Based in the UK, Eaglemoss Collections were leaders in the collectibles arena since the 1970s. Along with their Hero Collector sub-brand, Eaglemoss were responsible for the release of some of the world’s best-loved partworks collections throughout many countries. These include 1:8 scale models of the Ghostbusters Ecto-1, the Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine and the James Bond Aston Martin DB5.
The sudden collapse of Eaglemoss left subscribers in limbo. For anyone partway through a build, this meant an uncertain outcome for their project. Fortunately, IXO Models (part of PCT) took over Eaglemoss’s assets, licensing and distribution rights. And in January 2023, it was announced that publishers Fanhome and DeAgostini would begin taking pre-orders in the UK, US and Germany on parts for the models left abandoned by Eaglemoss and Hero Collector.
