I don't know WHEN Eaglemoss or anyone else will come out with so-called 'official' Popcornian ships… I share these links for those who can't WAIT for 'similitudes' to get here in time for Christmas/New Years star battles…..for different games.

Pewter-ish ships: link

Shape-waysian varients….

I got one of each material, WSF and Frosted Ultra Detail. Ship was 'resized' between printings….(I think)…as the FUD was larger. Would make a great BATTLESHIP compared to the largest of the pewter ships listed above, which is what I intend to use it for. The first WSF version matched the size of the 'regular' mid-sized science version in the metals…..shuttles not available in metals…yet!

and some 'almosts'….

in the 'larger' size and the same two in a smaller size are available too!

and last, but not least….
Fantastic Plastic is producing a resin kit that would make a great display in your 'Captain's Quarters'

Don't forget to bring your own popcorn and DO fear the BANANA!!!

What's a Popcornian ship? How much temperature can they withstand before popping?

As a loyal popcornian naval officer rank of kernel, I cannot answer that question as it pertains to Galactic top secrets. Prepare to launch butter torpedoes!

I would have said more like sunflower seeds, but OK. I suppose you could go with Orville Redenbakker's…

@CC: The ships have a rather passing resemblance to a certain Seth MacFarlane spoof series.

Ahhh, it must be one of the many shows I've been missing out on. Thanks!

While some folks BELIEVE that you can only make one DISCOVERY of a new tv show, (sci-fi or not)….a season, there are others who would feel very ORVILLE it they didn't watch any and all sci-fi-ish shows…..since some networks seem to CANCEL good shows too darn easily!

To misquote The Brigadeer….'Sci-fi shows? wonderful chaps, all of them!'
