Available to buy: your own frakkin' 7ft Cylon

Oh, for the love of Gods

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

If you're a really, really big fan of the recent reinterpretation of Battlestar Galactica and have $8000 not doing anything, you could invest in your very own 7ft-tall Cylon Centurion.

According to Sideshow Collectibles, each one is hand-built by a gentleman called Fred Barton of Fred Barton Productions, Los Angeles. And it's all approved and everything by Universal Studios.

The towering replica features the "haunting visor light of the robotic soldier synchronized to the menacing, eerie hum" of the machine determined to destroy mankind.

A non-refundable, one-time deposit of $3950 (£1987) is required to purchase the Cylon Centurion from the series - surely the best sci-fi since Babylon 5. Go on, argue it, you know you want to...

The life-size figure costs $7900 (£3975) and is constructed from a fibreglass body with hand-machined aluminium, brass and acrylic detail. It's shipped approximately eight weeks after order, presumably that's how long it takes to make one.

It says here that shipping costs aren't included - oh, felgercarb...
