CAPRICA Returns Early! Plus, BSG Figures!

Big Caprica fan? Then you’ll probably be very, very pleased to know that the SyFy hit’s highly-anticipated return is going to be happening even sooner than originally planned! Here’s the story direct from the source at SyFy!

NEW YORK – September 9, 2010 – The highly anticipated return of Syfy’s critically-acclaimed series Caprica will come even sooner than anticipated. The second half of season one will now premiere on Tuesday, October 5, 2010 at 10:00PM ET/PT, the channel announced today. Fans will no longer have to wait until January to watch the series exciting kick-off, as the citizens of Caprica deal with the chaotic aftermath of the mid-season finale’s harrowing events.

The second half of season one will transport us from stunningly vivid, twisted Virtual realities to the fascinating outer worlds of the 12 Colonies. Along the way, revolutionary tensions rise, family power shifts and our characters grapple with the physical and emotional consequences of their questionable decisions. As the season races towards its stunning conclusion, each episode lays the groundwork for the inevitable (and brutal) clash between the new Cylon race and its human creators.

“Though we initially announced the January return of Caprica, we still had hopes of finding a way to get the series back on the air sooner,” said Mark Stern, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, Syfy and Co-Head of Content for Universal Cable Productions. “We’ve been able to successfully re-work our schedule, and are thrilled to bring the show back during what is traditionally Syfy’s most-watched time of the year. The outcome should also please fans who expressed their wishes for a shorter mid-season hiatus.”

Caprica stars Eric Stoltz (Daniel Graystone), Paula Malcomson (Amanda Graystone), Esai Morales (Joseph Adama), Polly Walker (Sister Clarice Willow), Alessandra Torresani (Zoe Graystone), Magda Apanowicz (Lacy) and Sasha Roiz (Sam Adama).

Caprica will immediately follow new episodes of Stargate Universe (Tuesdays @ 9PM).

The third season premiere of Sanctuary will now launch in its former timeslot on Friday, October 15 at 10:00PM ET/PT immediately following Friday Night Smackdown on Syfy at 8:00PM ET/PT.

Now, fans for whom Caprica does not fill the void left by Battlestar Galactica’s departure might want to check out the collection of action figures we’ve got for sale over at CmdStore! From Baltar to Six, Stabuck to Tigh, we’ve got 2-packs, adorable Mini-mates and much, much more!

New Figures from Battlestar Galactica

Like any quality sci-fi franchise, Battlestar Galactica will live on through spin-offs, books, comics, toys and, of course, its loyal fans. You can’t go to a convention nowadays without spotting a Tigh here or a pair of Sixes there or meeting one of the stars at a signing or panel. As ‘geekdom’ continues to grow in popularity, more and more fans are getting in on it. Which is why, it seems, the folks at Diamond Toys are releasing a bunch of new figures long after the rebooted BSG’s finale.

Joining the already-released William Adama, Cylon Six (red dress version!), Apollo and Duala are the likes of Admiral Helena Cain, President Roslin, Starbuck, Boomer and a couple Cylon Centurions. They’re available for pre-order already, so if you’re looking for that one figure or set that’ll complete your collection, head on over to CmdStore’s Battlestar Galactica section and check out what we’ve got!

You can also grab seasons of BSG over at Amazon.com!

Battlestar Galactica: Upcoming figures!

Battlestar Galactica may have come to an end (paving the way for the Caprica prequel), but the figures based on the hugely popular show are still available and yet more are being released later this year, showing that you can never keep a good sci-fi epic down. Joining figures of characters like Caprica Six, Brendan Costanza and Lee “Apollo” Adama are two new sets in August and September 2009.

The first set, shipping in August but available for pre-order, contains Admiral Adama, President Roslin, Helena Cain and President Lee Adama. And in September, look for more figures to arrive in-stock and help you get through those tough Friday nights without BSG!
