Formed in 2011 from the merger of Eaglemoss Publications and GE Fabbri, the company largely focuses on publishing "partwork" magazines. Presently, it publishes about 150 collections in thirty markets, in thirteen different languages.

Eaglemoss currently holds licensing for a number of "genre" entertainment properties from 20th Century Fox (Alien, Predator), the BBC (Doctor Who), DC Comics, Marvel, Striker Entertainment (Valerian), and Universal Studios (Back to the Future, Battlestar Galactica), among others.

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.

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 Eaglemoss' science fiction-related partworks.

Star Trek licensingEdit

In May 2012, the UK division of the company launched the Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection partwork, under licensing from CBS Consumer Products. 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 composed of previously published Star Trek comic books from a wide range of publishers.

On 31 January 2018, the company premiered the Star Trek: Discovery The Official Starships Collection partwork. Eaglemoss also partnered with Simon & Schuster in 2018 for a contest to cross-promote the Collection and the first three Star Trek: Discovery novels. [1]

The company also publishes the Star Trek: Designing Starships and Star Trek: Shipyards series of hardcover reference books which were principally compiled from content in both Official Starships Collections' magazines. A number of these books are also slated to be published by Random House in mass-market editions, and the first Shipyards reprinting will include a starship model from the first partwork.

In late 2017, a new partwork featuring fifteen centimeter-tall polyresin busts of a number of Star Trek characters was being considered for production and Official Starships Collection fans were polled for their preferences. [2] Following Eaglemoss' decision to proceed, a solicitation for the first release was published by Diamond Comics Distributors in May 2018. [3] The company hopes to release this monthly collection through its webshops beginning in October 2018.

Eaglemoss also considered producing a partwork featuring a "build-your-own" large-sized USS Enterprise-D, similar to De Agostini's aborted project, but ultimately decided that it was not logistically feasible.
