"BATTLESTAR AND BEYOND 2 - Trailer/Movie Info"
Welp..its 2005..and I just got my order of BATTLESTAR toys from JOYRIDE in today.
They include the CLASSIC VIPER,CYLON RAIDER, and CYLON... Things look promising
enough from the packaging...they are small but decent...of course there are PROBLEMS!!
The biggest problem I have right off the bat is that the viper started to fall apart
right before my eyes as it came out of the package.. It seemed as if little or no glue
had been used to attach all the parts..worse yet, one of the engine intakes was installed
at a slight angle..making it look horrible... If you get the viper, don't forget
to buy some good glue - cause you will basically have to re-glue this sucker together.
... The Cylon had similar problems, but not as bad since he was made out of less parts. However
his shoulder armour popped off as soon as he got out of the package. Not good! At 14.00 bucks
each there should be some quality.... these are potluck items...apparently joyride hasn't
employed a quality control team on their battlestar line..too bad..since they have put
out some good stuff in the past....I have to ask..whats going on guyys? Why such the
Well if you get past the fact that these toys fall apart in your hands...they aren't
bad looking...but I do have a few complaints... These aren't replicas of the show models,no..
instead these are replicas of the MONOGRAM models put out long ago..all of there
flaws have been carried over... The viper is grey..(wrong color guys!)..the pilot is pretty small..
I think too small... the Raider has the same incorrect front end as the monogram model..and the cylon
warrior just looks a little weird...hes got these long legs that dont look right..
WHEW! Lots to complain about..but..as far as battlestar goes..these are the best
"TOYS" put out for the original show so far...even if they fall apart..you will have
a few seconds to enjoy them!... So whats the final verdict? Well..if you a fan..I'd
say go to ebay and get em for 7 bucks or something..they are cool..but way overpriced
for the workmanship!..

March 7, 2000 ,Actor John Colicos Dies at 71,Filed at 9:17 a.m. EST By The Associated Press
His best known TV role was as the treacherous COUNT BALTAR in ``Battlestar Galactica'' (1978-79)
John Colicos appears in the BattleStar Galactica:Second Coming Trailer. It was a thrill to have him be a part of it. Hopefully everyone will be able to see all the footage that was shot of "COUNT BALTAR" in some fashion in the future.Its a shame that it has to remain locked up during this whole mess over BattleStar. I would very much like to see Count Baltar one more time..... Best Wishes to his family
