the baron's helmet

Postby barto » 18 Jul 2008 12:56

Was wondering what people thought about the Baron's mask :baron: . Why did he chose it and what's it made off, etc.

Is it some ancient relic made of iron chosen for some mystic symbolism? And/or a family heirloom? Is it some sort of super technologically advance piece of kit that lets him do all sorts of fancy stuff...

Why is it shaped the way it is? Anyone got any ideas as to what inspired it creator?

Darth Vader like perhaps!? Seeing as all of this was out round about the same time as Star Wars etc.
When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question. How would the Lone Ranger handle this?

It's definitely got a sci-fi tech / mystical energy to it, the freebie from the comic had the phrase: "Share the Baron's hypnotic power... dominate your friends."

I think it's to show power and produce fear.

What would scare you more? The Baron wearing his iron mask and only being able to see his eyes or Osama Bin Laden wearing his robes?

its an idea stolen from ned kelly the famous outlaw.
im told cobra commander now uses it as a waste paper bin
it certainly wont be made of iron.too heavy.nor will it be made of a vinyl material like the figure!!!
