Special Edition January 2017, MPC874/06, $200 (500 copies).

This is a more accurate version of the Eagle, based on the detailing of the first 44 inch studio model but 22 inches (55cm) in length (twice the size of the MPC Eagle). The model is made of styrene (the same plastic used for regular kits). The plastic is in two colours- white and grey - so an unpainted model will still be a fair representation. The landing gear is sprung, and the front windows are clear, showing two pilots with bulkhead wall (like the filming miniatures, not a studio cockpit replica).

Box text:

This all-new model kit from MPC showcases years of research of the filming miniatures used in the show's production to provide the most accurate plastic model kit possible. It features authentic detail, like spring-loaded articulated landing gear. The central pod can be removed as well. Its detail is impressive as is its length, which nears 22 inches (59cm).

There are separate aluminium replacement parts. See box art

Nuclear Waste Disposal Area 2 diorama set

USA, December 2017, MPC 860/06

Round 2's Jamie Hood in June 2017. The lamp posts and a waste cover were on display, with a graphic describing the set.

A diorama set available separately to the Cargo Eagle. Mostly 1:48 scale, with some parts 1:24 scale. It is accurate to the studio set, rather than the model sets.
