Oh yeah its a nice model....and never for the life of me thought anyone would ever make one.

It not being one of the go-to designs is pretty much why I'm inclined to go with it.

Ventured a little further out then normal, based on info we were given on Thursday. I picked up EB Games exclusive R5-D4. This one was, oddly, tougher to pick up than the 3PO they had a while back.

Just picked up the Eaglemoss Neghvar model.  If you're not a subscriber and you've been considering this one for a purchase...DONT!  This model is terrible.  Some of the paint apps are nice but no windows (the starboard wing disruptor broke on mine) the details are bland and the parts sticking out back from the warp nacelles and daughter craft are open and hallow on the bottom.  Plus Im pretty sure that the wings themselves are too thin.  What a dissapointment.

You're quite welcome.

Last month, I first heard about something that I suspect a lot of you already know about. Fidget spinners, I found the concept interesting and filed it away for another day. Today was that day. I just went with a basic black one, but it was part of a BOGO sale they were having so the friend I went with picked out a camo colored one.

I'm doing another 6 weeks in the States thing. Today was day 4. I was out earlier and picked out a couple of things on my to get list..

TF: Premier Edition VOY Optimus. I could have picked this one up anytime, I just didn't feel like it until today.

Star Wars: 40th Anni. 6" Death Squad Commander. (really a Navy Trooper, which is what they'll probably call it in the Red/Black box.)

I'm in Vegas again for the next 3 or so weeks and while waiting to check into our room we visited one of the local Walmarts. I picked up TR Brawn. (shrug) I had the original back in the day so this was a no brainer for me.

Out earlier and I just managed the one this time. RID Strongarm. She was a go-back pick up. Initially I wasn't impressed with the blast effect on the gun, but I decided to override that because I like what I know of her.

Picked up some new Eaglemoss ships a while ago.

USS Franklin - A damn fine little model.  She definetly is my favorite Kelvin timeline design.

USS Rhode Island - Now I already have the Equinox so it was nice to compare.  The nacelle pylons feel more sturdy than the Equinox's so thats nice but it feels a little lighter so I think they used less metal.  Either way its not bad if you're a fan of the Nova its worth having both ships.

Arctic Transport - Now this is nice! The detail is great and the paint apps are wonderful.  The antennas give me pause but beyond that this is a fun one.

Ktinga - Ok this is lame.  The front part is all plastic and as a result mine is damn near permanently bent.  The detail is okay but some of the paint is funky.  Really dissapointed as this is one of my favorite alien ships.

Trekcore looked at the Franklin. I was just unimpressed enough with some of the missing details that even the drink topper model included with the Walmart DVD release got right that I decided to wait for Hallmark's release.
