Just received my Federation Fleet Box. It was a l-o-n-g wait (pre-ordered 12/5/2011), but I do have to give the product it's due; they are very nice set of miniatures.

Mine appears to be one of the final run of resin ships (YEAH!!! I liked the resin) and they definitely had the casting process and packing dialed-in.

Unlike some of the earlier copies I have (Squadron Boxes, probably produced late last year) which had issues with missing parts/ships, underfills along the engineering hull tops, bubbles in struts and saucer-edges, etc., these are beautifully done. Crisply cast and all parts accounted for.





I'm still waiting for my War Destroyer minis, but so is everyone else. I hope those end up being resin, but only so I can keep my collection consistent. I've seen the metal castings of the Klingon ships and they're quite nice.

I'll shoot a quick "open box" review and stick it up on YouTube this weekend.

I did a quick video review of my Fleet Box set (which was resin in my case, probably one of the very last resin sets).

I pre-ordered through Mongoose, back when it was thought that might be advantageous for an early delivery.

Nice vid Will.

It inspired me so much that I pulled out my SL2500 Fed Fleet box and fixed up my CA and CL just now.
