A Diamond Select Release! The award-winning Battlestar Galactica series may be over, but the adventures of the Cylon Number Eight model will continue for eons to come! This all-new action figure two-pack features the two central Number Eight models - the heroic and dedicated Athena and her Cavil-friendly counterpart, Boomer! Both seven-inch figures feature multiple points of articulation and accessories from the hit show!

So, what's the issue with "Cavil-Friendly", hmmm?
De Gustibus Non Est Disputandum, right?

At least Boomie got the flightsuit. tra-la-la. :giggles:

Now that is damned exciting. But why is Boomer taller than Athena?

Uhm, I think Heroic-Girl (...) is the blue one and Cavil-Friendly-Girl the other one. She looks smaller; probably a "montage" effect.
But remember, we never saw the "upcoming Boomer bust" (neither the Helo one http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/prod ... ode=retail ) or the final version of the nice Sharon prototype we saw more than one year ago... (and I'm not even speaking of the frakked Downloaded-Boomer figure, the one where Grace said: "that doesn't look like me")

ETA: finally, either one of them could be Athena or Boomer. Who is who?

I think they should be interchangeable- then Helo, the only character in two outfits, can have one to go with his flightsuit look, and one for more formal occasions. The Chief doll will be equally happy to have a choice, and HotDog can look on and wish the Kat doll would give him the time of day.

I think Boomer is supposed to be in the duty blues- Athena wore her hair down more than Boomer did, and the whole look of the duty blues one to me looks like Boomer from when Chief's trying to get Starbuck's captured Raider to work.

"Cavil-friendly"? Stupid description.

Which figure that we saw a year ago? Not the one with the weird jacket- I was with Grace on that one. I don't know WHO that was, but it wasn't Grace. So which figure are you referring to? And yeah, I think the busts may be cancelled. Oh well, I prefer a whole Helo anyway.

Regardless of the appearance that one is taller than the other (it could just be that one was photographed slightly forward of the other), those look great!

I'm just excited that now my Helo can have a girl to cuddle, although I'd like a Gaeta for future AU stories...... :grin:

I wonder if Calvin will find her as tasty as Helo's arm. (or was it Chief he tried to eat? poor hungry cat... :grin: )


To summarize:

Image
"upcoming" (my foot) Boomer bust...


Image
Frakked Downloaded-Boomer (abandoned with reason, I think)


Image
Ah, here it is. So it was the same.

The cancelled Minimates.

Not bad, actually. At least they're better than that one in the brown jacket. :roll: I think the one in the blues must be Boomer.

Frak! So Boomie didn't get the flightsuit after all. :scowl:
They should have put her in a cool Cylon suit. (Athena never wore one - so we could know for sure)

If Athena had her jacket on you could totally do the SOME ARE PROGRAMMED TO THINK THEY ARE HUMAN bit from the first season openers.

Wonder what accessories they will have? Maybe the Michael Angeli set will have some laundry to fold, or a baby Hera. Duty blues Helo came with.....a gun. Pretty unexciting. Flight suit Helo came with lots of goodies- a med kit (and a weirdly simian hand to hold it with), extra gloved hands, a gun, a helmet, and an anti-radiation kit. If you get the deluxe model, he can microwave MREs by holding them. He also has the Miniseries gun, whereas duty blues Helo has the S1 gun.

Chief came with an assault rifle, a rocket launcher and a medkit. HotDog had a helmet and extra hands, and a gun.

Hotdog has extra hands? :shock: Why does this worry me? :)

Helo has extra hands, too. Maybe I should repost my photoessay from when I got the Chief and Helo figures.

Hmmm, these extra hands things puzzle me. If Grace did some kitsch Sinbad movie and played Shiva, she'd have extra hands too. :silly:
