Are you into Battlestar Galactica? Are you rich? If you answered, “Yes, extremely,” to both questions, I’ve got an important piece advice for you: Go buy yourself a life-size replica of a robotic cylon. For only $7,900 (I say “only” because we’ve already established that you’re financially endowed), you can have a 300-pound, seven-foot-tall fiberglass figure–complete with Kitt-style, sweeping-red-light eye slit–made by “Robot Man” Fred Barton himself.
Not having that kind of cash just sitting around (yet), I haven’t bought myself one of these, so I’d be interested to hear how the thing looks. Unfortunately, there don’t yet seem to be such realistic toy versions of the skin-job cylons. Then again, considering how weird it is to have life-like dolls around, maybe we’re better off without them.
