Ok I finally got mine lol. I just ordered the faction kit. What's really funny is when I got home I saw the boxes piled up on my front porch. I went upstairs to eat and check e-mail and found that the "order has been shipped" messages came in after my packages arrived.

Anyway! On with the show. Mostly I'm just going to link up some good pics of all of the faction ships.

For all of you that whine about the following:
1) cost
2) pre-built/pre-painted
3) faction ships are just repaints

WE KNOW! Seriously, go whine somewhere else.

I'll note that the quality was beyond what I was expecting. These ships are heavy, and completely solid, not hollow. The weight says metal, but the feel is clearly very hard resin. Just picking one up, you know it's not a $20 toys r us item. I think the bases all the ships are on are metal, because they are almost heavier than the ships, and cold to the touch.

Well anyway, have at it, if you have any questions let me know.

"Fleet" Tempest fails. No square top wingy bit. Sad

Navy Apoc paintjob looks kinda...boring...nothing like the OMGGOLD that the regular has.

Oh well, neat ships anyways.

Navy Apoc looks the best.
Raven textures are so-so. Fleet Tempest isn't Fleet. Megathron is a Kronos Rolling Eyes

They all look pretty good from a distance though, except for the transoms on the Tempest.

I would consider buying an arbitrator or a curse IF it had the transparent part included.

Honestly, if I could pick one ship in EVE I wish they would make, it would be the Machariel. My fav <3

Even at these scales, it'd be the size of a shopping trolley :)

Got my Mega last week, and today I got a letter from fedex.

Seems, even though I only paid around $106.24 for the ship, customs thought fit to charge me Import Tax on the full $124.99 amount.
This was due to the fact that even though it states $106.24 on the eve store account, it actually said $124.99 on the receipt, and the discount was an added feature. Laughing

I also got charge import tax for the cost of the freight.... go figure.

Then there was Fedex's 'little' admin charge of 6.80 for waiting till the printer finished I guess. Laughing

So to recap.
I paid 89.35, that's ship and delivery.

Customs decided I paid 99.26 charged me 17.37.
Fedex helped me along to total it at 24.17. Laughing

Now then, should I buy the Raven or not? Laughing

Well seeing as all the other models are of Tier 2 BS i think that would answer your question...

Models actually look pretty nice.

Only thing that strikes me as utter fail; the little yellow lights that are painted on. Those look tacked on really fast and sloppy with a huge brush. Looks like they were painted on by someone with tremor in his hands.

Hey, JSYK, it's not a Republic Tempest, it's a T1 standard boat with a fancy paint job... the real mc'coy has squared sails.
