I used to have set II quite some time ago and recently went about rebuilding my collection.

Here is what I've managed to snag on ebay;

Complete LEC Set I
Complete LEC Set II
just need the Enterprise E for the LCE Set III

Complete Television Series II

and a bunch of extra ones that came with most of the set III ships because it was job lot.

and the rare sisko solar sail ship.

I'm still waiting for the bird of prey from generations, the original coloured borg cube & the NX-2000.

Then all I will need is;

The caretakers array, kazon torpedo, hms bounty & the enterprise e. The first two being verrrrry rare and the last two being quite expensive.

That's awesome :)

I have quite a few myself, although I think you have me beat. The chrome/pewter set is sweet; I didn't know they made that.

I also only have one set, which I unboxed and played with :p. My favorite was always the future Enterprise-D from 'All Good things... ", with the third engine.

I think I had a bunch of Star Wars ones like these when I was younger, came in a set of like 40 of the buggers, was awesome.

Didn't know they did Star Wars.

I thought It would be worth collecting them again as micro machines are cool :) and I had lots of fun back then with them. The Star Trek ones are becoming harder to find and some are pretty rare and expensive if you do find them, and yea the 3 engine enterprise is sweet.

There are 3 main sets, 3 silver sets & two bronze sets. Set III of the main collection is the hardest to find (boxed). I only found one seller with most of the ships in a bundle in the UK.

The first USS Excelsior model is hard to find because it was a misprinted model, it was meant to just come out as the NCC-2000 but the first few were printed as NX-2000 like in the 3rd movie, and then they stopped and re-released them with NCC-2000.

The Bird of Prey from the 4th movie was only featured in the standard boxes of 3 ships and is hard to find, as is the BOP from Generations.

The Caretakers Array, Kazon Torpedo and Sisko's Solar Sail ship were all sold in the standard boxes of 3 ships as well and are hard to find too.

Each main collection comes with 16 ships in total (including the bonus ship(s). The silver & bronze sets have around 7 or 8 ships each.

There was also a borg cube with different colouring.

So cool, but I don't think you should have unboxed them. Might be worth a little something in a couple of years.

They were already unboxed, it's very hard to find a boxed set III (the ones on the right). You could end up paying 120-200 pounds. I was very lucky to find one UK seller with 12 ships from set III, Managed to get 3 more from anothter seller. They are not easy to find, you gotta grab 'em while they are there!

Very nice collection.
Dare I ask how much u paid for the Ent-E? I have been trying to find a loose E and voyager without paying an arm and a leg.
i know there were 3 bird of preys released... The BOP (lt greene), the One from generations (dk greene), and the HMS bounty from SrchFrSpk... which one are you missing?

Also, cant tell from your picture... do you have the seperating D?
