    Anybody ever wanted to get one of those helmets from MASK? I know I did. You know I'm surprised no one has done any of these before. Or have they?

    As much as I depise "Hey, I wanna see that too." posts....er, I wanna see that too. LOL...

    Actually as a kid, I was very interested in the "communication watches" they all wore to alert them to return to Boulder Hill. Anyone made (or thinking of?) making one of these? ;)

    ... Ohhh I'd really LOVE to have a Cliff Dagger "TORCH" Mask - that for me always was
    the coolest looking of them all ... that Mask just looked so * cool somehow ...

    My Dad has all of the MASK toys... ALL of them. Most still in their packaging. I wondered why no one has done those helmets yet.

    I hadn't thought about Mask in a long time, but yeah... Mask helmets would be pretty cool. I've never seen any wearable replicas... that does seem odd know that I think about it. I wonder why no one has tackled this.

    Good idea. I can not remeber his name but the one bad guy that rode the motorcycle - that was a cool helmet. Plus Condor Helmet - Good guys Motorcycle was also cool.
    good times, good times.

    I got the idea from seeing a SW helmet of a trooper that sort of resembled Matt Tracker's helmet. I thought it would be awesome for someone to create them, so I posted the idea here. I've been trying to look for screen caps of the show for the helmets, but so far none of them are big enough or clear enough.

    There used to be a child-size wearable Miles Mayhem mask available in the shops - It was a voice-changer that also squirted water.

    This was one of my favourite cartoons in the 80's (for this reasom me and a good friend of mine are developing a movie adaptation of this cartoon... With Keifer Sutherland as Matt Tracker and Jhon Travolta as Myles Mayem... Silly? :D )
    If someone will make wearable helmets of the main characters I think I will cry.

    I've scanned my first promo comic of MASK - the cover has very clean and nice sketch of Matt Trakker's Spectrum, which you never got to see in the comics or cartoon - man. I'd love to see the helmet in real.

    [​IMG]

    EDIT: Arrgh. They've scaled them down - I've got them bigger in size.

    BTW: Did you know that the character are based on real people?

    Like Lech Walesa as Miles Mayhem?
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    And Frank Zappa as Sly Rax?

    Billy Idol as Floyd Malloy... he even got that lips-up thing :eek:

    Still working on a Robotech helmet sculpt right now, but this would be fun to tackle after that. I still remember watching it on Saturdays, and thinking Matt Tracker and Brad got the better vehicles out of the deal. I mean, who doesn't want a helicopter/motorbike?. :lol

    Consider it well on my radar. I'll probably take a run at it right after this Robotech helmet gets well on it's way. :angel

    Nothing new to report just yet, still clearing a few other projects off the table first. Any consensus on which helmet people want done first? I was thinking Matt Trakker to start with, and see how things go from there. I hope to get started on a sculpt pretty soon, but don't want to snow myself under with good intentions along the way.

    Thoughts on helmet choices? I seem to have a large cranium myself, so if it fits me it should fit most others. Are we looking for room for fans, amps, etc? Also, clear or tinted lense (I'm thinking thin acrylic formed under heat)? Share your ideas and we'll get something on the go.

    Seems only fitting to do Trakker's basic model first :) Next should be Miles Mayhem's with the huge front lenses.

    I'm finding a lot of good reference on the front of Trakker's spectrum mask. Anyone have closeups of the back of the mask? I don't know if it's smooth or not, and I'd hate to miss a big detail back there. Any straight-on closeups of the toy helmet would be great, though I'm finding a lot on the cartoon-style helmet.

    EDIT: Ok, I've converted the pic in JPG - that's the clearest and cleanest drawing of Spectrum along with Matt's head to estimate the size, if you assume he's 6'.

    Looks great, but what I'm really missing is any info on how the back of the helmet looks (pics, screencaps from episode, even closeups of the toy helmet). I want to know if it's just a smooth curve, or if there's any surface detail on it. I'm finding lots of side and front shots so far but nothing showing the back yet. I should be picking up supplies to make a head and shoulders bust of myself next weekend, so sculpting should follow not long afterwards.

    I appreciate the reference help, guys.

    Got 'em too. My computer's a little slower, though. Thanks to both Juno for the link and Ramiel for the grabs. I think we have what we need for this one, and clearly some good references for the rest. Good teamwork, guys.

    Do the orange rings around the neck seem like hard parts, or a softer material? LMK what you think.

    I'm in agreement. ;) I've got a few ideas on how to tackle the neck, but I'm also open to suggestions if someone knows the "best" way to achieve this result.

    Yeah in some comics you could see, how Matt turns his head and the mask moves with it and I don't have any clue how this could be applied on the real Spectrum...

    While I was wandering randomly through RPF, I found some similarities between the Spectrum and the Speeder Bike mask from SW, found in the SoCal Prop party thread.

    [​IMG]

    Especially the visor, eye-shield and the front mouth piece, but more modified...
    What do you think?

    I noticed the similarities as well, and thought I might take a few cues off those angles (this does not mean recast for those keeping score ;) ). Good to see others noticing as well, because it means I'm not crazy... mostly. :p

    This looks like it would be an awesome project.
    I agree you would probably have to do the leaders first.

    Hondo McLean's mask would be good too. Being a half mask might be a little easier.

    Brad Turner's (the MASK agent with the motorcycle/helicopter) would be the one that I would really want. He was the first one that I bought and my favorite for the longest time.

    I agree the Cliff Dagger's Torch helmet looks pretty cool. I would also liked Sly Rax's Stiletto mask. Might be that he was my first Venom toy though. He was one of my favorite characters on the show.

    Nice thread and the masks did rule.

    Best theme song to a cartoon ever.

    Masked Crusaders, working overtime,
    Fighting crime! Fighting crime!
    Secret raiders who will neutralise,
    as soon as they arrive, at the site!

    Trakker's gonna lead the mission,
    And Spectrum's got such su-per vision

    Sorry guys, not much happening yet. I'm still clearing a few projects and trying to finish my clone for C4, so things are on the back burner for the moment. Planning to get back to it afterwards, though.:)

    Sorry, I missed the earlier bumps or I would have updated you sooner.:$

    I had so many of these toys as a kid. Wish I still had them.
    I have all the cartoons on DVD.

    I would love to have not only the MASKS of MASK but the costumes as well. Maybe throw in a few vehicles.

    Man the memories.

    I still have the toys (even the volcano/base... Well is not a wise thing to put a gas station at the feet of a volcano, but... :D )
    But I have to agree... A costume would be so cool, and a Matt Tracker costume should be really easy to do... Except for the mask, of course...:)

    The watch would be good prop as well.

    Cool thing about MASK... You don't have to be a skinny buff guy to dress up like one of the characters and still look the part.

    I would have get the mask before even starting on the rest of the costume. The costume just wouldn't work without the mask.
