Hero Collector continues to expand its offering of models tied into the new Star Trek Universe with the announcement of a new range and the reveal of Captain Riker’s ship.
Titan joins the fleet
Hero Collector’s latest range of die-cast Star Trek starship models is based on ships from Star Trek: Lower Decks, the animated comedy that was just picked up for a fourth season. Hero Collector’s Star Trek: Lower Decks – Official Starships Collection promises to capture the starships featured in the series with hand-painted, highly detailed models, with each accompanied by a profile magazine packed with behind-the-scenes info and interviews. Like with other Hero Collector starship models, each ship in the Lower Decks series will be mounted on a detachable display.
And to kick off the collection Hero Collector has revealed the model for the USS Titan (NCC-80102), the Luna-class ship commanded by Captain William Riker introduced in the season one finale. The Titan was first mentioned as Riker left the USS Enterprise at the end of Star Trek: Nemesis and it became the primary setting for a series of Titan novels, but Lower Decks was the first to bring it to the screen.
Hero Collector’s die-cast model promises to replicate the Titan’s design “with faithful precision,” It measures roughly 9 inches long, which is in line with Hero Collector’s existing range of replica ships from Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Picard.
The Lower Decks USS Titan model retails for $54.95 and is expected to arrive at the end of March. You can pre-order it now at shop.eaglemoss.com.
And for more Lower Decks you can pick up the previously announced USS Cerritos XL Edition model. This larger model retails for $79.95 and is due to arrive at the end of January. You can pre-order it now at shop.eaglemoss.com.
According to Eaglemoss the Hero Collector Lower Decks Starship Collection will continue to expand, including the USS Vancouver, the Parliament-class ship introduced in the episode “Cupid’s Errant Arrow.”
