So, uh, I got one an Eaglemoss NX-01.5. I thought it'd be the same size as the others. IT IS NOT.

It's their "Special Edition" line, I believe -- sort of an inbetween of the regular series, and the XL.

Also: is it just me, or has Eaglemoss just completely stopped announcing new product? There hasn't even been a reveal for the Lower Deck shuttle which was previewed in the magazine for either the Cerritos or Titan.

Well, that sucks. Especially for those who've already shelled out a small fortune for the "Build an Enterprise-D"-kit.

I had hoped we would get an updated version of the last Shipyards book. There were some rather egregious errors in the size charts which discouraged me from buying it.

Eaglewho?

Bless Eaglemoss's heart, but Hero Collectibles was using stone knives and bearskins by comparison. Yes, there's no metal here, but they're also a couple of dollars cheaper for smaller models (though a foot-long Discoprise was $300+), customizable, and so on.

Alas, there doesn't seem to be a custom scaling option at present.

It’s a shame if they are folding, but hardly surprising. I’ve never bought anything direct from them, only from eBay.

OK, I bought one thing - the Borg cube advent calendar. But that was on a whim during a Black Friday event when it was half price. And even then it was NOT worth it. I literally put every single thing back in its box, packed it up in the shipping box and stuck it in the loft. I’ll put it on eBay in a few years.

I mean, character badges (that manage to be naffer than Funko Pops, I don’t even know how that’s possible), a tea towel, stuff like that, really? What they SHOULD have done is put an actual ship model in, for say 24th December. Something unique, limited edition, that’d never be available otherwise. A Prometheus that splits into three. A cloaked Defiant (though I think they did this one, maybe a ComicCon exclusive?). An Ent-D that does the saucer sep. anything with a bit of a wow factor, you know?

Maybe there was a cloaked ship in there. How would you know? 🤔

That’s a bummer. I just ordered a pair of models as a birthday gift to myself (the Orville and Rocinante), and they got delivered the other day, thankfully. I’m glad I never seriously considered that build-the-Enterprise kit, I can only imagine how pissed those people are!

Yeah, there’s, what, about 240 issues? Not sure how far along it was - I was following a guy on YouTube building it, but then he decided to take the whole thing apart and build it his way. Might have to check in and see if he’s mentioned it at all…

I’m fortunate in that a) even if I could afford it - which actually I could - I really don’t want to spend cumulatively about two and a half grand on something you’d probably have to build into a coffee table to display; b) I really don’t like the Galaxy-class. It beggars belief that it’s regarded so mistily-eyed as the greatest spaceship in Star Trek. It winds me up, like all those twats who seem to fervently believe that Dr. Who started and ended with David Tennant and Billie fucking Piper. My only consolation is some of the cunts will actually wank themselves to death that the Tenth Doctor is somehow coming back…
