    I‘m not a subscriber, but I got it off the store a couple of weeks ago. It’s quite an amazing model. It‘s cool that even this late in the collection they are able to produce one of the best models of the whole series. I hope your‘s arrives soon. :)

    Subscriber here - haven't gotten it yet.

    Also waiting on the oddly-skipped Lantree and Xindi-Primate ship, both of which are in the store, as well as the Bonaventure and E-F magazines.

    They're lagging behind again, which is a shame, since they seem to have finally gotten their act together back in 2017. They're probably updating their databases, or opening up a new warehouse or some-such. Every time they expand their infrastructure, everyone's orders (particularly the subscribers) go completely haywire.

    Just got the notification from my comic store. Next week: Tug, T’Pau, Promellian, Merchantman, AND Spacedock.

    My wallet’s gonna take one for the team.

    so, the upcoming planet killer may or may not have an LED in it, or it's really well lit by eaglemoss' photographers:

    also, the disco worker bee (issue 13) is too weathered, but nothing that can't be undone:

    The Planet Killer looks great! Doubt that's an LED though.

    Agreed!

    From this perspective, it looks like it has an upper lip. :razz:

    Hi there everybody, I haven't visited this area of the forum very often, because I haven't gone for many of the Eaglemoss ships. I started with the Phase II Enterprise, and recently jumped for the V'Ger ship. I have a quick question, though, I thought there would be a magazine with the ship replica, as was the case with the Phase II Enterprise, but the package that arrived was just the ship. The receipt indicated that there were still items that were due to be sent, which I guess mean the magazine. I assumed that the magazines were automatically packaged with the ships...does this happen occasionally? My apologies if similar questions have been asked and answered.

    Not always. In fact, lately, they’ve been falling behind on magazines. This is especially true for the shop exclusives and pre-orders.

    Don't worry though as they will send the magazine... eventually. Really it's usually a few months at most and I have always gotten the magazine.

    They skip whole ship issues sometimes, too, and don’t always fill them in until a year later. That happened to me about 3 times back in 2016. Fortunately that’s not as common an occurrence anymore, but it can happen.

    Overall, I’d give Eaglemoss a 90% for provisioning and customer service these days, but that last 10% is still a complete goat-rope, and this is after it’s drastically improved their game over the past couple of years. Used to be much worse.

    Also, get ready blow an obscene amount of money. I've spent around $2600 over the past four years and that's only about half of the numbered ships!

    Yep. I’ve lost count. Probably an intentional subconscious self-protection system in my part. If I took the time to add it all up, it would most likely make me cry and earn me a second divorce for my trouble, for a nice little shit-flavored cherry on top. In this context, ignorance is profound bliss.

    As a collector, regardless of my passion at the time, have always kept a spreadsheet listing what I want to buy, what I have bought and the price I purchased each item at. I even calculate the cost of shipping into it. Every once in a while I'll use the good old Excel Insert Function key to "sum it all up".... and scare the crap out of myself!!! :eek:

    I quickly remember why I don't keep a running total on those spreadsheets, delete it and try to forget the number I just saw!!!! :biggrin:

    according to the facebook fan page, it's been *confirmed* that it does indeed light up.

    Won’t believe until I see it.
    But one way I could think of would be reusing the NCC-1764 paint.
