Battlestar Galactica Goes Down the Drain, Literally

At long last!  How long has it been since Battlestar Galactica fans had a truly appropriate toilet paper dispenser?  Granted, this thing is more than a little creepy, I’ll freely admit.  But it is quite a clever DIY project — and suitable for true fans of the Battlestar Galactica world.

For those of you that have only been fans of the recent revitalization of the Battlestar Galactica phenomenon, I’d highly recommend looking back to some of Glen Larson’s original 1978 series.  This project seems to hail back to the days of the original production, at least in my humble opinion.

This unique homage is a DIY project made of welded steel.  The necessary paper product can be pulled from the Cylon’s mouth.  If Cylon’s can be said to have something like a mouth.   Let’s recap:  welded steel, cylon head, toilet paper.  Oh, and I forgot to mention the LED lights which seem like they might take the place of a nightlight.  Then again, for $100 plus shipping you have to be a very dedicated fan in order to commit to such a thing.  I mean, that’s a lot of double-play paper.

Ultimately, your overall appreciation of this special toilet paper dispenser will probably depend on whether or not you live with Battlestar Galactica friendly roommates – or, it may depend on whether or not you feel more for the people of Caprica or the Cylons.  That one is up to you, and I won’t judge you for that.

Perhaps you can convince your roommates and/or friends that this dispenser simply shows your support for the Adamas and Graystones – or that it is a souvenier from the time you spent fighting in the first Cylon War.  Then again, there is a rumored Battlestar film slated for 2012 release.

No matter.  You’ll think of some way to justify this piece of bathroom accoutrement.  If you’re interested in DIY and Battlestar Galactica then you will definitely want to check out this Battlestar Galactica PC case mod that we reviewed a while back. Or, if you want to embrace your inner geek, then check out this art made out of recycled ink cartridges.
