Battlestar Galactica (1978)

Lot # 130 - Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction - Silver Cylon Centurion Light-up Costume

Stock #111215

A silver Cylon Centurion light-up costume from Glen A. Larson's sci-fi television show Battlestar Galactica. The tyrannical Cylons were the main antagonists of the series, their campaign against the Twelve Colonies carried out by the robotic Cylon Centurions.

This version of the costume was used for close-up shots. It comprises a helmet (labelled "RS"); a collar piece; a pair of spaulders; a backpack unit; a chest plate; a pair of bracers; a thick leather belt with seven square 'battery packs' on the front; a heavy, dark grey chainmail skirt hooked onto the back of the belt; a pair of greaves; and an under-layer, consisting of a black Spandex two-piece jumpsuit and a pair of replica thick heeled boots with faux-silver-painted teardrop detailing like the originals.

The armour components are made from vacuformed plastic and feature a faux-silver chromed finish. Orange, black and white rectangular decals have been applied to the backpack and gauntlets, giving them a futuristic appearance. The under-suit features vinyl plastic panels on the thighs and upper arms, and raised ribbed detailing is present around the waist and arms. Multiple zips are present on the front and back of the jumpsuit. Located on the right side of the belt is an elasticated loop holding a faux-silver stunt sword made of plastic.

Internal electronics with several exposed wires are present on the inside of the helmet. A thick grey cable is located at the front of the helmet and runs down to a set of two 110-volt American transformers, with a plug in each; the thin cyclopean eye on the helmet displays a red strobing effect when switched on. Signs of production use are present on the lot, including scratches and scuffs on several pieces of armour, minor wear to the chrome finish and marks on the vinyl panels, while some adhesive has worn away, creating a looser fit for some of the pieces.
