The ships of Battlestar Galactica, immortalized in thousands of LEGO bricks

LEGO enthusiasts Garry King has a simple mission — to build the spacecraft of Battlestar Galactica out of thousands upon thousands of tiny plastic bricks. So far, he's constructed a sizable fleet of Colonial and Cylon craft.

King's built vessels from the 1978 Battlestar Galactica (he didn't forget the Cylons), but many of his builds are focused on the 2003 series we've come to know and frak. Here are some of his larger Colonial and Cylon builds from the television show.

Let's start with his most recent craft, William Adama's Battlestar Valkyrie from Battlestar Galactica: The Plan. This ship is 10 feet long, weighs 110 pounds, and is built out of 42,341 LEGO bricks.

The Cylon Basestar: 6,894 pieces ("I built it so it could spin around like it did in the BSG movie The Plan.")
