Available to buy: your own frakkin' 7ft Cylon
Oh, for the love of Gods
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...
@ MIke and the rest of you lot.
Labour and labor? are you kidding me?! You suggest the ‘U’ is silent, it isn’t, it affects the accent of the ‘a’ and the whole pronunciation of the word. With proper pronunciation of the way you spell it, it would sound like ‘La’-‘Bor’ not ‘Lay’-‘bore’
Yanks, just give it up, I know you pride yourselves in ego inflation more than actually getting things right, so it's hard for you to acknowledge the fact that you speak ENGLISH, so you have no grounding to even try and defend your bastardisation of our language.
But this will carry on for as long as your ignorance requires for you to call a game you pick-up and run with an elliptical object 'football'....
A fool and his money are soon parted.
Star Trek Next Gen kicks ass and Buck Rogers is a classic but specicially speaking about films you cant beat 2001: A Space Odyssey, closely followed by the excellent Sci-fi horror Demon Seed.
And of course The Matrix figures in there too
Serenity and Firefly
Serenity was good, but will spoil Firefly for you if you watch it first.
Firefly was brilliant and is usually also available for cheap, as far as series collections go. You'll get more out of Serenity, too, if you've watched the series first.
BSG is worth watching, even if most of the political and logistics situations are contrived beyond belief.

8k for this, life-size fully functional model, I will pay :P
