"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens."

Well, I spoke with the folks at Moebius Models a little over a week ago about the possible drop date for the Raptor model.  They told me then, maybe 7 more weeks.  So at this point, maybe 5 weeks until we see a Raptor from them?  I have had the kit and the armament kit on order for a while as I am sure many here have as well.  Just putting this out there for anyone who might have been curious.  I personally trying to resist the urge to pick up one from Bad-Azz models/jt-graphics.com but I might have to give in to temptation. :)  I want one!

Don't feel bad; That kit,and the separate weapons package was supposed to have been released by the end of 2016;The probable reason for the delay was moebius was having to re-negotiate the licensing agreement with NBC/Universal,the company that owns BSG,and everything related to it.

According to A recent ad by monsters in motion,not only will they have the raptor,and the weapons package;But also the photo etch set by paragraphix for the raptor.

I intend to get two,the standard raptor, and the strike raptor.

I'm hoping that their next BSG subject will be A classic cylon centurion,or,perhaps A Heavy raider; We shall see.

good luck with the models i am not getting them right now i am working on building a Lego version of the recon raptor and Attack version of the raptor hope to have them built here within the next few weeks.

Vampire, I would love to see some pics of your progress!  I bet they look sweeeet!!!

Vampire, did you do up a viper in Lego already? I know they did one up on a Lego site in hopes of it going to production but stalled due to licensing.

The very same thing that delayed the moebius kit,probably

yes i built two vipers pics are up on my page here on this site i built them from instructions i got from ebay or from a website title brickstruct.com i bought the Lego pieces from a website title bricklink.com i also built a Landram also and yes the delay and take down from the Lego website was due to Licensing problems. once i have my two raptors built i will be posting pics.

Thanks for the info. Now we just need someone to do a full on Battlestar!!
Never mind, it turns out there are a few out there. Some are massive (43,000+ pieces)!:(

Once the kit does come out I may have to commission someone to build it for me. I am not talented enough to do it myself. But it does look great and I cant wait to see it. 

I REALLY wish they would put out a B&C raptor kit.

Just got my Mobius Galactica kit a couple of months ago; waiting on the detail kit from Shapeways before I put it together.

Bad-Azz,thru JT graphics,actually has that kit in that particular version out; It's $250,though.

yeah, Bad-Azz has a Raptor, actually several Raptors in different configurations.  If Moebius doesn't do something soon, I might just have to drop the $$$ on a Bad-Azz Raptor.
