Kelvin timeline USS Enterprise joins the F-Toys model ship range

Back in 2008 Japanese maker little models (which come packaged with sweets!) F-Toys released a range of Star Trek starship models. Now they are reissuing that original "Starfleet Collection", with one new ship in the range; the Kelvin timeline USS Enterprise (original configuration).

I don't know where that USS Excelsior style dark ring on the saucer came from, but I kind of like it!

Distributor Platz has this set for release in October. The rest of the range is reissues of the previously released Enterprises NX-01, NCC-1701, and NCC-1701-D, plus the two pack USS Defiant which comes with a second cloaked version of the ship.

The original line-up also included a refit USS Enterprise, but the Kelvin timeline Enterprise appears to have taken its place this time. See my Trek Collective List for a look back through all the F-Toys releases.

Anywhere we can preorder this?

Actually, if you look at the Enterprise in certain shots during the movies, there is a ring of panels on the underside of the saucer that is slightly darker than the rest of the saucer panels, so that's pretty accurate. Strange to say that a small scale ship like that one may be more accurate than even Eaglemoss's. Even if it has fewer details overall.

How can one get this in the uk?

The Ent-D looks better than the Hot Wheels version!

JJprise even has the cross-bars over the Bussard collectors, another detail the EM version lacks. Overall, this one looks better!
