*yawn*

Good show, but the fact that they de-robotized most of the Cylons so they wouldn't have to spend as much on SPFX pissed me off.

I don't need a bunch of human figures...gimme the damn robots!

Peace,

Chip

They didn't de-robot-ize them to save on SFX. They did it to write great damn stories. And they are. This is one of the top 3 shows on TV.

Hasbro said that they have the 3 3/4" rights in one of the Q&As, but they may have since passed on the figure line, or this may be like Zizzle and NECA with the Pirates, Hasbro could have mass-market and Diamond Select has the specialty market...

I agree with what y'all have said about the show--anyone not giving this show a chance for ANY reason needs to try it out.

this is the best show on tv. BAR NONE!
i love the way it is sci fi yet they dont have alot of sci fi in it.
it looks like its based in reality.
a very obtainable goal.

While I wanted a 3/34 line, and diamond will probably go with the larger 7 inch line I’m still down for these...

I was wondering the same thing, thanks for clearing that up, I haven't read all the SW Q&As.

If I remember that particular Q&A correctly, at the time there was confusion over whether Hasbro meant they had the 3.75" license to do figures or just the 3.75" titanium figure license, which they are making figures in. I don't believe it was ever cleared up.

I hope Mattel still can make a 3.75 line. This would probably be a line I started collecting. Especially if it was new and classic BSG. Mix and match and make your own BSG.

Are the DST BSG figures going to have more articulation than what was shown at toy fair?

Talk to a diamond rep at WWLA. Here is the deal - they will have way more articulation than what was seen at Toy Fair - those were just protos.

Also - series 1 has:
Apollo
Six
Hot Dog
Chief (SDCC exclusive)
Helo
Anders
Caprica Six
