    From the first tweet, it almost looks like they have changed their minds about stopping at 180? Can’t be 100% certain, based on the wording.

    I received my Enterprise C three weeks ago, since then I’ve picked up the Defiant, and ordered the Reliant, and just now the Equinox.
    I think I may have a problem...

    Just prior to that he tweeted the following: "The main Trek ships collection is ending at 180 but we aren't done."

    My guess is that he means some of the "missing" ships will be produced at the regular collection size point, so they'll fit in with the existing ones - versus being one of the larger (Special Edition/Disco/XL) sizes.

    So, probably listed as “Shop Exclusives” then, as others have been in that size, but not a part of the main line.

    At the Birmingham convention last year, the idea seemed to be that the main collection ends at 180. But ships of that size still get made as usual, just sold as Bonus Editions. Because it isn’t economic anymore to release two regular ships per month. It puts less pressure on the company if they can do it at their own pace, like once a month or maybe a bit less once in a while.

    I like that plan. Easier on the wallet and gives me time to catch up.

    Going past #180? Wake me when they do the ST Beyond 1701-A.

    I ordered the D5 concept and the Cardassian weapon platform last week and I got an email saying they finally shipped. I also ordered a 23rd century Romulan BOP off eBay from someone in the UK. (I've learned not to order things from the US, as I get a nasty surprise of the mailman demanding more money at the door).

    And I'm reminded why I so rarely order things online. I hate waiting.

    Got news that my XL Enterprise J is on it’s way. Looking forward to that one.
    Also got an email saying that because of the crisis, they will be fast tracking the next few Discovery ships. That’s a welcome change. Might actually get caught up with the rest.

    I want to see if it's worth getting. I have the regular size Enterprise-J

    I hear it’s just an blown up model of the small one but that doesn’t bother me much. I just think it’ll look better bigger; compared to the smaller models of the other Enterprises.

    Many have speculated that in the past, but most of the XL's they've made are clearly different models - some better than the smaller ones, some not so much.

    The J is the only Eaglemoss reg Enterprise I haven't bought (although this new cage one may be added to that list). I just hate that ship.

    Up until only a few months ago I would have agreed. But since I started flying one in STO, :eek: I ain't ever going back. That thing is a monster!

    The model is pretty good. Some of the joining seams are pretty obvious but I’m happy overall. The “J” seems to be missing on the registry. I don’t know if that is intentional or not.
