Battlestar Galactica Starbuck Figure And Leoben Figure Double Pack
Diamond Select Toys have announced their latest doublepack, a Starbuck Figure and a Leoben Figure, which is likely to delight many of the programs loyal fans as it features one of TV's most bizzare and dysfunctional couple from the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica series.
After killing him several times and his having pretended she had a kid Jean St. Jean studios bring these two characters to life in the Battlestar Galactica Figures double pack.
Each excellently sculpted and finely detailed Starbuck Figure and a Leoben Figure stands approx. 7-inches tall with 18 points and screen accurate accessories.
Lieutenant Starbuck from the re-imagined Battlestar Galatica TV series has been described as "one of television's most complex, ever-evolving characters", the role of Starbuck has changed over the run of the series.
In the first series she evolved from a person who "didn't value her own life," thus inspiring her readiness to die for her shipmates to someone willing to selflessly sacrifice their life for others because of her respect for all life.
Despite Starbuck being a women in the re-imagine serie she does still bear some resemblances to the original Starbuck.
Both of them are hot-headed, cocky fighter pilots, considered the best in the fleet, with a tendency to challenge authority and get into trouble.
They are also both are avid gamblers and enjoy drinking, smoking cigars, and sex. Both have crashed and been marooned on a deserted planet, using a downed Cylon ship to make theit escape. and both are best friends with Apollo.
Kara, however, appears as a more rugged and grimy character described by USA Today as "the broken warrior, a young, idealistic soldier who has been fighting for all the right reasons, but has lost something along the way."
Leoben is a humanoid Cylon agent who portrays himself as possessing philosophical and religious enlightenment. And delights in playing mind games by engaging in disorienting and poetic discourse that entwine both truth and lies.
Starbuck first encountered Leoben aboard the Geminon Traveller and during the time she was forced to live with him on New Caprica.
Leoben is insistant that Starbuck has an important role to play in future events, but she refuses to believe him.
During a particularly difficult period and thinking she was losing her mind she seeks help from an oracle who tells her that Leoben is her spiritual guide and that her deceased mother, Socrata Thrace, is using him to get a message to her.
The Starbuck Figure And Leoben Figure stand approx 7-inches and feature multiple points of articulation, show accurate accessories as well as the latest scanning technology to ensure the most accurate sculpting possible from Jean St Jean Studios.
