    Mine is pending on my charge card. Probably mailed yesterday or early next week based on my prior experience. No tracking info yet.

    Ben (as a Christmas gift I believe) tweeted earlier that the collection has been expanded again, this time to 160 issues.

    I chose Bonaventure and Enterprise-F in the poll.
    Quote is from another thread, but I thought it is relevant here:

    Orange nacelle caps is IMO the better fit. It's more unique. But! The nacelle caps need to have a somewhat similar hue as the deflector dish to make the overall design (reversed triangle from the front) work. Since they decided to go against a golden/orange-ish deflector dish and a blue omne instead, they made the right choice to change the bussard collectors to blue as well.

    This shot here, but it's a lot less orange there than I remembered. Maybe I'm just seeing the red of Vulcan reflected in them, or imagining things.

    They kind of just look "turned off" to me. No orange or blue. :shrug:

    The TrekCore review says the NXL-01 is too heavy and falls off the stand too easily.

    Although not the most stable of stands, mine is fine, as for being "too heavy," that feels like a strange complaint.

    Too heavy for the size and style of the stand, not too heavy in general.

    Ah yes, now that does make sense.

    And the Ent-C concept has been spotted in the wild and hopefully Forbidden Planet here in Dublin will have it in the next few days. - Talking to them last week, they did say the Ring Ship (which I am passing on) and one other special was due, but they weren't sure which.

    i’ve had mine on my desk for 2 months and it has never fallen off its stand. unlike the NX refit special which so frequently slipped off its stand that it is dented on either side of its deflector dish.

    Two months? Has the XL-sized NX-01 been released that long ago? I haven’t received mine yet.

    Me too, but it's nice to know that it may finally be getting delivered to subscribers.

    Now that I think about it, the only time I had a problem with a stand was with the Akira. That thing slipped off just by looking at it.

    yeah received it october 27 from the eaglemoss shop, not a subscriber.
    romulan warbird would not stay on its stand for me. the curved under portion was supposed to slot into a curved piece of plastic, which most of the time just acted like a slide. the nose is all dinged up now.
