Welcome to the figures pages. This section has been spilt in two as it was getting so large.
Page One contains vintage figures, Page two contains modern figures.
Here is my collections of Battlestar Galactica figures.
These figures where made by Mattel and came in 3 3/4" and 12" variations.
The figures were originally released in two series. The first contained
Starbuck + Gun, Adama + Gun, Imperious Leader, Silver Cylon + Gun, Ovion and Daggit
(brown). The second series consisted of Gold Cylon + Gun, Lucifer, Boray +
Club, Baltar + Gun and Daggit (tan).
3 3/4" Figures
These first series of figures can be found for as little as 30p each,
although finding a Cylon with all it's silver paint is tricky.
The second series can be alot harder to find and, therefore, more expensive.
As with all toys weapons are even rarer than the figures themselves.
The Cylon Blaster above is actually a reproduction gun and is almost identical to the original.
There is a link to the SW-IJ Repro page in the links section where you can buy reproduction weapons for your 3 3/4 inch figures.
3 3/4" Multipacks
The small figures also came in three different multipacks. There was a 4 Figure Pak, a 6 Figure Gift Set, and a 3 figure mail away box.
Thanks to Bob Bergeron for sending me these images.

As well as the small figures there were two twelve inch figures released by
Mattel. They are based very loosely on a Cylon and Colonial Warrior with the body
being taken from and earlier figure called Captain Lazer made in 1967 for the Major Matt Mason toy line. You can see a picture of
Captain Lazer by clicking Here. Both figures have battery operated
light up weapons, but the Cylon has the added bonus of a manually operated
moving red eye and glowing chest.
Both figures come with a few clip on weapons. The Warrior comes with a laser beam, scanner device and Arial (picture above), the
Cylon came with a different style laser and the same Arial. Unfortunately my Cylon
figure is missing the laser effect from the front of his guns.
The picture on the right hand side shows and early prototype of the Cylon figure as featured in the 1978 Mattel
toy retail catalogue. As with most toy lines they have to go through a few versions before the toys gets released.
Unfortunately, my Cylon figure is missing the laser effect from the
front of his gun.
Mattel also made one Plush toy for the line based in Boxey's Daggit Muffet. The toy features a pull
string that makes it bark or play robot noises from the show when pulled. The toy is mainly made out of fabric but has plastic sections for the eyes and noise.
It actaully looks pretty much like Muffet in the show, only smaller at 14 1/2 inches long.
You can hear an MP3 of the Daggits sound effects by clicking below
Comet Miniatures - Cylon Warrior
Made by Comet Miniatures in the early 80's in a limited production run which only lasted a year or 2.
This figure did require some assembly, as you can see from the un-assembled version picture here.
Thanks to Robert Hodson for sending me this Image of a carded version of the Comet Battlestar.
