Awesome--I assumed they were going to be action figure vaporware because the arrival date kept being pushed back and back and back. This is from Big Bad Toy Store:

As soon as they've shipped it. (I use the "pile of loot" thing - to combine shipping)

Voilà!

Ok, so, who's who? :think:
They chose a S4-Athena-promo for "Boomer" (left) & a S2-Boomer-promo image for "Athena" (right).
The left blue-dressed one has a "medic" case and the right flightsuited one has a helmet.
On the middle, there is a set of rank pins in its box.

I hadn't noticed it before but Athena and Boomer shoot differently!

Notice that Boomer is using a "cup and saucer" grip on her pistol, while Athena is using a Weaver grip. I wonder if the difference is due to Mrs. Park's shooting style evolving or her effort to differentiate the two characters.

I like how going by the photos on the front of the package Athena looks more like the "bad" twin.

And, yes, packaging fail for using two Boomers on the back.

As a matter of fact, the right photo is the "Boomer serious pose", it's a S2 promo. (term from bsgautographs.com)

Saperlipopette: I didn't realize there were two Boomers on the back! (two promos: the Miniseries "crash on Caprica with Helo" scene & the Kobol's Last Gleaming 1 "Boomer practices" scene - they cut the part where she scares Boxey, which among other things probably triggered her first suicide attempt)

So it can't be character differentiation here, Chris... (good idea though, and I'll check other scenes. But there aren't many with Boomie holding a gun)

Isn't the Boomer on the left on the back the picture they were using for target practice in Season Two?

They are really gorgeous; I am glad these figures are the grand finale even though the accessories are incredibly lame compared to the other two packs. I may have to get the Lee and Dee set just to get some decent props for the girls when I buy them.

Nice! The figures themselves look better than the photos of them on the back.

Nope.

Here are the "original" promos for these four images:

Athena S4 promo

Boomer S2 promo

Boomer miniseries promo

Boomer KLG1 promo


The Boomer Target looks like this:
