Wee Willam and Little Laura arm in arm
If you doubt me, take a look at my newest and, dare I say, proudest acquisitions.

Yep, feast your eyes. That's the Titanium Ultra Series 6-inch Battlestar Galactica, with the Titanium 3-inch Colonial One next to. *GLEES!* I love eBay sometimes. I was originally just going to get the Galactica, but then I saw the Colonial One and practically heard Laura saying, "You can't really be planning to get his ship and not mine, can you?" ;) Who am I to defy Madam La Prez?

OH! And the landing pods on the Galactica retract, like so:

How cool is THAT?!!! *cackles maniacally*

*is insanely jealous* Very Cool. You just earned a million geek points. (that puts you over a gazillion now right?)

And awww. Look at the Colonial One flying next to it. :D
20th-Aug-2006 04:04 am (UTC)
Wait. How big are these things? They look rather small.
20th-Aug-2006 04:51 am (UTC)
Good question! *whips out measuring tape and runs to check*

Galactica is 7.5 inches long, while Colonial One is 3.5 inches. They're out of scale, of course; C-1 is nowhere near small enough to dock inside Galactica. But I find I can live with that. ;)

*drools over the detail*
20th-Aug-2006 05:23 am (UTC)
Ok. Not as tiny as I thought. Thanks. *hands towel*

Yes, on the show C-1 is small enough. It's the *toy* C-1 that's too big ... or the toy Galactica is too small ... or something. ;^D

Oh my god...
20th-Aug-2006 05:05 am (UTC)
I know. PRETTY. *glees more*

And then I just HAD to get one of the smaller Galactica's as well, because the big one doesn't come off its display stand easily. *facepalm*

His 'n Hers! Love it :-D

Bill: Mine's bigger.

Laura: Oh, the classic male argument. *pauses* Mine's prettier.

Bill: *snorts*

They are both shiny though :)
20th-Aug-2006 04:34 am (UTC)

Way cool!

(I just bought myself this, so, right there with you on the geek points!)
20th-Aug-2006 05:34 am (UTC)
And when those promo pics arrive, I may well achieve Nerdvana. *runs in tiny circles* @_@
22nd-Aug-2006 05:23 pm (UTC)
They're in the mail! Keep an eye out!
20th-Aug-2006 04:56 am (UTC)
OMG, I wanted those. They are out already? Where did you get them?
20th-Aug-2006 04:58 am (UTC)
Ah ebay. :)
20th-Aug-2006 05:02 am (UTC)
Just do a search in titles and descriptions for "battlestar galactica" + titanium. That should bring up all the Titanium series ships currently on offer. I've been sorely tempted by a Mark II Viper, but unless it says "Husker" on the side, I'm not that interested. 8^D

... does anyone know if they say "Husker" on the side? *hopeful*
20th-Aug-2006 09:15 am (UTC)
Couldn't you add a bit of a paint job and MAKE it say "Husker"?! :o)
21st-Aug-2006 04:21 am (UTC)
Will do. Thanks. :)

That would be awesome if they had one that said "Husker".
20th-Aug-2006 09:13 am (UTC)
I'd say you hereby just declared yourself Übergeek. :oD
LOL! And it's really the detail with the Colonial One that makes this purchase hilarious. :o)))

Ye Gods, what else are we going to do in this last month and a bit... This is pure fan enthusiasm!

I just read something about "Snakes On A Plane" saying it's something for people who go for CGI vipers. And I instinctively thought: Vipers? There are Vipers in that movie?
Then my brain kicked in again. :oD

nice find **pretends I'm not jealous**
20th-Aug-2006 04:04 pm (UTC)
Oh -- beautiful!

...gonna have to go cruise eBay.
20th-Aug-2006 04:29 pm (UTC) - Pretty Fraking Cool
I thought of getting one of Galactica but really I don't have the room. :Hangs head in shame: I must not be a true BSGer.
21st-Aug-2006 12:31 am (UTC)
Very cool!!! I'm jealous!

I swore off all this collectable stuff after packing away my four huge rubber maid boxes of Trek stuff, but this show has sure be making me think about buying stuff again. :)
21st-Aug-2006 03:55 am (UTC)
DUDE!!! OMG!!! You found these on ebay!?!
21st-Aug-2006 04:49 am (UTC)
23rd-Aug-2006 07:22 am (UTC)
Gah! I dunno if I want to spend *that* much on Galactica... I might have friends keep an eye out at the toy stores. Thank goodness for knowing lots of fellow geeks who make frequent trips and who manage to find everything.

...then again, if I put up that gigantic Jean Grey poster that I don't have room for after all and if it garners a pretty penny or two...
