Battlestar Galactica collectors be alert: Quantum Mechanix is set to unleash an extremely limited-edition replica of the Colonial “Blackbird” Stealth Viper. Built by Galactica’s Chief Tyrol, the Blackbird infiltrated the Cylon fleet and helped destroy the Cylon resurrection ship. Through QMx’s Artisan’s program, you can now own an authorized studio-scale version of this incredible sci-fi vehicle, built to order, customized and handcrafted by Hollywood model-making experts. The edition size is set to 40 pieces, selling for about $1200 each. Quantam Mechanix opens ordering on April 23, 2010, at 3 p.m. ET.
The Blackbird measures 13″ x 6.75″ x 3.25″ and is comprised of more than 120 resin, acrylic, styrene and brass components. All 40 replicas come with a brass and aluminum numbered plaque signed by actor Aaron Douglas, who played Chief Tyrol on Battlestar Galactica.
In addition, for the first time ever, we are including a laser-etched display case measuring 16.5″ x 9.5″ x 5.25″, complete with a diorama base, an equipment crane and two diagnostic stations.
Available for order from Quantum Mechanix. Retail price $1195 (some customization may incur additional fees)
