Oddly enough, knew about those, but missed the figures.

Anyone know if thereís an Ash?

Doesnít look like they have got around to him yet. Looks like they have
done the rest of the Nostromo crew but not him, although there are a
few issues missing on their website.

Canít find him on eBay either

On a different note regarding Eaglemoss. I completed a survey a few
months ago, asking about Babylon 5.

A recent interview confirms that they approached Warner Bros. & they
refused the licence.
Warnerís are refusing all potential licences for any Babylong 5 product
& have been for years now.

Disappointed does not even begin to cover my feelings on this.

Great Marvel figures, good art.  The close-ups admittedly had me fooled as to being genuine (latter day) JB art, but a closer inspection of the "covers"/boxes that the figures come in make it pretty clear those aren't typical JB poses or compositions... the stances look much too stiff to be the real Byrne deal, nor is there any real pizzaz to the design or layouts.

But again, those figures look GREAT.  I'll be scarfing them up at some point.  They just look so... wholesome!  They look like Marvel's true answer to the DC Super Powers line of the '80s, rather than those unsightly SECRET WARS figures...

Well, Iíve gone & done it. Ordered the HasLab Razor Crest from The
Mandalorian.

I think if Jabbaís Sail Barge had been released now, I would have
plumped for it, probably by selling a few comics to make up the
difference. As it is, the Razor Crest will be a fine addition to my
collection.

Problem is, I now need to buy some 3 3/4 inch Mandalorian figures to
go with it. I only have the 6 inch versions.

Iím still hoping that one day they will make a Ghost, but the odds are
slim.

I binged Rebels earlier this year and it reignited my love for Star Wars.
Recently got the Black Series wave and would love a Ghost.

Iím tempted by the Razor Crest, but like you I donít have any 4Ē figures.
It comes with a Mandalorian though so thereís at least 1 figure. Still got
a month to decide I guess.

Itís reached itís backers, so itís definitely coming.

I think itís big enough that my 6 inch wave will be ok around it

I would've loved to get that Nostromo. Do they ever
restock? I know Eaglemoss has re-released repaints of
Doctor Who figures or the originals in a bundle, but not
sure how that would work with a ship.

They do @ times Vishwas, but there are some models that do not
seem to get restocked - Iíve been waiting for the Star Trek space
station since first release - & that has never come back. Iím on a
mailing list for that one if they ever do restock

Hm. That site lists the Nostromo as 1/16 scaleówhich would make it about 70 feet long.

Not sure where Iíd put it. ;-)
