That said, I'm going to buy them anyway because I have a complete lack of self control.
Right now, I'm boxing stuff up. I work from home, and have been working off my kitchen counter for years. I bought a portable building last December that I'm slowly finishing out. Plan is to make it my office/toy room. Now that the weather seems to be getting cooler and my busy season has finished up, I'm hoping to try to get it usable by the end of the year. I'm trying to lay out how I want things and what I want to display. Desk on back wall, long wall lined with shelving, some Detolfs on short wall, and a small nook by the door for hobby stuff/photography. I've focused my collecting down to spaceships, robots and certain Kenner style retro figures from Super 7, etc. So i'm working on purging stuff that doesn't fit anymore, and then I want to curate what is left.I'm in the same box as you, DR: most of my stuff's not on display at the mo', while we do (unending) renos.
Usually, it's all on shelves, en masse, like your hoard. Love to see a pic of your collection, btw.
I read that Warner Bros refused Eaglemoss’s bid for a magazine series based on Babylon 5 ships.
A real shame as I would’ve loved that.
I think the Darkstar has been in all 3 assortments of the Top Gun series so far, so you shouldn't have a problem finding it once it hits your area. They seem to be pretty popular. It's also included in a 4-pack as well. The 4-pack is pretty good as it seems like it's the only way to get the Iceman F-14 as far as I can tell.I'm very much looking forward to Dune, Foundation, the Mando, and the Trek shows... and Raised By Wolves is quite good, too. It's a golden period for sci-fi, innit.
Someone posted this pic on the EM FB fanpage the other day, love it, dunno where to get one.

I love mash-ups, here's another fave I'd buy in a nanosecond, if I could.

Our Boris told me about this one (cheers!) , but I haven't seen it on pegs here yet, just finding the car 5-packs with the crap planes.
Anybody get one?

I haven't seen the show and can't say the designs thrill me either but yeah, I'd be in for a couple of small ones.The Expanse is a great show but I'm not too sure there are many ships designs I like enough to get. The Rocinante is one I do want, though, that looks great.
A lot of studio assets need quite a bit of work, apparently. An example is the TOS-R ships: they were upscaled, retexturized, and regreebled because they were teeny, lo-rez, janky files as used on the show, usually seen as dots on a viewscreen. EM's gotten quite good at it, and imagine they'll do a decent job of the conversions. It's pretty much standard operating procedure by this point, especially for early CGI files.About the Stargate ships, Ben said that they'd got the original VFX stuff, but some of it is quite dated by today's standards - so they've been updated. I wonder what specifically that means, have Eaglemoss done that before?

I'd be surprised if they don't use Ed Giddings' models, or some version of them.
the R&M ship looks awesome! Alas I cannot find a single retailer around here who even stocks the Entertainment line, with one exception that is quite out of my way.
I did find the Wonder Woman jet yesterday though! It's very...plain. Can't say it's worth the price, but nice to have nonetheless.
I hope they get pretty far in the MOTU line. Would love the Road Runner, Battle Ram, Roton, and especially the Talon Fighter.
