Majestic Studios made the toys. 

Lore-wise the original reptilian Cylons made the Centurions, after they were beguiled by a god-like being (sound familiar?) named Count Iblis. The Centurions ended up exterminating  the original Cylons and taking the name. Its a much more interesting tale than the reboot version IMO.

Not bad! I stopped looking a while ago just because like I said, I'm hoping for something better to come in the future.

I’m still a fan of the Ron Moore BSG backstory.  They just developed a lot of good stories out of the “Humans built the Cylons” idea.

But I still tip my cap to the old series for coming up with awesome designs. :hi:

It has some flaws, but the Toynami Beta is pretty freakin’ awesome.  Ratchet-joints in key spots and a nice heft to it.

There are some gaps here and there, but the bomber mode still looks good, and the fighter combo with the Alpha is hard to beat (assuming you luck out and get a good looking Alpha).

Not sure what they’re going for now, but I never regretted getting the Beta.

I could never get into any BSG except the original, which I loved.

Yeah, the Toynami Beta is nice but the problem with it is not itself but the Alpha that you mentioned. I want the whole package to be good. Since I waited this long already, (gladly) passed on the ET versions, I'm putting my money on Sentinel to fulfill my destiny.

Yeah, the Alphas are Russian-roulette to find a good one.

And even when you find a good one, there’s that fear that they’ll fail after a few transformations.

I almost pulled the trigger on a very nice Toynami Alpha and Beta recently to display in fighter mode. But I've got PO's on the Sentinel so I'm holding out. I hope I don't regret it. I really want that pair in my display case.

At 4 inches tall the MS Prime and NA Megatron are amazing. Off to start a new collection with my son.

NA Bumblebee and NA Insecticons are incoming. If these don’t disappoint we’ll see where this goes.

Beginning of the year always seems to be vinyl time.

And Eaglemoss models are ALWAYS broken.

Magic Square Light pf Justice and NewAge Agamemnon. There are different variations of each to choose from. 
 

They are both pretty amazing, sturdy, and have incredible transformation processes.

Don't do what I did...  I actually placed all of the decals on mine. LOL  Not sure if it was worth it but my OCD was kicking in and had to do it.  Now half are falling off of course.

Good advice. I looked at it last night and asked myself if A, did I want to take the time. And B, how long until they peel off?

I think I'm going to get some skull water slides for the boosters and leave the rest nekkid.
