Exciter, those are fantastic!! I hope you don't mind me asking: Are the instructions available online somewhere and around how much did the Viper cost you to bricklink? I would love a Viper...or two...or a squadron. B)
Yes, the instructions are available on EBay, but are copyrighted and I can't distribute them. I'd say the Viper might be around $50 to Bricklink, depending on how much you can find available from one seller.

Man this are out of this world!!! I have always wondered whether if Lego would release a UCS Galactica some day.. but until then.. these are definitely the way to go :)

I may finally be done with these after several months of Bricklinking, MOD'ing, and tweaking. The Cylon Raider is pretty much a UCS size set and is massive & heavy.

2 ships from the classic Battlestar Galactica TV Series

Classic Cylon Raider - 1820 pieces
Viper Mark II - 325 pieces

We have had some bad fires here in Perth this Summer and a friend of mine is a fireman and was happy to see this display.
I thought it was cool so wanted to share.

My collection's now grown to include all of the Original Trilogy Microfighters and Jakob Liesenfeld-designed Stormtrooper variants, various exclusive Minifigures, the Imperial Shuttle Tydirium and the Inquisitor's TIE Advanced Prototype. I've also just added some vintage-style action figures to my collection, but I'll post about that on the Hasbro Modern Collection forum.

You can see my whole collection at the link in my signature.

While I'm more a fan of the re-imagined series, hot dang, those are such great BSG ships!
Amazing job. Have you considered trying a Mark 7 Viper?

haha, I go through your picture and like a kid with hockey cards, I say "got it, got it, got it, need it, got it, need it, got it, got it... "


Since I moved to Chicago I haven't had enough space to display any Lego, but I've been trying to stay up to date with the expectation that we'll eventually be settling down and buying a place here. Once that happens, they all get opened. Here's what's piled up in those 7 or so years:



Everything older than this is in bags crammed into big rubbermaid bins in the closet.

Someday...

I just wish I had photos of all the stuff that's put away... it's a full set of OT Lego basically, including all the UCS sets. I'm only missing the 10198 Tantive IV, the UCS Death Star II, and the first Millennium Falcon release.

Then there's the classic stuff...

Full sets of Pirates I and II including Islanders, most of the classic castle lines after the first one - Black Falcons, Lion Knights, Forestmen, Wolfpack, Black Knights, Dragon Masters, Dark Forest, Royal Knights... full sets of Classic Space, Futuron, Blacktron I and II, Space Police I and II, M-Tron... I honestly have no idea how much space all this would take up to build and display and I'm sort of afraid that I'll never have enough room to do it.

Wow, that's an impressive collection! LEGO is tough to display. To really appreciate each set it needs to have ample space. Doesn't take long to run out of room.

Awesome! Can't wait to see it all built! (One day!)
I do have photos of some of them... a few years ago I was building everything, ordering any missing parts, taking photos, and then putting them all back away. Here's a bunch, but not all of it:










I have photos of Royal Knights and the Pirate stuff... but that's where I ran out of steam. I just need to get around to cleaning them up.

So far all were released in Series 1 and 2. I do also have the Series 4 Y-Wing, but technically that's from RO...

Casting call - Rebelscum is working directly with LEGO to find fans who have cool LEGO SW collections.

Dust off your camera because LEGO is looking to showcase collections from the Star Wars community, and Rebelscum has been tasked to assist.



Do you have - or know someone who has - a collection that deserves to be limelighted? It doesn't have to be the biggest, most complete or amazingly well displayed collection; it just needs to be Star Wars! LEGO is looking for anybody who is proud of their sets and wants to take part in a secret 20th anniversary project.

If this sounds like you, or anyone you know, then we want to hear back! All you have to do is send an email to me at jeremy@sgz2008.com with your name and a single 'head shot' photo of the LEGO Star Wars display. No photography skills are necessary, so if you're a point-and-click photographer you won't be excluded. We will pass it on to the LEGO community engagement team, who will reach out to explain the full details of the project.

I went back and ordered the parts for the Space Slug set that I'd forgotten about;

I finished up 10195 - Republic Dropship w/ AT-OT this morning. My son and I broke out some of the other Clone Wars and ROTS sets for play time.
