how big is it. Regular sized, XL or that in between size like the Lower Decks Titan/NX-01refit.
Looks like this week is all stuff I don't want or already have.
Unless someone starts coming out with new stuff, there's pretty much just two ships, plus some Orville stuff that I'm interested in.
I'm pleased to report I finally got a shipping update for the Array and OV-165.
Also the Klingon Ty'Gokor station looks great
crap…MR says the E-F is short supplied. I’m guessing I lose out while one is in my basket. lol.
So according to MR they have 1100 Enterprise F’s but are only releasing 100 today. Guessing it’s a supply chain thing.
You mean the gold plate E-F's?
I can’t remember if I’ve mentioned this before, but I get the sense their initial waves were all of the stuff that Eaglemoss had warehoused in Europe. Now that those sales have generated some more working capital, I think they’re bringing over the stock that was still in China, which is why there is apparently large amounts incoming, but it’s taking months to arrive.
Curious if they’ll actually eventually pay to have some of the better selling ships manufactured again. Although, at this point, I think it’s arguable only the XLs seemed to sell well.
I’m sure the intention was to always get that stuff outta China. But yeah, everything in these initial waves has to be the stuff on hand in Europe. Especially in the case of the Ring Ship and everyone getting the German language magazine.
maybe the fact everything has sold so well how well has helped to speed up the process of getting it out of the Chinese warehouses.
I'm a little curious how well some of these things are actually selling. I think in a lot of instances we may be misinterpreting how fast sometimes sells out as "crazy demand" when it's actually "extremely limited quantities".
Based on the gold-E and Caretaker's Array, I would probably argue if it's an Enterprise, the former, and almost everything else, the latter.
Both versions of the E-F were gone in like :30 seconds.
Looks like the store went live slightly early and both versions of the Enterprise-F were gone by the stroke of 9pm. Oh well... they'll get 1000+ in August so I'll just have to wait until then.
Got a Reliant concept though!
Shoot, I missed out. They'd been pretty adamant that it was the "Valiant" for the past two weeks, so I didn't look for it.
yeah I hit refresh at :59 after and it went live. Only ship I’ve seen sell out as fast or faster than the E-F was the Cerritos.
Weren't there supposed to be XL Defiants and Valiants?
I think it ended up being XL Reliant and concept Reliant, instead.
The XL Enterprise C was also supposed to be today but things changed and they forgot to update this mornings reminder e-mail.
seeing some people complaining that they missed out on things because they were looking for it.
I was confused by that too but erred on the side of caution and got lucky.
They have really messed up on communicating which ships were going to be available this time round. And their Twitter account is getting a bit pissy about people complaining, which isn't a good look.
I kinda don’t blame the customer service folks for getting pissy in certain instances. The E-C XL isn’t one but the E-F is.
as an aside…I always check eBay about an hour after the big ticket stuff sells out. Some jerk is already selling both versions of the F for 500 bucks a pop.
