    I'm in a similar boat. I am subscribed to the DISCO line of ships and I'm waiting for the next issue, the Buran. I was under the impression the Discoprise wouldd be included. However, I am unsure if the Discoprise will be automatically sent/charged to me, or if I need to initiate the purchase because it is technicaly part of the XL Starships line and not the DISCO line, even though it is a DISCO ship.

    i'm subscribed too. my understanding is that the disco enterprise will be included in the discovery starships collection in the discovery starships collection size (which is smaller) at a later date. the XL disco enterprise part of the XL line, not the discovery line.

    so if you want it in the XL size or you're like me and just too impatient to wait for the regular edition, you have to buy the XL through the webshop.

    OH. I get it now. I didn't realize they were making two sizes. IDK which one I want more, the Discoprise or the sarcophagus ship.

    Might have to double dip for the jumbo discoprise... Decisions, Decisions.

    Well, I heard some news that can be interpreted as good or bad.

    Eaglemoss is finally offering online shopping to Canadians like myself as of tomorrow!

    That's good for getting those few ships I want without paying eBay prices. It's also bad for someone like me who's trying to pay off their credit card. :lol:

    Speaking of credit card debt....

    The XL Enterprise-C is now up on the US Webshop.

    I just got the email about pre-ordering the Enterprise-C. I'm undecided on that one right now. I'd have to wait for some reviews before I decide to get it.

    Within the last week, I got the XL Enterprise-D from Eaglemoss. I'm glad I did because now it's showing out of stock. I saw this model at a con last year, and really liked it.

    I also got the Discovery model, there's a few things I don't like about the ship itself, but overall I am pleased with the model.

    I did manage to finally get the XL TOS Enterprise (just not directly from Eaglemoss, and I had to pay a little more than what they charge). I feel like ti was worth it because it's a beautiful model. That is one when I saw it, I feel like they got it right.

    Just curious. What makes you undecided about the model?

    @Markonian I've seen their XL Enteprise-E, and it didn't look quite right to me. Also, I've heard the Enterprise-A isn't quite right either. I don't want to buy it unless there's hardly any imperfections in the model. I'd rather wait until some people have gotten it, and reviewed it before I decide to purchase.

    Yeah I'd wait until there are some reviews too, especially as these XL models aren't cheap.

    I’ve received the Enterprise-C XL today.
    Not found any issue but I’m not that discerning.

    Funny enough, I also ordered the long-released B and that didn’t arrive.

    Also received Keldon- and Ateleth-class starships. Keldon is a long-loved wait because it’s one of the prominent ships in the Star Trek: Armada II game.

    I also received these today. I loved the Enterprise C. I’ve been waiting for the Keldon for ages too

    I was looking at the Memory Alpha site and the list of upcoming ships and saw the Bird of Prey set. It has a "landed" version I've not seen before. Is there an issue I've somehow missed? When was this version released or is it just in this set?

    It's a standalone shop exclusive. Won't appear in any regular or special subscriptions.

    Thanks! What other "Shop Exclusives" are there as I missed this one and there could be others?!

    They’re all designated on the main shop site as “Shop Exclusive” with each listing. Fair warning: there are quite a few things classified as such.

    Yeah, I looked through it and I appear to have them all now that I ordered the BoP Landing. I just didn't see or hear about that one at all. I wish that Eaglemoss would send an email out to subscribers when one of these "exclusives" popup.

    I vaguely remember something briefly mentioned on Hero Collector a few months back, but yeah it slipped my mind too and only just recently rediscovered it last weekend in time for the 20% off promo code. The Concept Voyager magazine also just finally came in a couple days ago too. Now I'm all caught up.

    That's my plan. You can never have too many Enterprises.
