The last time I received any parts for my 1:900 scale U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D partwork build-up was June 2022. Then, in July 2022, the entire distributor Eaglemoss/Hero Collector just flat went out of business.
Now, after more than half a year, our Enterprise D is returning back to life through Fanhome! And thankfully, they are allowing ex-Eaglemoss subscribers resume our subscriptions from any point – in my case the next shipment will be Issue 22 with Stages 83-86.
As of right now, they can only ship to the USA, UK, and Germany. The links to be notified when we can sign back up are found below:
Shipments are expected to begin by the middle of March in the USA, but as early as the end of January 2023 for UK/DE customers. Additionally, Fanhome has said that FREE GIFTS will be included along the way, but they may be different than what Eaglemoss offered.
I have had a great experience with Fanhome so far and am looking forward to completing my Enterprise D!
UPDATE May 25, 2023:
Fanhome has said that returning US/UK/DE ex-Eaglemoss customers will have until around the end of 2023 to re-subscribe. This is to allow for excess stock to be released in other countries. If you have not subscribed yet and plan on it, now would be the time. If needed, you can subscribe and contact Customer Service to put up to 3-months hold on your deliveries.
UPDATE April 26, 2023:
The Enterprise D is now available for pre-order (new customers) and re-subscribe (returning customers) in the US/UK/DE! I have signed back up and if you are doing the same, head on over to Fanhome.com!
UPDATE April 12, 2023:
Fanhome has announced that this build will be available for PRE-ORDER on April 26, 2023 in the US/UK/DE. At that point, we should be able to use the links above to re-subscribe. The expected shipping start date for these subscriptions is in July 2023.
UPDATE April 24, 2023:
Fanhome has provided a more detailed estimated ship start date of the 17th of July. As they now have a full picture of stock amounts around the globe, they still need to produce more stock and print any needed magazines.
UPDATE April 26, 2023:
As promised, Fanhome has now opened our Build the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D partwork build for re-subscribing (previous Eaglemoss customers) and for pre-order (new customers) – these options are different buttons on the website. The shipping start date is tentatively set for July 17th of this year.
NOTE: There may be an issue seeing the pop-out menu when using a device with a small screen width (such as a mobile phone or tablet in portrait orientation). I recommend using a desktop or laptop computer with a large screen. This errant behavior is being investigated by their IT team.
