new eve store, new ship models - the wait is almost over!

This Friday, August 29th, the EVE Store will be disabled, but don’t worry, within 48 hours after that we will roll out a brand new store* to satisfy all your needs for EVE paraphernalia. The new store will be based in North America and our new carrier will be FedEx, allowing us to offer a reliable shipping service with the ability to track your packages.

The new store will herald in the arrival of the long-awaited Collectable Battleship Models!

The EVE Online Battleship Models are constructed from a solid resin foundation and are mounted, ready for display, on a base emblazoned with the associated faction logo. The meticulous reproduction of EVE Online's ships is achieved through a combination of plastic detailing, cast metal components, and hand painted accents. The end result is a striking replica of the very ships soaring through space in New Eden.

The four Tech I Battleships will sell for 124.99 USD each, and the four Faction Battleships are sold as a set for 499.96 USD. We're offering a special 15% discount on all ships ordered by September 30th.

Now you can truly play EVE Offline, though you may get some strange looks from friends and family!

         


* = Due to the upgrade and change, a new login will be required to order from the store.

Ordered me the Faction Set.  Expensive (£300 and change) but what worries me is the Import Taxes & VAT I'll have to pay as they are coming from the US....

Adds like another £65-70 (maybe more as I am sure Fedex have an extra charge I dont know about...) to the total. Grrrrr!


Need to locate shelfspace for them too now, at minimum each is 14inches long and nearly as much in height.

i ordered some models and action figures from the usa a couple of years ago if you can get them to mark them as toys.

toys are exempt from import tax or they were a couple of years ago.
