    Just wondering how popular the presale went today.

    Given that the complete run is like 2000 pieces total Im wondering how fast this thing is gonna sell out.

    I know I was there on the site at like 9:01am.

    Cross your fingers that these babies will last longer than the other Enterprise reproductions by that other company from a few years ago. You know the ones with the sagging engines, etc.

    No worries there

    >> Internal metal armature ensures long term structural integrity

    Im sure the designers are all to aware of that other companys previous fiasco on this ship.

    edit: there are some great threads kicking around in the SS forum on the dev of it, some good pix too.

    Taking into account MRÂ’s past shipping record it might be a long wait, but the good thing is they donÂ’t charge your credit card until it ships.

    I can wait it out considering this is going to be a first class reproduction and a lot of collectorsÂ’ have been waiting for a chance to own a model of this caliber for some time.

    I think it stands right up there with the MR Disney Nautilus as one of the most desired reproductions to come around in years.

    Bye for now

    I took the standard non sig version. Sigs dont matter much to me. However Im sure down the road those will command a premium if resold.

    I was just thinking, just with the people who have posted so far we have together spend almost $20,000 dollars on this.

    Crazy..

    It is an expesive piece.
    I was really torn on this one.
    I could not afford the BC signature edition but wanted one that would still be rare.
    I am going to :cry if these don't sell and hit eBay for cheap.

    I hear ya phez, I am going to keep a eye out to see how many are still kicking around by ship time. May drop the order the rebuy cheaper. But still 2000 total? There is gotta be plenty of trek fans all over the world that would flip for this thing. My wallet is crying right now along with my wife, you might see me next year living in a cardboard box with this ship held close acting like rain man.. 1200 dollars 1200 dollars..

    if you are the same individual who has an AMT refit build-up over at Cultman (which is an incredible jaw-dropping build btw) are you going to aztec your MR?

    Dude... if you popped for $1,999.00, you ordered the Commemorative Edition, not the Signature Edition. :D

    still out on buying another TOS ship.
    If I hadnt already spent years building the cutaway lighted version (see studio scale in the forum) I might be all over this. plus the rumor the Polar lights might do a 3 footer as a kit... :rolleyes
    well I dont know might just buy the base non signature version.cant have enough starships, still it doesnt have a bridge or a shuttle bay awww S#.t I cant make a decision...will have to sleep on it.
    I almost bought that half scale on the junkyard last week,was a little late with my offer..still dont know where It was going to live, * huge that one ..but still I would have had a blast super detalling that one up bridge,shuttlebay, working doors,real lazers in the saucer.yeah think I will wait to figure out how to do a 6 footer.
    anyway considering how long it took me to do a decent job on the cutaway 1200 bucks is cheap could have spent my time on doing other things like working on my Robby the Robot costume ah well...

    Preordered the Standard LE when it first went on sale. Almost went for the Shatner/Nimoy but a little plaque with their names didn't add up to $300 more for me. I also don't mind waiting a bit - as long as this is a first class item when it ships. We should start a pool of when it will ship. My vote right now is Feb. 2007 (just a wild guess).

    I pre-ordered the LE. I don't at all mind that it will not ship until fall, as that give me time to figure out a way to keep my wife from going berserk over the money spent on it.

    I think Polar lights has stopped making models after the Big E refit.

    I put in an order for the commemorative edition. Hope they do a NCC 1701-D TNG version down the road.
