    I can really see some hints of Dafoe in there. that is so cool, I wish they had gone with something similar for the film.

    I understand WHY, tey went with the helmet.... Instead of mask.... Regardless , this is still awesome , and hopefully with the new spiderman we get a
    Much more tense build up of osborn into the goblin over multiple movies

    Thanks for sharing. Should've used this. The helmet lost me from the get-go. :(

    I wasnt really a fan of the helmet and suit but that is easier to explain than a mask like this. However the mask is freaking creepy awesome!

    Having spent years watching "Spiderman And His Amazing Friends," I hated the suit Rami chose from the onset. REALLY like that mask. Shame they didn't use it, but hopefully it gets a second chance at life...

    Great find! I was hoping for something like that in the original film, I never liked the helmet and suit they went with.

    I used to think that the helmet made more sense from a "real-world" perspective. But when you think about it, how much more realistic is it that Osborn would have a Goblin helmet made up versus a Goblin mask? After all, he was insane and had the means to have either of those crazy things made.

    I wonder if it was a logistical issue, as makeup like that would take hours to apply and remove, whereas a helmet is quick to put on and take off. It could also be that the makeup is truly creepy, and it might've been a little too scary for their target audience.

    I supose you could make a case that they were worried it could come off as a little silly looking, especially with those ears, but the helmet was pretty much the same design, just in a static position.

    It's cool but I'm a little confused...

    So would this have still been a "mask" in the context of the movie? Something Osborn would actually put on and take off?

    If so, I would have much rather had this than the helmet. :thumbsup

    Unless it was supposed to mean Osborn's face was permanently disfigured into that goblin face.
    In that case... :unsure

    It would have been a mask. Goblin was never disfigured, which was something that took me quite a while to figure out. I really wish this would have been in the film.

    I never liked the helmet either. He basically wore a motorcycle helmet. It made it difficult to get into his performance.

    That particular mask has some weirdness, but I prefer the idea. Maybe they'll do that in the reboot.

    All comic book masks move. Even Iron Mans face changes shape. We need it to connect with the character.

    I understand why they went with the armor / helmet costume . ( He was hurling himself around on a jet for God`s sake ! ) But , this would have been very creepy with the right lighting !
    Has anyone tried a realistic comic book costume of Greeny on here ?

    That would have been so much better than that ridiculous mask. Alas.

    I agree with everyone. This mask rocks and I really wish it made it to the big screen somehow.

    If they head that direction for the new series I would be a very happy man! The expressions that mask can portray blows me away!

    Creepy that controls can mimic our facial structures like that. Kind of scary actually.

    I think Raimi went in the wrong direction with both actually. Looks to me like a "Why would a grown up wear a latex mask before he goes out to kill some fine gentlemen?" versus "Why would someone that comes up with a glider and a flightsuit even design such a helmet"

    I understand the extended back of the helmet because of aerodynamical reasons but the front makes no sense except that it should be a green goblin.

    Maybe if Norman was into LARP the mask would have made sense.
