Apologies for the rant, but I was really dumbfounded by this film - in a bad way:

Spoiler

 

This video pretty much nails my feelings on it in a much more coherent and calm way than I can express - beware, spoilers:

Just saw it last night. Garbage. Pretty looking garbage.

 

Can anyone explain how and why Tommy Lee Jones was doing what he was doing?

This thread is picture-deficient. The line must be drawn here! This far, no farther!

The Trek Collective was my source for these images, and there's a lot more info including videos of Ben from Eaglmoss showing her off.

Here's the article. The videos of Ben talking about the ship are well worth watching, you can tell he's not 100% happy with the end result either, and that dude knows his shit.

 

I have to agree with the disappointment. This is a super-basic looking model. The flat planar surfaces and clunky angles give off an almost LEGO vibe...

 

In fact, it strongly reminds me of THIS rancid and over-used stock image from the late-90's or some time:

 

Enterprise-D-star-trek-the-next-generati

(Just noticed this is tagged as a Lightworks image?! Tobias Richter made this thing?! He's really come along!)

 

Ben does note in the videos that it's not completely final, there are some sculpt details subject to change, but the shape is largely final - including that glaring lack of Saucer-rim detail. I think the most effective shape change would be to fix the interface between the neck and the Stardrive section - the flowing lines there are completely absent, and the shape of the deflector is too wide and the curves are off.

 

I was excited when I saw the thread title - I thought it was a revival of this lost gem - the partwork stymied by the 2011 Japanese Tsunami and Nuclear crisis.

 

That was a proper model of the Enterprise-D:

Look at that. There's no comparison here. What a let-down for Eaglemoss and Enterprise-D fans!

 

I christen this the Duploprise.
