President of the Colonies, Laura Roslin. My absolute favorite character from Battlestar Galactica, and a figure that, unfortunately, never made it to the shelves. Well, naturally I took matters into my own hands, and it's been a long time coming, but I wanted to do it right.

The head and torso are from a diamondselect's Stargate Jennifer Keller figure. The face was just a simple repaint, adding some shading for light wrinkles, and reshaping for the eyes.
The collar of the jacket was cut down, along with some of the detailing. I molded on new details for the suit jacket along with a button down shirt.
Cut down the top of the skirt a little to better fit the torso and popped them together.
Gave the entire figure a repaint and added some show-accurate accessories (a book with the corners cut off and the Arrow of Apollo.)
For the finishing touch , I stuck her in my Colonial One Playset (something I made when I heard news of a Roslin figure being made) and now I finally get to display it proudly!

Excellent work! Not only is this a great President Roslin, it's also the ideal recipe for any number of "women in business suit"-type characters.

Thanks! Yeah, I'd like to find another torso to make a Tory figure

Great president very sexy, excellent likeness, she also reminds me Rachel from Friends, with a more tan skin she will looks just like her, great paint job and idea, since Diamond select leave the fans with a big bad taste when the line was cancelled.

Very bad taste! Lol- but thank you- I plan on recreating all the ones that never made it in the line

Thanks! And yeah, I've been dying to use that playset in my bsg displays- when I posted it on here I just used a print-out of the prototype. Haha.
