    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.

    I didn't either.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Hey, I got a lot invested into this Collection. More than just the money. So, I have an Eagle Eye (no pun intended) on how accurate these models are, both in sculpt and paint. They are supposed to be based off of the CG model themselves, so to be different than what we think they should look like, raises some questions. So they're in your hands, are they different, or is that appearance just due to the angle or is it true that the flare of the necks is different?
