Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Battlestar Galactica

Date Added:March 21, 2013
Base Figure:Retro Cylon Commander
Height:8.00 inches
Completion Time:4.00 hours

This is the U-87 from the prequel series Caprica. The prototype that Zoe's avatar is trapped in, and of what will later become the military Cylons.
I used a Retro Cylon figure, removed pretty much all of it's armor, and went to town re-sculpting everything. I sliced down the head and repainted, then took off the chest plate and put a layer of clay over it, and went in with small tools to carve in all the little details. Glued the chest plate back on and then painted everything with 2 different blacks, 3 different grays/silvers, and a gold. The figure remains fully articulated, and it's not 100% show accurate, but considering the work that went into it, I'm pretty happy with the outcome.

Cool! Since you already tackled the domestic cylons and now you've taken care of U-87, you might want to try that awesome commander cylon from the last episode of Caprica! I'm amazed by how quickly you're churning these out.

Yes! I'm working on the construction cylon from the finale now, and then I totally want to tackle that commander!
