Mattel Battlestar Galactica Action Figure Commercial

Mattel Battlestar Galactica Action Figure Commercial

Happy Friday!

Here is another commercial transfer, this it the original Mattel Battlestar Galactica Action Figure commercial from 1979, a new transfer of the original reel. 

It’s kind of ironic that this features mainly the ‘peg warming” characters like Imperious leader, Ovion and Daggit. Also, why does Starbuck talk like a robot?

  • I loved this so much I had to reblog it over at Weird Fantastic Toy Adventures!

    Hope that's ok! 🙂

    Thank you SO much for your site! It just makes me smile every day.

    Regarding the commercial, is there any way to find out who is doing the voice-over? He sounds familiar (like an actor who usually plays "bad guys") but I can't place him.

    Just wondered.

    Loved these toys as a kid. I remember finding an entire second assortment of these (including a gold cylon!) at a store on clearance for .49 cents each in 1980. Didn't even know they had made anything beyond the ones shown in the tv commercial. Shame there were never vehicles to go with any of them. I always thought it was odd that Mattel chose to make the vehicles so much smaller, and included tiny little figures that weren't compatible with these action figures.
