CLASSIC ART: WHEN 'BUCK' MET 'GALACTICA'!


Brought to life by the same talents behind Galactica, it would be no surprise that Buck Roger in the Twenty-Fifth Century would have certain similarities in production design and reuse of certain costumes, props and visual effects. Legendary artists Drew Struzan's 'comprehensive' b/w art for the BR pilot movie would even feature a couple of Colonial Viper images, accidentally supplied reference material having been sent to him from Galactica by Universal!

Every young girl loves a Daggit, as seen in this sweet advert for Muffit's debut as a string-pull talking soft toy in the late seventies. Released in the US, I certainly never saw this intriguing BG item ever make it to international toy stores back in the day, especially not in the UK market.

CLASSIC IMAGE: ATHENA THE BEAUTY!

The time has yet again flown by since we last had an amazing spotlight image of that Galactican beauty Athena, as played by the ever-lovely Maren Jensen. So, situation rectified!
