I’ve complained to DPD. I hate doing it as I know the drivers are probably overworked and underpaid but twice in a row and these cost me a tenner to deliver

It was more of confirmation of a £50 price for it. They are also calling it special 20 (after the S'ona) so that probably means it will be sent to subscribers. Forbidden Planet only charge on despatch and they are usually later than when the webshop gets it. The gold Enterprise has January date same as the XL DS9 which is November on the webshop. I have preordered the DS9 from Forbidden Planet for £28.49 plus postage. They might cancel it as a misprice but they have sent out Discovery shuttles recently when they listed them at £19.99.

Ahh that’s annoying I ordered the mk7 viper and colonial 1 two days ago, I would have had the Pegasus as well if I knew it was coming into stock. I will wait for an offer again now

It will be £49 for subscribers then 😂
Considering the amount of subscribers that somehow miss info about the specials EM better really go OTT when it comes to the Gold Enterprise especially at £50 or the fallout could be nasty.

The Sarajevo. It is a a good one. Have subscribers got it yet? The stand could be better. The blue plastic nacelles on the back slope inwards where the stand pushes on. Does not seem possible to push it on all the way, Still should be ok and hold the ship..

I am expecting to see the Orion ship tomorrow in WHSmiths. I am in 2 minds whether I want it. Looks expensive for the size. It isn't really that exciting for a ship.

This is fun. Rebuilding my cabinet and added extra shelves so I can fit the entire collection in it. If Eaglemoss extend the collection again I’m going to cry.

180 is the last issue that is released fortnightly but they are carrying on afterwards with specials and £20 bonus issues. No one knows how long or how often the bonus issues will be.

I can’t imagine they will last all that long at that price.

I wouldn't be surprised that they could just release ships when they want. I did think perhaps they go to one a month but it might end up a irregular release pattern.
I’m not sure but I would guess they would need to have a contract with the factory that makes them so I’m guessing that rules out just randomly releasing models every now and again. I would guess they will have to decide in advance roughly how many and when they are going to release them so they can advise the factory when they and their staff will be needed.

I stayed away from WHSmiths so the new issue didn't tempt me.

Specials have been as soon as 3 months an as much as 6 months and more. I think one was even 8 months after the previous one. They just need to send the data to the factory when they need to with a intended release date.

Yeah but that’s specials and when the factory is getting regular work, if they are not pumping out regular issues then I’m not sure it would be economical for them, means them not knowing how many staff they need at a certain time. I’m just guessing of course.
I would rather eaglemoss just made up their minds to be honest, rather than hint at say 10 extra bonus issues just extend it to 190 and call it quits

They are clearly turning their eye towards Picard, Orville and Lower Decks. Maybe the number are not there to economically justify keeping it going or they have just lost the passion they had for the regular collection.

Discovery collection should last a while too. They are planning to do all 7 Section 31 ships. Unless new Federation ships appear in season 3, the Hiawatha could be the last one.

All 7? Is that really necessary? I’m sure some of them are the same ship with extra nacelles. I might just start getting the main ones and sell some of the background ships I already have.
