Looks like even us in (some) countries where the magazines are not sold in stores can still order them online. Got my Honshu, Reliant and Thunderchild in the post today. First models for me, and very happy with the quality!
Can someone remind me of when the subscriber "perks" (future E-D, Borg cube, etc.) are supposed to ship out with which numbered shipment? How many perks altogether and any more scheduled/ rumored for the future? Thank you.
New update on facebook! none of them are final and the Constitution isn't even the correct material.
^ Very nice. Can't wait for the Enterprise-B myself.
btw sometimes it feels that all this thread contains now is people saying "had an e-mail that so-and-so has been dispatched." Followed "recieved my so-and-so today."
Anyone fancy sharing some pics of their collections? Especially now that most's will have built up quite a lot. I'd be interested to see how different people arrange them.
Are they all in one place? How do you arrange them? ie. all Starfleet together, divide by series, timeline, etc etc
Here are all the ones I have so far. I said to myself I was only gonna get the Starfleet ones, but recently I relented on that and wanted the big Romulan, Klingon & Cardassian ships too. (Forgive the crappy lighting on all these btw, they were just quick snaps with my camera phone)
And some random shots I took while playing about
NX-01 & NX-01A
Two nacelles are for losers!
Some of the main hero ships
I like putting these three together, as although they're not exact, they look more to scale with each other than with some of the others
In terms of display, I've got some of them in my study, inlcuding the nimble ones like the Krenim ship and the Exclesior. The rest of them are in my starships toy box in the bed room. They are great for playing.
My JJprise display http://flic.kr/p/pdtsTw
ATM, I've only got a few displayed. A lot of the repeats I'm not going to (Enterprise-A, Enterprise-D, Klingon BOP) because been there, done it.
I need more display space tbh though... for all my stuff. I have so much on display and it's not enough yet, lol.
FYI the Attack Wing line is doing the Gorn ship from TOS-remastered. One to pick up as I doubt this line will do such. I have a handful of the attack wing ships just because either A) before this line began or B) this line hasn't even announced them (Saber-Class, for example). I'll be curious to see if they do ships like Titan an Aventine, since they're taking on the pseudo-canon Gorn ship from TOS-R...
Also some of the attack wing ships = pretty close to micro-machine in size. Which is just fun for... reasons... :P
I kind of want to do some cool displays. Like I have the Playmates DS9, that comes with a lil Ent-D you can dock at an upper pylon. And now two or three of the attack wing size ships are of a size that you could put them at the docking ring or such just for fun...
The Borg sphere from this line also lines up fairly well with the old TNG Playmates cube, and a handful of micro-machine ships...
Oh to be 12 again and play with them absent feeling foolish lol.
I recieved my first shippment the other day and I am impresed witht he detail. However I could not get the stand to hold the E-D securely. It kept falling off. I see in the picture on the offical page it is supposed to be attached on the rear of the driver section but I had to put it on the saucer. Anyone else have this problem?
Yeah, the E-D is so front heavy, attaching the stand to the rear of the engineering hull puts the model's center of gravity in the next room. Saucer attachment is really the only way to go.
Mine is just fine with it attaching to the rear. It's never fallen off once. I'm wondering if maybe your stand isn't inserted correctly or all the way in the base?
The stands are the only point of contention I've had with the collection. If they don't fit snuggly into the base or grip the ship securely it can be a pain. My Ferengi Marauder has both problems. It falls off the base if I look at it too fast.
Funnily enough the Jem'Hadar attack ship I just got today is the worst stand fit since Voyager. It'll sit in the stand well enough, but there is no lateral security whatsoever. Just giving it a gentle movement will cause the ship to wobble significantly side to side.
Does anyone know a good place to buy the models. I would love a little Defiant.
Since your location says "UK" I'd think the Eaglemoss website is the way to go.
Has anybody mastered putting the klingon BOP on its stand? i can never seem to get it right
Wedge the top half of the stand "pincers" in between the two engine exhausts (impulse engines?) of the BOP. Push it in until it can't go any further and it should be a nice snug fit.
Couple of new ones for me, nicey nice
Also there's some new pics of upcoming ships Here if anyone hasn't seen it.
The Andorian cruiser and the Valdore look pretty sweet I have to say.
From that angle, The One on the right reminds me of cobra from G.I. Joe
Aussie collectors....when is the next issue due to be dispatched from suppliers??
