Eaglemoss have launched a new website Hero Collector, a science fiction and super hero news site which will also serve to promote their various part-work collections, including of course Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection. In the first article on the Starships Collection, the series manager, Ben Robinson, has released images of the models for issues forty to forty-eight, and issue fifty-two as well, giving us a better look at several models we've seen before, and the first images of the USS Enterprise-C, Centaur class, Intrepid, armoured Voyager, Negh'Var, and Malon Export Vessel! Continue below to check them all out, as well as more of the latest news from the Starships Collection.
this new post on Hero Collector, that the version Eaglemoss are producing is based on the original appearance in The Way of the Warrior, the design was tweaked a couple of times in later appearances.

Malon Export Vessel. This issue, and the one below, are the two most recently solicited, so other images are also now turning up on online retailers as pre-orders come up. The solicitation image of the Malon Export Vessel model is almost, but not quite, identical the the Hero Collector preview, but thanks to 1-Up Collectables, we can see more details as it's higher resolution.
The covers for these two issues have also been revealed, via Man of Action Toys:
the Intrepid, and the solicitation photo for this one is a completely different angle to the Hero Collector preview. As you might notice, the colours are also completely different between the two images - It's often the case that previews for the Eaglemoss ships have inaccurate colour casts, so I wouldn't get to concerned with the Intrepid, or any of these preview images, being spot on what the final product will look like, colour-wise.

And there's more news from The Collection from elsewhere. Posting on The Collection's Facebook page recent, Ben also shared some behind the scenes imagery he's been collating for the forthcoming fourth special issue, the Klingon patrol ship form Into Darkness:
Twitter user Hikari. Hoping to bring this cube to other markets, another fan of The Collection, Paul Brown, has set up an online petition, so feel free to add your name if that appeals - That said, I do believe another Borg Cube is on the cards for The Collection anyway, indeed I think Ben has mentioned maybe even doing it as a special issue, so he can go to town on the detailing.
But while we're talking petitions, don't forget our efforts to get the USS Titan included in The Collection. We've had a steady stream of support which is bringing us close to three-thousand names now, but that still means we need to find more than two-thousand more Titan fans to have enough people to spur Eaglemoss into producing a special extra issue. So please do sign up and share the petition.
