    Yeah, I just need to figure out how I want to do billing on it, I fully intend to order it from NewForce.

    I'm going to have to check if the Klingon 2-pack is up for pre-order on NewForce yet.

    Klingons are cool and they might make TOS crew in their civies from ST III / IV to go with them.

    Then maybe they'll make some deluxe action figures of George and Gracie. I don't think any toy line yet has had poseable humpback whales!

    Notice also that it finally has the surface detail it deserves, no prior version at any scale has truly gone there until now. Hopefully the production model will match this. November cannot come soon enough!
    There is a reflection of someones foot in one of the pictures. That gives some perspective.

    That's not a reflection, it's show-through from the other side of the case. But you're right, it does an ok job of giving perspective.

    NewForce has the Ent-D on presale for $35. Must... take... advantage!!!

    New Johnny Lightning Star Trek Ship Waves

    Here's some pics of 2 new waves of repainted JL ships coming up for pre-order:

    Thanks to trekmovie.com... though their article about JL is occasionally inaccurate.

    Wave 5 -
    Enterprise NX-01 (2 enormous "phasers" or torpedoes, repaint)
    Klingon D7 Battlecruiser (light grey, exploding marmalade damage, "disruptor" torpedo)
    Enterprise 1701 refit (toasted! in final death throes from Star Trek III... sniffle .... hold me)
    Shuttlecraft Galileo II (2-tone grey/white, window paint)

    Wave 6 -
    Borg Cube (exploding marmalade damage and Borg energy beam)
    Romulan D7 Battlecruiser (TAS design...though the stand says Klingon)
    USS Yamato (Galaxy-class, no nacho cheese dip)
    USS Excalibur (Constitution-class, white)

    I'm hoping the toasted Enterprise comes with teeny toasted Klingons... hard to see the details of the wreck...

    Can't say I'm overly stoked but... I'll be grabbing the whole kit and kaboodle, I'd think... though I'll be doing some major surgery on those ridiculous missile things.

    The borgified USS Voyager is delayed. And I'm surprised they went with the TAS Romulan D7 when the Remastered Romulan D7 is much kewler, IMHO.

    As always, JL's paint and detailing look pretty good... and JL will be continuing the line with new ships in 2009, apparently.

    New Trek ships from JL

    A few more pics of Wave 5... should be released this month. Wave 6 (last post) is due in October, apparently.

    I can't say I'm overly stoked either on any of these. Maybe the last 3 from wave 6. Not too into anything from the candy crystal phaser marmalade universe.

    I'll probably pick up the Yamato, Excalibur, Galileo and maybe the Enterprise. The rest are...meh.

    Kinda wish the Yamato was the Challanger from "Timeless" though, as there is a Captain LaForge figure coming and it'd be nice to have something to display with him.

    Yeah, LT... the "Meh Factor" is strong in these waves... just unnecessary repaints, really.

    A USS Challenger would have been kewler... it'd be hard to find a Delta Flyer in a scale small enough to go with it, though. A speck, a mote of dust.

    But any episode in which Geordie wastes Chakotay is fine by me. And that one was one of Voyager's best episodes, really. One of Trek's best teasers, too.

    The Yamato should come with a virus that'll affect all the electronics at your home... but then again, that's nothing new to Microsoft OS users.

    On the plus side, at least I can put my diecast Starblazers Yamato next to it... just to rile the purists.

    But I'm just a sucker for this scale. There are precious few these days.

    Plus, they're cheap. You can grab the wave for much less than one Hallmark, though obviously they're not in the same league. IMHO, JL's paint is outstanding for this scale, overall.

    I'll end up grabbin' them en masse from eBay 'cuz I'll never ever see one in a store... all I ever see are clear Romulan Warbirds from eons ago.

    I'd love to see more Trek "alien" ships from JL, and an Akira-class and Enterprises B, C, and E would rock. How about a few shuttlepods, travel pods, or TNG/DS9/VOY shuttles? I could go on...

    Still waiting for the Konami ship set to come down in price... kinda semi-stoked about those, too.

    But they too will join the Fleet eventually... mwa-ha-ha...(insert image of deranged Commodore twirling mustache)

    Man, Johnny Lightning is riding the rails to hell with those waves.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.
