A few updates from Eaglemoss' Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection, starting with the first look at the Cousteau (the Enterprise-E's captain's yacht), a photo of which was posted by series manager Ben Robinson, on Twitter. We don't actually know what issue number this will be yet, although I'd guess it must be one relatively soon if we're seeing a model already.
Through more formal channels, Eaglemoss have released their latest round of solicitations, including issue sixty-seven, the Klingon D7 class, which looks pretty neat:
previously released a couple of other views of this model, as well as an image of the issue sixty-eight model, the Federation Fighter - Which is fortunate as no new image was posted with the solicitation of that issue. These two issues should arrive first in the UK in March, and then head to the US for April/May, and then other parts of the world as the series progresses in each market.
A new image of the Enterprise NX-01 refit was posted too (even if the chosen angle doesn't make the fact it is the refit version very obvious), which will be the sixth oversized special issue. Ben has released loads of images of this one before, which you can see in previous articles here, and here.
Also in the solicitations was the shuttlecraft set, which Eaglemoss have apparently decided to try selling more widely than just via their online shop.
For a listing of all the ships in the Starships Collection, including links to all my previous previews and reviews, see my index page.
I'm really, really looking forward to that refit.ReplyDelete
Anyway, can anyone tell how the nacelles are oriented on the Captain's Yacht? IIRC, the pylons are angled up when the ship is docked, but move down when it's in-flight (because reasons).
The Klingon D-7 has no windows printed on--I hope this is just a WIP but knowing Eaglemoss, we be in for yet another Neg'var class!ReplyDelete
Why can't the Federation fighter look as cool as the Jem'hadar one?!ReplyDelete
