Intergalactic spaceships that are powerful enough to shuttle heroes and villains across a variety of sci-fi universes at the speed of light are now small enough to fit in your hand (or on your bookshelf). Hasbro’s TITANIUM SERIES, a line of die-cast collectibles featuring intricate micro-detailing and action features, will be available nationally in early 2006 and is expanding to include new 3” vehicles, 3.75” figures and TRANSFORMERS robots!

The first wave in January 2006 will feature the following Star Wars 3” vehicles: speeder bike (with Imperial scout trooper and features a rotating gun turret); Republic Attack Cruiser (with working landing gear); Clone Turbo Tank (with working wheels); and a Limited Edition White TIE fighter (with opening cockpit). Each vehicle comes complete with a display stand.

Also available in January 2006 will be the TITANIUM SERIES Ultra Vehicles. These hefty die-cast vehicles feature moveable action features and include a premium display case. The first vehicles available are the ARC-170 Starfighter (with opening cockpit) and the Trade Federation Droid Fighter (with rotating cockpit).

Darth Vader and Boba Fett will be the first Star Wars 3.75” figures available from the TITANIUM SERIES Collection. The intricately micro-detailed figures each include a custom base and premium display case and will be available in March 2006. Collectors will be interested in limited-edition versions of each figure featuring a patina finish.

Throughout the year, the TITANIUM SERIES universe will continue to expand with the addition of vehicles and figures from TRANSFORMERS and Battlestar Galactica: The expansions will feature the following:

TITANIUM SERIES die-cast collectibles, to be introduced in July 2006, will include a variety of unique 3” robots as well as fully changeable 6” robots. Each one comes with a display base.

The TITANIUM SERIES Battlestar Galactica line will be available in June 2006 and will include 3” vehicles and 3.75” figures from both the classic and new TV series.
The TITANIUM SERIES Collection vehicles and figures will be available at toy stores and mass merchandise outlets nationwide. Suggested retail price for the collection: 3” vehicles and robots: $4.99; 3.75” figures and 6” robots: $15.99; and ultra vehicles: $19.99. Recommended for children ages 4 and up.

Battlestar Galactica is licensed by Universal Studios Consumer Products Group, a unit of NBC Universal. Inspired by the classic series, Battlestar Galactica is one of television's most critically-lauded shows and is currently in its second original season, airing on SCI FI Channel every Friday night at 10pm ET/PT, and has just been renewed for a third season of 20 additional original episodes.
