    Same for me. Got billed late November, got the shipping email for December's models today, but no shipping info on the free gift yet.

    Just got my shipping email stating issues 24 & 25 are on the way and it includes the AGT E-D.

    Just got my Valdore & Runabout - beautifully done models, but no AGT E-D. Email inquiry has been sent. Will let you all know what I hear back.

    UPDATE: Okay, for all those in the US who have NOT gotten their AGT Enterprise-D yet, you should probably contact their customer service department, as you apparently should have gotten it by now. Here is the response from my email I recently sent:
    Don't know what's going on, but there it is. Sounds like somebody dropped the ball somewhere along the way, but they appear to be taking steps to fix it. Another thing I noticed is that their US customer service email has changed. It used to be "startrekus[at]eaglemoss-service[dot]com" and it's now "startrek-shipus[at]eaglemoss-service[dot]com". Don't know if that is significant, but those who wish to give them a shout should note the difference. Will let you all know if/when I get it.

    As a side note, I did notice that the response time for this email was MUCH faster than previous emails I've sent in the past. They may be really trying to fill in some service gaps they had and the missing AGT E-D may have been an artifact of that. Still very happy with the series otherwise - this was one frustrating glitch for many of us, but certainly not a show-stopper, IMO.

    Picked up the Ent era Klingon Bird of Prey today. A great little model, with the emphasis on little. I mean, ok, its not tiny, but it is on the smaller side. It does have the wings down though so that probably added some verticality which limited its ability to fit in the box.

    I've been wanting a model of this ship since I first saw it though, so its great to finally have one. :)

    Received issues 24 (Xindi) and 25 (Prometheus) today. AGT 1701-D was included and I think it looks great. It keeps a lot of the great detail from the original Issue One release with the added bits and pieces. The Xindi ship is pretty big compared to most other ships so far besides the Solar Sail. I was a little disappointed in the Prometheus as the bottom had little detailing compared to other Federation ships from the collection.

    My favorite so far are both Enterprise Ds (very detailed, know why this was the 1st issue), Nebula (love the design), NX-01 (not my favorite design but again very detailed), and Krenim (just so different than any other ST model).

    The ones I'm most disappointed with are Borg Sphere (boring ball), Enterprise E (is just way too tiny), and the DS9 Special (was hoping this would be bigger).

    Over all I am VERY PLEASED with this model line and plan to keep going!

    Because they look like Birds of Prey?

    I picked up the 2150s Klingon BOP on Thursday btw. I wouldn't mind if it were a little bit bigger, but still a nice cool model

    Do the wings on the Klingon BoP adjust to the various flight settings, or fixed at the 45-ish-degree angle?

    So is the AGT Ent-D finally coming with this Valdore/Runabout shipment? Because my email did not mention the ship.

    I and most others had to send a message to STSS. I PM'd them on their FaceBook as I normally and asked them when I might receive it. Apparently everyone who does gets the same reply, that it should have already gotten to them and they'll send out another that you'll receive within 10 days. Then I received the AGT Enterprise in a separate smaller box aside from my Valdore and Runabout but got them the same day. So if you haven't gotten it yet, PM them on Facebook with your subscriber ID.


    No, on neither of the BoPs do the wings move.

    We only ever saw the ENT BoP with its wings down on the show anyway; it was never shown in flight mode (though I presume it could)

    I believe you're right, but we did see it "flex" it's wings in STID, right?

    Darn. Well, thanks for letting me know. Especially so I didn't accidentally damage my BoP when it arrives, seeing if the wings move. Sometimes Mongo not know his own strength...
