With Battlestar Galactica #1 Dynamite Entertainment launches a new comic series based on the original late ’70′s sci-fi series. This means we get the classic versions of the characters, the original Colonial uniforms (including those kick ass jackets I’d kill for), and the design of the original Cylons.
Hot Wheels has announced the the old school Cylon Raider will join their boatload of retro TV and movie vehicles which includes K.I.T.T. & K.A.R.R., the Ecto 1, the Mystery Machine, a time traveling DeLorean, the Bandit’s 1977 Pontiac Firebird, Stroker Ace’s T-Bird Stock Car, T.C.’s Island Hopper helicopter, Cameron Frye’s Ferrari 250 California, and more. The 1978 Cylon Raider will make its debut a this year’s San Diego Comic Con.
Beginning in July toy manufacturer Bif Bang Pow! will be offering retro Battlestar GalacticaApollo and Cylon and Starbuck and Anroid Sister figure 2-packs. The 8in. figures complete with “multiple points of articulation and episode-specific fabric clothing” will be similar to the Mego action figures of the 1970′s and 1980′s.
