X-Plus / Shonan-RIC USA, one of the well-known producers of high quality giant monster figures, has given a sneak peek at some of the upcoming releases (including some Ray Harryhausen creatures):

New Products List 2020

Since I already have the Deforeal Mecha-Godzilla 1974 on preorder, will have to pick up the 1975 version as well.

Oo! Oo! Cyclops!!!

(Gee, sure hope that's a WIP. Just noticed very obvious SEAMS down the outside of the arms!)

JB, with X-Plus the sculptors try to recreate every exact detail of the original filming monster suit or the stop-motion animation figure, including the molding seams, zipper lines, and even the latex wrinkles that were on some of the classic Toho and Ultraman robot character suits.

I checked, and didn’t see those seams in any clips from the movie.

I'm not sure if I should start a new thread or have my topic remain here.

I need help from any forum members that could share some insight. 
I'm interested in getting a model of the Star Trek Enterprise NCC-1701.
What's a good one to try and acquire? 
Oh, and not a build your own model kit, I'll never get around to doing that. The size doesn't need to be any larger than 18". At some point  I'd like to add  the NCC-1701-D and then the NX-01. Any companies make all three? It would be nice to keep them in the same scale.
Thanks for any replies.

I guess Greg Kirkman would be the best to answer those

Speaking of such things—Enterprise models, not Kirkman—the Hallmark tree-topper arrived today. Smaller than, but somehow reminiscent of, the old AMT kit. Pretty nicely done.

My only “complaint”: the base is four of the arrowhead emblems, but they all have the Command insignia. I would have done all three, with the STAR TREK logo on the front.

Thanks for the heads up JB, I'll look into the Hallmark tree-topper!
