Die-Cast Vipers, Cruisers and the Galactica Herself Pull into Port at Booth #1520

 

(September 25, 2018 – New York, NY)   Fleeing the Cylon tyranny, Eaglemoss Hero Collector escapes to Booth #1520 at the New York Comic Con with new ships from both the classic 1978 and renowned 2004 Battlestar Galactica TV series.  Developed in collaboration with members of the modern Galactica VFX team, each ship in the Battlestar Galactica: The Official Ships Collection measures between 8 and 11 inches long, is crafted from die-cast metal and high-quality ABS materials, and comes with a 16-page magazine that profiles the ship and features interviews with the show’s creators including Ronald D. Moore.

Officially authorized by Universal Studios Consumer Products Group, all four ships in the series released to date will be on display and available at special convention pricing, including:

 

  • Viper Mark II – measuring 10.6 inches in length, this versatile fighter appeared in almost every episode of the critically acclaimed 2004 Battlestar Galactica television series and features the Starbuck callsign and tail number, along with authentic wear-and-tear effects
  • Cylon Raider – at 9.8 inches in length, this is the primary attack fighter used by the Cylons as seen in the 2004 series
  • Galactica – the modern version of the Colonial super battleship that survived the Cylon assault on the twelve colonies, becoming protector and provider for humanity’s only survivors. Realized at 10.5 inches in length, no other ship has more heart and soul than this battle-worn behemoth
  • Viper Mark I (convention debut) – this is it! – the original Colonial fighter jet introduced in the original Battlestar Galactica series from 1978!

 

Hero Collector also invites all attendees to stop by Booth #1520 every day for the chance to win one of more than ## daily “Bundles of Joy.”  Day 1 will award the Star Trek Discovery Bundle, featuring 5 ships from the Star Trek: Discovery Official Starships Collection.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
