Official Star Trek™ Starships XL Editions Debut at 2017 Convention

(August 9, 2017 – Las Vegas, NV) – 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.

 

The debut of the Official Star Trek Starships XL Editions is one of the many milestones being celebrated by Eaglemoss throughout the “Summer of Trek.” Through August 17th, fans who enter online at www.GetYourTrekOn.com can win one of more than 500 prizes, including ten Grand Prizes of a one-year subscription to the Official Star Trek Starships Collection from Eaglemoss.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
