When the letter "L" comes rolling in, you'll spot a familiar face...

Hmmm... "L" for "Leader"... a coincidence? :wink:

It looks like they had a fully articulated mask in this version which makes me believe there were two versions of the BOG Leader... the articulated one for the TV spots and promo photos and the static version for the ride.

Hope we'd be able to see the full clip involving the Leader some day...

That film footage was captured in Hollywood not Florida. They never built the Battle of Galactica in Florida even though they had the plans drawn up for it. It's a great find love seeing it thanks

Here's one more promo clip from 1984.

It has a nice close-up of a Centurion at 0:22:

Nice find. That another version of one I posted a few years ago. The version I posted was more of the Battle of Galactica. I like the close up of the AVG Cylon.
