    Plaid Stallions Mattel Battlestar Galactica Action Figure Commercial

    Happy Friday!


    Here is another commercial transfer, this it the original Mattel Battlestar Galactica Action Figure commercial from 1979, a new transfer of the original reel.

    It's kind of ironic that this features mainly the 'peg warming" characters like Imperious leader, Ovion and Daggit. Also, why does Starbuck talk like a robot?

    Adama was a peg warmer, too. Probably more so than Ovion.
    I am more than machine. More than man. More than a fusion of the two.

    The notification about the missiles no longer firing is sad, considering a kid died, and it ended an era for small toy projectiles.

    they were all peg warmers. the line suffered from not making enough of the heroes. I mean they never even made Apollo, or Boomer and who wouldn't want an Ed Begley jr action figure, LOL

    Great commercial! I think the only one of these that wasn't a peg warmer was the Cylon. I remember it took me months to finally find one at retail. The first time I saw any of these figures was an endcap full of Imperious Leaders (no one else) at the local K-Mart. Didn't stop me from buying one though!

    Really liked this line... as a kid I had a few of them (the non human characters)... ended up with just the Daggit (lighter colour version). A few years ago I picked up the darker orange version Daggit to keep him company.

    And Imperious Leader's pink skin always perplexed me.

    I never saw the second wave with Lucifer, Boray, etc. in any stores.

    Looking for the following Mego "Comic Action Heroes" accessories: Penguin's umbrella and Green Goblin's satchel/shoulder bag.
    And one Mego Comic Activator (working or non working).
