I didnt expect everyone to jump up and scream look out and shout! I need me one of those! LOL
I actually quite like it and it gave my wiki a fun angle to play with.
But, I knew when I did Legacy armor some would love it, some would hate it. I knew the same with the Legacy helmets which in general seem to have even more naysayers.
In issue 41, there are a couple of small pix of Chernan Ordo and you can see the mask is a seperate entity from the helmet, laid on the face:
That is what prompted the thread in the helmets section where I started a discussin on Mand'alors mask and what it may have looked like. I was trying to see if anyone knew of any canon source material I didn't that perhaps bridged the gap between the revan book where Canderous recovers the mask, to Canderous appearance in KOTOR II where he's clearly not wearing it or, it's been reforged into a helmet, to Legacy 41 where Chernan Ordo (possible realative?) has the mask that is clearly a mask on the helmet.
Personally, I dig it. I got alot of compliments on it at Wondercon as well, folks who were fans and costumers from other clubs and genre's really seemed to like it as well.
A couple people who presumably knew little about Mando EU by their comments even said things to the effect of "That guys must be the boss." "He looks like the boss." "He looks like he can wreck osik like a boss." LOL
So, the air of "leadership" from the mask was present.
At the end of the day, Im glad it's generating talk. Good or bad, it's being talked about so that makes it an attention grabber. I personally dig it. No worries though, my other helmets arent retired they just represent different times in the character story life. All will be rotated and worn. In fact we have a 6 hour event this coming weekend and I plan to cycle between all 3 at least once during the event.
