First Dozen Models Feature All-New Designs of Federation and Klingon Empire Vessels

(January 9, 2018 – New York, NY) – Hot on the heels of the return of the hit series Star Trek: Discovery to CBS All Access, Eaglemoss Collections is proud to offer fans a chance to check out the all-new ship designs joining the U.S.S. Shenzhou NCC-1227 and U.S.S. Discovery NCC-1031 in the Official Star Trek: Discovery Starships Collection.

Currently on display at HeroCollector.com/StarTrekDiscovery, renderings of the 12 ships that make up the first wave of models in the collection are each based on the original VFX models created for the show. They include 7 Federation ships (including the U.S.S. Kerala NCC-1255, U.S.S. Yeager NCC-1437 and U.S.S. Europa NCC-1648) and 5 Klingon vessels (including the reimagined Klingon Bird-of-Prey and Qugh Class Destroyer).

These renderings serve as the basis for the creation of the die-cast models themselves, painstakingly reproduced under the supervision of Star Trek expert Ben Robinson and officially authorized by CBS Studios. Averaging 8” to 10” from bow to stern, each ship in this special collection is incredibly detailed, cast in a specially formulated metallic resin and hand painted for accuracy.
Each ship also comes with a display base, as well as an exclusive collector’s magazine featuring behind the scenes info, original design sketches and a breakdown of technology on board.

Fans who subscribe to the collection will receive their first ship – the U.S.S. Shenzhou NCC-1227 – for only $9.95 with FREE shipping. Additional models – including the iconic U.S.S. Discovery NCC-1031 – will then ship monthly for the special subscriber’s price of only $44.95 each (20% off the standardretail price), also with FREE shipping.

Subscribers are also entitled to free gifts worth over $100 and may cancel their subscriptions at any time. Full details may be found at www.eaglemoss.com/DiscoveryStarships.

Fans who’d like to purchase their favorite ships individually may do so either online at shop.eaglemoss.com or at their local comic book shop for the regular price of $54.95 each.

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, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.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.
