    Comments: Raiders are the primary assault vehicles of the Cylon Imperium. Deployed from immense Cylon Basestars, each raider is technically more than a match for the Colonial Viper, making up what it lacks in speed with superior armament and maneuverability. Making matters even worse for the human pilots of the Battlestar Galactica is the universal Cylon tactic of three-unit Raider wings, making almost any engagement a three on one battle. The only advantage an outnumbered, outgunned human pilot has over the formidable Raider is his innate talent for improvisation and abstract thinking.


    Points of Interest:
  • Classic Cylon Raider is based on the original Battlestar Galactica televison series, and is related to the current series in name only...or at least until some EU story links the two series somehow.

    The new 75159 UCS Death Star has been announced and it's 99.5% re-release of a set, at an additional $100, that was only retired less than 12 months ago. How do you feel about this addition to the LEGO Star Wars line?
    Ecstatic: it's LEGO Star Wars after all!
    Great: I didn't get a chance to buy 10188.
    Fair to middling: I like to build and it has some nice new additions.
    meh: the UCS range is meant to be special.
    Harrumph: 10188 is cheaper on eBay.
    Fuming: abject failure in market research and imagination.
