The Orville: The Official Starships Collection[edit | edit source]
The Orville: The Official Starships Collection is a licensed partwork by Eaglemoss Collections' Hero Collector brand that will feature models and accompanying magazines based on starships from The Orville. It is slated to premiere in 2020.
The collection was formally announced at The Orville's panel at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con in July 2019. Exactly how many models and which vessels will be released remains undisclosed. The company used a render of the USS Orville in its early advertising.
Eaglemoss Hero Collector's global project manager Ben Robinson stated, "We are really happy to be adding The Orville to the Hero Collector stable of model ships. It feels like exactly the kind of thing we should be doing since we not only love the show, but love the design of the ship."
"One of the notes I always give about any spaceship design on The Orville is, 'It has to be a good toy,' so I'm very much looking forward to seeing the Eaglemoss Hero Collector line of ships from our show," added series creator Seth MacFarlane.
The company revealed prototypes of the first three models from the collection at the New York Toy Fair in February 2020. A larger and a smaller model of the Orville were displayed alongside a small model of the ECV-197-1 shuttlecraft.
2020 Rittenhouse The Orville Archives Autograph Card Edition Set[edit | edit source]
After the success of the 2019 Rittenhouse The Orville Season 1 Trading Cards, Rittenhouse commemorated Season 2 with the 2020 Rittenhouse The Orville Archives Autograph Card Edition Set, released on November 4, 2020.
The 2020 trading card set was considerably smaller but also far more exclusive. While the 2019 set had hundreds of cards ranging from the common base set to rare autographs, the 2020 set contained only 26 cards - all of them autographed. Rittenhouse limited their release to 300 packs with 15 cards and a price of $300 per pack.
