I just received my Battlestar statue that I snagged for about $130 including shipping. What a great ship! I bought the battle damaged version because realistically the ship was never portrayed as "clean" for much in the show. The weight of the ship/base is just amazing and the detail is really superb. Im no statue expert but this one is pretty cool. Its going to be displayed with its Star Trek brethren and Ill try to take some pics of my own "Ships of the Line" display. My only gripe is that even at the discounted price $130 is incredibly high compared to the star trek $40 for ships that light up/talk.

    If I don't have it, they never made one.

Congrats on the good deal. I have thought about picking that one up myself but the price point is way to high fo me. I relay wish that DST would do these BSG ships like the Star Trek ships with lights and sounds. I cant wait to see pics.

I've got all the ships to date. Well, I have the "clean" BSG, Viper II, Cylon Raider, and Cylon Scar Raider. Viper VII is on order. I didn't double-dip for the battle damaged. Can't wait for them to do Pegasus. Think I'll skip the classic Cylon Raider/Razor. I just don't like that ship enough and it was only seen in 2 episodes.

That said, the prices are outrageous and the quality lacking for such beyond the stellar sculpts. Whomever details them after the sculpts is really poorly skilled. Only the physical quality of them has made them worth while. That and my obsession with nBSG.

I just want Pegasus. I know it exists. When Gabe K (forget how to spell his last name) designed Galactica, he also did Pegasus. So... it exists.

Still waiting for Pegasus. A little alarmed it's not been announced yet. They announced the fighters so quickly, and since... nothing.

I really want Pegasus. Raptor would be great too. Basestar. Colonial One.

I don't buy many expensive items like this. But for nBSG? Must. Have. End of sentence. LOL.

The price point is a bit steep so Ive been selective on what I get. I would probably get the pegasus and maybe a basestar. If colonial one was scaled correctly and priced accordingly I might pick that up too.
