Diamond Select Toys has unveiled its exclusive San Diego Comic Con “Valley of Darkness” Cylon Centurion. Inspired by the Battlestar Galactica episode, this bloody Cylon shows you what happens when someone comes face to face with the killing machine.

Only available at the Diamond Select Toys booth (#2607) during this year’s San Diego Comic Con, the “Valley of Darkness” Cylon features a bloody hand-print from one of Galactica’s crew members unlucky enough to encounter the rampaging Cylon Centurions.  Intent on destroying the ship by any means necessary, these Cylon Centurions have only one thing on their mechanical minds…

Sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios, this spectacular release features an awe-inspiring level of detail – including working piston joints and an astonishing 20 points of articulation.  The “Valley of Darkness” Cylon Centurion will retail for $16.

  1. I’m not sure that I agree with Rodrigo above, but I understand the sentiment. A robot action figure simply “works”. The stiffness and ridigity of a toy reflects the way I would expect a robot to move and behave. By contrast, who could ever be more supple and agile than a “superhero”. That being said, I love my action figures. They may not “work well aesthetically”, but they work very well emotionally, at least for me. From my Mego action figures when I was a child (boy am I old) to the current crop of Marvel and DC figures, they satisfy in me that desire to “be” in a comic. Personally, my first thought when I saw the Cylon figure above was to think, “Boy, wouldn’t that look cool going up against my Captain America!” That works for me.
