Latest from All the Collections including Star Trek Discovery Starships, XL Editions,  Character Busts and “Premier Edition” Visual Albums


(New York, NY) – Soaring into Booth #1520 at this year’s New York Comic Con, Eaglemoss Hero Collector, designers, manufacturers and publishers of high-quality collectibles from across the many worlds of pop culture, once again takes to the skies with a host of officially authorized Star Trek™ exclusives, never-before-seen starships and awesome show specials.


Fans in attendance will be able to start or add to their collections at special prices – as well as purchase truly out-of-this-world gifts – beginning Thursday, October 4th, through Sunday, October 7th, at the Javits Convention Center on West 34th Street in New York City. They’ll also be among the first to get a look at some of Eaglemoss Hero Collector’s most exciting new releases.

Celebrating the tremendous success of Season 1 of Star Trek: Discovery and gearing up for the launch of Season 2, Eaglemoss will offer for sale the extremely limited edition U.S.S. Glenn NCC-1030 variant from the Star Trek: Discovery Official Starships Collection. The sister ship to the U.S.S. Discovery NCC-1031, the Glenn was destroyed by Captain Lorca early in the series after a disastrous test of the experimental spore drive.


Like all ships in the collection, this larger scale model is made of die-cast metal and high-quality ABS materials, then painted using reference to the actual CG models from the production team.  Strictly limited to only 500 ships worldwide, each comes with a collector’s magazine, display stand and numbered certificate of authenticity.

Two additional, newly released ships from the collection will also be available for purchase – the U.S.S. Europa NCC-1648 and one of the few Vulcan designs seen in the series so far, the Vulcan Solkar-Class Cruiser.

Eaglemoss Hero Collector’s popular Star Trek Starships XL Editions line continues to grow and fans at the event will be able to purchase the storied U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-C, as seen in Star Trek: Generations and making its debut at New York Comic Con, along with the Miranda-class U.S.S. Reliant.

One of the most important ships in Star Trek history, the Kobayashi Maru, also makes its debut at Booth #1520 as a Bonus ship from the original Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection – and will be available for purchase on site at special convention pricing.

This year, Eaglemoss Hero Collector will also showcase its line of Official Star Trek Collector’s Busts. Featuring the iconic captains of Starfleet and other memorable characters from over 50 years of Star Trek TV and movie history, this new series captures them in impressive detail with highly accurate likenesses, uniforms and props. Each hand-painted polyresin bust is 4.5 to 6” tall, comes complete with a fact-filled magazine, and forms an essential addition to any Star Trek collection. On display at NYCC will be four fan favorites – Captain James T. Kirk, Science Officer Spock, Lt. Commander Worf and Lt. Commander Data – with Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock available for purchase on site.


Fans and gift givers will also be able to choose from a wide variety of starship models and bridge dedication plaques on display – not to mention the Eaglemoss Hero Collector “Premier Editions,” a line of all-new authoritative hardcover visual guides that includes:

  • Star Trek Shipyards Starfleet Starships – The Encyclopedia of Starfleet Ships: 2151-2293
  • Star Trek Shipyards Starfleet Starships – The Encyclopedia of Starfleet Ships: 2151-2293 with U.S.S. Enterprise Collectible

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.
