The story of Battlestar Galactica may be finished, but the merchandising potential will continue forever... even if the products seem a little familiar. For example: A new version of last year's Cylon Toaster, but new(ish) and improved!

This year's SyFy San Diego Comic-Con limited edition exclusive*? A new Battlestar Galactica toaster with added LED eye and toast message:

If you're wondering why the upgrade, they're probably just trying to steal back some of their thunder after the announcement of the very similar Star Wars Darth Vader toaster:

Yes, I know; a Darth Vader toaster doesn't have the same double meaning pun as the cylon model. Me, I'm holding out until they add a soundchip so that James Earl Jones' voice says "Luke, I am your toaster," followed by Mark Hamill screaming "No! It can't be!"

* - Weirdly, despite being "produced exclusively for Comic-Con," you won't be able to buy it at Comic-Con; it's only available on NBC's website. Don't ask me how that works.
