Wheeljack’s Lab Buys and Sells old and used Battlestar Galactica Toys

Younger generations may only remember Battlestar Galactica as the re-imagined series that ran for 4 seasons in the mid-2000s. However, the series originally gained fans during the run of the original television series in 1978-79. In this series, the public first met the threat of the Cylons, robots who were determined to take out humanity.

As with the show title, there have been multiple lines of Battlestar Galactica toys produced by multiple companies. The most classic of these lines was Mattel’s Battlestar Galactica. From 1978 to 1979, Mattel produced this toy line in response to the popularity of the original series.

Luckily for Mattel, Battlestar Galactica remained popular through 1979. Thus, the company produced a second series of toys for the masses to collect. Unfortunately, this series was in some ways smaller than the prior series.

Series 2 consisted of only 4 action figures:

  • Baltar
  • Boray
  • Cylon Commander
  • Lucifer

Luckily for fans of Battlestar Galactica, Mattel also produced several 12” figures as well as some gift sets in 1979. So, collectors were able to get their hands on:

  • A 12” scale Colonial Warrior
  • A 12” scale Cylon Centurian
  • A 4 Figure Gift Set containing:
    • Ovion
    • Cylon Centurian

  • A 6 Figure Gift Set containing:

Bio: I am the founder and owner of Wheeljack’s Lab pop Culture and Toy Shop. My vision has always been to reunite customers with their favorite childhood toys and pop culture, triggering fond memories, and reigniting their imaginations. Every day, I work in the “lab” where it is Christmas 365 days a year. I scour the internet, like when we had the Sears Catalog of yesteryear, for the next great treasure. Then, I await the arrival of the postman as if he were Santa Claus himself and helping collectors worldwide with their versions of Christmas. Every day as a vintage toy buyer is an absolute joy!
