New Colonial Warrior/Cylon Centurion photo found

Post by Red Eye » Thu Oct 29, 2009 9:05 am

While looking at flickr for any Cylon or Galactica-related pictures, I've found this great group shot of a Colonial Warrior and a Cylon Centurion, taken in 1980 or '81 during the "BoG"-ride at Universal Studios.

I hope that most of you don't know it already...

I remember that ride...went there 5 or 6 times before they changed it to the A-Team ride. BoG and Knight Rider was the theme of that day...yes K.I.T.T. was there too. (Well a mock or Replica)

Awesome photo! Another great find Red Eye - thanks for posting it.
But, that Cylon is mis-dressed - he has his gauntlets on the wrong arms.
(Or the photo could be flipped, but I dont think so, from what I can tell of the writing in the signs behind them it seems right - not reversed)

P.S. I (HEART) K.I.T.T.

Maybe he is a "lefty" Cylon... :P

I vaguely remember this ride, because I was only like 7 or 8 years old at the time (I'm 33 now, lol). I remember being scared by some brown alien in a booth, and crying, lol, but the Cylons were awesome. I loved seeing KITT back in the day. Amusement parks were so much fun in the 1980's... you could get into Universal or Disneyland for like $20 or a bit over, and I remember Universal used to have people dressed up as the cartoon Transformers... it was so awesome. I think KITT even had his own "phone friend" line back then.

Your correct about the Transformers. One of the guys that worked on the BOG set till it closed went on to work as a Transformer. He quit a short of time after that because the Transformer show was much more demanding via the kids could come in anytime, compared to every 3 minutes with a 30 second act blasting Cylons. The Transformer gig they didn't leave for the most part.
