A prototype Cylon helmet from the production of Richard A. Colla's sci-fi TV movie Battlestar Galactica. The tyrannical Cylons were the film's main antagonists, and continued their campaign against humanity's Twelve Colonies into the follow-up series.
This Cylon helmet is one in a series of design prototypes created based on concepts by artists Ralph McQuarie and Andrew Probert. It is constructed of a gray vacuformed plastic top with a gray painted, rigid foam bottom affixed with tape. The interior is marked "#3 Helmet Design." The helmet is in good overall condition with some scuffing to the plastic.
