    Plaid Stallions Did anyone get the Gold Cylon Mailer as a kid?



    My friend John sent me an email the other day asking me about this, one of his "holy grails". He claims he sent away for this as a kid but a got a Hot Wheels car and an apology. Since then he's been looking for one in the mailer box to fill that void (i can relate to that) but it's never come up.

    When I started thinking about I realized I've seen them carded and of course loose but in all my years I've never come across one in the mailer box.


    So question to you all is, did you or do you have a gold Cylon in the mailer box?

    That's really interesting. I honestly do not remember how I got mine and I also don't remember if I've ever seen one in a single mailer box. Weird.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    I have one person who confirms they got it in the mail thus far. Another guy thinks he got it that way, I'll put him in the "maybe" pile.

    I did. I only got 4 of the figures as a gift (Starbuck, 2 Cylons and the green insect alien), but mailed away for the gold Cylon (that and Boba Fett were the only mail-aways my parents ever let me get). I remember finding out we were moving out of state a few weeks after I sent away for it and sweating out whether it would arrive before we moved.

    Definitely got one in the mail when I was a kid. Had two silver Cylons, the Ovion, and Starbuck and Adama, and had an extra comic book with the ad in it. Sent away and 4-6 weeks later, a white mailer box with this golden hunk of Cylon showed up. Lord, I still wish I had all those figures.
    "It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double tongues. There is iron in your words of death for all Comanche to see, and so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carries the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life... or death. It shall be life."

    I remember seeing that ad in comics and wanting a gold Cylon so bad. Alas, I only had bought three BSG figures at that point. I honestly don't recall anyone getting one of these in the mail (was the offer available in Canada too?) but the BSG toy fad didn't seem to last too long in our neighborhood.

    Probably not many went out because I just don't think these had the numbers that Kenner did with Star Wars. Only 6 figures were made, and you had to save proofs from 4 of them. I think I had 3 of the figures as a kid, and the packaging was long discarded.

    I have all the figures loose now...

    Except the Gold Cylon.
    PLEASE HELP ME WITH THESE CARDS:

    I remember seeing that offer in the comics and really wanting the gold Cylon!
    But I never did send away for it... Not sure if that offer would have been valid for Canadian residents, anyway.
