Looks great, definitely may pick one up at some point.


#94052 STO Partners with Eucl3D to offer player customizable 3D printed starships

Posted by Alteran195 on 01 June 2018 - 02:10 PM

I decided to order a 4" ship today of the USS Chamberlain:

Since there were some issues with the shipping costs, they gave people a partial refund and a 30% off coupon code, so I decided to order a 7" as well of the USS Columbia:

I'm curious as to whether I'll get these, or my original hand painted model first.

 

Can't wait to get all three and to see how they compare.




#94014 McFarlane Toys Gets Entire Star Trek Licence!

Posted by Alteran195 on 26 May 2018 - 11:35 PM

Thatd be ridiculous.

This is a replica of a Phaser, not a gun. If that were the reason, then I dont know if Id even want to support McFarlane having the Trek license.

School shootings are horrible, but that shouldnt stop a toy company from making a replica of a fake sci fi weapon.


#93972 Brand new 1:1000 Defiant coming later this year!

Thank you sir! Hopefully it actually comes out this month. 




#93876 Hallmark Star Trek 2018

Posted by Alteran195 on 30 April 2018 - 02:32 PM

Interesting that Hallmark went with the OT version of the Millennium Falcon, especially for 2018.
 
I used to only collect ships but after missing a couple years I've become a spectator. The prices on these make it a much easier pass.


Its a storyteller, so its supposed to go with the Deathstar, Vaders Tie, and Lukes X-Wing.

It wouldnt surprise me if next year they have Landos Falcon as a normal ornament.


#93745 Toys R Us stores closing down

Posted by Alteran195 on 07 April 2018 - 03:39 PM

I have come here often and been outspoken, right, wrong, ridiculous and perhaps some here think of me as rude, and ok thats fine but you know, that isnt who I am in reality, this place just winds me the hell up as does internet fans in general and for that reason Im out, this forum brings out the worse in me so, thats it.

Wait for me to close the door on this party before you break out the champagne

I think this forum winds a lot of us up, we're passionate about this stuff and there is nothing wrong with getting wound up about it. Debates/discussions are rather fun. 

 

Even if I don't agree with everything you've posted in the past, I'd hate to see a member as active as you are stop coming here. This forum is already pretty slow as it is. 




#93422 The Last Jedi 1/144 Millennium Falcon Build

Very impressive work as always.

Is that the new giant LEGO Falcon I see in the background?


#93389 Diamond Select at Toy Fair 2018

Look forward to maybe seeing a picture of the next ship in 5 or so years.

Nothing gets retailers more excited than several year old products collectors dont care about anymore.


#93179 Star Trek: Discovery. Series talk and discussion

Posted by Alteran195 on 14 February 2018 - 02:47 PM

This is the bridge of the Enterprise during The Cage. Notice the large computer displays, and even a seemingly touch screen displays on the helm/navigation station at the front of the bridge.

Discovery's bridge has a fairly similar color scheme, and just has larger displays with different, realistic data being displayed on them.

It even has those TOS style buttons and switches sporadically throughout.

#93122 Anovos Studio Scale Shenzhou and Discovery

Posted by Alteran195 on 11 February 2018 - 11:08 PM

Why is Discovery deflector purple? It always looked blue to me.

Gorgeous models that Ill never be able to afford.


#93098 Star Trek - The Official Starships Collection

Posted by Alteran195 on 09 February 2018 - 04:40 PM

This probably isn't going to be her permanent home, but I wanted a proper place to display the Shenzhou:

#92898 The "ST:Discovery is a Disaster!" Thread

Posted by Alteran195 on 27 January 2018 - 01:40 PM

There definitely are legit issues with the show, but saying its forcing some SJW agenda or "unhealthy" lifestyles on you is not one of them, and is an incredibly stupid thing for any "fan" to say about any Star Trek show. 




#92770 Star Trek - The Official Starships Collection

Posted by Alteran195 on 17 January 2018 - 04:24 PM

I never liked the side profile of the ship from the conference room, but seeing her from a proper angel I like it quite a bit.


#92593 "New ‘Star Trek’ Series Coming to CBS in 2017"

Posted by Alteran195 on 02 January 2018 - 08:02 AM

How is that poll even remotely indicative of fans opinion on the show? 

 

I love Discovery, but they certainly wouldn't be my first choice of who I'd want to serve with.
