Ill be buying that, despite what Greg says.
+++++++

I should point out that I'm not bashing it, just nitpicking. If I didn't already have my own model, I'd be all over this one. The Eaglemoss stuff is quite lovely, overall.

Not sure if I'll be picking up Phase II, since I've already have the TOS, the ISS, the Refit, and 1701-A thru E, plus the large size TOS Eaglemoss version, which pretty much covers the canon Star Trek stuff for me.

I'm already in deep enough with the Yamato 2202 series as it is, especially since they've restarted the Mecha Collection mini-kits for 2202...

JB, would this be of any interest to you? i know you have an amazing Thunderbird 2 but wondered whether the extras in this would make it of interest.

DeAgostini are releasing a 144:1 scale Thunderbird 2 build that also includes the vehicles/equipment from the pods

Genuine offer - if you would like it, I am happy to be your gopher for it

Finally had time to do some unboxing of the imports that were beginning to pile up...

Nendoroid Boba Fett, from Good Smile Company:



He was a lot easier to put together and pose, than the Darth Vader one.

The S.H. Figuarts Zoffy (Ultraman's Superior Officer), from Tamashi Nations / Bandai:



Not only does he get the optional hands and beam effects, but he also comes with Ultraman's Beta Capsule, and an interchangeable "dead" Ultraman head.

And the Movie Revo Nautilus, from Kaiyodo:



For something under 11" in length, it has an incredible amount of detail, and also has a bit of a heft to it, in terms of weight. The propeller turns, the rudder moves, and the ships boat can be detached. The miniature piece that comes with it is also nicely detailed and painted (might make a great playing piece for the NEMO'S WAR board game).



The photos above show where the battery compartment is located (3 watch batteries), and that all of the tiny hatches open up (the pilot tower and diver hatches hide the switches for the light-up features). The hatch in front of the pilot house popped off by accident, and it took some careful use of tweezers to put it back in place again.

As a child, it was always a delight when birthday and Vmas packages from relatives in England would include Corgi toys. I had quite a collection. So you can imagine what I thrill it was to discover Corgi is now making superhero statuettes, including this lady:

Love those types of situations JB. I like the Cap statue that they have too. Must, resist, tell myself, stick to 1/6 scale for any statues.
