You guys see the mini-BSG kits from Konami yet? I got a hold of some of these here in Japan the other day. Konami produces some killer miniatures...the detail on these things is amazing. Check them out if you haven't seen them yet:

It's in Japanese, but it's OK...you can click on the pretty pictures. :)

So wait a minute.... You're IN JAPAN? How groovy is THAT?
Possible to talk about picking up a set for me? I hate getting stuff from ebay where I know they're jackin' me on price.

Drop me a line.

Well these Battlestar Galactica "trading-models" from Konami certainly do ROCK.

The workmanship and detail on these is superb. Even at this tiny size.

Just look at the detailing on this Battlestar. First, note that it is NOT the Galactica.

They even got the little Viper launch tubes on the sides of the landing bays right. :lol

The Viper...


kt-viper-kon-frontqtr.jpg


Complete with tiny pilot.

Unlike the recent Joyride Studios toy, Konami decided to PAINT the bottom of this Viper. :lol

The Konami compared to the Joyride.

The Cylon Raider...

Compared with Joyride...

The Cylon Warrior..

kt-cylon-kon-face.jpg



kt-cylon-kon-back.jpg


Compared to Joyride....

And last (and least.) is the Cylon Basestar... boring at this scale (but necessary to face off against the Galactica I guess...)

Great detail tho.

I say get a set if you can... they do not disappoint. :D

It looks like their Galactica is based on JIM CREVELING's model rather than the original studio model. Not surprising considering how hard it is to get good reference on the original.

Depending on the cost of a set, I might be interested as well. Let us know if you would be interested in getting hold of these for some of us over here.

OK, tell you guys what. I can get most of these easily. I'll post an interested thread in the Junkyard. If I get enough interest, I'll do an RPF special order.

Cool photos. Thanks for the comparison. Too bad they're soooooo tiny.

I think that the fact that they're soooooo tiny is the coolest thing about them.

Phase Pistol, I'll send you a basestar for your royalty. :)

I know, but I wanted the "secret" figure/ships too.
