I guess at that I'll pick up the Cylon, if I see it, simply to have the anomaly in the line and I don't know where else to get a 3.75" Cylon. 

Should be out around March according to Hasbro:

"The TITANIUM SERIES Battlestar Galactica line will be available in June 2006 and will include 3” vehicles and 3.75” figures from both the classic and new TV series. "


Also to note (not to get too off topic), but they will be adding Titanium Series Transformers!   :o

Some of these do look pretty good (IG-88, 501st clone) but it is another "branch" line, so I will probably pass.

At first I wasn't too keen on these figures, but after seeing the pics from Toy Fair, I think they are giggidy-giggidy great! Of course I am going to pick and choose specific figures.

Yeah I actually have to say I don't mind a couple of these.  The Stormies/Clones look nice and IG-88 looks pretty F'n cool.  If he were poseable I'd be all over that for display and one for play just to have a heavy metal cast droid like that.

Still though the pose of him battling Dash Rendar (I'm assuming that's what it's based on) is pretty damn cool.  Neat seeing in figure form what IG-88 looks like "in action".

I'm sorta pondering getting a few of these now...  I still think Fett looks bad though, as does Vader, so the initial figures aren't a hit.  Droids and a handful of others may be worth picking up, I dunno.

Yeah, I really dig the IG-88 Droid myself. The 501 looks good in it's pose too. Will get it anyway but doesn't the sandtrooper look like he's waving hi? When are these supposed to hit? I hope they hit(all of them) by comic con so I can have more funds to unload on Kubricks. ::)

One of my local friends found a Titainium Vader here in CO today. So I guess these are out already.

Does anyone know how the pewterized "Limited Edition" versions will be distributed?  Are they going to be a chase type of figure, or perhaps a separate wave?  I'd much rather get my hands on the regular version, but I'm curious.

It sounds like just the "regular" versions will ship in wave 1, then eventually the "chase" versions will be mixed into the wave 1.5 case.

According to EE, wave 1.5 includes:
2x Darth Vader (1 regular version and 1 patina variant)
2x Boba Fett (1 regular version and 1 patina variant)

Thanks Jeff!  I just tracked that down on EE too, I should've known to check there.  :)

I found a case of these this morning at a Wal-Mart in western VA.  Case ratio was 2 Fetts and 2 Vaders (no silver versions), and the WM only got the one case.  They rung up at 14.88 plus tax.  Haven't opened them yet, but they seem fairly nice.
