Post by caboose » Fri Aug 23, 2013 10:49 am

Hey guys

Just saw issue 1 in my local post office for £1.99

The Enterprise D model is very nice!
Its too expensive for me to buy monthly but there are a few issues I may get.

Just picked up issue 2, the model is low on the detail but the original from the movie wasnt exactly detailed.

I thought the same. But still, it looks fairly good! I can't wait for Voyager! Or is it Defiant first?

If they did the Connie Refit, it wouldn't be very logical for them to do the Ent-A would it? Since it was the same ship...

i found a list that had the ENT A on it.
Same class of ship, but it wasnt the same ship (as that was blown up in the 3rd star trek movie).
The model would be identicle but with an A on the registry :p

yeah, that's one of the good ones.

I subbed to get all the prizes through the Galaxy-X, but then I cancelled my sub when I saw that my local comic book store and local hobby shop both had them for sale. So much for an exclusive subscription prize. Plus, I'd gotten all the ships I liked already, I haven't even taken the last half dozen or so out of the boxes, because I started running out of shelf space.

I had been reviewing them monthly on BCC, before it went down, but my opinion of the models in general was mixed, some of them were good, like the Galaxys, and the NX-01, but some were really low quality, like the connie refit. What issue is the NX refit? I may have to find that one.

Special edition one, It is the issue that just came out I believe...
And yeah, the Connie refit is meh, as is the Connie itself. The NX is lovely, as is the D and E. Voyager is a bit of alright too, and I do like the Defiant. Ent C is okay too. Phoenix is not the best...
