The Colonel tigh Limited Edition Collectible Figure is an 1/6-scale mixed-media figure, and is part of the Amok Time release circa 2008, following their take-over of the Original Series license from Majestic Studios after its dissolution in 2007.

As is typical of 1/6-scale mixed-media figurines, this piece features multiple points of articulation (rotating head, arms, legs), is clothed using materials that replicate the look of the costume worn by the character, and includes certain accouterments.

To aid in the display of the figurine, the piece comes with a two-piece display stand consisting of a display base with the show's logo and the support arm that cradles the figure around its torso.

The figurine was officially cancelled in 2010, when Amok Time's license for the Original Series 1/6 scale line expired.[1]

Accessories

The figure was billed as featuring "classic BSG accessories" and display stand, and accessories were not itemized in sales descriptions from the Amok Time's online listing circa 3 March 2008.[2]

Outfit

The ensemble worn by Tigh are his duty blue uniform (jacket and tunic with black waist belt) and black knee-high boots.

Prototype

A prototype for this figure was shown at Toy Fair in 2008, and displayed alongside Adama and Athena figurines on a replica of the upper command section of Core Command.[3][4]

Face Sculpt

A point of comparison to Majestic Studios' figures, Amok Time's prototypes featured greater accuracy on their likeness to the character whom portrayed them.

Head sculpts for the prototypes were art directed by Amok Time's Charles Eugeni and Paul Lazo, and executed by Joy and Tom Studios.
