Majestic Studios Battlestar Galactica Guys to Go

Here are three Battlestar Galactica action figures I bought in 2008:



From left to right: Lieutenant Starbuck (Dirk Benedict), Captain Apollo (Richard Hatch), and Commander Adama (Lorne Green). Majestic Studios Inc. produced these figures to represent the original cast from the 1978-79 TV series, Battlestar Galactica. I was aware of the show, but I did not follow it. However, when I saw the figures online, I had to have them - non-Ken, non-Joe guys!




As I mentioned in an earlier post on these figures, after I received them, I favored Commander Adamo. He would make a perfect priest for my playscale settings. The others, I am going to put them up for sale. They are the Battlestar Galactica "Guys to Go" in the title of this post.

What can I say about them? Well, their bodies are shiny and their faces and hands are flat, matte. I do not like the way their arms fit into their shoulders or the way their upper legs fit into their hip area. But I do find them fun to pose. Here are two more photos of them posing:

Now,I would have purchase Commander Adamo if he were for sale! I like older men!

Beebo, the guys want to show off so that they can get new homes ;-D

Ms. Leo, older guys are harder to find in 1:6 scale, LOL, so I tend to keep them when I find them ;-D

You could always boil or hairdry their heads off and replace the bodies. Their neck joint fits Sideshow very well and can be made to fit Dragon, DiD and even Hot Toys bodies.

Of course, I like the Majestic body a lot, so if you swap the bodies and are willing to see these bodies...

Hi Marvey! Thanks for the suggestions for removing the MS heads. I have a Blaine and a Mattel Prince who could use new bodies. I won't be needing the Battlestar heads then so let me know if you're interested ;-D
