New York Comic Con 2017: Eaglemoss Soars with Star Trek Debuts and Exclusives
Eaglemoss Collections is winging its way into Booth #1520 at New York Comic Con with a host of exclusives and never-before-seen starships that’ll have generations of Star Trek fans beaming.
In fact, it was overwhelming fan demand that persuaded Eaglemoss’ resident Star Trek expert, Ben Robinson, to start the production of the U.S.S. Aventine NCC-82602, making its U.S. debut at NYCC. Available for purchase as a bonus edition separate from the bestselling Official Star Trek Starships Collection, the Aventine is a Vesta-class Federation starship featured throughout the Star Trek: Destiny series of novels. Under the command of Captain Ezri Dax (from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), its crew of 750 engages the Borg toward the end of the 24 century.
The Aventine joins the U.S.S. Titan NCC-80102 as the only officially authorized Star Trek starships produced by Eaglemoss with their origin in Star Trek literature. Both will be on display and for sale at Eaglemoss booth #1520.
While there, fans will be among the first to get a glimpse of the mega-sized Enterprise NX-01, the fourth starship to join Eaglemoss’ line of XL Editions, along with the third quartet of Star Trek shuttlecraft, including Starfleet Office Complex Travel Pod 05 and a Space Dock Work Bee (both seen in Star Trek: The Motion Picture), the Argo shuttle from Star Trek: Nemesis, and the Type-11 Starfleet shuttle seen in Star Trek: Insurrection. Plus, there may also be a surprise appearance of two of the most eagerly anticipated new ships to join the Star Trek pantheon. All ships are under license by CBS Consumer Products.
On display and available for purchase will be the legendary Deep Space Station K-7, the spiritual ancestor to Deep Space Nine and the scene of many “tribble-ations” depicted in Star Trek: The Original Series and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
Finally, fans will be able to get closer to completing their own Official Star Trek Starships Collections with a wide variety of models on display and available for purchase – as well as Volumes One and Two of Star Trek: Designing Starships, plus full-scale replicas of Starship Dedication Plaques.
As part of their celebration of New York Comic Con, Eaglemoss has also launched its “Winner Take All Giveaway!” One Grand Prize winner will receive over $350 in Eaglemoss collectibles selected from the Star Trek, DC Comics and Alien & Predator universes while nine First Prize winners will receive their choice of one those bundles.
New York Comic Con takes place at the Javits Center in NYC on October 5-8, 2017.
