Cylon Centurion Armor costume

Our Cylon costume armour on the set of Battlestar Galactica [2003]. The figure was a display onboard the Galactica, which was decommissioned as a war ship at the beginning of the series.

Parody VIDEOS: Centurion in distress!

Let's face it, Tricia Helfer isn't hard to look at, and that's not fair competition really, apples and oranges.  The new look of the robotic Cylons are also very impressive with their terrifying locomotive pursuit style. Despite all these gargantuan improvements to the look of special effects driven shows, computer generated magic hasn't been kind to the welfare of the classic centurions.  This photo is from the set of a SPACE commercial spoof by creative director Gord McWatters, heralding the return of the classic show to broadcast television for the fall of 2005, starring Scott Maple as the Cylon.

Resources and Credits


An early conceptual drawing by Ralph McQuarrie of the centurions with Boltar.
Later developed for production by technical designer Andrew Probert, the centurions would be seen in the "neoGreek" form as we know them today.  Interestingly, Mr. Probert had a hand in designing the look of the Back To The Future time machine (the DeLorean).

Scott Maple of Kropserkel provided 'classic' Cylon design costume and prop consultation for the Battlestar Galactica (2003) miniseries pilot in which one classic Cylon appeared onboard the Galactica's museum safely behind glass.

Photographs of our Cylon costume were provided for use with the Battlestar Galactica DVD collector's set (2003-2004).
