I have been a big fan of Battlestar Galactica since way back in the day when Starbuck was a dude. Not long ago we talked about the BSG Viper MK II from the new series and if you had to have it, just get out your wallet again.
As a kid, I loved the original Battlestar Galactica, and had some of the toys that went with the show. I particularly remember the Viper spaceship, and I would routinely play with the triangular fighter during commercial breaks.
One of the things you learn in the world of geekdom is that any time you slap some horizontally-chasing red LEDs into something, it’s instantly transformed into Cylon technology. But I always thought if you did it to the front of a vehicle, it’s a reference to Knight Rider’s K.I.T.T.
When you meet your girlfriend at a Battlestar Galactica party, you better have something special lined up for an engagement ring when you eventually propose to her. I mean, really lay some cubits out and show her how special she is.
I love vintage Battlestar Galactica as much as I love the more recent version. And I do have a soft spot for old-school Cylons, so I find it awesome that Eugene Haggerty from Clearwater, Florida is building a half-scale, drivable replica of the original Cylon Raider.
Your beat-up ride may not be able to make the Kessel Run, is smaller on the inside and can only go where you’ve already gone before, but you can always use your imagination. Though that could be mentally taxing depending on the state of your car, so you might want to make it easier with these geeky car emblems.
Whether you’re rooting for the colonies or the Cylons, you’ll love both of these plush toys, based on the fighter ships from Battlestar Galactica. While I’m not sure if they’re based on the original 1980s series or the 21st century reboot, they look like they could pass for either since they’re so soft around the edges.
Did you think that Garry King’s 54-pound LEGO Battlestar Galactica spaceship was impressive? Check out his new latest creation, the BSG Valkyrie, made entirely of LEGO bricks, and weighing in at a whopping 111 pounds!
Imagine flying in the cockpit of a Colonial Viper, maybe even right alongside of Starbuck and Apollo. Some enterprising kids are on that. In preparation for the next Bay Area Maker Faire, 5 high school students and some adults from Marin, Oakland, and San Francisco, are working on a full motion flight simulator inspired by Battlestar Galactica.
Fans of the classic Battlestar Galactica series will be drooling over this epic bit of cosplay gear, just announced. It’s a helmet based on the ones worn by Colonial Viper pilots, and it’s a perfect replica of the original.
I have no idea what would compel someone to either make or buy this thing, but the sheer absurdity of it made me want to mention it. What you’re looking at, my friends, is what I’m reasonably certain is the first (and last) ever Cylon Centurion toilet paper dispenser.
Yep, you heard me right.
To celebrate the 17th anniversary of the 3DO, Panasonic is getting back into the video game business. Just kidding about the 3DO part, but who knows. What’s true is that the company is working on Panasonic Cloud Entertainment, a platform with an emphasis on online gaming and cloud-based media.
Teddy bears are supposed to be all cute and fuzzy, but what happens when an intrepid DIY-enthusiast decides to make one look like a Cylon?
The Cylon Teddy Bear Mark 1 was created by Instructables user Dragonvpm, probably to scare his girlfriend!
Here’s a sure-fire way to tell if your girlfriend really loves you. Get down on one knee -there ya go – then whip out the velvet ring box – yep, that’s it – then give her this awesome Cylon Centurion engagement ring and ask her for her hand in marriage.
This DIY electronic kit lets you live out your Battlestar Galactica fantasies in miniature. Dale Wheat’s tinyCylon circuit is a pint-sized version of the chasing red LEDs found in the helmets of everyone’s favorite Battlestar baddies.
The tinyCylon gets its tiny little brains from the programmable ATtiny13 controller chip, and loaded with more patterns than you can shake a stick at.
