If this had been made about 15 years ago (as part of the Fact Files collection, for instance) I would have been all over it. They had a stall at a recent con in London and the models looked decent enough. About the same quality as the Johnny Lightning ones, but at a slightly larger scale from what I recall.
It's nice that they're covering the more obscure ships as well, but good luck to the poor sod who has to find more than two sentences to pad out the Valdore's issue. How much is there really to say about some of those?
I didn't notice the Nova variant was actually the future Rhode Island refit, with the filled-in nose and more developed nacelles. I really enjoy that version over the Equinox, so that's a win-win.

What's wrong with the Warbird? It looks like it's based of the second model because it's got those whatsits on the nacelles, but I can't see any other issues.
They do address the scale issue, and I kinda agree. You either do things to scale and have tiny BOPs and huge Warbirds, or you ignore scale so all the ships can be nicely detailed.

It isn't as though I haven't met a lot of people. Goodness knows it isn't that. It isn't just that... it isn't... it's... it's despicable.
