    I was charged yesterday for my next shipment and notified by PayPal that the normal $43.80 was paid to Eaglemoss LTD. However, my bank statement shows the vendor name as Gareth Watkinson, not Eaglemoss LTD. as it always has since I started my subscription. Anyone else have this where the vendor name is different?

    That's odd, and slightly concerning. Gareth Watkinson is the head of subscriptions at Eaglemoss. I'm not sure why his name would appear on the statement. I'd contact Eaglemoss.

    Oh, I did immediately but haven't heard back yet. That's even more disconcerting knowing that Watkinson actually works for Eaglemoss. :confused:

    Do you think he might actually be funneling money away from Eaglemoss on this? Seems a pretty sloppy way of going about it, seeing as his name is plastered all over the transactions. If it is embezzlement, someone is going to notice pretty quickly, I wager.

    Update - my most recent transaction from Eaglemoss (dated 9/9/2014):
    No reference I can find anywhere to a Gareth Watkinson.

    My emailed Paypal receipt states:

    Merchant
    Eaglemoss Ltd
    eaglemoss@dbfactory.co.uk
    $43.80

    ...but my bank statement clearly states:

    GARETH WATKINSON IAT PAYPAL 43.80

    Same date of transaction and amount. I've emailed twice but haven't heard anything. I didn't even know who this was until it was mentioned here. I'll be calling next.

    Well in regards to that USS Titan petition, I made a note a month ago on September 3rd that it was up to 1245 out of the needed 5000 votes.
    A month later today it's up to 1627. So that's 382 votes in a month. So that's 3373 to go...

    Yeah, long way to go Titan fans.

    As far as new announcements, they'll come tomorrow at the panel they're having most likely.

    As for new photos, I took this earlier:

    Yes, the Vengeance is HUGE (a bit shorter than the JJprise, but wider. The saucer is almost as big as DS9 is) but then so are The Grissom, Runabout, Pasteur and Delta Flyer. The Grissom especially felt huge and in doing so is my favourite rendition of the Oberth.

    Steamrunner & Centaur, yay! :)


    Isn't the Klingon Augment basically the same as the Raptor-class from Sleeping Dogs though? (which is also out soon.) They kinda look pretty much the same from the pics I can see online.
