Special Issue #2

Throughout the subscription build of their 1:900 scale U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D model, Eaglemoss offers various ‘Special Issues’. An opt-out email is typically sent in advance, but these specials are automatically sent and are billed in addition to the monthly subscription if no action is taken. If you do not wish to receive them, you must notify Eaglemoss in advance via phone at (800) 261-6898 or via email at customerservice@eaglemoss.com.

My first Special Issue was the Enterprise Shuttles – Set 1. The second special I was offered is this Limited Edition Print. Eaglemoss brands it as an ‘amazing print which captures the flagship Galaxy-class vessel commanded by Captain Jean-Luc Picard is exclusive to our collectors‘. The details about this artwork is as follows:

  • The print is 11.8″ x 15.7″ (300mm by 400mm) which includes a protective border of 2″ x 2.7″ (52mm by 69mm), printed on 310gsm Hahnemuhle German Etching
  • All come with a biography of the artist William Budge the VFX Art Director on STAR TREK: DISCOVERY who has also art directed the Netflix show ‘Thirteen Reasons Why’

Thoughts


This print costs $44.95 including shipping. While the artwork looks very nice, for me it is too small for the money. Because of the ‘protective border’ the actual color printed area is only 9.8″ x 13″ (248mm x 331mm). Therefore, I called Eaglemoss and opted out of this Special Issue.

One thought on “Special Issue #2”

  1. I actually thought about this, because it seems like even the hardest of the hardcore fans are opting out of this print. I think the only print that might actually opt-in for: the one of the enterprise in Picard’s ready room.
