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.

Cylon one looks cool, and I dig the double meaning. But I like my toast toasted across the entire slice.
