Interesting. Well, I don't have any new info to offer about this so I tooHi guys,
Apparently a Battlestar Galactica Colonial Warrior was sighted at SDCC. It appears to be the old Majestic figure but with a new body. Did anyone see it and do you know who the manufacturer is?
Here's a pic:
Any info would be much appreciated...
Actually Majestic made the new series Centurion as well as the old series Cylon. Theirs is far superior to the Moebius model, and I've seen arguments that it's closer to true 1/6 than the Moebius, but it was much more expensive unless you were lucky to get a deal. Also, it is very delicate.The Majestic Cylon can still be found hereabouts, just try eBay. As regards the new series Centurion, Moebius make a nice model kit in 1/6, but, only get one if you have an airbrush. It's nigh on impossible to get a good finish with anything else, and believe me I've tried! CHEERS!
The eye did the exact opposite of lighting up, and was ridiculed for it. Package ludicrously proclaimed "red eye movement accomplished using a lenticular process. Allows eye movement without batteries." Not only did the "lenticular" strip do nothing but you could barely even see it.That one passed me by! Did the eye light up? I have a kit for the Moebius kit that can do that. CHEERS!
Interesting,The booth that the figure in question is a part of is at every SDCC and Wondercon. It is a guy with a bunch of old figures, all out of the box, some kitbashed or modified. He has 1:1 prop weapons (a really cool biker scout pistol from Return of the Jedi that he wanted $900 for) as well as model ships of all different scales.
His booth is sort of like finding that crazy awesome vendor at a flea market or a really great garage sale. Some of the things look beat to hell, others look pretty good. He has had that figure for over a year available as I saw it at Wondercon in April 2013 and last year's SDCC as well. The reason he still has so much stuff from previous years is that he does not price the items like a crazy awesome vendor at a flea market....
"It is made up of hand poured poly-resin, hard plastic ABS and soft plastic PVC" so the head is solid, being cast rather than molded. I suspect it would be fairly easy to recast one -- it has clean lines -- and find a way to put that kit inside, but I doubt you could convincingly get the finish to match. Probably there are people here on OSW (not me) with skill to pull that off.If the head on that Centurion was hollow it could be possible to put the light kit I have in it. It looks to be about the same size as the Moebius kit. The ZOIC one that the Majestic figure is taken from is from earlier seasons and the Moebius is taken from later ones. CHEERS!
