Battlestar Galactica

Battlestar Galactica Action Figures

Battlestar Galactica was a science fiction TV series that aired from 1978 to 1979.  The spin-off series Galactica 1980 aired for one season in 1980.  Many of you will remember the opening line of TV show:

"There are those who believe...that life here began out there, far across the Universe...with tribes of humans...who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians...or the Toltecs...or the Mayans...that they may have been the architects of the Great Pyramids...or the lost civilizations of Lemuria...or Atlantis.  Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man...who even now fight to survive—somewhere beyond the heavens!"

There were a number of different toys you could buy based on the show, such as the the models of the Colonial Viper and Cylon ship.  Some of you may remember that these toys were later recalled after a kid choked on one of the spring loaded projectile missiles.  Other toys included action figures, board games, puzzles, lunch boxes, and tons more.
