That is FANTASTIC news!!! I know that Frank has been working with the licensing folks for a VERY long time on this, I'm glad it has finally come to pass! I thought Revell did a great job on their JJPrise, but I look forward to what Team Moebius will bring to the table ! :smile2:

Great and unexpected news! The Revell version is very good, but I'm looking forward to the Moebius version and whatever other Trek ships they produce.

Great news! There's high respect for Moebius' level of quality and accuracy, so the new kits shouldn't be the aftermarket magnets that the old AMT kits were (and even the Revell JJprise). We might now actually GET kits of the Kelvin, Franklin, etc. If Moebius wastes our time with nonsense like the air car that Khan uses to shoot up Federation headquarters in Into Darkness, however, that will be a shame. Guys? No Kazon torpedoes or Scorpions, please! This news should also be a wake up call to Round 2. New kits. Accurate kits. Make. An. Effort.

Of course by the time the kit from Star Trek 3 is out, the franchise will be on Star Trek 19 (based on the length of time to get most kits out)

Looking forward to this. Saw it a few hours ago. If I'm not mistaken the saucer looks taller and the angle is steeper. On the lookout for better images.

This is true for me as well. I'm hoping for kits of the Klingon D4 Bird of Prey from Star Trek Into Darkness and the U.S.S. Franklin from Star Trek Beyond.
They showed 4 ships they plan to release at comic con...
the Kelvin
the U.S.S. Franklin
U.S.S Enterprise ... the Beyond version
and the Jellyfish.

Other then the Jelllyfish, I like their choices. I'd rather have the Klingon D4, as was mentioned, in place of the Jellyfish.

It would have been nice if they'd thrown in the 1701-A from the end of Beyond, but I'll take it. The Kelvin and Franklin will be AWEEESOME. I might also do the Enterprise and Jellyfish too at some point.

Thanks. I suppose this list makes sense--release the "good guy" ships first, and see how that goes before getting into the more obscure (i.e., less screen time) ships.

The USS Discovery is different, that is for sure! I do wonder if Moebius is gonna snatch that up?

It looks like a nod to the McQuarrie Enterprise design for ST:TMP (right down to being constructed in a spacedock nestled within an asteroid.) As for Moebius, I'm sure they will be part of the discussion, along with R2 and perhaps even Revell Germany. :smile2:

This ships shown at the display are potential products; nothing's set in stone yet but certainly we're getting an Enterprise and I would think there's a very good chance of the Kelvin for starters.

Really want a Kelvin, in scale with the Revell Enterprise. Would be cool for you guys in the US because Moebius and Revell of German have been trading kits for a while now (Revell release the BSG stuff in Europe FYI) so you may get the 2009 E legitimately now. Its a really nice kit and goes together beautifully.
