I'm all over this. Some truly good news! I wonder what the price point is going to be, as well as scale. It's DST so the figures should (in theory) look great. Here's hoping!

THIS ABSOLUTELY SUCKS!!!!!! This is worse than Shocker getting them. DST will make them oversized with no articulation and they'll cost a fortune. I really wish Hasbro had gotten them to do as a 3 3/4" line with ships & playsets. They've already done some as Titanium and they have a Titanium Cylon. It would have so rocked to have a current series and a classic series with Raiders & Vipers and more. Bridge playsets, launch bays and more would have been so cool. I HATE the Stargate figures and these will be more of the same. Sci-Fi's made lousy choices on licensing so far, I guess we shouldn't expect better now.

frak yeah, i'll collect them!

DST's Buffy figures have quite a lot of articulation. actually a bit too much as all the joints tend to detract from the appearance of the figure.

Not sure. Will have to see whether they are visually interesting enough. However, if DST makes a Colonial Viper that's actually in scale with the figures (unlike the ridiculously undersized vehicles and playsets that Hasbro makes for Star Wars), then count me in.

I am. I hope they're in scale with the Stargate figures.

Depends on if the likenesses are up to scratch or not, which isn't always guaranteed from DST. We'll see.

I love the show, but I'll probably stick with the Minimates.

I'll at least grab some of my favourite characters.

If they make a Number 3 aka D'anna Biers aka Lucy Lawless aka Xena: Warrior Princess I'll be grabbing multiple copies to make a "Number 3" Cylon army.

I hope the figures are similar to DST's SG-1 figures, particularly the second series with the additional articulation (knees most importantly). A 7" scale would be great and ball-jointed neck and shoulders, "T" hips, pin knees and elbows, swivel wrists, waist, thighs and ankles would be pretty decent.

I'm very impressed with the SG-1 figures, though they keep selling out of the "standard" figures which I want before I can make a purchase (even the army builder in series one sells well).

Variants should also be pretty easy, at least for the pilots and flight crew. Their "pilot" jumpsuits, their "off-duty" gear and their "dress uniforms". Same goes for the humanoid Cylons which can each have plenty of variants with minimal changes (eg Athena vs Boomer, just change the direction of the part in her hair).

Cheers.

Sketches and minor details. Not seeing anything I don't like so far.

Cheers.

I will not be able to collect this line fast enough!

And I cannot tell you how happy I am that they're not in Star Wars scale--these should look AMAZING!

I missed out on Stargate selling out so I'm pre ordering these the first chance I get!

The news is a little bitter sweet, but I’m hardly going to complain now that we are getting BSG in figure form. These will look amazing, and from that UK toyfare info they look like they will be articulated enough. Still, not having vehicles to put the figures in is going to hurt my heart.
