I've subscribed to get them all at this point.

The detailing in general is great, and in some specific instances, beyond impressive. Case in point, check out the 1701-E below. I'm actually really liking the magazines too, with all the relevant on-screen appearance and BTS information.

Cool. Each batch I receive does prompt me to look ahead to see what's coming along soon.

I'm also considering getting these, they are larger than starwars figures generally? 4 inches wise.

I'm a little behind on the go, i just recently got the diamond select Excelsior but i'd like more of the ships without forking out so much per model lol.

Do you find it easy to get a hold of the special deals and stuff?

Some of the larger vessels are 5.5 inches or more in length.

I subscribed through MyCollectables ( https://www.mycollectables.co.nz/curren ... starships/ ) who are handling this series locally. Have received all the listed freebies (Binders, Enterprise dedication plaque, Future Enterprise D-Model, Borg Cube). Haven't worked out how to get the associated digital editions of the magazine yet, but wasn't fussed about that anyway, so never asked.

i mean the special issues, like deep space nine, though that is the only one i'd be after lol.

I'm trying to find out which issue i imput if i sub now, they're email staff can take a couple of days sometimes i assume since you have 21, its at least up to there, i'd like to skip 18 if possible, i loathe that ship lol.

I've received up to issue 22 as of last week. Haven't received the DS9 special issue...as you've likely seen, they say on their site that they'll contact subscribers about that. If you get a more definitive or detailed answer out of them, I'd be interested to hear.

Not a fan of the solar sailer, huh? It's certainly the odd one out in being so different to all the other ships in the line so far. Best of luck in your quest, D. :)

Thanks, and yeah last time i was asking them about the special issues the site says Nz will get them but the people i contacted had little to no information about them.
I got all the information from the line from this page ; http://en.memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/S ... Collection
They have DS9 as the first and i've checked online they have been shipped to people (reviewed) as of 2012-2014.

If i have to get 18 i'll just deal with it, there are a handful more i'm not overly keen on but they aren't as oddly placed as this one is.
The site gives info the Japanese version (seen on tv) might get a special release too, which is the version i'd like.
But yeah there doesn't seem to be a good way to order these outside of UK/EU their site is decent, and i wonder if we'll ever be offered specials here. (perhaps they are just planned at the same issues they were offered in the states/uk)

e-mailed their site from two gmail accounts (half way through the week with the second, sunday with the first) and still haven't heard back about my concerns about the specials nz may or may not get, or what i can put down for the starting number.
There isn't really a rush i guess 22nd is the post date and its past this months so i'll be waiting until next month but reply time seems a little long, its a shame we can't just use the UK site and they sort out the orders internally.

I asked the same thing from Mycollectibles.co.nz and heard back from them saying we would not be getting the specials at all, so we'll have to try and find our own solutions to getting those specials unfortunately. It's doubly annoying as I get their Batmobile collection as well and have been told we won't get the special editions on that even after they did do one earlier on. Very annoying. At this stage the best options I can see are either hitting eBay, preordering the upcoming specials through Bigbadtoystore.com or ordering stuff through the US website and getting it Youshoped back here.

As for the digital editions of the magazine, You basically need to go to:

http://startrekonline.eaglemoss.com/

and do the 'Activate subscription' using your Mycollectibles.co.nz subscription number. Then you'll be able to go through the archive of magazines. It seems like it's linked with where the local releases are, so don't think you can go and read an issue that isn't out here for a year or more yet!

Hope that helps!
