Battlestar Galactica The Movie - DVD
Finally they have released the movie on DVD, although they have not put much extra on the disc. The picture quality is great as is the sound, but they have cut part of the image off the top and bottom of the screen so that the movie looks widescreen. Bonus material on the DVD is poor at best with incorrect information and spelling mistakes. But the one thing that makes this DVD a must have is the different langauges that you can select. You haven't heard anything until you have heard a Cylon speak in Spanish. Fantastic!

Battlestar Galactica DVD Boxset
Now this really is great. Every episode on seven discs. The 7th disc contains some great bonus material and behind the scenes footage. A real must for any Galactica fan. This Boxset is also available in a Limited edition box shaped like a Cylon head. Personally I thought it looked very cheap and so didn't bother getting it. It also cost £15 more than the normal box!
Here is a little Titbit of information for you. The Galactica picture used on the box is actually the Monogram model and not the screen used model.

The Adam and Joe Show
The best bits from Series 1 and 2. I'm not sure if this should be classed as a collectable. The Adam and Joe show is a comedy show shown on friday nights. Each week they remake a movie using there toys, of which some are Battlestar Galactica. Oh well, it's almost collectable. Here is a screenshot taken from the show.

Space Mutiny VHS (1988)
Thanks to Dave Mowbray for informing me about this film. It uses stock footage of the galactica and ships re edited with new scenes to make another film.
I've not seen it, but here is the reveiw from the IMDB. A starship that looks a lot like, but has nothing to do with, the Battlestar Galactica, finds itself embroiled in crisis when the Enforcers (the ship's security crew) attempt to take over the vessel. This they do by Saran-wrapping their enemies and chasing each other around on floor polishers. Fortunately, the crew are aided by a coven of priestesses endowed with mental powers, who distract the Enforcers by dancing suggestively.
