Starships Collection's Saber, Romulan Bird of Prey, Tactical Cube, and USS Kelvin

Three more issues of The Official Starships Collection have been solicited, giving us three new images of issues fifty-seven to fifty-nine: The Saber class, 23rd century Romulan Bird of Prey, and Borg Tactical Cube. Continue below to check them out, plus some new images of the USS Kelvin model.




As is ever the case with these preview images, there is a weird colour cast. This is the first time we've seen the final form of the Bird of Prey, but you can see some other images of the Saber class and Tactical Cube in previous reports, here, and here. There covers for those two issues have also been previewed, while the Romulans are apparently cloaked for now!


Meanwhile over on Twitter, The Collection's manager, Ben Robinson, posted a few photos of the USS Kelvin, which will be coming sometime in the future as the fifth over0sized special issue.




For a listing of all the ships in the Starships Collection, including links to all my previous previews and reviews, see my index page.

Looks good. A shame the Saber isn't more detailed. I'd love it if the forward shuttlebays were more visible. But with metal, I guess they really can't mold fine details very well.

And I'm a bit... uncertain on the Romulan BoP. It doesn't look quite right to me... maybe some of that has to do with the lighting, but it also seems weird that the big gap between pieces is on the top of the "saucer" rather than the bottom.

Also, if anyone hasn't seen it, here's a good (recent) interview w/ Ben Robinson re: the collection: http://trekclivos79.blogspot.co.uk/2015/07/celebrating-50-with-ben.html
