Eaglemoss Collections Movies Star Trek U.S.S. Defiant NX-74025 Best Of Issue Die-Cast Metal VehicleI'm picking a few of the cooler Eaglemoss Collections vehicles, and many of them are getting reissues lately. The U.S.S. Defiant NX-74025 Best Of Issue comes in a normal box with a smaller magazine, making it a more retail-friendly item than the let's-bag-a-magazine-to-a-box format of the regular line. I wouldn't say it's guaranteed to impress since it's a really good model, but sometimes that's enough. It's not a toy - it's a die-cast metal (with plastic) replica of Sisko's overpowered war machine.

The Defiant-class ship is, on the show, a Borg-fighting prototype that Sisko picked up to deal with the Dominion encroaching on Federation interests. It lacks the usual saucer-and-nacelle designs we've seen of most ships, instead giving us a flatter and smaller craft with a more spartan (or Klingon) interior. There's not a lot here for research or diplomat ferrying, instead it's just a compact delivery system of pain.

The detailing largely matches the show, but some of the details are a little flat. The general layout is there, but you'll notice the blue lights on the back are one big unpainted clear piece, rather than an area with divisions in it. The blue on the front area isn't quite as clear, and is painted a light, pale blue color that doesn't really stand out much. The red nacelle caps on the front are clear and look sharp, but are missing a couple of key details. Some of hte lights aren't painted, but given the scale and price point I wouldn't expect them to be either. It's got a little heft to it, and on a shelf with other vehicles would look pretty fantastic. It's a tough little ship, and should be a bit sturdier thanks to the design not having pylons that could snap.

As with the others, the display stand clamps on to the back giving it the ability to look like it's hovering in space without any unsightly holes in the actual ship. From my experience with Star Wars, those holes would widen with time and gravity, ultimately leading to a loose fit or the ship falling off the stand. Eaglemoss did this the right way, with a bigger ship and more paint. The hefty base holds it in place, and the felt bottom is a nice touch. A bit over 4-inches long, it's a ship for collectors and not something you would want as a toy - after all, the toys used to cost about this and were significantly larger. How times change.

I should note that the booklet inside is interesting in that you see some concept art for the ship. I didn't read the magazines in the 1990s, so this is new to me - a few of the concepts looked like Star Wars' Y-wing fighters. It's worth flipping through, at the very least, and it makes a nice bonus add-in even though once you put the ship on display you'll probably struggle with where to put a small paper collectible.
