(written from a Production point of view)
Eaglemoss Collections is a British publishing company which produces licensed magazines and collectibles for a vast number of entertainment properties including DC Comics, Marvel, and Doctor Who. The company has offices in London, Paris, New York, Moscow, São Paolo and Warsaw.
Formed in 2011 from the merger of Eaglemoss Publications and GE Fabbri, the company largely focuses on publishing "partwork" magazines. Presently, the company publishes about 150 collections in thirty markets and in thirteen different languages.
Eaglemoss Collections, a division of the Eaglemoss Publishing Group, is presently owned by Eaglemoss Capital Ltd., a holding company comprised of private investors based in London and Paris.
Eaglemoss was formerly a sister company of Data Base Factory when both were subsidiaries of the Financière Aurénis Group. Data Base Factory was acquired by CCA International Inc. in 2015 and presently performs several marketing-related services for Eaglemoss in the UK (and various non-English-speaking countries), under its new company name.
At present, Eaglemoss markets many of its partwork collections under its "Hero Collector" brand and operates an associated web portal under this trademark.
Ben Robinson is the project manager for many of these partworks.
Star Trek licensingEdit
In May 2012, the UK division of the company launched the Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection partwork. In Japan, the magazine is published by De Agostini, another partwork publisher, under its own imprint. A spin-off partwork called the "Star Trek Starships XL Edition", exclusively comprised of some of the larger hero ships from the Collection, premiered in the US in 2017.
Eaglemoss began to publish volumes of the Star Trek Graphic Novel Collection in January 2017. This series of hardcover books is comprised of previously published Star Trek comic books from a wide variety of publishers.
In February 2018, the company plans to premiere the Star Trek: Discovery The Official Starships Collection partwork.
A future partwork featuring busts of a number of Star Trek characters is also under consideration.
