Battlestar Galactica Cylon Raider
The Cylon Raider is a space superiority fighter. This modern Raider is the CGI version designed by Eric Chu used in the re-imagined television series. Called Sparrow by the Colonial pilots, these were first encountered 40 years after the first Cylon War. This thing is a living biomechanical being, spacecraft and pilot rolled into one; truly a strange nemesis.
It’s a prebuilt and fully finished kit ready to display. It’s packaged in a colorful box that’s representative of space flight. The model is accurate, nicely done, and looks pretty decent for a pre-built. It has a very nice old-school 2-piece display stand that needs assembly. However, I found this type of display stand to be unbalanced and wobbly for this application.
The Bottom Line
My wife, who is a huge BSG fan, loves this thing. Two thumbs up. Thanks to Moebius and IPMS/USA for the review opportunity.
