Stock #111214

A gold Cylon Command 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 and campaigned against humanity's Twelve Colonies.

The costume comprises a helmet; a collar piece; a pair of spaulders; a backpack unit; a breastplate; a pair of bracers; a pair of black sporting gloves; a thick plastic belt with seven square 'battery packs; on the front; a heavy faux-gold chainmail skirt; a pair of greaves; and an under-layer, which consists of a black spandex two-piece jumpsuit and a pair of black boots with thick gold-coloured heels. The helmet, backpack unit and gloves are all original production pieces, but the other components are replicas created for a Battlestar Galactica theme-park ride.

The armour components are made from vacuformed plastic and feature a polished faux-gold finish. Orange, black and white rectangular decals have been applied to the backpack and bracers, producing 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. A control box is present on the back of the belt;it features internal electronics which remain untested.

Internal electronics with several exposed wires are present on the inside of the helmet. Powered by a 9-volt battery and an internal switch, the thin cyclopean eye on the helmet illuminates red with a strobing effect. The costume exhibits scratches and scuffs on several pieces of armour and minor wear to the metallic finish. Burn damage is present on the left side of the control box.
