    It never came out anywhere in NZ that I was aware of: so 2 of my 3 EM Trek purchases have been through BBTS, while my first was at my local comic book store - which sold out quickly and predominantly hasn't been able to acquire any more (except one voyager EM model, which I think was a special order a customer decided not to purchase...).

    Also, as far as cash-flow is concerned, I usually only acquire an EM ship once, maybe twice a year - either as a birthday or Christmas pressie to myself! :P Thus far I have:

    The Enterprise 1701-C (Yesterday's Enterprise)
    The Kelvin Timeline Beyond Refit 1701-Enterprise
    The Probert-Concept Enterprise 1701-C

    Next on my lists, pending availability and lengthy time-frames: I plan on ordering the Phase II 1701 Enterprise, or perhaps either the USS Discovery, or USS Enterprise (Discovery version), or the Klingon D-7 (Kelvinverse)...

    I pretty much travel at impulse speed, when it comes to EM purchases... ;)

    Okay? Is there a purpose to saying you have this? Do you need advice on putting it together (which I'm sure others, far more knowledgeable than I) or that you just have it? (Which is cool)

    As for the model continuation past 160, was there an official announcement, or did they just announce it on the down low by releasing images of issue 161?

    IIRC, there was an announcement a while back about the line expanding to 180.

    As for the other thing, best not to respond, historically.

    I don't remember that, I remember that it was said that they had assets upto 180, but wasn't sure if they'd go beyond 160. Which got people speculating on the end of the line.

    Maybe that's what I heard and it's possible that my aging brain interpolated the rest.

    Yeah, who knows. I haven't seen the USS Emmett Till in full yet. But what we have seen yet of her, I love! It's IMO a better spiritual successor of Ken Adams "Titans"-Enterprise than the USS Discovery. I really don't like the Aventine though. It just doesn't work with me, at all.

    I think it’s been a good two months since my retailer got any Star Trek shipments from Eaglemoss, including my orders. Last ship was Baran’s Raider, last DSC ship was the Shran.

    On the one hand, this is giving me time to complete the shelves I need to build. On the other hand, WHERE THE HELL ARE MY SHIPS???

    yes, back in may at MCM comic con, someone on the FB group posted the following about the numbered issues situation:
    grain of salt, but that's the rumor.

    speaking of comic cons...

    according to startrek.com, SDCC 2019 will feature the reveal of "Matt Jefferies Shuttle Concept Bonus Issue, and the Star Trek Phase II Shuttle Concept Bonus Issue" at eaglemoss' booth, along with "reveals" of other ships that have already been revealed, like the XL excelsior, XL runabout, the klingon raider, and the altair.

    quick google search of those concepts resulted in this for the TOS concept:

    and this for the phase II concept (though it's credited to john eaves, so maybe not):

    "with several exciting reveals, including the Klingon Raider from Star Trek: Discovery"

    Isn't that already out?

    Edit: No wait, I'm confusing it with something else.

    I’m not going to SDCC but I am going to the con in Las Vegas starting on the 30th. Eaglemoss usually has a presence there & sometimes a panel.

    I hope to be able to see some of the coming items then & post pics.

    Just seems like a lot of "concept" ships being made when there are still actual on-screen ships that haven't been produced yet. Hard to get excited for these, especially since it's been literally MONTHS since I've received any subscription ships.

    Nice, I always wanted a model of the original Jefferies shuttle. It always seemed more keeping with the overall TOS design aesthetic than the butter dish.

    And I think that Eaves one is in the Phase II book (i think maybe it's an illustration of Jeffries' Phase II design).

    i feel like the concept ships are a pet project of ben or someone at eaglemoss. i know it’s something that was appealing to me in theory but execution not so much. the probert enterprise-c is probably the only worthwhile one of the bunch, even the phase II enterprise was worthy of a model, but the model itself didn’t turn out so great.

    they should expend fewer resources on clunky ass excelsior concepts and put them towards actually getting us those son’a ships, or a decent borg cube, or a yridian battleship, or the kelvin timeline fleet ships, or the
    XL.

    The Linprise would be neat. That and the rest of the movie ships like the Son’na fleet.
    There’s also a particular ship in First Contact that hasn’t been done yet. :)

    Is that the Norway? I think they lost the assets for that, but it's such a simple design that it would be easy enough to replicate. Certainly easier than rendering the Merchantman or all these non-existant ships from scratch!
