Battlestar Galactica is one of the more influential science fiction television shows. With an original series from 1978 and a re-imagined series from 2003, along with spinoffs (Caprica), books, comics, video games and more. It is a simple idea, a race of robots built by humans, known as the Cylons, rising up and engaging in war with their creators. But, a whole lot of political intrigue, sabotage, spies, and love triangles create a series that is hard to resist.
Garry King has built a massive Lego Battlestar Galactica MOC. This Lego Cylon Baseship is based on an original concept from Ralph McQuarrie. Who was a designer and illustrator for many famous Science Fiction properties, including Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars and E.T. Here Garry King has expanded on Ralph McQuarries sketches by adding all the details. With 16,387 Lego pieces and weighing in at 36.69 pounds (16.64 kg) this is one epic Lego model. The model is large enough to support 3 separate landing bays on the top of the Cylon Baseship. The color choices here help break up the monotonous grey, and combined with the Lego greebling really sell this Baseship.
