    This makes no sense to me. A buddy of mine, whom signed up after me, cancelled his subscription two months ago. He got the AGTED last Friday.

    Is it possible to cherry pick which ships one can buy? I see several I'd like to get, but I by no means want to order every single one of these for the amount of money they're asking for.

    Individual ships are readily available online from numerous retailers.

    I see the Enterprise E is out of Stock. I picked up a spare of that a few weeks ago when I saw it in a magazine shop in the town where my Dad lives. It's still in its wrapper as well.

    Just got the Jemadar fighter and Nausacian fighter, boy I never expected the Naausican ship anywhere but near the end of any run..., and have seen videos of the two new ones from England, the Vulcan cruiser (So want) and the 22nd Century Bird of Prey (which so many are judging due to a shorter weapons barrel on one side (which is absolutely accurate to the original design).

    After getting extra ships, throughout the run, I just gone and started another subscription.

    Even with some really valid complaints. Fearing Marauder no paint on bottom, Nebula with no aft molding, Stargazer with no rear painting (though on that I actually have no idea if the original model had a real paint job).

    But even with those warts (I really don't care about tiny spelling errors, that I need a magnifier to read), or even the Defiant's reverse decal), I love, love these.

    I hope we go far over a hundred.

    Wasn't overly impressed with the Alt Enterprise special edition ship. Thought it would be more detailed somehow and the colour isn't what I was expected. It's too white and I pictured it more grey.

    Also managed to break my first ship when I dropped my Nova and one of the nacelles broke off. Luckily a bit of super glue and it was as good as if I hadn't touched it.

    hope they get more ENT-E models by January as I'm only 3 issues away from that model.

    I'm guessing (hoping) it's different for us aussie subscribers and they'd prioritise us over their online store. Also did anyone in aus receive their new binder with the Nov delivery?

    For anyone who got the AGT Enterprise-D, was there a magazine offering ship length (I was of the understanding that the third nacelle adds a few dozen meters to the ship) and tech details? If so, how much new material was in it?

    ^^^ That was initially the case with the JJ AbramsPrise as well, but it came in a later shipment. But hell, at least you got yours. A lot of us are still waiting... :(

    Good to know that there's no magazine with AGT Enterprise-D. I saw it on Amazon but the description did not say anything about the magazine.

    There is no Magazine with the AGT 1701-D. The JJPrise was a special magazine, the AGT Ent is a gift.

    Yeah mine came broken I had to email them an order a replacement (which hasn't come yet). I imagine it's a common problem with the Solar Sailor.

    I haven't received my December models.

    I was billed early (11/25/2014)

    Weird, as in recent months I've actually received them before I was billed.

    I wasn't billed until 12/4, which is unusual for me too, as I usually get billed the last week of the month before also. I wouldn't be surprised if it takes a while for the shipment this month, what with Christmas and all. The other day I saw a UPS truck still making deliveries at 9:30pm.

    I too was billed around November 25, but I just received my shipment confirmation email. The email only lists issues 31 and 32, not signs of the AGT E-D yet.
