News: All-new 22" Space: 1999 Eagle Transporter from MPC

Recommended Posts

Just announced a few days ago at Wonderfest, Round 2 is doing an all-new (nothing in common with the old MPC kit) 22" Eagle Transporter kit. They had a 3D printed prototype at the show, it's not not a plastic test shot.

It's is based on the 44" filming miniature used in the show, so think of it as a 1/2 scale model of a studio prop!

Word is it will have functioning spring-loaded landing gear and there will be an accessory set of turned metal engine bells that will better capture the details than plastic can.

Price will be in the $85-$100 range, they're saying November of this year for it, but knowing how new tooling usually goes these days, I think that's probably a long shot. I hope they can get it out by then, though!

That's too cool! I sort of remember that show. I would have liked to get the 1/350 Enterprise, but I don't have anywhere to put it!

Actually, I'm looking forward to "The General" release. Too bad Round2 doesn't update the MPC part of their Website.
