  1. I packed these in a plastic container surrounded by tissue. I guess the "shock" of moving my boxes around loosened them. At first I thought they were broken, but once I put them back on, they will stay until you pull them off. So I just leave them alone packed until I decide to bring them out for display again. What's cool, is ONLY the Saucers came loose! Unfortunately, the TOS Battle Damaged Enterprise saucer section WON'T come off. Now THAT would be cool! Looks to me like the glue disintegrated enough for the saucers to fall off.
  2. One of mine is that way, I think it's an error on mattel's part. I don't have that problem with my Enterprise I don't know if my other one has a slightly angled doral and saucer I'll have to look, it's so minor it's barely noticeable.
  3. If they painted every nook and cranny detail it would get massively expensive. I don't think the pro hot wheels star trek ship crowd are a small group either I'm sure alot of people like these, so far only a samll group of people have complained. I used to go to hotwheelscollectors.com the people on the forum are jerkoffs. Those people complained about these ships too but lets face it none of them are real star trek fans anyway.

  5. If anyone wants to go the online route try here. The guy who runs this site is cool. http://www.milezone.net/bStar-Trek_c_68.html
  6. Me too and I'm sure any people who have the detail complaint can just paint the friggin detail themselves. In fact hotwheelscollectors.com has the color paint application code images for such a project. The charts that show all angles and what color goes where.
  7. I see some people complaining about lack of detail, mattel just didn't paint extra places like the large grooves on the rollbar and the surface detail under the rollbar on top of the main hull. Maybe someone can paint those themselves. The filming model has darker gray paint detail in those areas. I'm glad they are making them at all, I'm not gonna complain I'll be greatful. So even though we think it's substandard product, we should be happy about it anyway? Sorry, but no. It's not "painting extra places" it's putting the proper detailing on the things in the first place. It's pure laziness and cost-cutting on Mattel's part, and we shouldn't support it if we want a product that meets our standards. Maybe your standards are lower. I was really looking forward to these when I heard about them, hoping we'd get something that would at least match if not exceed the detail of the JL ships. We didn't. "Detail" also INCLUDES the paint applications, not just the sculpt of the vehicles themselves. That's your opinion, I bought them because I love Star Trek. Jmac, if you don't like them don't buy them
  8. Those aren't A listers they are at least D's........

  10. The ships with stands don't take up much space unless you buy a whole bunch. I'm gonna get the new Enterprise and Bird of Prey when I see they're available. So far Mattel has completely ignored the TOS 1701 unless they plan on releasing it later.
  11. Oh I didn't know that and here I was not going to get it The JL galaxy class is prone to breaking too, I actually ended up breaking one of the yamato's trying to saucer seperate it but the other one seperated just fine. This thing is thicker plastic so it shouldn't break and there are three prongs that connect into the dorsal on the stardrive versus the one fragile prong on the JL ship. The ships have alot of detail but the detail just isn't painted. The Reliant's equipment strips are painted blue on the JL version but they aren't painted any other color on this one plus the torpedo launcher has a ton of detaill too just not paint. Like the torpedo ports that stick out have the notched structure like they do on the filming model. I'll probably end up taking pics just to show yall. Both enterprises have translucent blue plastic for their engines and deflectors. The Reliant's impulse deflector crytsal is translucent blue too, actually the top and bottom deflector crystals and shuttle doors are all part of the same piece of translucent blue plastic I think. The Reliant's shuttle doors in the movie had deep blue lighting surrounding them as it approached ceti alpha 5.
  12. Yeah the hot wheels 1701-D is smaller than the corgi one. The HW version does saucer seperate.
  13. Die Cast and so far only I've seen them at Target and Toys R Us only. I'm sure walfart will get their ships sooner or later.
  14. I'd say you got an error one then because even my battle damaged JL Reliant has painted shuttle doors. They didn't paint running lights if he means the yellow things those are phaser implacements. On the bottom the yellow things on the rim of the saucer are the reaction control thrusters like on the space shuttle they control the angle of the ship.
  15. I have all 3, they are a mix of metal and plastic as would be expected. I don't know why people feel the need to #$#@# about everything. Hot Wheels have always been a mix of both materials. If they were completely diecast that would indeed be cool but we know that ain't ever happening so complaining won't do any good. Heck the Corgi ships weren't 100% metal. Whoever said the JL Reliant has more detail is wrong no offense. First the torpedo launcer has alot of detail, everything on the ship looks accurate to me. The 1701 refit box label is VERY misleading, calling the pre 1701-A refit by it's successor's name. I'll be excited to snag the 09 1701 and Bird of Prey. The new 1701 is cool in it's own way whoever it will never fill the shoes of the original ship. At least the diecast versions of the new ship have red bussard collectors unlike the playmates version which has blue. I'm curious to see how the bussard collectors look illuminated in the movie since the lightworks wallpapers show non-illuminated collectors. If I remember correctly the JL Reliant did have 1 and 2 on the shuttle doors, they were painted very light blue with 1 and 2 on them with black trim on each number.
  16. I got the Enterprise yesterday and my bridge button sticks too. I'm not complaining about it though, just touch it lightly and it won't stick.

    Nick fury

    I'm not buying a bunch of crap just to get Fury so hasbro needs to release him in stores.
  18. I'm extra picky with this stuff because it gets expensive after a while. So far I have, all 3 iron man figures , both punishers, both spidermanfigures, green hulk, captain america and daredevil which i dont know why i bought him. That's all for now.
