    Hey,

    We have a studio scale Rodger Young from Starship Troopers in house. We're thinking of offering a build kit for it. Would that be something anyone would be interested in?

    Which studio scale are you referring to? There was at least an 18 inch, a 9 foot, and an 18 foot? :)

    Yes, very interested. Of course, cost will be the deciding factor.

    Definitely interested in this and the Athena! Was wondering when you were going to announce pre-orders.

    To those who didn't see it before, it was on display at WonderFest in 2014. Photos can be seen here:

    Very interested, but obviously depending on the final price.

    Honestly, $600 (plus I have to add, international shipping and taxes) for a model unassembled and unpainted, is very far from many people

    Im definitely interested Chronicle for the Rodger Young !!!!!!!

    Perhaps, Chronicle may offer a small discount incentive for pre-orders for those that pay and lock in sales............. not much but it might help those buyers sitting on the fence or those (like me) that will have to pay for international shipping. $600 is still a small price to pay for 3ft of a classic ship, heck, I paid $1000 for a studio scale Romulan Warbird which is much smaller then the proposed 3ft.

    Take my deposit....... :)

    Would like one very much.

    But I pre orderd the tanker bug and never did hear anything about that model again till a fellow collector informed me the starship troopers line was cancelled.

    Hope to get these still one day.

    Greetings,

    Yeah, I'm think this is sadly dead. I asked on the chronicles facebook page awhile ago about ANY kind of update and nothing. Sad, I was looking forward to this.

    I was worried this might be the case, but I recently got to talk to the owner of Chronicle. He assured me this is NOT dead and it is still in the works. Apparently there was a delay regarding the licensing arrangements or something like that. But, they say it will be offered. Can't wait!

    I'm pretty disappointed, the final price has increased, and also now not offer the option of other variants of the ship ... and in the first promotional images there were pieces to make this possible.

    Too expensive with tax and shipping for me. Shame but it does make passing a lot easier.
