Battle Star Galactica Space Ships
While the Vertibird was not a new concept, these spaceship offerings from Mattel were some of the coolest toys produced in the seventies. The early ships fired missiles but a choking death early on caused Mattel to recall the toys and replace them with non removable missiles. Contrary to what has been written in toy publications (who should do their research!) the Land Ram was released.
This deluxe Battlestar Galactica playset was most likely not produced due to cost issues but what a shame, with all it's lights and sounds it would have captivated me as a kid for days.
