Star Trek fans who beamed into Las Vegas earlier this month for the 2017 Official Star Trek Convention were among the first to wrap their hands around the largest starships ever produced by Eaglemoss Collections, as the first three Official Star Trek Starships XL Editions left their docking bays.
Created in response to fan demand, each ship is approximately twice as large as the starships featured in Eaglemoss’ more than 100-vessel strong Official Star Trek Starships Collection. Offering the ultimate in detail and craftsmanship, every XL Edition has gone through extensive reference study and has been reproduced under the supervision of Star Trek expert Ben Robinson to ensure pinpoint accuracy.
The first XL Edition is the beloved U.S.S. Enterprise NC-1701-D, coinciding with the 30th anniversary
celebration of the airing of the first episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Up next is the iconic
U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 from Star Trek: The Original Series. The third starship offered is the
Sovereign-class U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-E, featured prominently in the first three movies to
showcase the Star Trek: TNG cast.
Under license by CBS Consumer Products, each ship is die-cast, hand-painted and comes with a special collector’s stand, along with an in-depth magazine featuring meticulously researched info and artwork highlighting the ship’s history, design and on-board technology, along with its crew and weapons.
The XL Editions are available exclusively from Eaglemoss Collections either by subscription or as
single purchases (www.st-starshipsxl.com). Subscribers can start their collection with the mega-sized,
8.5 inch long U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D for just $59.95 with FREE shipping.
For close to a decade, collectors around the world have enjoyed the opportunity to deepen their fandoms through Eaglemoss Collections’ innovative “Build Ups.” These subscription programs furnish fans with regularly delivered plans, parts and behind-the-scenes insights with which to build their very own oversized scale models of some of the most famous icons of popular culture.
007’s Aston Martin DB5 from Goldfinger and the Batmobile from the 1960’s TV series were among the
most memorable – and popular. Now joining the fleet is Eaglemoss’ first “Build Up” offered to U.S.-
based fans, collectors and die-cast enthusiasts – The BACK TO THE FUTURE DeLorean!
Officially authorized by Universal Studios, this easy to build 1:8 scale precision die-cast model is a
highly detailed replica of Doc Brown’s DeLorean Time Machine as customized for the first BACK TO
THE FUTURE movie and featured prominently throughout the next two films in the trilogy. It builds up
issue after issue and is over 20” long, with metal body panels and a wealth of working lights.
No detail has been overlooked. All of Doc’s modifications and personal touches have been reproduced
inside and out – from the light up flux capacitor and folding seats to the rear end reactor and mess of
cables on the floor.
Fans who visit www.deloreanbuildup.com may subscribe risk-free for the special introductory price of
only $1.95 for the first two issues and parts kits – including free shipping. The next four issues and
parts kits will be delivered monthly for only $10.95 plus $1.95 shipping per issue. Subscribers are also
eligible to receive exclusive gifts worth over $95 and may cancel any time.
Noting the year that the Back to the Future saga started – and returned to at least a few times – the first 1,985 subscribers to the collection will also receive a limited edition, officially authorized DeLorean
exploded diagram poster absolutely free – perfect for display in one’s own garage or secret lab.
Eaglemoss may be best known for their scale replica of starships from the Star Trek universe, but their SDCC display included many new upcoming products from different licenses. Products on display included new Marvel, DC, Aliens and Predator statues.
You can see all these upcoming products below.
