Eaglemoss Hero Collector Brings the Best of Battlestar Galactica to NYCC ’18
Die-Cast Vipers, Cruisers and the Galactica Herself Pull into Port at Booth #1520
(September 25, 2018 – New York, NY) Fleeing the Cylon tyranny, Eaglemoss Hero Collector escapes to Booth #1520 at the New York Comic Con with new ships from both the classic 1978 and renowned 2004 Battlestar Galactica TV series. Developed in collaboration with members of the modern Galactica VFX team, each ship in the Battlestar Galactica: The Official Ships Collection measures between 8 and 11 inches long, is crafted from die-cast metal and high-quality ABS materials, and comes with a 16-page magazine that profiles the ship and features interviews with the show’s creators including Ronald D. Moore.
Officially authorized by Universal Studios Consumer Products Group, all four ships in the series released to date will be on display and available at special convention pricing, including:
- Viper Mark II – measuring 10.6 inches in length, this versatile fighter appeared in almost every episode of the critically acclaimed 2004 Battlestar Galactica television series and features the Starbuck callsign and tail number, along with authentic wear-and-tear effects
- Cylon Raider – at 9.8 inches in length, this is the primary attack fighter used by the Cylons as seen in the 2004 series
- Galactica – the modern version of the Colonial super battleship that survived the Cylon assault on the twelve colonies, becoming protector and provider for humanity’s only survivors. Realized at 10.5 inches in length, no other ship has more heart and soul than this battle-worn behemoth
