, I have been forcing myself into a state of patience I haven't needed since I was in grade school, waiting for the next day-off holiday to come around. As long as I tell myself it's worth it (and it still is at this point), I'll restrain myself from any angry phone calls and/or emails. If the wait gets up to 2 months at a time while their billing cycle remains conveniently prompt, however, I will be forced to reach out and ask "WTF"?
